In March, I was invited to address graduate students with Northwestern University’s RSG program (devoted to turning “great researchers into great communicators”) on the subject of podcasting.
We billed it as: “So you want to be a podcaster: How will you get people to listen?”
Mostly for self-critiquing, I recorded the lecture on an iPhone placed in my shirt pocket.
As I listened back afterward, I was pleased enough with the audio quality to clean it up a bit — re-editing in some of the demonstration audio and increasing the volume of audience questions to make them more intelligible. (You’ll hear a little shirt-rustling, but not much more than you’d get with a standard lavalier mic.)
So, for your listening enjoyment, here it is.
