I am presenting a workshop entitled Podcasting for Nonprofits at the The John Nicholas Brown Center at Brown University. In lieu of a distracting and paper-wasting handout, I’ve compiled some links here for the participants:
How to Interview Someone – a guide to the basics of interviewing for radio/podcasting
Proper Microphone Placement – A $1000 microphone that is used improperly will just sound like a microphone being used improperly. Save the $1000 and get the placement right.
Microphone Types – What you need to know to pick a mic for you.
Recording Phone Interviews with Skype – Cheaper, easier, and (when done right) at least as good as dedicated hardware.
Promoting Your Podcast to Get More Listeners – Podcasting is better with an audience.
Why and Editing is Important, and How to Do It – When the interview is over, the work has just begun…
Transom.org – a great educational resource for anyone interested in radio
Pulling Back the Curtain – NPR’s On The Media did an eye-opening piece on what really goes into making radio
