Audio in PR

How cool are podcasts?

Very cool! Podcast are basically audio files that are delivered via RSS feed. All you have to do is subscribe to them. Podcasts can be in the form of talk shows, educational training and tutorials, comedy clips, debates and even foreign language tutorials. They give the subscriber the choice of what they want to listen to or whatever interests them.

My number one reason I think that podcast are so cool is because you can listen to them wherever you want by downloading them to your mp3 player, on smartphones with programs such as Pocket Tunes and Real Player for Palms. How cool is it to listen to your favorite news program or educational program of your choice in your car on your way to work. What a great way to manage your time while sitting at a standstill during traffic.

Of course, you can also listen to them whenever you want on your computer at home by downloading them to programs such as Winamp, Windows Media Player and iTunes.

My favorite podcast that keeps me updated and reminded of the rules in grammar is Grammar Girl, she posts weekly on topics such as sentence fragments, verb tenses and pronoun usage. I recommend anyone who has to write frequently, which I do being a public relations student, to listen in.

Blogs are a great medium to reach a PR professionals public’s and using podcasts is just as beneficial if not more so. Podcast are on the rise and I think that in the future there will be more podcasts than blogs so it is my recommendation to learn how to listen to and create them.
