Learning to Podcast

A year ago today, I had no idea what a podcast was. Now, I’m planning my second month of podcasts. So within a year’s time, I’ve gone from clueless to expert. Crazy, right?! I think so, especially when most are still in the dark like I was with podcasts. Learning to podcast isn’t as hard as I thought, but it’s not easy either.

I got my first introduction I purchased my iPad. As I clicked on the various apps, I found the podcast one and it was lights out. When I worked graveyard security, my time of solitude and walking around listening to various podcasts made the nights go really fast. One of my favorites was Entrepreneur on Fire (aka, EO Fire) with John Lee Dumas. I averaged about four hours of listening hours a day.

With EO Fire, John had several webinars to help anyone begin podcasting. Even though I didn’t go through his podcasting school, he provided a lot of great information to get anyone started. From equipment to publishing, JLD hooks you up with everything you need to be successful. Here’s his page if you want more information.

As for me, learning to podcast is a different skill set than I expected. You have to be organized with your thoughts, agenda, and technology. It’s almost similar to playing a video game. Ensure your equipment is sound, and you’re comfortable with the functionality of it. In my first few podcasts, my mic input levels were unbalanced. Therefore, the left speaker carried the bulk of the sound- but it was a quick fix once identified. Overall, with a lot of swirling ideas, timelines, current events and keeping my character, it’s been fun.

The Social Entrepreneur with Nathan A Webster is still in pilot mode. I’m not sure how I’ll do it. However, I do have expectations. So right now, it’s all about honing my craft while having fun.

I write this because my business is personal because this service is for the advancement of all humanity. My failures and successes are for your gain. No strings attached.
