She's So Young - My 8-Year Old Daughter's Podcast

She's So Young - My 8-Year Old Daughter's PodcastWhen I opened my own podcast recording studio, my 8-year old daughter Michelle was the most excited of all. She wanted to know exactly how it works and now happily hosts her very own podcast she calls She's So Young.

She's So Young is already two episodes deep and has its own iTunes channel. She's rather proud of this fact, so if you could subscribe and leave a positive comment, she'd love it.

Before we record each episode, Michelle writes down the topics she wants to cover and by episode two was driving the content all by herself. Here's episode two of She's So Young.

Great job, Michelle!

Toronto Podcast Studio

Toronto Podcast StudioLast week, I wrote that there was something happening here. I'm pleased to announce that everything is set up and working and I now own my own professional podcasting studio in West Toronto.

With a Mackie professional mixer and RĂ˜DE Procaster microphones, the sound is top notch. Rosie and I will soon give it a whirl with the return of Toronto Mike'd for a 21st episode.

Many thanks to @stoakleyaudio for helping me set up my new podcast studio

With years of experience managing the back-end of podcasts like the popular Humble and Fred Radio, and great advice from audio expert extraordinaire Andrew Stoakley, I'm excited to be producing podcasts with passion.

This is going to be fun.

This picture was taken yesterday:

It Begins

The First 20: Toronto Mike'd Episodes Waiting to be Heard

Toronto Mike'd Podcast EpisodesRosie and I have recorded 20 episodes of our podcast, Toronto Mike'd. We're taking a little break while we change things up on this side of the coin, but we'd love for you to catch up if you've missed any of our first 20.

That first episode, I wasn't manning the sound board or the mixing board or even sure how I was going to drive the content. By episode 20, we were doing it all ourselves and it was as natural as our private conversations.

We hope you like what you've heard so far and will return for the next exciting chapter of Toronto Mike'd. Here are the first 20:

Learning the Podcasting Ropes

Learning the RopesI shared my thoughts about where I was going, and tonight I made great strides towards my podcasting goals.

With a great tutorial by Bish I not only manned my own sound board for episode 13, but I learned how to manage the entire recording process.

Here's my one minute practice reel:

Now this is fun. Episode 13 will be posted tomorrow morning.

Podcasting: Where I've Been and Where I'm Going

Podcasting: Where I've Been and Where I'm GoingIn December 2006, I had my first taste of producing a podcast. It was the 17th Annual Humble and Fred Christmas Show, recorded at Dan Duran's house and made available online by yours truly. Over the next five years we'd record more Humble and Fred podcasts until the perfect storm presented itself. The guys are now quickly approaching their 250th episode, still served up fresh daily via my lovingly knit XML and HTML enthused infrastructure.

Part One: Making the Audio Accessible

I've learned a lot about the back end (insert joke here) of podcasting over the years, but getting the MP3 heard on multiple devices in a multitude of ways is only 1/3rd of the equation. My plan was to learn the other 2/3rds, content production and hosting and audio production, and I decided to do that by throwing myself into the ring.

Part Two: Creating Interesting Content and Hosting Your Show

I started my podcast in early September and now have a dozen episodes online. Over these 12 episodes, I've learned so much in terms of hosting a podcast, driving content, scheduling guests and keeping it flowing. With lots of help from Rosie, my wonderful co-host, and Mike Wixson, my audio producer, I actually feel confident owning the mic. Toronto Mike'd has been a blast.

Part Three: Audio Mixing and MP3 Production

Starting with episode 13, which I plan to record tomorrow night assuming my voice returns, I'm going to learn the final third slice of the podcast pie. I'm going to manage the audio elements and learn how to produce the MP3. That's what's next and I'm excited.

Podcasting is more than an XML file and being indexed by iTunes. I'm learning that.
