Podcasters aren’t one-dimensional social media types. We also read and write blogs, participate in social networks, follow hundreds of RSS feeds, contribute to wikis, and send Twitter messages. In short, we have an insatiable need to keep up with and to share the latest and greatest online content.

But how do we manage this never-ending flood of information while also staying both productive and sane? This presentation will offer you a road map.

Mark stepped in for an ill Jeff Parks (who was to present on a model for mentoring within the podcast community) with a presentation on how to engage your audience by using ambience and atmosphere within your audio recordings and final productions. Using three specific examples, Mark challenged the Podcasters Across Borders community to take risks and think beyond quiet studios, converted clothes cupboards and stale boardrooms to take their listeners with them — wherever they may go — when they record their programs.

Our apologies… this podcast is peppered with clicking and popping from Mark’s Intel Macbook, a problem from a Mac patch that has since been identified and corrected.

After less than two years, LibriVox is one of the world’s most prolific publishers of audiobooks, on a budget of $0. LibriVox belongs to a global movement that Yaochai Benkler calls “commons-based peer production,” projects like free and open source software production (linux, firefox), wikipedia, and [email protected]

The human evolutionary advantage is our ability to process and systematize information. Now, people have more access to information, and a means to exchange and comment and act on it. This gives humans a greater ability to find innovative solutions to problems. Podcasting is the soundtrack (and videotrack) to this revolution.

As Podcasters, you create and incorporate creative works – audio recordings, both your own and those created by others. You are dealing with the bread and butter of the incumbent media industries, groups that push for more restrictive copyright laws to protect their property.

Learn about Creative Commons licenses, copyright licences that you can easily use to make your podcasts available with only some rights reserved. This session will include the official release of the Canadian Podcasting Legal Guide, the first guide of its kind which speaks to Canadian law.
