I have produced dozens of podcast episodes on the subjects of parenting and homeschooling. The parenting related podcasts are featured on DaddyLife.net with Internet and Technology Safety advice for parents. The episodes available via RSS, iTunes, and other podcast directories. I have featured an eight part series on The Fathers Mandate from the GKGW material authored by my good friends Gary and Anne Marie Ezzo.
The home school podcast is a little newer. My wife Sherry and I co-host this one. We will be moving the Home School Support Network toward being more of an online homeschool support group providing curriculum and resource reviews, time management tips, as well as experiences with various teaching methods. Also look for our Home School Network Online Academy for live online classes delivered via Adobe Connect collaboration software in a distance learning style of content delivery. Think of it as a homeschool coop that does not require you to leave the house.
Not My First Rodeo
I produced over 60 episodes of a podcast back in 2005-2006. So I know how to podcast. A pod cast is fairly simple to create andÂ I produced my original podcast via an old school method using a microphone connected directly into my PC and recorded it using software on my PC. I then edited the recording and uploaded it to my web site. I published the RSS feed to iTunes and got to a point where I was pushing 5000 downloads per month even thought the audio quality was very amateur.
Improved Quality Podcast
This time I am using some dedicated recording devices and I only use the computer to add intro music and sound effects during the actual recording process. I am recording everything in high quality WAV format on an external Roland digital recorder. Then I import the WAV files into Audacity for post production and editing. I am using a Behringer 802 mixer with a Shure SM90 dynamic microphone to record into the Roland recorder.
