Introduction to Podcast Unit
Podcasts are an accessible source of content that many people like. It integrates communication and technology, two core values of Freestyle Academy.
We chose to make our podcast about plants because of a podcast we listened to early on in this unit.
About this Podcast
Our podcast is about plants! Bella and I talk about our favorite plants, provide tips on how to grow plants, and educate listeners on the many health benefits from keeping plants
Bella and Elen are seniors at Freestyle Academy. We are both film students, and enjoy plants. We made this podcast in hopes of encouraging our fellow students to grow and appreciate plants.
Here’s our podcast
This podcast was very difficult. I don’t like hearing my voice, and I had to hear it a lot over the course of this project. I also am not very good at using Pro Tools and Reason. We had to make our own music for the intro and outro and I didn’t know how to begin. But there were a lot of positives that came out of this podcast too. I learned how to be patient with myself when I misspeak or stutter. I also learned how to be ok with the fact that it doesn’t sound professional. I’m a student, it’s a student production. We don’t have a massive budget which covers expensive microphones and writers. Mistakes are going to happen, and you have to deal with it.
