The Most Comprehensive Podcast Tutorial Ever – How To Start A Podcast In Under 2 Hours When I first decided to start my own podcast, the benefits were already clear in my head. I already knew that having a podcast would expose me to an entirely new audienceI already knew what I wanted to say and how I was going to run itI already knew that that I wanted to get started as quickly as possible But here was the problem. I had no idea about the mechanics of how to start a podcast.I had no idea how to postprocess audio in order to make it sound great.I had no idea what equipment to buy. In addition, I did not want to pay someone $1000+ to teach me a bunch of extraneous info that I probably did not need. For example, I already had a platform and a voice at That is why I created this tutorial. Why Is It Free? To be honest, my original plan when I first created this course was to charge $99 for it.

Audio Content Made Easy: Fantastic Apps for Podcasting - Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow} By Kerry Gorgone, {grow} Contributing Columnist By now, you probably know you should be podcasting. If you haven’t reached that conclusion yet, check out my post “It’s time for you to start a podcast,” then come back. The “nuts and bolts” of podcasting are much, much simpler than they were when podcasts first came on the scene. These days, you don’t even need a computer (strictly speaking). Before You Begin: There are plenty of apps available for aspiring podcasters, but before I delve into those, let me preface the app discussion by saying you must have two pieces of equipment: a quality microphone and noise-cancelling headphones. Without quality audio, your podcast will fail. Here’s what I mean by awful: there’s so much background noise you can’t hear the subject speaking, there are audio drops or distortions, there’s wind blowing across your mic. To ensure success, plan ahead. I use SonyPro noise cancelling headphones and a Rode Podcaster mic. Now, on to the best apps for podcasters:

Inspired By Serial, Teens Create Podcasts As A Final Exam In the months leading up to the final exam, 10th grade teacher Alexa Schlechter struggled. She’s an English teacher — an educator of stories told through the written word. But instead of focusing solely on classic books read in the 10th grade, she and her students at Norwalk High School in Connecticut were immersed in a teenage story about murder, set in the 1990s, detailed in blog posts, communicated in audio: Serial, the hit podcast from the producers of This American Life. After spending months listening to Serial and talking about it as a class, a two-hour sit-down final seemed pointless, irrelevant and an inaccurate gauge of all the learning that had taken place throughout the year. While driving to school one day, thinking about Serial host Sarah Koenig’s frustrating evolution over the course of the series, Schlechter had what she calls an “aha moment.” “’You’ve lost your mind,’” Schlechter recalls her students saying when she introduced the assignment.

» Zombies in Amonkhet Standard We're approaching a very special time in Standard, where the Zombies of Innistrad will meet the Zombies (and mummies) of Amonkhet. Although Zombie decks have popped up sporadically in Standard over the past 18 months, they lacked the robust support they needed for long-term success. It may only take a couple of well-placed Zombies from Amonkhet to turn Zombies from a Swiss cheese full of holes to a rock-solid brick ready to smash people. And it just so happens that a couple of well-placed Zombies are exactly what we got. The weakness of Standard's Zombies is that they tend to have poor stats on their own. with your own Miasmic Mummy Shop Now to realize this. is capable of running away with a game when it survives. can immediately represent 9 or 10 power and toughness on the battlefield for the price of one card.

13 Compelling Social Work Blogs - N.A.H. For Social Workers, recognition can often be hard to come by. The successes are often private, while failures can often be public.

An Emerging Archetype in Amonkhet | Today I want to talk about U/R Emerge as an archetype. U/R Emerge occupies a very odd space in the magic universe. As a player who’s been around for some time, this is one of the more unique decks I’ve come across. To be honest, it’s virtually three different decks in one, depending on how each match plays out. Sometimes it’s a tempo deck leveraging early zombies into Elder Deep-Fiend, and at other times it’s a resilient midrange deck that chips away at the board and life totals until finishing your opponent off with some evasive beats. Typically we would think of these inconsistencies as a symptom of poor deckbuilding, yet all of these distinct strategies fit U/R Emerge perfectly and allow it to all come together in some sort of weird harmony. I’ve always felt that U/R Emerge was underplayed, even at the height of the two deck format last season. And it’s only getting better with the release of Amonkhet. This was the highest placing list I could find pre-Amonkhet. Noncreatures (13)

Social Media and Social Work | Social Media Ethics in Social Work Social media apps offer social workers powerful aids to their practices, but new ethical dilemmas, as well. Practitioners are figuring out how to utilize programs such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Web-based blogs in ways that are consistent with the long-standing rules of their areas of practice—and they don’t all agree on how to go about it. “I think that it’s important for us to consider our online presence and to be able to look at the challenges that our online presence poses for us… how our online presence complements or conflicts with our professional sense,” Kathryn Chernack, a licensed counselor, said during a January 2013 interview with Steven Schwartz of the University of Buffalo-School of Social Work’s “InSocialWork” podcast series. The Social Media Challenge Kathryn Chernack knows the challenges firsthand as a private-practice counselor and the director of clinical services for community residential programs at St. Christopher Ottilie Family of Services.
