When I started podcasting it really wasn’t deliberate. I made a recording for a friend about my trip to Italy because I didn’t get to talk to her before she left but wanted to give her tips on what I learned. I recorded what I wanted to tell her in person and emailed her the recording. Then I was like, “Maybe this will help other people” so I posted it to iTunes and that’s how things got rolling.
I decided it was fun to make and made another one. And then another one. And then it just became a thing that I’ve been doing for the past few months.
Then I realized that I should probably listen to other podcasters to see if I can improve my technique.
Not only are the techniques of these podcasters very nice, the content is wonderful, too!
These are the ones I’m hooked on right now. More to come…
Chris Christensen’s Amateur Traveler
This guy is anything BUT an amateur… Great podcasts. Well organized. And don’t worry about running out of episodes. He’s got over 300. He creates both audio and video podcasts.
Gary Bembridge’s “Trips for Travelers”
I found Gary’s website when I was researching how to make my blog and podcast better. He is involved in a group called Travel Bloggers Unite and he recently spoke at a convention about creating better content for travelers. I watched the videos of his lecture from this convention and decided to check out his podcasts which are very rich in information.
The Bowery Boys
I was researching podcasts about New York City and found The Bowery Boys, who talk about the history of New York. This isn’t exactly a travel podcast, but it walks a fine line because the history of New York can turn into a walking tour of New York, which are also available from The Bowery Boys. And they are fun to listen to when they banter. 🙂
