With new online tools, you don’t have to be an audio engineer to make a podcast. In this first-ever Technology Review podcast, senior editor Wade Roush explains how.

Welcome to our first podcast at technologyreview.com – appropriately, we think, it’s about podcasting.

Basically, this podcast is a 27-minute audio file created by our Westcoast senior editor, Wade Roush (who admits to being a “complete amateur” at podcasting).

To listen to it in your browser, right now, just click the play button in the audio-looking graphic below (it’s the small middle triangle).  

If you want, you can also copy the podcast file directly to your iPod, by following the directions below:  

  1. Open iTunes
  2. Select Menu > Advanced > Subscribe to Podcast
  3. Enter : http://podcast.trwebcast.com/wrpodcast.xml

or you can download the MP3 file to your hardrive:

Whatever way you choose to access it, just be sure you have speakers or headphones ready to listen.
For the first five minutes, Wade introduces the concept of podcasting – what it is and isn’t. Then he speaks informally for around 20 minutes, about key websites, open-source products, and the steps he chose to create this podcast. Wade also demonstrates some music and sound effects in his podcast, while discoursing about the field of podcasting – its key phrases, fun features, and future possibilities. 
As with any audio recording, you can pause it at any time and resume it later. Click and enjoy.
