What is podcasting? Basically you can think of it as "radio shows" that you download to your mp3 player and listen to at your leisure. You'd be amazed at the amount of podcasts available now on every topic....and I have created the first Marilyn Monroe podcast called "My Marilyn". You subscribe to podcasts with software you download to your computer. It automatically downloads new shows for you when they become available.

For more info on my podcast check it out at http://marilynmonroe.ca/podcast

Ah shucks! Thanks! No you don't need to have an ipod to listen to it. It downloads to your computer and then you can put it onto your ipod (or other MP3 player) and listen to it on the go. Or you can just listen on your computer. Just warning you that the files are pretty big! I use the ipodder software at http://ipodder.sourceforge.net/index.php and you just subscribe to different feeds and it downloads them all for you when new ones are put up. That is cool so you don't have to keep checking different websites to see if a new show has been posted. Also, I can keep track of how many downloads I get that way. When you download the MP3 straight from the site I can't track it. Sure hope my bandwidth holds out!!

If you like my podcast you can vote for it at Podcast alley http://www.podcastalley.com/search.php?searchterm=marilyn

Just wanted to mention that I have uploaded my second show. It features a wonderful song that was based on the Christies auction and how sad it was to see her personal items up for sale. So I hope you check it out.

Instructions for subscribing:
1. Download ipodder at http://ipodder.sourceforge.net/index.php
2. Open up the software and in the space next to "add feed manually" paste this link http://feeds.feedburner.com/MyMarilynPodcast and then hit the ADD button. At the bottom you'll see a button that says "Check for new podcasts" and the shows should download for you automatically.

If you have any questions about my show or podcasting in general just let me know.

Thanks!
Melinda

Hi Melinda,

What a great idea! I don't have an iPod but another (which I consider better than an iPod, actually) mp3 player. Since the show should also work for my player, I will gladly download your shows!!!

MMcamera
Thanks! That is great. My boyfriend has an iriver and I am envious of it actually. It is soooo much smaller than the iPod. Anyway, I hope you like the show.

Melinda,

I am working on updating ES, is it okay if I mention the podcast you created ? (I will, naturally, provide a link to your site smile1.gif)

Also, I just wanted to let you know that I have listened to it and that because it was so interesting I actually stopped doing whatever it was I was doing, and listened through it all without doing anything else LOL!
I love how you talk about various subjects and explain things for people who are not that familiar with Marilyn... Great idea you had. I can hardly wait for the next shows!

Oh and that song "Marilyn's things"... is a great finding. I am always so disgusted by the fact that so many personal items were sold... to perfect strangers. What is even worse is how instead of keeping everything together, and creating some kind of museum or something, the estate is only trying to make profit. Soon we won't have anything concrete of Marilyn's to rely on. Just like if she hadn't existed. I think this is terribly depressing. sadballerina.gif
MMcamera
Thanks for listening to it! And I'm glad you liked Marilyn's Things, I can't believe it wasn't popular in the Marilyn groups when the auction was taking place. It is so beautifully written and performed. And the message really gets across how sad these auctions really are.

Thanks again,
Melinda

Hey, I know how you feel!! I can't remember the last time I listened to music on my iPod. Now it is all podcasts. I have it hooked up in my car so on my drive to work I put them on. So it is just like I'm listening to the radio. I really think this podcasting thing is going to be huge. As soon as some big names get involved. I believe Paris Hilton is the first celebrity doing one and it starts later this week.

Anyway, thanks for listening.

I am not sure if any of you are familiar with Sirius Radio (http://www.sirius.com) which is a satellite radio station? Well, starting today at 6pm Adam Curry is going to be doing a 4 hour podcast show. Bascially, promoting podcasting to radio listeners. Each hour he will be showcasing 1 podcast and I just found out that he is going to be playing my Marilyn podcast! He did a test run that is available for download at http://www.curry.com/2005/05/11 and my entire 25 minute show is played. I am just stunned out of the thousands of podcasts out there he would chose to highlight mine!!!

That is okay I know lots of people who have a hard time figuring it out. I guess the easiest way to think of it is kinda like a song. Have you ever downloaded a song on the internet? They are usually MP3 files. That is the same as my podcast. A podcast is basically like a radio show where a host talks, plays music or whatever they want. So I do this "radio show" and put it on the web as a MP3 file. (Note: it is a BIG file because the shows are 20+ minutes long). You can download the MP3 straight from my website or you can use a piece of software and subscribe. This means that it will automatically download new shows for you when they get posted. Does that make sense or did I confuse you more?

Oh yeah, I should have mentioned that you don't need an MP3 player at all you can listen on your computer smile1.gif Again, any suggestions from you guys would be great. Does it sound like I am "reading" too much? Is it too long?

Melinda

Melinda, I didnt even realize you were reading off of something. You sound great. I think they are perfect in length, I actually wish they were longer. I enjoy hearing the different stories and your opinions on Marilyn-related topics. You are doing an great job.

PS. Is there anyway you could send me that Anna Nicole song?

Melinda,


your podcast was AMAZING! it IS amazing!

I didn't sleep because I wanted to listen to them all
haha

the're so well written and you have great little asides as well as great information!

I could kind of tell you were reading from your paper sometimes, but it's not that big of a deal.

The only thing I kept noticing was that you say "um" a lot. I notice this because this year I was told to count how many times I say "um" "uh" etc and then I would have to find some punishment for each time I said it... so I really notice it when people say "um".


Other than that, you're doing a great job and please keep it up! thumbup1.gif

Thanks Katie. And you are absolutely right about the um's I am really bad at that. You don't realize who much you do it. Especially when I just talk off the top of my head. Thankfully, you'll find most podcasts are like that since we are definately NOT professionals smile1.gif I will try to watch that though.

[snapback]80375[/snapback]



You don't really "win" anything but you get lots of free publicity. The top ten podcasts are featured on the front page of www.podcastalley.com and apparently the press ends up doing stories on them, etc. You just get lots of exposure and new people will likely check out your show. They reset the totals each month so it is best to get lots of votes early in the month so you have longer on the list. So if you have any friends who wouldn't mind submitting a vote for me feel free to pass the link along! Thanks!

First, go to http://www.marilynmonroe.ca/podcast/. Then, scroll all the way down to the bottom, the first podcast is at the bottom and as you go up from there, the dates get more recent. To download the podcast, right click on the word MP3 near the date. Wait for it to download and then, voila, you can listen to it! biggrin.gif

Yep. That is pretty much sums it up. I hope this works for you.
