Listen up!

PodCamp Toronto Feb. 24-25 is FREE!

Did you know you don’t need an iPod to listen to podcasts?
Podcasts are just a fancy way of packaging audio recordings. You can listen to them on iPods, computers, mp3 and CD players; and, subscribe for updates.

What’s really cool is podcasts are free! You can find a podcast about almost any subject imaginable.
My first “must-listen” was The Official LOST Podcast with the series’ producers, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. I loved getting an insiders’ view behind the scenes.

Today, the number of podcasts has exploded and my list of “must-listens” has expanded considerably. Thousands are recorded and produced by people like you and me, without fancy studios. You can start with a computer, free software (also available on the Internet or your computer operating system) and a microphone.

If you want to research RSPs before the March 1 deadline, Scotiabank‘s The Money Clip offers an excellent 16-episode series: “Two minutes to a better RSP“. Best of all, you don’t even have to be a Scotiabank customer to subscribe.

I don’t know if I’ll produce my own podcasts but as a communicator passionate about communications technology, I want to know how and when to use them effectively.

You can learn more too! Attend an event called PodCamp Toronto – a free unconference this weekend. I’ll there, what about you?
What are your “must-listens”? Leave a comment.
