Well I had hoped to have created my first podcast by now, but I ran into an obstacle. I want to use the KISS method to podcast, “Keep It Simple Sweetie,” and I’m the Sweetie. I plan to interview fashion designers, artists, musicians and performers showcasing and celebrating all form of intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual indigenous culture in the places where we gather. These places include Othaphiaaki Fashion Week in Calgary, Indigenous Fashion Week Toronto, tribal reserves, sacred lands and Pow Wows. Traveling with a lot of gear to create a podcast isn’t an option for me.
My initial goal was to create a podcast with my smart phone and edit it using GarageBand. Obstacle #1: The GarageBand app requires iSO 13.0 or later. I have an iPhone 6S+ with an iOS of 12.4.1. The bottom line, I have to upgrade my phone to use the GarageBand app.
In the meantime, opportunity knocks! Thanks to my teachers Martin Brossman and Andres Quintana they informed me about a new platform called Anchor.fm, which describes itself as “The Easiest Way to Start a Podcast,” and it’s free. They have a YouTube promotional video at this Web Link. David Jackson from the School of Podcasting has a negative review of Anchor.fm, which was just purchased by Spotify. See David’s Review Here. Since, this is my first podcasting experience, I’m a blank page with no history or attachment to any podcasting platform. So, I’ll explore, experiment and we’ll see what happens. I’ll share my experiences as I blog my journey.
