Recently I have been intrigued in the audio app, Anchor FM following a friend’s recommendation to check it out. The application was intriguing but because the audio files were only live for 24 hours, I gave up on the idea of using it to create content.
Now that they have launched the ability to podcast from the app, I am back on track to give it a try. I need to start creating things and while I struggle with my photography, I figured it was time to turn to something else that I enjoyed from my publishing days, content creation.
So this is episode one of this audio podcast journey. Let me break down what I am thinking I will do, and the corny names I am giving each segment. I thought I would hold off till I think of better names but I spend too much time procrastinating as it is and this time I am just going to work with what I have.
I will first be creating show notes for each episode in order to get back into writing again.
Here is the list of segments I have come up with so far.
Mostly Me Mondays
This Monday feature, as the name suggests, will be mostly me talking about me. It may go off topic sometimes, but generally speaking, it will be a segment for me talking about myself. Hey, don’t judge, many of us like talking about ourselves. The idea is not to boast here, in fact, I think it will personally be more reflective.
Tech Talk Tuesday
Tuesdays will be focused on talking about another passion I have, technology. I am not sure exactly how this segment will unfold or what it will focus on primarily, but it will be technology based.
So this will be a place for me to talk about stuff work related I think. That said, because I work for a tech company, I am going to try not focus on work related to my work, but business focused discussion in general.
Throw Back Thursday
Okay, I know this is overdone, but I am going to try talk about things I have owned or used in the past and reflect on them from a modern perspective today.
Now, this is a term I used at PhotoComment Magazine back in the day. The difference here is, that I am not going to be publishing a photograph because obviously this it going to be pushed out as an audio podcast at first. So due to the medium of publishing, this segment will be about various aspects of photography and not just about a photo that you cannot see in audio waves.
But now it is getting a little late and I am exhausted from my travels back to Nigeria after a short trip home to be with the family.
I also hear the rumblings of a thunderstorm. Storms here in Lagos are like nothing I have experienced elsewhere. It is like a war with bombs being dropped. I though Johannesburg, my hometown, had terrible summer storms, but while lightning is aggressive in Johannesburg, the thunder in Lagos really makes me think that Zeus exists and is having one heck of a tantrum.
Will the next episode, chow.
P.S. while I will try to make a show each day, it may not always be practical and I would ask you to be patient with me. Your contributions on how I can change and improve things are welcome.
