I haven’t been an avid podcast listener. Blame that on the lack of hardware: I don’t own any personal music players (iPods or their competition) since listening to music on earphones in painful. (I have tinnitus – ringing in the ears. I’ve had it checked and there’s no obvious cause. On the bright side, my hearing is perfect.) Listening to the podcast while working on the PC isn’t practical either since I can’t concentrate.
Lately I’ve had some listening success with the Nokia 6233 with its useful music player software (on Series 40 3rd Edition) and a headset. I also found out that it can record up to one hour to the memory card, in AMR format. Could I now record my own podcast?
I gave it some thought. What is there to talk about? While some podcaster/bloggers have no trouble recording their ‘casts, these are the people who have no problem blogging either. I on the other hand push out new posts with some difficulty. I also have no skills in sound editing and mixing music for post-production.
I think I’ll wait until I have other people to converse with – like the Band of Bloggers. Unless something significant really comes up that I need to record and broadcast in the spoken word.
