Podcast virgin that is.
Just like I have never tweeted or tumbled, ( I love blogging, but am afraid adding more social media chores would really stretch my limited posting time), I had never listened to a podcast.
Didn't know how.
Did I need an IPOD?
Did I want to invest in another gadget?
I don't very often just sit down and listen to the radio. It is usually something that takes place while I am driving. So to actually catch a rather long program is usually not in my daily routine. If I do listen to a longer program, like Prairie Home Companion, I try to time it with a long drive out to the cabin or somethin'.
After this weekend, that may have to change.
I decided to explore the world of the podcast, more specifically how it relates to that great site 'I hear of Sherlock Everywhere.
I found I could listen to programs on my IPAD ( I love my IPAD), and I started there.
But I wanted to be able to listen where I don't get wi-fi.
ITUNES apps was more than happy to help out there with their pod cast app. ( I know, most of you are already old hats at this podcast stuff.)
I downloaded the app and found I could download and keep, so there fore, could take with me, any episode I wanted.
I first recorded episode sixty and also added the interview with Brad. (Haven't got to the latter yet.)
I shouldn't have been surprised at how professional the programs were. I felt I was listening to an NPR program or at the very least, a good sports chat program. Entertaining and a good pace. Informative and easy to listen to. The two hosts played well off of each other.
I did not hear a single valley-girl 'um' throughout all I listened to. I takes a lot of practice and skill to do that in a long program.
I will never forget my first time and look forward to doing it again. Thanks gentlemen, keep up the good work.
