1st Podcast!

Making my first podcast was just as much as a struggle as setting up the site was! Though I’ve used Audacity for a broadcast news class, I still had trouble with the program (I had trouble last time too!) One thing that did come very easily was deciding on music to use because the Paint the Town Scarlet segment already has its own music which was conveniently from a free music site, so I decided to go with that. Something that was pretty tough about this was just getting a good recording. I must have messed up the script I had written about 15 times before I got a usable recording. Next I had some trouble with getting the music to balance out with the other track instead of completely overpowering it. After all of the obstacles I am happy with my first podcast. Im sure my next one will be much better and take less time now that I have more of a grasp on how Audacity works. Though I’ve never really listened to podcasts I do think there is a potential for me to start. I definitely like the idea of being able to just listen to something instead of having to watch, because it opens up the window of opportunity for you to get that content (you may not have time to sit down and watch t.v. but you have time to listen to a podcast while you do other things). I may continue to make podcasts for this site or maybe even for other projects I may have in the future. Overall the experience definitely taught me a lot about recording audio.
