Hi there! My name is Aaron. I made this show to help people like you make a great podcast. If you're interested in learning about podcast production, storytelling, recording gear, growing an audience, getting better at communicating and speaking, overcoming the hurdles, connecting with your listeners, expanding your personal and professional network, and other things like that, this is the show for you. Since 2012, I've been lucky enough to work with many great podcasts, including shows from Dribbble, seanwes, 5by5, SVS Learn, Shoptalk, CodePen, and more. This show contains nearly everything I've learned about podcasting in the past 10 years, and I'm still making updates and new episodes as I learn more. Thanks for listening, and happy podcasting!
I wanted to make this episode to inspire you if you've ever thought about creating an online course or screencast series. If you've never done it before, there's a lot to learn. You wonder, “How do I plan this thing? How do I write out what I want to say? How do I get good audio and record good video and how the heck do I record screencasts in the 16:9 aspect ratio? (Hint: just buy a 16:9 monitor.) The video guy for the seanwes network, Cory McCabe, joins me today to talk about setting up to shoot a video course. We're going to talk about how the first week of shooting went, the gear we're using, what went well, what didn't go well, and what we'd do differently next time.
