Podcast Primer (Beginners Guide on How To start a Podcast)
I was recently been invited by De La Salle University College of Saint Benilde, to talk about podcasting.
That said webinar was geared toward students in music production to learn about radio broadcast production.
As a primer, the topic revolved around podcasting as a good practice for people who are interested in going to mainstream broadcast.
Podcasting in its very nature, is a holistic approach in learning the basics of content production in broadcasting.
This is a compressed version.
Topical content should be straight to the point.
Sharing my thoughts on making content using guide scripts. Im pretty sure you know already about storytelling and its components. *Plot , Purpose, Conflict and Resolution (which this vlog is not) This vlog simply tells about better practice in polishing a guidescript itself.
Here's the Youtube link:

Behind The Speakers BTS (OMG! a Solid Logical Free State)
As part of my experiment on using inexpensive gears in podcasting, I've stumbled across a very intriguing VST plugin.
The result..... Move over buster!
I'm so stoked over this analog obsession for a plugin giving that warm tonality.
What do you think......
So if you like the tonality and would like to get the plugin.
Read between the lines.
Behind The Speakers BTS (Talk Like a Global Podcaster)
We have our own tonal preference to a podcaster.
But, Its is a fact that a podcaster's voice should be friendly and relatable enough for
our listener to interact with and subscribe to.
And as a podcaster, Our own voice is unique and has limitation on tonal characte.
In this episode I will be discussing keypoints to consider in improving your voice and eventually improving your podcast game.
Behind The Speakers BTS (Gear Sports Dilemma)
Podcast is all about content and less emphasis on gears.
Although great gears are ideal, It is not a necessity.
I recorded this podcast using cheap but decent gears to emphasize this point.

So being flexible and adapting to situations is something we should be developing to keep moving forward.

Down with Podcast (Analyzing the Most Valuable Player)
There will be times that we see a jump in our podcast.
We see a large number in total plays.
That’s great, It only means your podcast is being heard and consumed by listeners.
But hold on to your horses and you might want to reconsider flexing it to your groups.
While it is true and it gives us a sense of achievement (and it is).
The total number of plays does have minute impact on marketing and even in your content development...
So how do you optimize the use of the basic data that is given to us.
Behind The Speakers BTS (What shall it be... A Mixer or an Audio Interface)
Having that pristine sound starts with the gears you have. And an audio interface is a must gear for the intermediate and professional alike.
And what you’ll choose is dependent on the purpose and how you’ll use it and set it up.
Lets go for that great sounding podcast.
Down with Podcast (Talking Paused and Push that Feeling on)
That moment when you don’t know where to start.
Such stage-fright can be easily be overcome by having a conversational mindset and constant practice.

Behind The Speakers BTS (Brazillian Wax and a $6 XLR2USB Cable)
Okay, so we have an ordinary microphone on hand, and we say to ourselves that it may be a good idea to podcast on the go if we can somehow connect the mic on our laptop by an xlr to usb cable.
But to our surprise , we get this gruesome artifact that irritates even our patience…
Don’t fret and before you throw that cable to the dumpsters, we can somehow salvage that audio to perform decent and on the go..
For this podcast, we will be discussing about how to sound better using an xlr to usb cable.
Behind The Speakers BTS (Of Bootlegs, Secret Sauce and a Butt)
Okay so you’ll start a podcast.
You join groups and podcast communities to ask recommendations on
key important equipment in order to start a podcast.
And you find yourself bombarded with lots of information all boiling down to buying expensive gears.
But let me tell you something.
Although having expensive gears will give you clean audio and boost some confidence.
You can actually make do with a simple frugal setup.
--->I've used a bootleg mic, directly connected to the desktop (no audio interface) just to demonstrate my point.
Hope you guys can lean from this post.
Down with Podcast (Lips Like Sugar and a Perfect Podcast Voice)
So I have been talking to some of my jock colleagues in the radio industry

Of course, we all have our own voice to speak on.
But even if we can speak podcast.
We just have to fine tune it a bit to for our audience to have a pleasant time in listening to our podcast.
Down with Podcast (Ballers and Photoshopped Topics)
A podcaster is an ideal influencer.
Our notion of one’s worth is somehow defined by social media.
I mean, come-on… most of us long for that real time ratings in our daily feed… right.
And as the star of our own social content, most of us have the tendency of photoshopping our daily lives.
Who would not want to present an awesome day, even at the cafeteria… hahahaha

But yeah its doable.

It is such a cumbersome task for a startup.
But with $500M projected adspend on Podcasting this 2021, who could not resist to eat the cake.
