I have recorded a podcast. As a part of my coursework for my reference resources class, we were asked to review a reference resource and then record a quick lesson about it, highlighting some of its best features. We were given the choice to record a video or record a podcast, and in a move that probably surprises no one, I chose to podcast. It’s my first one ever, so be gentle.
I used Garageband to record and cut my track, which was a good learning experience. I used the microphone on my Macbook, which actually sounded exponentially better than my headset.
Overall I found the process of podcasting solo very tedious. If I podcast again in the future, I think I would prefer a more conversational style, which means recruiting some poor soul. Ultimately what I have learned is that I much prefer listening to podcasts than recording them.
