One small step for an incompetent

Ian Reeves, who's one of the contributors to Word, got me interested in the idea of video podcasting. I thought it might be interesting to see how it might work with my column in Media Guardian about magazines. After all, magazines aren't just vessels for "content". They're three dimensional interactive devices with touch and feel at their heart. So I've had a go all on my own. This is about the launches of Portfolio and Monocle. Anyone who wants to subscribe can just put this link into the "subscribe to podcast" box under the "advanced" tab on their iTunes menu. I love podcasting and we've put a lot of work into the Word podcasts. It's very gratifying to see how popular they seem to be. I've still no idea how they work and every step we've made has been an agonising achievement of trial and error. If anybody wants to tell me what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it I'll buy them a drink.


  1. This episode from GeekBrief is very techie, but interesting all the same.

    Enjoyed the kitchen-table-cast.

  2. without getting too multimediatastic could you also post some links to close ups of the mags you feature or to the mags sites. Slide shots in the podcast may give it the air of corporate training video or early 80's kids show.

  3. Thanks for those suggestions. If only I could be as chirpy as her. Have put some links in to the magazines.

  4. Fair Play, enjoyed that
