If there it’s anything I’ve learned it’s that audio is super key when it comes great content. Because if audio is bad, it’s much less enjoyable. Which is why I’ve spent time learning how to clean up audio and in the process of doing so I feel in love with the medium and it’s uniqueness when it comes to creating narrative content.
This fantastic form of content is something that has once again made its way into the main stream once again. Even though it had a great heyday in 2005 podcasting has really picked up traction due to the NPR style of audio story telling like [Radiolab}(http://www.radiolab.org/), Planet Money, and Freakanomics. Which has spurred the way for new shows like all the shows at Gimlet Media, Radiotopia and so much more.
Needless to say, I started a few podcasts. None of them have stuck mostly because the co-hosts moved away and it just became difficult to keep it up.
You mean working full-time, going to school full time, and starting a family makes it hard to do things you enjoy? Hmm, who would have thought.
In any case here is one series I did with a few friends where we got together to discuss comics.

I had the pleasure of being the production director at KWCR. Which allowed me to train people on how to go from terrestrial Radio to Digital. Teaching them the workflow, and how to use the new studio that we built for the switch to digital. In that I did sweepers and completed podcasts for the station. Here is an example of what I would do for the station.
