This introduction to podcast and radio production is by award winning ex-BBC producer and editor Davy Sims is for students, setting out in journalism. [If you have read "Podcasting for Communities", there is no need to read this as both contain the same essential information.] It is an introduction to “making content"; to podcasting and broadcasting, whether you want to understand production on a professional level or simply because you want to create podcasts for fun or add something useful to your CV. The main part of this book is about - Forming your production team, then planning and recording your programme. - As you are making your radio programme we explore 5 key skills that producers, presenters, reporters and sound recordists need; writing, reading, interviewing, recording and editing. - We will discuss different podcasting systems and hosts to transform the recording into a podcast. - Then we discuss promoting your podcast and developing and managing your online community. Developing and managing an online community is rarely covered in any depth in articles and books I have read about podcasting. Y - It also cover blogging and some of the simple technical stuff. The book is a direct result of experience teaching journalism students radio production. The book is part of the “Podcasting For …” Project which includes podcasts and the podcastingfor.com blog. You don’t need to be a part of an organisation to produce a podcast; any single person or team can produce stories cheaply and easily and bring those stories to their audience. Journalists, newspapers, magazines, television programmes, any supplier of news, opinion or information can use podcasting to increase their reach, promote their main publication, bring additionality to their subscribers. People who were once “ink only” journalists are producing radio – to various levels of professionalism. They range from the pathetically poor – failing to understand simple production processes like audio quality or engaging audiences – to podcasts that are high quality technically and editorially. Many have turned to audio podcasting as a strategic way to bring distinctiveness to their brand. Producing a podcast episode should be an enjoyable experience, and the listener must be able to enjoy listening. It’s not about you as the producer and presenter, it’s about the listener. Demarcations of the past are becoming meaningless. Magazines produce audio podcasts, newspapers make video, radio stations produce websites and so it goes. A journalism student beginning work in a newspaper or magazine, might well get opportunities to produce stories for the publication’s podcast. Better still, a talented journalist might be offered the opportunity start a brand new podcast. We can all be podcasters now because the tools to produce a podcast have never been so cheap (some, free!). The access to distributing our radio programmes on the internet has never been easier. Even the process to get our podcasts listed on iTunes is simpler than ever before. Although there is a lot more competition. There are more tools available to us and they are easier to understand. “Podcasting for Journalism Students” is for people who want to get together to make radio programmes and turn them into podcasts as part of a course or as an extension. It also can be useful for students learning radio production. The PodcastingFor.com website will have more information and updates, conversations, podcasts with other podcast producers, journalists and broadcasters.
