A little about podcasting

  • What does the concept mean? (Briefly define the concept, including a hyperlink.)
  • What are some examples of service providers? (Include hyperlinks)
  • In general, how is the concept relevant for public relations students (or practitioners)?
  • How could you apply the concept for your client for this class? (You do not need to identify your client, unless you want to.)
  • A podcast is a series of digital-media files which are distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds for playback on portable media players and computers. The term podcast, like broadcast, can refer either to the series of content itself or to the method by which it is syndicated; the latter is also called podcasting. The host or author of a podcast is often called a podcaster.
  • (This information came from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcasting).
  • PR Practitioners can use podcasting to share important information with numerous people all at any time in any place. It can be sent through email, or can be listened to from the website.
  • My client would benefit from a podcast by posting the recording as public and notifying people in the community about it. That way they could hear about an upcoming event or hear the latest news on the organization. Since my client is fairly new and not extremely well-known in the area, podcasting could greatly benefit them and raise awareness about the organization.
