Podcasting For ...
About This Show
"Podcasting For..." is an ebook, a blog, and a podcast introducing people to podcasting and radio production. The first in the series is Podcasting for Communities.
We can all be podcasters, now.
The book, podcast and blog are for people interested in learning how to produce radio and podcasts. Even if you are not exactly sure what podcasting is, but think it sounds like it is a good idea, you can begin your exploration here.
These shows are about podcasting from production through to some technical matters but are all aimed at the beginner.
We can all be podcasters now because the tools to produce a podcast have never been so cheap (and free!). The access to distributing our radio programmes on the internet has never been easier.
“Podcasting for Communities” is for people who want to get together to make radio programmes and turn them into podcasts. Even if you are an individual who wants to learn and produce a solo podcast, or a couple or three friends who want to record a weekly discussion, the information here will be relevant and I hope useful to you.

Mitch Lafon - Rock journalist and podcaster
The Podcasting for Communities’ podcast is part of a project that includes the podcastingfor.com blog and the Podcasting For Communities' e-book which you can find on Amazon. There are links on the blog: www.podcastingfor.com In this episode, Davy Sims talks to rock journalist and podcaster Mitch Lafon. He has been writing and then podcasting about music since he was 11 years old. One on One with Mitch Lafon offers something that many music podcasts don’t. I have mentioned several times in earlier episodes that using music on podcasts can be problematic – rights, costs, permissions all can be difficult. But even though Mitch is talking to musicians – he doesn’t use music. Instead he allows his interviewees time to expand on their ideas. He also runs the full interviews, with a minimal amount of editing and tidying. If you are starting out in podcasting there are several very useful tips here including planning an interview, relationships with your interviewee and your listeners and managing your reputation. There is a lot more too. Find Mitch here: Youtube Facebook Twitter iTunes Spreaker Davy Sims davysims.com You can download or subscribe to the podcast from iTunes The Book – Podcasting for Communities
