AudioMo as an Experiment for Podcasting

· by Ivan · Read in about 1 min · (208 Words)

This year I participated in my first «AudioMo» - an online challenge to record something every day during the month of June. Record what, exactly? What ever strikes your fancy - much like what folks post to social media; your mileage may vary. :) I enjoyed hearing other AudioMoers (1), and getting to know new folks. The #AudioMo hash tag brings people together around these recordings in a pretty cool way. I’m glad I completed the challenge - making a recording every day wasn’t always something I was in the mood for, but it was worth it.

Check out my AudioMo recordings on my audioBoom page.

I treated my AudioMos like mini podcasts - rather than just talking about how many coffees I drank (2), or recorded the sound paint makes when dries, I discussed things which were both authentic and (hopefully) interesting to listeners. While I don’t have a clear idea for a podcast, nor a podcast co-host, my AudioMo experience does confirm that I would enjoy podcasting some day.

  1. Are AudioMoers sort of like lawn mowers...? LOL
  2. I don't drink coffee, although I do love the smell of it. That was a humorous example of the sort of benign detail I sometimes see on social media.
