I’ve discovered something wonderful and powerful about this medium we call podcasting.
As it is with all media before it, podcasting is a way to communicate with people. But there’s something special about podcasts and podcasting.
Podcasts are different
When you listen to an audio podcast, especially when you download it to your smartphone, you’re not tied to a screen, a page, or a broadcast transmitter.
You can listen anywhere.
You can listen while doing other things.
You can listen on the go.
That’s powerful. And quite wonderful.
With great power
With wonderful power like that, what should you do with it?
You can teach, train, and entertain with podcasts.
You can share your view of the world—with the world.
You can use podcasts to foster fellowship within a community.
Most podcasts focus on a topical niche (business, ministry, parenting, education).
OnTheGo.FM will do that, too.
But we are also exploring local podcasts that focus on a geographic niche.
Our newest show is all about that.
Podcast Local is a podcast about local podcasting. As you listen to Podcast Local, you’ll learn different ways to tell the stories of your community. You’ll also hear from other local podcasters and discover different ways to podcast local.
