Podcasting in Plain English

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Remember the good old days of TV and radio: Broadcasts dissappeared into the ether. Well, things have changed. This is podcasting in plain English. Here`s the big idea: thanks to podcasting showtimes don`t matter When a new show is created podcasting gives you a way to capture it and take it with you to watch or to listen to later usually for free It makes shows personal and available on demand. That`s what makes it different from broadcasting It works by setting up a connection between a web-site and a computer so that new shows authomatically show up when available Here are three reasons why podcasting is becoming so popular The first is that anyone can do it no satellites, radio towers or studios needed Most people only need a microphone or a video camera a computer and a connection to the web With these things in place they can make their own show That is opened to everyone It also means that there is a wide variety of podcasts. Whether it`s an investment advise from Wall Street or your neighbor`s gardening show from down the street There is likely a podcast for you The second is subscriptions. This means that if you visit a website that has a great podcast you can click a button and subscribe to receive future shows authomatically All you need is a free tool called a pod cather like iTunes that acts as a way to capture the shows The shows become yours to listen to or watch as much as you want where you want The third reason is gadgetry. You can download a podcast onto a computer and you can also download it into an mp3-player or other portable device and take it with you. And remember: podcast work on all sorts of devices not just iPods So, let`s look how Jason uses podcasts He uses the web everyday, rides the bus to work and loves Japanese culture Recently he found a podcast by a Western couple living in Tokyo After a quick listen he subscribed to their podcast from their website That night as he slept a new show downloaded onto his mp3-player The next morning he was on the bus imagining what it would be like to eat the freshest sushi in the world Podcasting made it happen. It made it possible for the couple in Japan to create a show for only a few yen It made it possible for Jason to subscribe to their show and take it with him Podcasting means we don`t have to depend on traditional media Now everyone can have a voice that shows their true colors.
