Disability Podcasts and Podcasters
Synopsis: Disabled World list of podcasts on a range of disability topics including issues in society today, inclusion aspects, accessibility problems and other podcasting series. Podcasts are similar to radio programs in form, but they exist as audio files that can be played at a listener's convenience anytime or anywhere. Once a podcast is downloaded to your computer, tablet, or mobile device or subscribed to through RSS or iTunes, you can listen to it using your preferred media player.
A podcast is a program made available in digital format for download over the Internet. For example, an episodic series of digital audio or video files that a user can download to a personal device to listen to at a time of their choosing. A podcast series usually features one or more recurring hosts engaged in a discussion about a particular topic or current event. Discussion and content within a podcast can range from carefully scripted to completely improvised. Podcasts vary in style, format, and topical content. Podcasts are partially patterned on previous media genres but depart from them systematically in certain computationally observable stylistic respects. The conventions and constraints which govern that variation are emerging and vary over time and markets; podcast listeners have various preferences of styles, but conventions to address them and communicate about them are still unformed.
Podcasting has become a recognized medium for distributing audio content for corporate or personal use. Podcasts are similar to radio programs in form, but they exist as audio files that can be played at a listener's convenience anytime or anywhere. Various forms of podcasting formats include:
- Video Podcast (vodcast) - Includes video clips.
- Oggcast - A podcast recorded and distributed exclusively in the Vorbis audio codec with the Ogg container format and other similarly free codecs/formats.
- Podguide - An enhanced audio tour podcast featuring a single audio file where each chapter displays a location picture(s) and some things to look at during a certain stopover.
Once a podcast is downloaded to your computer, tablet, or mobile device or subscribed to through RSS or iTunes, you can listen to it using your preferred media player. By subscribing to podcasts, you can often automatically receive new episodes as soon as they are released online.
In this area of Disabled World, we will be focusing only on podcasts related to disability, including inclusion and accessibility issues - and associated sub-topics, as well as general medical and health topics.
Interested in Starting Your Disability Podcast(s)?
Podcast listenership continues to grow tremendously every year. You don't need to be very technical, and it does not require a lot of money to start your podcast. To begin at the entry-level of podcasting, you can start with a microphone, headphones, and recording and editing software. It is even possible to earn an income from podcasting. However, that generally requires a decent size audience base to attract potential podcast advertisers and sponsorships.
If you find you enjoy podcasting, the next step would be to invest in more "professional" equipment. As we intend to list podcasts relating to disabilities and the disabled at this stage, we won't go into the full details of creating your podcast(s)as many websites cover that topic and provide a lot more detailed information on beginning podcasting.
