Podcasting is fun!
It’s also hard work. But mostly, it’s fun. Today we published Chapter 3 of “Turning Left at Albuquerque” on turningleft.podebean.com. You can either go directly to the podbean site or you can listen to it via the podcast player on the right here, in the sidebar.
More updates every Monday and Friday
We decided to keep the episodes short. I wrote short chapters because the story lends itself to that – each chapter is another little snippet from Jason’s life. It helps to move the story along and makes it easier to read. And also read out, as it happens. I love to listen to podcasts but I find it very difficult to listen for more than a few minutes at a time. This is for many reasons not least the fact that I can’t listen and work at the same time. So I decided that having short episodes might suit those people like me who like short podcasts. And I know that there are some people listening whose first language is not English. I’m not able to offer translations but shorter podcasts are easier to stop and replay, so I hope that is helpful.
But there’s more…
I do listen to longer podcasts (like the Knights of The Guild) but I have to put time aside for them. I know many people like to listen to podcasts and audiobooks when they are traveling/commuting. For these people lots of short episodes might not be as good, so every 5 episodes we will be doing an omnibus. The first omnibus, with Chapters 1-5, will be released on 22nd May. The omnibus releases will also feature some new extra content from our patrons, British Radioweb Entertainment Worldwide.
Do you Podcast? Do you want to?
I’m new to this, and I’m really interested in how other people are going about setting up their podcasts, creating promos, how they started and why. Let me know if you are a podcaster or are considering it and we can share experiences.
