Introduction to Podcasting
When creating a successful Podcast, the most important part is Planning. In this beginner's class, I will provide you with a step-by-step guide to creating a Podcast and how to distribute this content on the Internet. A podcast is a great way to build your audience and deliver value to them with content only you can deliver. Podcasting is the distribution of audio and video via RSS 2.0 and /or Atom Feeds. Podcatchers or Podcast Clients, such as Apple’s iTunes, Stitcher and many more, allow listeners to subscribe to your RSS / Atom feed and automatically download your content to their computers or portable media devices once it is online. R.J. Johnson's experience of more than 30 years in radio, TV and audio production will save you lots of time in trying to figure things out on your own. All levels welcome.
RJ - The DJ: I grew up digging in my parents huge record collection, always making cassettes. In 1984, I bought my first set of turntables at a pawn shop and started buying records and playing at home. I did house parties, then went on the air on Austin Community Radio in 1985 while still in high school. I am currently the production manager and host of a Tuesday night program there. I am thankful to have learned so much about music, production and how to produce great radio. RJ - The Musician: As a teenager, I used to jam out with drumsticks on the couch that set was up like a drumset. After high school, I bought my first drum machines and starting doing beats for artists I was working with. Later, I began to learn to play drums by putting on records and listening to every note and playing along and learning. I enrolled at Austin Community College and began taking drum lessons. I still play around town with different groups and I am one of the lead singers with my band Vida Deluxe. I also play bass guitar and keyboards. RJ - The Photographer: I have a big passion for photography. My photography company is PicsInTheMix and I am probably one of the only photographers who DJs while shooting in the studio. It's great to play the music that my clients enjoy and capture some amazing images. If you need help producing your slideshow, please ask and I am delighted to help you create it with a custom soundtrack that fits you.
