Podcasts…A Beginner’s Guide
So I was driving into work this morning, listening to podcasts and came up with another topic I needed to write about…as you can see from the title of this entry, I want to share some info about podcasts. I know not everyone listens to podcasts, so I’m here to help explain what they are, where to find them, how to subscribe to them, how to listen to them & which ones I deem a good listen. So let’s get started, shall we?
I. What is a podcast?
A podcast is like talk radio, except for it’s not actually on the “air waves” anywhere. The person(s) recording will sit down to record on their own and upload the recordings to the internet for distribution to various places to be downloaded by listeners like iTunes, Google Podcasts & other like distribution sites. If they’ve built up a decent listener base, they can take their podcast to various advertisers to line up deals with them in order to make money off of their show. A lot of podcasters tend to record more for the love of getting their voice out there to be heard more so than actually making income from the shows recorded.Continue reading “Podcasts…A Beginner’s Guide”

The Passing of Leonard Nimoy #LLAP
The Star Trek world lost one of it’s founding fathers this past Friday when Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock) passed away at the age of 83. I know when I read the news that I immediately felt a sense of emptiness as my heart just sank. I never knew the guy personally or even met him at a Star Trek Convention, but I was a devoted fan of the man for just about as long as I can remember.
This will be the first time I’ve “Trekked Out” on here as all of my other posts have been about wrestling, sports or of a personal category, so please just bear with me here as I venture into my geekdom and give my thoughts on this man’s contribution to my love of his work
I have been, and forever shall be….your friend. – Mr. Spock
Growing up, I can remember watching reruns of Star Trek on Saturday afternoons with my dad. He introduced me to this world of interplanetary exploration and the positive outlook that Gene Roddenberry had for the Continue reading “The Passing of Leonard Nimoy #LLAP”
