I Use To be in Radio

New member Scott Eiland of the School of Podcasting talks about his days in radio. He says listening to podcasts have rekindled the fire to share his opinion with the world. He sees that, “Yes, I CAN do this…” and he is taking the steps to launch an “Internet Radio Program” where he doesn't have to answer to a program director, and has the freedom to build a show that is exactly the way he wants it. He realizes that his budget may not lend itself to buying the top line equipment, but he can start with what he has, and upgrade later. If you're goal is to start a podcast so you might get into radio, this interview may change your mind and see that podcasting is a much more free creative outlet.

  1. don’t know that this is the proper place for this comment but…

    I’m enjoying going through your site and content. Just found a tip you left on another podcaster’s site, I believe, about setting up a redirect to itunes. Bingo…about a minute later I had the same thing set up through my host. A small thing, yes, but I thought it was a good tip for a newbie like me and wanted to give you an ‘attaboy’. Thank you and keep up the good work. God bless you. Tommy
