Catch The Podcasting Wave

Although they have been around for more than a decade, podcasts have proven to be one of those digital mediums with sticking power. But if you don’t know how to go about creating and distributing your content, you can end up with a great idea that may end up doing more harm than good.

Adaptistration People 049Fortunately, ArtsHacker has been publishing a three-part series on how to go about podcasting the right way. Written by guest author Jason Heath, the first two articles are available; Part 1 covers everything you need to know about hardware while Part 2 goes into an equal amount of detail about software considerations.

With more than 1.2 million downloads of his Contrabass Conversations and experience that covers nearly the entirety of podcasting’s history, Heath brings a wealth of experience to the table. But what really makes the series useful is Heath’s friendly approach that doesn’t rely on overly complex technical jargon.

Moreover, he presents a variety of options on how to get the job done. Whether you are super budget conscious or have resources to consider the higher end options, you’ll get all of the bases covered.

Read Part 1: HARDWARE Read Part 2: SOFTWARE

Part 3 will cover distribution and how to get your content up and running at mainstream podcasting platforms. Until then, don’t miss the downloadable software workflow infographic in Part 2!

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
