A podcast is a series of digital audio files that are released episodically. This podcast artifact is a 4 minute segment on Universal Design. In order to create the podcast my first step was to plan and write a script that I would record with my voice. I used Audacity, an open source audio recording editing program, to record my podcast. Once the podcast was finished, the Audacity project was exported as a .mp3 file so that it could be played in Windows Media Player. Some of the important things that I learned was to always speak in a conversational tone, watch my speed, and speak loudly.
