I edited the code of an existing XML feed to create my own but there were bits I didn't completely understand, so I bought FeedForAll which made life easier. [url]http://www.feedforall.com/[/url]

I had a directional ball microphone and a Mix Preamp that I bought on eBay. My brother gave me a mike stand with boom.

To record I use Total Recorder Professional from High Criteria

I also use this to record internet broadcasts from the BBC etc.

For editing I use Audacity, an older version of Sonic Forge and Adobe Audition.

Having given 10 speeches for Toastmasters I was pretty much at home with public speaking and this experience also helped when I became a popular blues history guest on a local blues FM radio show.

I've lived a longish life and know a bit about entertaining so the rest is Podcasting history, so to speak.

I chose to mount the Podcasts on my own webspace at [url]http://www.soniabrock.com/[/url] where I also maintain the site index.

Sonia, you rock! Go girl go.

You should set up your own podcast class. How to record your life so your family will have you forever.

Really great to see what you are doing.

Thank you, Martha.

I think I was remembering the few family cassetees we have and how much better it would be to have the voice as well as the words.

The only rules for a Podcast class would be
1. Keep it short
2. Have a beginning, a middle and an end.
3. Be yourself

The rest is technology :)

So how do I get my mom to podcast - she's not the technologist you are.

It would be such a service if there were a way to get seniors to podcast.

Try also Feed Editor for making podcasts... Very easy to use and stable.
