Experiments in podcasting

I have had an Anchor account since late last year. I had played around with it thinking their app might be a bossjock replacement but luckily, we have Backpack Studio now so there has been no need to use it.

I remembered the account just yesterday because Spotify bought Anchor and Gimlet Media and I downloaded the app again and looked at it but thought, will I ever have a use for this?

Well, this morning, I am on the Discord and told the group that I was on the way to McDonald's and Doug suggested I record that trip so I ended up with a short audio file that I guess I could have made a part of an Up In This Brain episode but I decided to take the opportunity to finally use that languishing Anchor account so here we are - the birth of yet another podcast!

The clips don't blend together as well as I would have liked. I recorded my audio on my iPhone with Voice Memo and imported that clip along with the intro and outro into the Anchor app. I probably could have edited it a bit. I don't know. I just imported and created the file.

Notice there is no episode number either. I think for this little experiment that it will be ok to not track the episode number.

The feed is here:

I know - that's a pretty generic and weird address but Anchor also adds you to Apple Podcasts and Spotify and other platforms. They said it will take two or three days for that to happen.

Also, advertising is on although I don't have enough listeners to qualify, I guess. I would love to hear what ads they put in this. Maybe that will happen eventually!

So, I'll keep it.

I'll use this feed for one-off segments and little weird stuff that I want to share quickly without editing. I'll probably put the Anchor app on my phone so I can record directly into it on the fly and share things immediately when the mood hits.

Three cheers for creativity! Woo hoo! Woo hoo! Woo hoo?
