Feedback: The Podcasting 101 tutorial was immensely helpful! I signed up to learn about podcasting to help launch a new business. Not only did I learn the basics, but Burt Lewis customized the sessions and introduced me to the tools I needed prior to setting up a podcast. Burt is a hugely generous person who is passionate and dedicated to sharing his expertise to help others succeed and reach their true potential. He is one of the most knowledgeable, smartest people I have ever met. More importantly, he has a wonderful, motivating teaching style that doesn’t intimidate. I’m not sure how Burt did it, but after meeting with him for three sessions, I was able to update my social media tools, start a website, and test out and add an ntroductory podcast onto the website. Best of all, I am now truly excited about playing around with these tools. I would encourage anyone who wants to improve their podcasting and other social media computer skills to sign up for Burt’s classes. He’s the best!
Can we use your comments in our reports and studies? YES!
This was taken the other day at the Ames Free Library, Queset House, William M. Ames Podcasting Studio which I helped create. Library users can receive one-on-one instruction from me and use the studio on their own to create podcasts. This photo will be part of an upcoming Ames Free Library Podcasting Studio exhibit at the State House in Boston. Each year selected libraries and selected projects such as this one showcase something that is exciting for legislators and can act as a model for other libraries to follow.
Thanks to the Ames free Library, citizens lie Dan and Rob are now able to reserve recording time to create their own podcasts.

Podcasting is hot right now, I did my first video podcast in 2007 and it currently has 107,000 views. I did 75 live local cable shows a few years ago and I’ll talk more about that later. I currently give a Podcasting 101 course at my local library and will gladly help anyone that wants to learn how easy it is. It’s a simple and easy way to get the word out and as Kate Stallings, a social media marketing expert, says, “it’s at everyone’s fingertips…”
Here is one of my first video podcasts:
