Boards.ie Christmas Podcast

So after the success of the Know Your Elves, I'm thinking about doing a weekly podcast on the run up to Christmas.

I'm thinking format wise it'd be like something like,

1) Topic of the week
2) Q&A's, E-Mails & Comments
3) Special Guest

I've never done a podcast before, so I don't even know how to go about recording one, what's the best format, etc,etc.

So as always guys I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts, opinions & ideas and as well I'm looking for people to co-host the podcast, the more the merrier.

Do you have access to any sort of voice recorder? Most laptops can record audio but they can have a tendency to pick up background noise, so if you're using your computer it's a good idea to shut windows etc.

Audacity is free software that you can use for editing sound files. I'd say mp3 is the best format to save the podcasts in because that's widely compatible. There are also websites that will host podcasts for free, I could look into it for you if you like?

I was going to offer to help as I have some experience in radio editing, but my laptop decided to start dying over the weekend I can't use my work computer either because I can't download any software onto it. If I get the laptop working again I will let you know!

I have just discovered that there is a podcasts forum on boards (who knew?), and there is actually a thread about where to host which could be useful

You know what could be fun? If we actually took turns and recorded our own little "show" and then sent them in to be podcasted. I could help with editing- I am not a professional but I did a bit of sound editing for a research project I did.

Can't believe I started this thread 4 years ago, life kinda got in the way!

I've been getting the itch more and more to pursuit the idea of setting up a podcast after listening to so many great Christmas ones.

I think Monthly podcasts for now and then possibly bi-weekly as things ramp up and I would be keeping episodes short enough handy for commute listens and less time involvement for the hosts.

I don't intend on doing this solo so is there anyone here interested in helping out? Co-Hosts needed, logo creator and possible editor also.

Also ideas and thoughts for this all greatly appreciated.
