So... I'm toying with the idea of starting a weekly (twice a month? monthly?) video podcast. I know, right?! Is it possible that I've gone completely insane? Seriously. See, I have this little Mac Powerbook and I've been slowly unlocking the mysteries of the Mac world (being a Mac convert and all) and I'm learning all about GarageBand and other cool stuff and my good friend who is, like, totally a big ol' podcaster (http://www.mommycast.com/) has been, oh, let's say encouraging me (read: hounding me day and night, for reals!) to jump into the exciting world of podcasting! Now, as I loathe my recorded voice with the burning passion of ten thousand suns-- because of the "I'm Twelveness"?-- I find that it isn't so bad when my face is attached to it. I don't know why. Weird, huh? It's inexplicable.
Now here's the thing: This jump into scary video podcasting waters would mean investing in microphones and cameras and tripods and batteries and updated software and my own Desperate Working Mommas domain and... and... and lots of other way important, possibly expensive stuff! Stuff that my children would break in a heartbeat if they were anywhere near it! So I must weigh this out carefully in my mind.
Good LORD! The agony of indecision!
But seriously? I think I am totally going to do it. Well, once I figure out how the hell all this stuff works, naturally. It could be a while. I am SO not even joking. Podcasting is hard, yo?
But still! Exciting!
Although I think my videos would be more like Cat-on-the-Street-casts, and I don't even know if that is technically "video podcasting." It could just be "acting the fool." Whatever.
Anyhoos, video podcasting... (*shakes head ruefully*) What will they think of next? TV shows we can watch on our iPods?! Ha! I know, right? Silly Cat. As if.

I think it is a great Idea and I can't wait to see one of your vids become a viral video and go all over the internet. And then I could say I knew her when she was just a normal blogger and not a pod caster.

Well, I don't thinkI've ever known her when she was normal, but yeah, I'm with William. If you need anything from any of us - technical support, advice, encouragement, 70's porn soundtracks ... just axe and it's yours ...

Can't wait to see this... uh, *whispers* what if I don't have an iPod?

OddMix -- I was wondering the same thing... I hope so!
That would be killer cool, Cat!

Nah, you would only need an iPod if you wanted to download it to one. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure you could just stream it on your computer...
Then again, I know nothing. This is apparently "a problem."

oh YES! that would be hilarious. And it would probably give your fingers a break because they most definitely do not type as fast as you can probably....talk.
Hypothetically, of course.
I am so there Cat. Looking forward to it.

You are so going to end up with a Carson Daly deal it ain't funny.
