What Podcasting Means to Me

Oh, and radio too.

Initially, this post was going to be more along the lines of “the importance of audio media”, but that would be too much like me standing on a podium and telling the internet why this thing that I believe is right, and that’s not me. Instead, I’m just going to want to talk about why podcasting (yes, and radio too, what with volunteering/internships and all) is important to me. If you agree that’s awesome, and if you disagree, that’s awesome too, and I really would love to hear why in the comments.

Out of the Box: Two Great Podcasts that Defy Definition

I found out a little while ago that the podcasting medium presents a challenge to ranking things by category.  That’s because you have people doing such unique, incredible work that it really can’t be categorized.  I tried to shoehorn these podcasts into my previous (now deleted) list because I desperately wanted to recommend them (and because iTunes’ recommendations had all five podcasts on the old list associated with each other), but that didn’t remotely do justice to the work these producers were doing.  So if a podcast defies categorization, why not say so?  Furthermore, I expect this list to grow, just because of all the great work I’ve seen happening in the podcast community

3 Great Podcasts on The Unknown

So, some of you might remember these podcasts being in a “best of list” about the “weird and the unexplained”.  After listening to some of the shows on that list a bit more carefully, and thinking on my list a little more, I realized that by having some of those podcast on the same list I was kind of comparing apples and oranges.  Nevertheless, they remain great podcasts.  So my next two posts are going to be reorganized re-postings (not rewrites for the most part) of those lists.

So, as far as this list, these are great podcasts to listen to if you’re interested in hearing about strange legends or brushes with the unknown.

Positive Thinking for Podcasters: Three Thoughts About Stage Fright

In any kind of creative work, you’re going to run up against stage fright. Even in a medium like podcasting, where there’s no stage involved, it’ll happen, and it might actually be worse. Instead of just a single auditorium, it’s the entire world you’re going to be submitting your work to. I touched on this topic in my previous post and video, but I wanted to say a little more about it because I felt like a little more advice was warranted other than staying “stage fright happens”.   I think if I can give real advice anywhere, I can give it here. Through learning experiences with performance and public speaking in school situations, radio, and now podcasting, stage fright has become pretty familiar. And I definitely felt stage fright while I was getting Behind the Podcast off the ground, long before I ever even tried to record anything. So, with a full disclaimer that this may not work for everyone, what did I find worked for me in the process of putting together my first podcast?
