I attended a fantastic workshop on podcasting this weekend.

I've now made several decisions:
I have determined that I will have an episode every two weeks. Occasionally there will be a additional episode whose primary purpose is humor.
Each episode will be somewhere from 20 to 40 minutes long.
I am still considering podcast hosting services, but I will have my own website (at www.whencupidlaughs.com) as the front end of it.
I am going to be using Audacity as my recording program - open source and free.
I am going to be using a Giant Squid microphone, which I still need to buy.

Things To Do Next:
Put placeholder page in www.whencupidlaughs.com
Buy and test microphone, make sample recordings
Scout podcast hosting services
Start account with iTunes
Post links at places like eclassics and other communities
Get in touch with other classics podcasters

01:28 pm - Current Status Update and Things To Do Next
I have a microphone I think will work for recording the podcasts. I have access to the editing software I need. I have come up with a preliminary list of lecture topics, and have written an initial draft for the first lecture.

I have also come up with a set of labels for the expertise levels of each lecture. Please let me know what you think. I think the actual level divisions work for what I'm going to need, but I want to make sure that none of these sound condescending.

Expertise label informationCollapse )

Things To Do Next:
Design and set up main podcast website
Test microphone, make sample recordings
Start account with iTunes to allow free access to files
Post links at places like eclassics and other communities

ETA: Domain name www.whencupidlaughs.com acquired. Nothing there yet.
