Podcasting Made Easy

I’m halfway through putting together a series of audio pieces on the poet Gwen Harwood for my Year 12 Literature class; it will be a mix of students reading the poems, to students and teachers discussing the poems: Harwood; the album! I enjoy listening to podcasts, and have tried making them in the past, with limited success.

Maybe I’m a frustrated broadcaster at heart. Okay, I am a frustrated broadcaster. Maybe I just want to justify buying one of those cool retro Snowball Microphones. Okay, that too! But there’s something powerful and intimate and compelling about audio done well, and it matches beautifully with poetry.
