My Podcasting Workflow
Listen to the audio:
How does someone who started podcasting in 2005 make four shows a week? In the last several years, I’ve gone from producing one audio show sporadically to making four each week. How? Let’s examine my podcasting workflow step by step.[tweet “How does someone who started podcasting in 2005 make four shows a week? Watch this to find out:”]
First, you should know that all my shows are shot as videos. Whether you listen to just the audio or not, it started life as a video.
I have my set ready to go all the time. That way, when I sit down to record, I don’t have a lot of excuses not to do so.
My lighting is all set, so I just need to turn it on.
I shoot primarily on my Canon T3i with the 18-55mm kit lens.
For audio, I tend to use my audio-technica pro-70 wired lav running through my Behringer Eurorack UB 1202 FX into my Behringer multicom pro-xl compressor/limiter/gate. There are links to buy these models on this page.
I shoot a show, copy the files to my hard drive and edit. I always use the same template, so all I have to do is cut off the intro, put it before the open, add the rest after the open, and move the close to the end of the video I just shot.
Next, I export the video and upload it to both YouTube and ChurchStreaming.tv.
I get the thumbnails from photopin.com (creative commons images only) and write up my show notes.
I also export an aif audio file from the video, open it in iTunes, compress it to an mp3, and upload it to Libsyn.com (my audio podcast host).
Finally, I put together all the media and show notes in a blog post here.
