Not long after we got the Patreon page all set up, and this site reworked and it was all going along lovely… I got a job. Actually, I got several jobs. Multiple jobs. And suddenly found myself working 50 plus hours a week with a daily drive of about 2 hours. Now, this meant I had way less time to work on the CU group and website but it did mean that I had plenty of downtime to listen to audio books and podcasts. Then it occurred to me, I also have time to record a podcast. Now, granted, recording a podcast while driving means that there is no script, because you can’t drive and read at the same time. And it means that the sound quality isn’t great (at least until I got a decent microphone, which I have now.) So the first 4 episodes are pretty bad quality wise but it is getting better and I am learning.I am not promising amazing audio quality or professional podcasts, it’s just me and my many, many words. 🙂
We are 5 episodes in (with another ready to be edited, which will still have not so great sound quality because I recorded it spontaneously after a really bad day and before I had the mic set up for in the car.) I didn’t post it other than on my private blog until I was sure we would actually get more than 2 episodes out of it. I do have a youtube channel set up for it as well if you prefer to listen there (I am working on getting the current podcasts posted there), or you can listen via your favorite podcast aggregator. I post them all immediately to Castbox (my favorite aggregator) and then later will go back and add them to Youtube as I have time.
So, if you prefer listening to podcasts on YouTube you can subscribe on the Unschool Carpool youtube channel (complete with random videos of the current weather at the time that I upload the video- down the road I hope to get some footage of the actual drive to post in the video just for fun.) And if you prefer downloading or listening to streaming podcasts you can get the audio only version here on Castbox.
