  • Podiant: A Great Platform for Podcasting and Migrated Podcasts

    Over the past 10+ years our family members have recorded a lot of podcast episodes in different places using different apps and websites. My all-time favorite remains AudioBoom (previously AudioBoo) where we still have 227 episodes available online. Some of my favorites there include: “USS Arizona Impressions” (very touching spiritual insights from a 6 year old)…

  • Audio Podcasting Workflows (August 2016)

    Audio podcasts are one of my favorite types of media products to create and share. While images and video clips used in narrated slideshow and quick edit video projects can significantly enhance engagement and learning for people watching and listening, those elements can also add significant time requirements as well as layers of complexity to…

  • Podcasting Costs with Amazon S3

    Back in May of 2013, I migrated to a new web host which would not host the hundreds of audio podcasts I’d published since 2005. I needed to find a separate hosting company for my podcasts, and I opted to go with Amazon S3. My friend, James Deaton (@jed), had educated me about the benefits…

    I’m thrilled to announce the start of a new weekly webshow and podcast, “The EdTech Situation Room.” Our byline is “where technology news meets educational analysis.” Follow us on Twitter @edtechSR and follow us on Blab.im to stay updated.

  • Workflow Publishing 30 Normalized Conference Audio Recordings

    I spent most of the day today editing, normalizing, uploading and publishing 30 conference audio recordings from the October 23-24, 2015, Write Well, Sell Well Conference for Writers in Oklahoma City. This is something that’s been hanging over my head for the two months since the conference ended, so I’m very glad to have this…

  • Comparing Podcast Audio Normalization Options

    When you record audio during a conference presentation or other event, the volume levels of your recording can vary when presenters move or are located at different distances from the recording device when they speak. If a final audio podcast is not normalized after this happens, it can be frustrating to listen when audio levels get quiet…

  • Podcasting Options with WordPress

    Next Monday night, on July 27th at 7 pm, I’m going to share a short presentation at the monthly OKC area WordPress User’s Group meeting. This is a free meetup at Oklahoma Christian University the last Monday of each month. The title of my presentation will be, “Podcasting Options with WordPress.” In addition to discussing…

  • Interview with Chris Davis on “Journeys in Podcasting” Project

    This afternoon during the “Hack Education” event at the 2015 ISTE Conference in Philadelphia, I was interviewed by Chris Davis (@chrisdaviscng) about using media to document classroom learning. Chris is conducting a series of audio interviews at ISTE this year for the “Journeys in Podcasting” project he’s continuing with Natalia Leon (third grade teacher) and Diego Lopez…

  • Conference Podcast Recipe and Workflow

    Yesterday I assisted Sharon Abrams, a member of our church in Edmond, Oklahoma, with a one day “Autoimmune and Arthritis Seminar.” I made the coffee, provided AV support for the presenters, and made the four sessions of the day digitally available on a new website I named, “Health and Medical Podcasts.” This process involved capturing presenter sessions…

  • Copy Podcast RSS Link From iTunes

    I love listening to audio podcasts on my daily commute to school and on car trips. I frequently subject my family members to different podcasts (like Science Friday or NPR’s Technology Podcast) when we’re shuttling kids to lessons or other meetings after school. I’m currently subscribed to 65 podcasts on my iPhone with Pocket Casts. Podcasts can…
