Chicago Area Podcast Network Growing

Jun 1st, 2008 | By | Category: General, New Media Organizations, Podcasting Networks

The Chicago Daily Herald reports that the the Chicago Area Podcasters Network has been growing since its inception in 2006, and is now an active, vibrant group.

The group started with 10 members and has grown to about 50. 

“Things really changed once iTunes made podcasting available,” said Tom Kim of Libertyville, founder of the podcasting group.

According to the group:

Meetings will feature guest speakers — professional podcasting hosts, producers, and audio engineers — speaking on a variety of intermediate to advanced topics such as recommendations for podcasting gear, DAW software, and hosting services, techniques for field recording and ENG (electronic news gathering), interview techniques, proper journalistic practice, how to achieve a professional sound, professional audio engineering, digital editing and mastering, podcast promotion and building an audience, how to plan show formats and release schedules, how to avoid legal problems and protect one’s intellectual property, how to avoid burnout and podfading, how to produce subject-specific programming (sports shows, music shows, interview programs, comedy shows, etc.), among others.

Presentations will run between 30-60 minutes, followed by a reception to meet and greet your fellow podcasters. Beginners welcome!

Membership in the group is free.
