DC 76 – Making An MTG Podcast
Show 76 is now online! But hang on, it’s Wednesday, not Friday. Why has the show come out today? Well, when my computer’s power supply blew up a couple of months ago, there weren’t any shows for two weeks, so I thought it’d be nice to do two shows this week and catch up a bit.
This show is about podcasting, and how to put together your own MTG podcast. This is another of those subjects that I’ve wanted to cover for ages, but never got round to doing until now.
To kick off, I talk about things to consider before you say the first word of your first show, things to plan which will make recording your show a bit easier later on.
After that is a discussion of hardware and software. I go over things like microphones, mixers, audio editors and sequencers.
Finally, I mention some tips that will hopefully improve your podcast, should you wish to do one (or if you do one already!).
As always, your feedback, suggestions and general email is very welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, why not head into the DC forums, or leave a comment to this post?
Thanks for listening!
