Podcasts and video blogs.

A fellow author writes me a message as follows, "I'm thinking of building my own radio shows that contains podcasts. Any idea how I can do this? Does it cost a lot to do this?

Any advice on this is appreciated as I will be volunteering in the libraries youth programs soon, so I might get a lot of participants. Anyway, it's a big step of me. I want to do this, and yet I don't know how to do this yet.

Any suggestions?"

First step.  Go to Google search and search on the words, "start podcasting."  The first one to come up today is "How to start Podcasting and Video Blogging-Robin Good's Latest News." 

Follow this link. Right away there are links to podcasting and video blogging.  Also links to starting your own Internet TV or Radioshow. On this same page are links to Lisa Williams for audio podcasting and Ryanne Hodson for video blogging.  Think of these two sources as education for building a  private radio station or a private TV show.  Both of these sources are proven, well presented, and aimed at encouraging beginners.

The cost for all this is either free or approaching free. Most everyone reading this story already has the equipment and programs to begin participating in either of these activities.

You do not need to have an iPod or other type of equipment as the output of this activity can be experienced using just your computer.  iPod and other equipment are for listening or watching this output while walking around or riding on the bus, or whatever.

The total of all this activity is heavily engaged in by people under 35 years old.  Sure, some of the older crowd has a clue and may be doing it, but the game really belongs to the younger age group.

So why am I writing this story, "In search of chaos?" A kind answer would be that I'm very curious and I don't play well with others.  It's my nature to wonder what's happening and also my nature to be alone. Therefore this revolutionary development fits with me very well.

The little people, the ordinary people now have voices that can reach around the world in seconds.  The big people have their corporate media under their thumbs.  Who do you think is going to come out on top? I'm betting on the under 35 crowd. 

It's a great time to be alive, to be a poet, yes, even to be 72 years old.  I'm more excited than ever because chaos is getting closer all the time.

Author's Den has a beta program on podcasting poetry well under way.  It's their Poem of the Day and if you have not checked it out there's still time.  Book readings, Open Mic are also under beta at present. Podcasts of articles, short stories and also news are being planned for podcasting.

Check out these current beta offerings and start making plans for submitting your material. Jump in, the water's fine.
