Podcasting 101

Podcasting 101

Podcasting 101 popularity

Podcasting 101: Popularity

  • In 2007 13% of US population has listened to a podcast


Considering podcasting in the c w classroom

Considering podcasting in the C&W classroom

  • Another form of “writing” and media

    • Part of technological literacy

    • Another form our students may need to master

  • Old/new form of writing and rhetoric

    • Traditional form (think Greeks)

    • Current “popular” from (presentations, speeches, …)

    • Digital with “universal” access

  • “Better” knowledge distribution model

  • Lessons learned may help other forms


Rethinking the old in new ways the 5 canons

Rethinking the old in new ways: The 5 canons

  • Invention: "discovering the best available means of persuasion” (Aristotle)

    • What to say?

    • What topoi?Take testimony for example

  • Arrangement: the order of discourse

    • Is there a genre/subgenre?

    • If so, what is the genre?

      • Music before? After?

      • Which point first?

      • Intro? Outro?

  • Style: the artful expression of ideas appropriate to one’s purpose

    How will it be said?

    • Ethos & pathos become key

    • Things to consider: Dictation, accents, jargon, word choices, expression, speed


Rethinking the old in new ways the 5 canons1

Rethinking the old in new ways: The 5 canons

  • Memory: “treasury of things invented” (Ad Herennium), Recall of topoi often drawing on kairos and grounded in audience and circumstances

    • Scripted podcasts: may delve into memory

    • Unscripted podcasts: just like the good ‘ol ancient days

  • Delivery: public publication/presentation of discourse. How it is said: presentation of argument with effective gestures, tone, words, movement, and images

    • Oral roots in new ways:

      • Editing

      • Sound levels

      • Voice modulation

      • Music

      • Visuals & album art

      • Performance

    • More “traditional” print/web based concerns

      • Transcripts/ text forms of the content

      • Websites and associated “places” for the podcasts


Rethinking the old in new ways audience purpose context tone

Rethinking the old in new ways:Audience, purpose, context, tone

  • Audience:

    • Their voice makes it more personal and increases their investment

    • Words, accents, music, length, …, and overall message more deeply considered

    • Better audience “visualization”

  • Purpose:

    • Often becomes more than “just another paper I have to write”

    • Can portray in “more” ways: music, tone, word choice, speed,…

    • Easily leads them into the next step

  • Context:

    • Suddenly user/listener/reader/ context matters

      • Will they be at their computer? Driving? Running? Cooking? Folding laundry?

    • Considers what matters and works for the user’s context

  • Tone: Tone now means something
