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.
