Hey podcasters... I'm interested in learning more about international podcast scenes. I'm fairly familiar with the US and the German scene but I try to expand my knowledge about other local scenes. Thus, I hope for the potential of the 1024 podcasters in this group ;-) : Anyone of you producing for or consuming podcasts of a country other than US/Canada/Australia and willing to share experiences or pointers?

Podcasts sind anders, manche wenigstens. Und ein Podcast ist so speziell, dass ich ihm heute eine eigene Episode gewidmet habe. Komm mit auf Puerto Patida, ha ha ha ha! Musik, Bild, Podcast und Hörempfehlung: http://www.puertopatida.de/

Introduce yourself, your Podcast  - 
 
Not sure why, but my last introduction got removed by a moderator, so I'll try again in different words and without linking to my project...

Hi, I'm Dirk and I'm a German living in Frankfurt with my family. I'm addicted to all things podcast and listen to a lot of English and German podcasts on a regular basis. Also I run a few shows myself, my current project being a (German) daily show about stories behind numbers. I toy with the idea to create an English spin-off of that one, but I'm not there yet.

I'm wondering... Are there any bilingual podcast projects you know of? I'm toying with the idea to produce an English version of my (German) podcast http://anerzaehlt.net and look for others who've done it before

Audio Podcasting  - 
 
I'm playing with synthesizer sounds lately to bring additional athmosphere and drama effects into my podcasts. This is a lot of fun and (somewhat) works, but since I'm not a musician I'm in need for some skill up to really design my audio properly :-) 
Anyone in this group experienced with sound design who can point me to some resources explaining best practices? I'm looking for the type of sound you might find in audio books, audio reportage or simple audio plays...

+Dirk Primbs tips? Not really. I think a digital recorder that has a decent mic is great for recording your own sound effects. You'll find at times when you're trying to find a good, free, legal sound effect, it can be much easier and better to try to record your own sound. There's some cool websites where people trade homemade recordings

Hi +Jeffrey Powers I'm not sure if you were the one removing my introduction from the "Introduce yourself, your podcast" section of the G+ podcasts community but I hope you can help me understand what I did wrong? After all I introduced myself and my podcast with the best intentions to become part of your community... Thx!

Ein tägliches Format hat andere Herausforderungen als ein monatlicher oder wöchentlicher Podcast. Weil immer wieder Fragen eintrudeln wie ich mich organisiert habe und welche Technik ich einsetze habe ich dazu einen Blogpost verfasst...

Eigentlich sind Podcasts schnell und einfach zu machen. Alles was es braucht ist ein Mikrofon (wie z.B. in Handies verbaut), ein Blog und ein bisschen Know How und schon ist man “auf Sendung”. Eigentlich. Aber jeder der sich mit dem Medium etwas länger beschäftigt weiß, dass es dann doch nicht ganz so einfach ist. Da… Continue reading →
