Episode Info: Streamlining the podcasting process Listen to the audio: On today’s Tech Help for Churches, Streamlining the podcasting process Do you have enough time to get better at podcasting? Why not start by getting the process right so that you have more time to create better content and work on your delivery? Start with planning: Plan content. Don’t just turn on the microphone and start talking. Have a plan. Make notes. Make sure you write down. Unless you have a photographic memory, this will help.

Instead of uploading a new version for each format, see if there are any tools you can use to combine steps. Does you live streaming host also save to mp3? Can you use an API to take one version of the show and share it across multiple places? Don’t compromise quality. If it starts as a 1080p video, but gets downsampled to 360p because you didn’t upload separately, that might not be a good compromise, but if your audience can’t tell the difference and it saves you time, why not do it?
