Urban Vancouver – Festival and Culture Sounds podcasts

Urban Vancouver podcast cover

Over the years, i’ve assembled various recording of Vancouver-centric cultural events, parades, festival, street-strolls, sound-seeing and other miscellany. I bundle and publish under the vaguely euphemistic moniker of “Urban Vancouver”.

As such, i wrapped a proper podcast feed around the lil collection of – currently 7 – audio dispatches.

Stick this in your pod-o-rator if inclined to tempt your tolerance for ambiguity.

There’s a great conversation on Uncle Weed’s podcast recently between Dave and Amber Case. You should listen to it.Amber, a rocking cyborg-anthropologist, explains how in the future books will remain while some data will disappear. She made me stop to consider this.What if the Internet disappeared. What if you lost all of your files, photos, videos, journals, diaries, blog posts, etc.? What if connectivity was no more.

What Don’t You Know About Hootsuite? via The Marketing Mentress

What Don’t You Know About Hootsuite?

Aug 1, 2011

Dave Olson is the Community Marketing Director for social media dashboard maker HootSuite. Working in the internet space since 1996, Dave’s experience includes ISP’s, e-commerce, open source web communities, movie promotion, a green business directory and an alternative accreditation program during the Vancouver Olympics. A graduate of Evergreen College in Inter-disciplinary Studies, he frequently presents at events and to the media discussion technology, art, and culture. After living and traveling worldwide, Dave now enjoys exploring his local North Vancouver mountains and forests.

We discuss how Hootsuite was a huge asset to getting the word out about the Egyptian uprisings in January. That country had set up roadblocks to Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. However, with the use of Hootsuite and all its assets, the messages were broadcast in spite of the roadblocks the Egyptian Government tried to set up on the internet.

Hootsuite also was a big part of helping with the Japanese Earthquakes this year. You will find out how this all happened in this inspiring interview with Dave Olson.

Podcast Publishing Recipe

So you have an audio file ready to go?

Did you Levelate it? Levelator http://www.conversationsnetwork.org/levelator

A complete show pack includes:

* Episode – 64 or 128K stereo mp3, levelated

* ID3 tags (title, description, lyrics, art)

* Album art (photo edited in PS or flickr/picnik)

* Blog post with show notes/links with footer

Now onto Publishing

First, ya gotta put the file somewhere – usually via FTP or web upload (archive.org)

Second, create a Blogpost for the epiosde (i use wordpress.com) add album art, description, related links, “show notes”

Third, in the blog post, create an absolute link to the .mp3 file – whereever it lives + add to a category

Fourth, preview, publish, hurrah!

Tuning your Feed

  • Create an account at Feedburner (feedburner.google.com) – This creates a multi-purpose “envelope” for your podcast feed
  • Includes different RSS standards, ATOM + Apple-specific stuff & stats, troubleshooting etc. & subscribe by email
  • Grab your new shiny feed from Feedburner and submit to iTunes music store
  • Wait, then one day you can share the absurdly long URL with others

Keys to a solid episode

1) Tell a story (often requires rearranging clips to create a narrative – add some music to give the folks time to reflect and chill as needed)

2) Remove douche-baggery (yeah sometimes there are false starts, stupid comments, missteps, self-indulgent crap and people calling “dave” – all that goes)

3) Sonically comfortable (export as AIFF, normalize/compress using Levelator, then convert to .mp3, listen and re-export til it sounds sweetopian)

I’ve found that the podcast episode “album art’ pieces are hard to keep sorted. I’ve also found that there are a lot and in a variety of sizes. For a flashback and convenience, here’s a batch of them all in one place with more to come as i find them. Find more Podcast Album Art in Flickr. Many are by me, the rest are by my pal Bread. See also Misc. Canucks on Flickr and Hockey NW and Canucks Outsider art archive on Flickr.
