Communicating with sound

Sound is a medium that matters. Your audience can listen to a podcast or a radio programme while they’re busy doing other things like walking, driving or keeping fit. You can add narration and sound effects to your animations and videos or leave it to music to set the mood. Sound is a medium the learning professional can master without the need for in-depth technical skills and professional tools.Perhaps it's time to listen in.

How I podcast: Bullseye’s Jesse Thorn

The beauty of podcasting is that anyone can do it. It’s a rare medium that’s nearly as easy to make as it is to consume. And as such, no two people do it exactly the same way. There are a wealth of hardware and software solutions open to potential podcasters, so setups run the gamut from NPR studios to USB Skype rigs. We’ve asked some of our favorite podcast hosts and producers to highlight their workflows — the equipment and software they use to get the job done. The list so far includes: Be...

How I podcast: Effectively Wild’s Ben Lindbergh

Last month, Spotify announced that it had paid $340 million for Gimlet and Anchor in a push to make its mark on podcasting. But while it’s encouraging to see media giants throw weight and money behind the medium, the beauty of the format has always been its accessibility. It’s the rare form of entertainment that’s nearly as easy to create as it is to consume. And now, thanks to the proliferation of devoted hardware and software solutions, it’s never been easier. Podcast studios run the range...

The Rodecaster Pro podcast board finally gets multi-track recording

Rode promised multitrack support for the Rodecaster Pro in February — and delivered with no time to spare. The Australian company dropped news about the firmware update at 10PM PT on February 28, bringing the podcasting board’s most eagerly awaited feature as part of its first update since hitting retail late last year. I reviewed the board just ahead of Christmas and found very little to complain about, save for the fact that the system recorded everything to a single track — a fact that makes ...

How I podcast

I’ve been podcasting in various forms for about a dozen years now. Sometimes it has been within the corporate confines of the various publications I’ve worked for and sometimes it has just been for myself. That’s the beauty of podcasting — there’s no overhead. It can be recorded on a terrible Skype line or meticulously crafted by an army of producers. You can do it for five listeners or five million. Do a five-episode miniseries or suddenly look at the calendar one day and realize you’ve been pu...

The Rodecaster Pro gets multitrack recording next month

As a frequent podcast host/producer/editor, I found very few things to quibble with when I reviewed Rode Microphone’s Rodcaster Pro. There was, however, one very big issue: multitrack recording. For all of the great things you can do on the fly, the podcasting mixing board wasn’t great when it came to post-production. Regardless of how many sources you input, they would all record to the same track. The company wouldn’t give me a straight answer about if/when it planned to address the issue....

Two Audio Stories That Should be Required Listening

While riding my bike home last night and driving into work this morning, I listened (on a safe little speaker) to two podcasts (episodes?) that (1) Reminded me what a powerful thinker and speaker Barbara Jordan was before her death (2) Introduced me to Will Hurd, the only black GOP member of Congress who used to be a CIA agent and whose district runs hundreds of miles along the southwestern border. (3) Show that a stories told without video or a slide deck can be as powerful as stories supported...

Anchor says it’s ‘powering’ 40 percent of new podcasts

Podcasting’s greatest asset has always been its accessibility — for consumer and creator alike. But even the simplest medium requires a little know-how, and Anchor’s overarching goal has long been to further lower the barrier of entry for those looking to take the leap. It’s not perfect, and it’s not for everyone, but the service done a pretty decent job leveling the playing field for many users. In fact, if Anchor’s self-reported numbers are to be believed, it’s been a major driving force f...

The Rodecaster Pro is a perfect centerpiece to a home podcasting studio

My podcasting rig is simple: Two microphones, a Tascam recorder, two XLR cables. I’ve upgraded things a bit in the past year — improved the mics, bought some foam windscreens and bought a pair of tabletop, foldable mic stands. But the principle is the same: take nothing I can’t fit into a laptop sleeve. It’s served me pretty well in the five years I’ve been doing my show. While friends were building soundproof posting studios in their homes, I went with a rig I could take with me. It’s a lot eas...
