Can I be the first to admit a cloth diaper podcast does not sound very exciting? Seriously. Of all the possible topics you could sit down and chat about cloth diapering, it’s kind of a snore, but I’m going to try.
Everyone and their Uncle has suggested I get into video.
I tried video, and I’m not digging it. Video requires me to have a clean house. Sure, I could shove the dirt into one corner and pretend the couch is clean, but I’m just not that type of person.
During the 8th Annual Flats & Handwashing Challenge, I tried a few videos (find them on YouTube) and I discovered I loved voice recording over my videos. This give me the push I needed to finally do that podcast thing.
I really enjoy listening to the radio and podcasts. My husband works long hours, and as a mom of two toddlers (who don’t yet speak), the house is quiet and lonely. Podcasts bring me laughter, smiles, tears, and inspiration when life feels pretty lonely and dismal. The extra noise in the background helps keep things feeling sane without losing my mind.
I’m no podcast listening expert, and I just catch my favourites on the regular, but I’m excited to listen more, learn more, and join this crazy side of content creation.
That said, I’m pretty much a podcast newbie.
We have a recorder because of my husband’s job and rented a microphone and fancier recorder from the local music shop. With a little work and a lot of garage band editing, I’m getting there.
But, I have a lot to learn.
If you know a thing or two about podcasting leave me a comment. This audio world doesn’t appear to be as simple as push play and record.
I’m looking forward to figuring out how to record an interview. I truly believe cloth diapering is a diverse experience and all of our stories and challenges are worth sharing. Plus, who want’s to listen to me drone on for hours?
Other Cloth Diaper Podcasts?
Did you know there are other cloth diaper podcasts?
I didn’t. Not until 4 days ago when I asked in a Facebook group. Turns out, I’m not the first to have this great idea.
