Around 2014 my interest in listening to Podcasts was growing. I found these a convenient way to listen to detailed, specialised subjects not normally available on mainstream audio media and it wasn't long before I decided that I too should be producing rather than just consuming content.

My pods were to reflect my own interests which covered vehicles, technology, ideas, opinions, a bit of politics and news all dressed in a light basting of humour. So, overall a bit like my website. Only noisier.

I researched how to produce podcasts, using only the equipment I already possessed, first trying to record the words on my Apple MacBook's GarageBand application. This proved peculiarly difficult and time consuming plus the inbuilt mic was sub-standard.

I ended up using a specialised App on my iPhone which allowed me to record, edit and upload the content straight to my WordPress site and consequently linked to the iTunes Store. It also allowed flexibility on where and when I could record the content.

I chose iTunes as this was where I searched for and listened to content myself, where all my technopeers published their stuff and was a simple one stop place for many self respecting podcasters.

I had to 'host' the content myself and used my WordPress site for this and even paid the premium fee to allow uploading of audio content.

vinceunlimited Podcasts commenced on 6 Aug 2014 and ran for a short series of 16 weekly casts. They were first published on the vinceunlimited WordPress site [website version 4] and uploaded to iTunes where they remain to this day


Podcast 17?

Hi guys,

Just a quick note to apologise for not issuing a podcast yesterday. In theory I should have been able to do a dozen or more as I've taken a week off work to spend more time with my tech. However the process of bringing a new laptop into the world whilst simultaneously decommissioning an older model plus doing the same for my phone and tablet has put my content creation skills on hold for a while.

I may blog about the experience some day. I may not. I think you know me well enough by now to know that nothing is predictable. Including now, when the next podcast will come out. Please bear with me or alternatively use a subscription service to get notified of release. Either via this site, or via iTunes [search 'vinceunlimited' and laugh out loud at the other options they give before settling on the one actually called vinceunlimited].

Either that or email me direct. Or post me a letter. Or kidnap my daughter. Or hire a light aircraft with a message tied to its tail and buzz me consistently until I surrender and issue the next instalment. Now I'm seeing the clearer picture. It's in your hands not mine. It's not my fault at all.

Cheers.

Pod 016 - Ingreedyents

An extract from a photograph of the first part of an ingredients list
Ingredients are just stuff that's in something. So why not just say STUFF? Waste of ink? You decide

Tah Dah! Another episode of the vinceunlimited podcast.

In this audio log I get bored and dissect the detailed ingredients list on the back of a packet.

Any resemblance to reality must of course be tempered with the historic facts previously issued in this series.

But fun all the same.
