My regular network group that meets on Friday mornings took the week off since it is the holiday weekend. I didn’t know what to do with myself. Well, I kind of did. I had a session yesterday morning and before that, I tried to “get ahead” by working on the Beeswax Vinyl Daily for Monday. I think I told you that it takes upwards of three hours to do one episode?
The reason that is, is because I have to aggregate the content. I have to make sure that what I’m reading is true and correct. I have to voice it. I have to find music to place as beds and I want to make sure that the appropriate music goes with what I’m talking about in the episode. It’s harder than it sounds. Timing while keeping “fair use” models in check, it’s like putting a puzzle together.
So, the “longest” part is the aggregation. The “easy” part is the voice over. The “hardest” part is placing the music. How are you enjoying the episodes so far, being as we’re only two days in? I’m a bit biased but I have listened to each and if I were an outsider, I think I’d find it informative and entertaining. When I talk to my podcast clients, I stress one word (a portmanteau, of course), “infotainment.” I hope you’re infotained.
In case you need a refresher, you can listen to today’s here.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
