The Complete Guide to Maverick Podcasting
by Micah Hanks
In this instructional installment from author Micah Hanks, the world of podcasting and audio journalism are explored… along with a few of the more the “unconventional” elements of what makes this medium more accessible and rewarding than ever before.
Podcasting has become a medium utilized both by major broadcasters, as well as those who seek to reach smaller audiences from the comfort of their homes. But it is also something that evades many who could be doing it, because of a few simple misconceptions: chief among them, the idea that it’s just too difficult to learn how to do, or simply too expensive to put time and money behind.
Dispelling these and many other misconceptions, Hanks unravels the mystery behind “the art of the podcast,” and offers a unique perspective on how the medium can be used as a promotional or monetary endeavor, even while traveling. Additionally, he explores the various methods and equipment involved, and how podcasting can be used to engage like-minded thinkers, broaden one’s own horizons, help launch a new business, or even promote an existing one.
But be warned: This book is not for the average would-be audio enthusiast. However, if you’re a free-thinker, and a nonconformist spirit willing to throw yourself to the lions in the quest for reaching new personal horizons, this is the book that will help you learn to use the art of podcasting to your greatest advantage.
