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 coach with podcasts.
You can share your view of the world—with the world.
You can also use podcasts to foster fellowship within a community.
Most podcasts focus on a topical niche (business, ministry, parenting, education, etc.). OnTheGo.FM, the network, will be producing those kinds of podcasts, too.
However, we also want to explore local podcasts that focus on a geographic niche. We are starting that with a local podcast for our city, our home.
As we discover ways a local podcast can foster fellowship through sharing stories of our community, we want to show you how you can podcast local in your own community.
