OK I finally did it – I created a podcast! You can access it here:
Mostly I just go over the instructions to start your own very simple podcast. It was very easy and took less than 10 minutes. I signed up for Odeo, made a phone call, and hit record (well # really). It was free.
The specific instructions are outlined on the Odeo “podcast by phone” page at: http://help.odeo.com/index.php?_a=knowledgebase&_j=rate&_i=14&type=yes
My next step is to get the little bit of equipment required to record a podcast with more than one person. I see that as a greater application of the tool (for me) than creating solo podcasts, as really I am better in writing than audio. But it was fun to see how easy it was to create a podcast.
I forgot to mention last week that over my vacation I added a number of archive Byte posts to my web site: https://treacyinfo.com/byte.htm. I’m going to try to be better about updating my web site when I post a new Byte!
