The following steps will illustrate how Mark is currently recording these interviews and how he is posting those to both a blog and a Wiki. This set up is a bit more complex than the standard podcast for two reasons - to get as good an audio recroding as possible and because instead of a single person doing a podcast, Mark is actually recording interviews so we have to be able to catch both sides of the conversation.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Our method requires the following supplies:
A phone audio recording device ( ie. the Quick Tap from JK Audio)
Audio recording software (any program that can record from your audio input)
AudioBlogging/ Podcasting hosting service
Step 2: Connecting Inbound Audio
Step 3: Launch audio software to record conversation
If possible, normalize (usually a common feature in this kind of software) the audio, this will smooth out the difference between loud and quite parts of the recording. Then you save audio as wav file (this preserves the original in a high quality format). Finally, you convert wav file to MP3 file (try to include ID3 meta data). This is done because MP3 files are so much smaller than wav files and are easier to dowload.
Step 4: Post to a Web service
Publishing the audio to a blog allows people to subscribe to that blog as it gets new content and have that new content automatically downloaded to their computer or MP3 player.
