Podcasts

For those interested in making their own podcasts I would suggest the following resources:

podslash - as well as being a place to find podcasts this comm has a great set of reference material and great pointers.

temaris's How To for the podcast beginner.

Never before have I desired to own an iPod, but now I find myself wishing I owned one of the little beasties. *wanders off trying to calculate how many sexual favours it'll take to get hubby to buy me one* ;)

Podcast: The Corruption Sequence Part 1 - Corruption

I have been dragged kicking and screaming into the world of podcasting. For those who do not know what this is, it is the recording of fic/interviews and the like and then putting them up with an RSS feed (much easier than it sounds) so that people can subscribe to the podcast and download updates when they are available. I have started to record The Corruption Sequence (since I was worried by how long GTS would be in audio format ::g::). You can blame this sudden obsession on temaris; it's all her fault, she brought along her podslash on Saturday and I'm hooked now. The format below is borrowed from podslash

If you don't know what podcasting is and want to know how to subscribe (you don't need an ipod, you can do it on your PC) then go to this very helpful post Subscribing to podcasts for dummies by aithine.
