With trepidation, and ten seconds to go before the computer clock turned 1100, we pressed “Play” and Shout! Digital Radio was broadcasting. And actually, for the one day we were on-air, it went really well.

In this blog I will share a few of my favourite post-production techniques that I use to add some visual flair to a video package – but don’t take up too much edit time.

Believe it or not, podcasts first came about in the 1980’s when they were known as audio-blogging. But it wasn’t until 2004 – when playback devices like the I-pod were introduced, that ‘podcasts’ became popular.
