Podcasts 101

October 19, 2009

What is a podcast? Put simply, it’s a recording — either audio or video — that you can play when it’s convenient for you. Podcasts exist on a wide variety of topics, from social media, to sports, to comedy, to news . . . and everything inbetween.

I listen to podcasts during my commute from Savannah to Statesboro, and also when I am walking. Some people prefer to listen to podcasts on their computers; my preference is listening to them on my Palm Pre or iPod. Some of my favorite podcasts are: For Immediate ReleaseInside PR, The Creative CareerMedia Bullseye Radio Roundtable, Trafcom News, Marketing Over Coffee, and Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.

Here’s a short video on how to subscribe to and download podcasts using iTunes.

If you’re not an iTunes person, you may want to visit Podcast Alley, where you can find thousands more podcasts. You can listen to the podcasts directly from the website.

As a reminder, your 7th required blog post for this class is about podcasts. Please respond (with a comment) to this post when you decide which podcast(s) you’ll listen to for the assignment.

    Thanks for including Trafcom News among your favorite podcasts, Barbara. I follow the ones you’ve mentioned, except for The Creative Career, which is new to me. I will check it out.

    I think that I will be basing my posting on the College Humor Podcast.
