Enhanced Podcast? It Works! It Works

Hey all you iTunes users. I’ve created an “enhanced” version of my initial test podcasting that I need you all to check for me. My server administrator made some small change and soon you will be able to just download the file into iTunes-but I’ve got a RSS feed working for you now which is even better-all you have to do is subscribe in iTunes and then all my podcasts will just keep on coming into your iTunes or other RSS Aggregator. Procedure: Open iTunes. Open Advanced Menu and select Subscribe to Podcast Enter the following text to the pop-up window: www.muirheadkingdom.com/podcastxml/podcast.xml That’s it! The podcast will download 2 podcasts, as of today. Both have the same audio but one has the enhanced version with links etc....

LDS Voices

There is a great podcast available via the iTunes music store entitled LDS voices. This blog/podcast provides a new audio talk from the best of LDS speakers over the past century. There is a new talk each day to help keep your gospel knowledge, testimony and interest sharp and bright. Best of all once you subscribe (for free, of course) a new talk arrives each day in your iTunes Podcast Library or any other RSS podcast aggregator (try iPodder, iPodder X for example). We listened to two talks this afternoon by John Bytheway, and another from President Gordon B. Hinckley. Brother Bytheway’s talk on The Best 3 Hours of the Week was inspiring, and insightful. President Hinckley’s talk was addressed to the young women of our day and beautiful and simple in...

Podcast Update

We are getting ever so close to moving ahead with our podcasting dreams. I’ve read a book on podcasting and the equivalent to 2 or 3 more on the internet. The website design is being finalized and we even have an online forum up and running, but still needing design tweaking. We have a clear vision document to guide our efforts and even got our first mention by another podcaster-quite unexpectedly! I’ll post more details as we are ready to release them.

I love Widgets

This blog post is being done via an Apple Widget called WordPressdash. Basically a widget is a tiny little program that sits on an invisible layer on your desktop that appears with a keystroke. For instance, I have downloaded a plethora of widgets some more useful than others. I have one right now that is tracking my eagerly anticipated podcast recording equipment shipping via UPS. Another widget tells me the weather and forecast. I’ve also got “daily widgets” these give me things like a word of the day, fact of the day and bible verse of the day. Another sweet widget is Google Maps which has satellite images and maps of pretty much all of North America and more. It’s cool to view a picture of your families house taken from space from the...

Podcast Snippet

Hey Everyone! Daria and I have been extremely busy bees going hard-core after all things podcasting. She’s recording, I’m reading everything I can get my hands on about sound, podcasting, recording and voice training of all things. The t-shirt selling on podcast alley says it all “Can’t sleep must podcast.” We’ve created a rather primitive 1 minute podcast for you my faithful readers (all 8 of you?) to download and test and give your feedback. We are still working on the sound quality, mic positioning and editing—basically we just want to hear if you could download the RSS feed and actually hear something on your computer resembling my voice and some music I wrote in Garageband. Check it out by subcribing to the RSS feed...

Brewing and Podcasts

I’ve got a few entries brewing right now but I’m not ready to post just yet. In the mean time I’ll just mention how much I’m enjoying the new phenom Podcasting. Bjørn, if your reading, podcasting is for you—it’s cutting edge but still left of center. Apple describes podcasting as: Radio-style shows — some from major media, others from passionate individuals — delivered over the Internet to your computer. Unlike streaming audio, which requires you to listen in real time, podcasting lets you control how and when you hear your favorite shows…Choose the time. Choose the place. Choose the show. Save for later or listen now. Podcasting makes it possible. iTunes makes it easy. Take CBC Radio 3′s podcast...
