Yes, we have different means of getting information e.g. televisions, radio, online, newspapers, magazines and so much more. All are all forms of getting information at all times, in the office, car, on the road anywhere.
First, we have to define what broadcast is and what is about. Broadcast is distribution of audio or video content to a dispersed audience via any electronic mass communications medium but typically one using the electromagnet spectrum (radio wave), in a one-to-many model. Now broadcasting began with AM radio; broadcasting sprang up spontaneously around 1920. But before this all kind of electronic communications, radio, telephone and telegraph, were all “one-to-one” with the message intended for a single recipient. All these radio and television transmissions take place using both wire and radio wave. Communication was very important for ship-to-ship and to ship-to-shore communication is now important to everyone, reporters, business personal, even market women is nice .
Now podcast is one ways of getting information that is from the Net. Podcast is a digital medium that consist of an episodic series of audio, videos, and digital radio. Podcast is the distribution of audio files to download to digital music player, such as the iPod. With you don’t have to wait to listen to news by a certain time but can do that on your own by going online, listening to something that interests you. You get to choose what you want to listen to.
I came in contact with podcasting through Isu Media Abuja, where I came for my I.T. I had heard about it in school before but not this way. There are so many things you can do with this medium. Podcasting is just left for you to think and know what you really need it for. Mr Mfon Udoh, then Isu Media’s Head of Operations, was the one that taught me how to make a podcast, what is about, and I also did my research to know more about it, and that was how I started making my podcast.
In the next article, I will share what I learned from this experience.
