To Podcast or Not to Podcast

A number of people have suggested that I start a weekly podcast. I’ve considered doing so I’ve started wrestling with the obvious. What would I talk about? “Oh you have tons of things to talk about” they tell me. While its true that I’m rarely at a loss for words, is it really something that warrants a downloadable option? Would the production thereof fit in to my already compromised schedule? Since people keep throwing yes-es back to all of these questions I’ve left the thought on my plate of considerations. This may be a side effect of working at NYU-Film School – lots of creative minds bursting with positive reinforcements. Although no one is afraid of the constructive criticism either… so I take a moment and think about it.

And the more I think about it, my carefully edited essays on this blog resemble written podcasts more than they are blog entries. Hence the days that are required to “produce” them. If I changed my blog tactic to something more conversational and use my edit time to produce podcasts.. it might just work. But I can’t jump in to this without something carefully crafted.

First I will look at the rest of the MS Podcasts that are out there and see if there is a place for me in the existing network. Or, and unmet need that MSLOL might fill.

I’ll let you know what I come up with, meanwhile let me know what you think of podcasts…

    I too have toyed with the podcast idea. But in reality, I have a hard enough time trying to find the time to write on the blog. Would I have time to do the podcast??? I do listen to a few of them, but I am not a devout follower of them. But I am a techie-junkie so it is intriguing!
    And thank you for your comment on my blog. It is nice to know that others feel the same way. I guess I get tired of the gloom and doom that i hear from some. As I said in mine “Enjoy the journey!”

  2. I’m not huge on podcasts but I like blogs. I think you should do what feels good to you. BTW, I am enjoying your page. I just added you to the bloglist on my blog. I look forward to seeing you around.
