Steve Fisher is a sound engineer for network television sports. He finds that much of his television experience is relevant to podcasting. In both cases, a good recording of the source material will improve the quality of the finished program and simplify post production. Furthermore, the story is the focus of a podcast or a television program. Everything you do should serve to improve the telling of your story. In a podcast, that often means keeping the story short. It is important that the listener can find what he or she is looking for quickly.
