We had a great session tonight with Len Edgerly, who led us through the basics of podcasting and videocasting. I live-twittered the class, which you can find here on Twitter.

Len recorded the audio during the session, and has promised to post it at www.lenedgerly.com soon.

If you’d like to check out some of the links Len talked about during the class, checkout the bookmarking page he created for the class here: http://del.icio.us/lenedgerly/yourstory08.

In the meantime, why not check out this Utter I made tonight, inspired by and in response to tonight’s session?

An Audio Podcast Sampler

In preparation for my Arts Foundation of Cape Cod “Tell Your Story” presentation, I have prepared a sampler of audio podcasts that might be of interest to you.

All of these podcasts are available for free at the Apple iTunes Music Store. If you don’t have the iTunes program on your computer, you can download it for free at http://www.apple.com/itunes

Once you have downloaded iTunes and are running it, click on “iTunes Store” in the column at the left of the iTunes window, then enter the name of the podcast in the “Search iTunes Store” field at the upper right. When you see the podcast in the search results window, click on the “Subscribe” button. This will download the latest episode of the podcast to your computer, where you can listen to it, or you can sync the podcast(s) with your iPod or other portable audio player to listen to them while driving, working out, etc. You can also manually download older episodes of a podcast if you want to.

Here are 12 suggested podcast titles, taken from my own personal favorites:

  1. Technology in the Arts (from Carnegie Mellon’s Center for Arts Management & Technology)
  2. In the Box: The Business of Live Entertainment
  3. Book Review (hosted by editor of The New York Times book review)
  4. Audio Pod Chronicles (shameless plug for my own bi-weekly audio podcast)
  5. 10 Golden Rules of Internet Marketing Podcast
  6. Marketing Over Coffee
  7. MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art
  8. Slate’s Political Gabfest
  9. Bloomberg on the Economy
  10. Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing
  11. Poetry Magazine Podcast
  12. The Economist

We will be talking about how arts organizations and artists can take advantage of the fast-growing phenomenon of podcasting, so if you’ve had a chance to listen to a few yourself it will help spark ideas for action.

If you have any questions about finding and listening to podcasts, please feel free to call me on my cell phone at [redacted – ask Beth for number] or email me.
