Have you ever wanted to be a radio DJ? I know it was something I dreamed of growing up..

Welcome to the world of Podcasting. Online dictionaries have the following definition of podcast :

"a digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or portable media player, typically available as a series, new installments of which can be received by subscribers automatically."

which defines it completely. Its a downloadable audio file but its more than that. Its your show. Your audio show. You radio show.

Podcasts can be used to get your idea across. Maybe you have something to say. Podcasts can be used to advertise; some make livings from selling advertising in their popular podcasts.

Now, this is what a Podcast is; but what is this course. Well this course is a follow along, how to create a podcast and get it up into the digital world.

You will learn what you need to understand and think about before creating. How to create it for free (using free software and hosting) and then how to get your podcast into iTunes.

This course is the 'How To Podcast' course giving you the info you need; and not info you don't. At the end of this course you will have a podcast created and uploaded.

Who is the target audience?
  • Someone who is looking to start a Podcast
  • Anyone looking to create content for advertising using Podcasts
  • Someone who has wandered about how to create a Podcast

Developer, Video Creator, Podcaster and Mentor. Just 4 titles that could describe me and what I do.

I’ve been working in the IT industry for 18 years now and have worked as a Developer, Scrum Master and Team Leader. I’ve also been a student of many as well as mentored many others during that time.

I’ve created video content on YouTube; some popular and some not so. This helped me in gaining the experience to creating good video content for my training courses.

I’ve also spent some time creating podcasts over the years; more recently with a new podcast related to ‘Geekz Talk’(just a plug). – giving me yet more gain and experience on giving content to people and providing more for everyone who is looking for extra content.

I’m here to give to you my experience; my industry lesson learnt and my voice to help you move forward in the subject you want to learn.
