Podcasting has recently caught my fancy. The audio-blogs on this blog are just toe-tips into the podcasting pool. What's keeping me from doing more podcasting and really giving it a whirl.
There are a couple of barriers here that I have not yet leapt over. The first is that I don't own an iPod. I'm a luddite, who doesn't like to listen to music piped into my ears in place of all those other sounds that intrigue me -- some would say, like the sound of my own voice.
But, confession time -- I'm a radio listener. How very retro. It comes from years of living where the radio was great listening -- New York in the '60 with all of the great dj's and then as an adult in the range of the "Great Voice of the Great Lakes," WJR.
Maybe that is why I am so interested in podcasting. Well, my hunt for an equipment list of what it takes to do a reasonable job at this has been answered. A podcasting kit with instructions and even a video for those of us who aren't very mechanical. I love instructions. Yes! I do all those hopeless things like read them first, too many times hearing "measure twice, cut once."
Now, all I've got to do is make the decision to really jump in the podcasting pool. Now, that's another problem.
