Some tips for podcasting

This week we will be discussing what a podcast is and how to create one using Audacity, copyleft music and Podomatic.

Below are some references to help you use Audacity. I’ve also linked to a podcast on Podomatic. Your podcast should be linked on your own blog after it is finished.

I’ll discuss everything you need to know in class but check out these links and tutorials below. The last one is my podcast, which will also be an in-class assignment.

Here is a video on editing audio in Audacity:

Here is a video on getting and using LAME, which is a plugin used by Audacity to create MP3 files. You need to be able to create MP3 files in order to upload your podcast online.

Here is a link to the Audacity wiki, if you need help:
