I sit down next to Mum and she shows me what to do. First we download the program Audacity, which is a free audio editor and recorder. I decide to use my computer’s internal mic. All I need to do now is make a list of things I want to talk about.
Before long I am sitting in front of my computer. I hit the ‘record’ button on Audacity and start speaking. I am recording my very first podcast! It’s a lot easier than I thought it would be. I find the words flowing off my tongue. It doesn't take very long for me to record everything I want to say, I am rather surprised. I thought it would be a lot harder.
Unlike video making, my podcast doesn't need much editing. I just add a piece of music at the start – this is my theme music – and I am done. Then I export my recording as an MP3 file and save it to my computer.
Next I sign up for a account. This is a podcast hosting website. I upload my file and then smile. I am a podcaster!
I really enjoyed making my podcast. It’s called My First Podcast. I am really imaginative! Would you like to listen?
