mic That doyenne of podcasting, the Canadian chanteuse Donna Papacosta (known as Donna Pepsicola to her friends… or, well, me and Google, anyway) goes back to the very basics of podcasting with a six-point post.

Here’s an example:

Remember what you learned in preschool (Comms 101)
Just because you’re using a nifty new tool, don’t abandon everything else you know about communications. You still need to concern yourself with your goal, your audience and your key messages, being ever mindful of structure and tone.

Be yourself
Most importantly, be yourself, let your personality shine through, and have fun. You’ll make friends and learn a lot about yourself while you gain new skills.

A fabulous post with deceptively simple but powerful reminders to all of us who podcast or who are thinking of podcasting (it’s a fabulous medium!). Nice one, Donna!
