Podcast from Mobile device 1

Podcast or Interview from your iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows Device

The best part about podcasting is how mobile it has become. Even back in 2007, you could get a digital recorder which allowed you to record audio. I recorded audio for a podcast once from my old HTC 8125 Windows phone. It was a fun and eye-opening experience for me because I saw what we were able to do in the future of podcasting. Add to this some great microphones you can add to your smartphone or tablet, your podcast options are a lot better than before. Also add the fact you can instantly upload to server location so your...

iTunes Podcast Stations: Create Podcast Playlists, Stations

With the addition of iTunes 11.1, you also have the opportunity to get your Podcasts in order by creating Podcast lists that sync between your different programs. iPad, iPhone and even iTunes on Mac or Windows will now be able to share your lists so you don’t have to re-create them. A great tool for you to keep your podcasts synced and also set up so your subscriptions don’t stop downloading. I would like to suggest Apple add a “Share” option so people can share their playlists with others. Otherwise, just like with iTunes Radio – your playlists come with...

Audio Technica ATR 2100 USB/XLR Hybrid Microphone

A few weeks ago on the Podcasters Community, I was hearing about this microphone for podcasting. At first glance I blew it off, but with more podcasters talking about it, I thought I would get the microphone and check it out. I am talking about the Audio Technica ATR2100 microphone. About the Audio Technica ATR2100 USB/XLR Hybrid Microphone At first glance, it is a standard cardioid mic. No different than any dynamic stage microphone. However, when you turn the microphone around, you start to see the difference and the multi-use of this mic. Simply put, the bottom houses a XLR...

Podcasting has Evolved. Have You?

To think how far podcast technology has come in the past ten to fifteen years is mind-blowing. Not long ago, everything was low-quality and people were stuck at home with either headset mics or incredibly expensive setups making podcasts only available via a handful of platforms. This is no longer true. Podcasting has taken its place in society as consume-as-you-please radio that offers all sorts of commentary on a wide variety of topics, and is produced by everyone from radio professionals, to academics, to friends who want to talk shop and enjoy themselves – and all of these groups have...

Have you been resisting the YouTube factor? Your podcast is audio – why should it be on YouTube? Well, your podcast doesn’t exactly need to be on YouTube – but YOU should be. We’ll talk about how your traffic can increase if you utilize and promote a Youtube channel with your podcast. YouTube is a Top Search Engine I have to preface this section by saying there seems to be a strategic change happening . Google+ and YouTube may become synonymous in the months or years to come. I believe that with the two, they will take 2 spots in the top...

How to Record Podcasts on Your iPad

When we started this crazy podcast thing, we had bulky microphones, big computers and clunky software. Times have changed. Now, we have iPads and all the means to record a podcast with it. My iPad Podcast – Hotel Walkthrough Whenever I go on a trip, I do a hotel walkthrough. Before it was a lot of work. Now, I can pick up my iPad and walk around a hotel taking video and mixing it down to upload. I purchased iMovie for iOS which allows me to create video, mix together and even put music behind. I can do a hotel walk-through in...

Using a Portable Digital Recorder for Mobile Podcasting

One way to record while in the field is by using a Portable Digital Recorder. This is a digital recorder, unlike the tape players of old. The device is pretty small and can record a one-on-one conversation, or a room for a presentation. The portable digital recorder has advanced to the point it can have XLR mics attached, can be attached to certain video cameras to enhance the audio, or run just from the unit itself. Some have a db filter – which means it will try to compress the outer noise to try and catch the speaker’s voice. There...
