A podcast is an on-demand digital radio show. Podcasts let you focus on a niche topic.
Choose a topic to talk about.
Draft a script of what you're going to say.
Check out a microphone from the Library.
Record audio in a quiet place.
Mix the audio with anything else you want - music for intro? sound effects?. Audacity, an easy-to-use program, is on the computers in the Library lower-level west computer lab (the small one), but feel free to use whatever program you like.
Export your file. Usually, you'll want something like WAV or MP3. Different platforms accept different formats, so check where you want to share it before choosing a final format. Your instructor may also specify a file type.
Upload the finished file to a hosting platform (we suggest SoundCloud) or directly to wherever your instructor has asked.
