What is a podcast? Why you need to check them out!

Recently, I had the opportunity to talk to a roomful of wonderful parents of some of my students. I was explaining a new course that I am helping to write and create, and mentioned the fact that students in this future class would possibly have the opportunity to design or create a podcast episode as a part of the curriculum. I talked about how I was excited to be a new podcaster and how I loved podcasts, having listened to them since 2008! I talked about the potential of how music, technology, and creativity could come together to create a really cool learning experience! Everyone showed signs of thinking “How cool!”, but when I asked the group of parents in my room just how many of them listened to podcasts, probably two hands went up out of the 30 adults in my room. Now the question I asked was not “Do you know what a podcast is?”, but I will admit to being a little shocked at just how many of the parents seemed lost in my podcast discussion. Whenever I’ve talked to some of my students about podcasting, I get some of the same blank stares. I had no idea!

This all made me realize that people don’t know what they’re missing by not knowing about podcasting. They need to know how they can benefit from a podcast, and how easily accessible they are in this mobile day and age!

 

What is a podcast?

According to Wikipedia, “a podcast is a digital medium consisting of an episodic series of audio, video, PDF, or ePub files subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device.”

There are certainly people who have more knowledge about the history and tech of podcasts, but I can tell you that since around 2004 to 2005, podcasting has been a hugely popular medium for consuming free content (mostly), like entertainment, comedy, news of all kinds, inspiration, how-to, business, and the list goes on and on. And with the popularity of smart phones and other mobile devices, podcasting continues to grow at a fast pace!

Depending on what kind of podcast you choose to listen to, you might be able to think of it as like a talk show, a radio show, a comedy show, how-to, book discussions, or any kind of programming that you may be used to finding on television or the radio, and all delivered to your phone or device.

And anyone can create a podcast! This also means that, in most cases, we don’t have a producer or company telling us what we can and cannot do or talk about. When you tune in, you choose where you listen from, when to listen, if you need to pause or rewind, etc… and for FREE!

Once you subscribe to a podcast, you can sometimes find hundreds of great back episodes to listen to for days! Tired of endless top 40 hits? Annoyed by the endless commercial breaks on TV and radio? (I haven’t listened to the radio in years!) There’s almost sure to be podcasts out there for you! Have a favorite series that you watch on TV? There’s probably a fan podcast devoted to nothing other than that show! You’ll quickly find that you can listen to podcasts while you drive to work and back, take that nightly walk, go to the gym, work at your desk, or whatever task that you would normally participate in during your day. You’ll be able to gain a wealth of knowledge, or be entertained for weeks without running out of content.

Andrea Perron finally wraps up her real Conjuring story in Volume 3 of House of Darkness House of Light

A little more than a year ago, I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a ticket to an advanced screening of the then upcoming film, The Conjuring. In doing my research for the review that I wrote for the movie, I discovered the first two volumes of Andrea Perron’s House of Darkness House of Light, the books that tell of the author and family’s very real story that inspired the movie. The first two volumes of Andrea’s books are not light reads, but I consumed them as quickly as I could and blogged several times with my thoughts as I made my way through them. If you read any of those posts (that are some of my most popular, by the way), you know that I very much enjoyed the books, though there seemed to not be a large amount of connection to the movie. As you probably know, The Conjuring ended up being a huge success, and so it seemed that I was immersed in all things The Conjuring and House of Darkness House of Light for an entire summer and fall. 

Andrea’s first two volumes were published two years apart, and many of her readers and fans only discovered her due to The Conjuring, and so for a year she has been experiencing lots of pressure to complete and release the third and last volume. 

This weekend I share great news with you! Just days ago, the third volume was released, and on her Facebook page, Andrea Perron says “This last book was the most emotional and the most difficult.” She also says “The third volume is the best of the three books because it brings with it the gift of hope. Resolution. Perhaps even revelation.”

Book Description for all three volumes, from the publisher’s site:

Roger and Carolyn Perron purchased the home of their dreams and eventual nightmares in December of 1970. The Arnold Estate, located just beyond the village of Harrisville, Rhode Island seemed the idyllic setting in which to raise a family. The couple unwittingly moved their five young daughters into the ancient and mysterious farmhouse. Secrets were kept and then revealed within a space shared by mortal and immortal alike. Time suddenly became irrelevant; fractured by spirits making their presence known then dispersing into the ether. The house is a portal to the past and a passage to the future. This is a sacred story of spiritual enlightenment, told some thirty years hence. The family is now somewhat less reticent to divulge a closely-guarded experience. Their odyssey is chronicled by the eldest sibling and is an unabridged account of a supernatural excursion. Ed and Lorraine Warren investigated this haunting in a futile attempt to intervene on their behalf. They consider the Perron family saga to be one of the most compelling and significant of a famously ghost-storied career as paranormal researchers. During a seance gone horribly wrong, they unleashed an unholy hostess; the spirit called Bathsheba; a God-forsaken soul. Perceiving herself to be the mistress of the house, she did not appreciate the competition. Carolyn had long been under siege; overt threats issued in the form of fire…a mother’s greatest fear. It transformed the woman in unimaginable ways. After nearly a decade the family left a once beloved home behind though it will never leave them, as each remains haunted by a memory. This tale is an inspiring testament to the resilience of the human spirit on a pathway of discovery: an eternal journey for the living and the dead.

 

The book does not appear to be on Amazon right now, but can be purchased HERE

My “To Be Read” shelf has never been more full, but I look forward to getting this one on the doorstep and finishing the story! 

Peace!

One last update. In case you didn’t know, it’s Autumn. No really. It’s here. How do I know? I just finished my first week of school with students. And so no matter how many people are splashing in the pool as I drive by, since I’m back at school, it’s Autumn! I don’t think I’ve ever been so worn out and tired from adjusting back into a normal schedule and a new year, which is why you’ve seen mostly podcast content and less “blog” this summer. But I’m super excited, because as The Paranormalist reminded us this weekend, the Halloween countdown has begun… and I’m excited to share some great content! Stay tuned!
