Coming together…slowly

I’m currently awaiting a new microphone to begin my first stage of my PodCast. Hmmm…saying that I should probably explain what a podcast is. Better yet, just click the in the “Subscribe!” section for more info.

The first stage will probably consist of me reading/performing a couple of selections. That being the case, all I need is a decent, ie cheap but effective, microphone (on order) and some editing software. I will start out using a free audio studio tool called Audacity, but I also have an older version of Cakewalk Home Studio that I may have to dust off. We’ll see what works best.

I am shooting for one PodCast a week at this point, but we’ll see how that goes.

I’ll blog my ever-changing plans as they come together, so check back often. I’ll notify those who know me, when the first PodCast is up, but you can add me to your current podcatcher subscription list and get it automatically once it is posted. (Once again, see the FeedBurner link).

Ok, I’ll chat atcha later.

  1. Hey Will.
    We saw your post on Podcast Alley, and had to visit your site. Sorry we didn’t respond in the forum. You’ll get much better sounding results if you add sounds and music post-production. We’ve spent the better part of the last month learning exactly how far Audacity can go and playing with different techniques. Even though it takes longer at first, sounds added postproduction can be perfectly integrated with the “spoken” parts of the show. Let us know when it’s up!
    By the way, we’re right across the Cooper in Mt. Pleasant, and we were exited to see that someone else in Charleston is giving podcasting a try!
    Maybe we should have a “Charleston podcaster” meeting sometime.

    Good luck, and be patient!
