Podcasting. Is it ok to read?
November 23, 2008
Close on the heels of recording my first podcast with Mhairi Petrovic of Out-Smarts Marketing, I was on the Facebook page of long-time friend and podcasting consultant, Donna Papacosta of Trafalgar Communications.
Donna’s post on How to read a podcast script and not sound like you’re reading caught my eye.
For anyone who is considering doing a podcast, my best advice is to be prepared. It’s number one on Donna’s list too. Often being prepared means determining what you’re going to say ahead of time, which then leads to writing out your script (or answers if it’s an interview,) which then means you might be inclined to read it. Making it sound natural can be a real challenge. Take heart. Read Donna’s helpful post and you’ll soon be sounding like a podcasting pro!
