When blogs first started becoming popular two decades ago we saw a rush of hobbyists and amateurs who quickly brought the medium forward, followed by professionals who joined to broaden their audience, followed by the average person who just wanted a simple way to share their stories. Podcasting has followed a similar trend and, thanks to the incredibly versatile electronic tools many of us now take for granted, just about anybody who wants to create a podcast can do so. Over the last year or so I've been helping a number of people in my neighbourhood learn how to create, edit, and publish their own audio shows, and some people have really taken to the medium.

It's time I get back into the swing myself.
