School of Podcasting


Dec 22, 2014

Today we talk with John Wilkerson who has SEVEN children about HOW THE HECK DO YOU PODCAST WITH SEVEN KIDS IN THE HOUSE? John has been podcasting since 2005 and has lots of tips. We talk about the following topics: When do you know its time to podfade? What kind of gear do you use? Using your web host for a media host (I was surprised).

Tips for Podcasting With Children in the House

  1. Lots and lots of prep so you are ready to take advantage of every opportunity
  2. Get out of the house if possible (maybe the car?)/
  3. Go early or late (record while they are sleeping).
  4. Give yourself a limit (be focused)
  5. Reward your kids for being quiet (get them involved).

John has a full blog post at http://jesusgeek.info/5-tips-for-podcasting-when-you-have-little-kids/ John's current project is the Wired Homeschool. You can find it at http://thewiredhomeschool.com/ wiredhomeschoolThe Wired Homeschool provides practical advice for homeschooling parents who use technology as part of their homeschool curriculum. Topics include Internet safety, responsible computer use, smartphones, tablets, e-readers, educational apps, social media, and more. Johns podcast has lead him being asked to speak at some conventions for homeschooling. How cool is that? In the interview he explains how he has had other podcasts and as life and interests changed, John no longer had the same passion for those shows, but is very excited to be doing the Wired Homeschool podcast.
