The word podcast is short form for Portable-On-Demand-Broadcast. The whole idea is for the consumer to take the message they want to hear and store it on their device so that they can listen to it whenever they want.

Those who grew up in the days before television (1927) and internet (1983), know that radio ((1901) of which the first station was setup on the 2nd of November 1920) played a vital role upon people’s lives. The radio had very interesting, entertaining, yet equally informative shows that ran on it. They also know that if you missed a particular show, you had lost it forever. There were no reruns.

There came audio cassettes in 1962 and were introduced for the first time to a radio a station in 1963. Later in the years, people were able to tape the music they wanted to here from the radio into an audio cassette. This gave them an ability to listen to the music over and over again. A cassette could only hold very little amount of audio.

As technology advanced, today a radio show can be recorded by a listener from a cellphone. The downside is that a listener have to sit through the live radio show in order to record it.

With the growth and fame of the internet and its accessibility, content producers are now able to record a niched down content and make it available to their listeners. That means a person who is interested in podcasting, will not wait for the radio station to air a discusion on podcasting but they can go online and stream or download a podcast episode that provides the content they are looking for.

That is the whole idea of podcasting. It provides a specific content on regular basis, to a specific group of people. Listeners can access the podcast episode online and there is no such thing as “missing the show” in the world of podcasting. The podcast episodes are always there on the internet and can be accessed when needed and can be downloaded from anywhere in the world.

THE POINT OF THIS EPISODE

The purpose of today’s episode is to appeal to you my dear listeners/readers to give us content ideas. We seek to know from you, what exactly do you wish to hear from The Spokesdude Podcast. You can let us know by asking questions or by telling us directly what you’d like to hear.

I must lay it before you that we are changing the content strategy of The Spokesdude podcast. We seek to engage with our audience in a more precise and useful way. We want to give a definite answer when we are asked about the nature and content of The Spokesdude Podcast. We are trying to avoid being general. Just like our new podcast the Run Yourself Crazee is for the runners and the sporting community, we want to be specific with The Spokesdude Podcast.

The number one idea so far with regards to a specific niche is a career in Podcasting, Business, and Media production. We want to combine these three and address the podcasting community, which can be both in business and classified as media producers.

Judging by your questions and content ideas, which I am hopeful you will send, we may find ourselves launching new podcasts dealing specifically with the subject of “History,” “Mathematics,” ‘Science,” and other fields of study. You will remember that our aim is to establish a podcasting network, where more people can join us and provide content for other groups of people

CONTENT PROVIDERS

I wish to engage the youth of South Africa and introduce podcasting to them. I was very challenged when I saw some video clips of some 8 year old kids interviewing each other on a podcast, using Skype as a medium of communication. I feel the need to get our kids to know that there is a whole new world out there. Instead of getting into drugs and premarital sexual activity, why not use available technology to reach out to the world and earn money without waking up only to tremble at the presence of an employer.

I wish to draw as many content providers as possible as I can to The Spokesdude Network and work with them either to develop their social skills or learn new things from them. Refer to Our Vision.

Gambling

Hundreds of thousands of people worldwide are addicted to gambling. They carry this burden with them each and every day. They take their hard earned money and gamble it away. Upon realizing what they have done, they venture into debt trying to make up for the money they have lost. While trying to make ammends, they manage to deceive themselves into thinking that they can win and so they take the money they have borrowed and gamble it away. And this is just a beginning of their miserable life.

Unless intervention is made many will either be killed by illegal loan sharks for failing to pay or they will end their own lives. This is a life one should avoid altogether, should they wish to have a promising life .

Pyramid Schemes

Another financial virus which in a way is illegal, is pyramid schemes. These things were formulated by clever people who wanted to get hold of people’s hard earn money. They offer great earnings or profits without any work involved. They turn their victims into perpetrators of the crime by ordering them to recruit other people with the promise of getting a los of money.

This week was quite an interesting week from the start. I worked very hard on my garden. It has been a long while since I had put such great effort on working the ground. What I love about garden work is that I get time to think and reflect on life, the bible and other things.

Usually when I work hard or when I am running I always get brilliant ideas the problem is I forget those great ideas the moment I get relaxed. maybe I should carry a pen and every time I do hard work so that when my philosophical genius awakens I would right down everything it reveals

The point of today’s episode is get us realize that work is essential and that we must earn the right to claim any form of payment. We are to work for survival and also for luxury. We attempt to show why work is essential in a human being’s life and that there are consequences which follow the lack of work.

This episode is not scripted. Lungisa Joctrey is just talking freely about the ease of starting a podcast.

If you have a voice and you wish to be heard, start a podcast. You may think that starting a podcast is expensive but it is not. The basic need for starting a podcast is a recording device and you don’t have to look further than your smartphone. You can use your phone to record your podcast episodes. After recording them, upload them to sites like Archive.org or Soundcloud and start promoting your show episodes on Facebook and other social media platforms.

Some people would prefer to record on a microphone instead of a phone in order to achieve high quality sound. If you are one of those people, I recommend the Samson C01U Pro Condenser microphone. This microphone connects directly to the USB of your computer. I recommend this because it is a Microphone I am currently using. You can also try the Heil Sound Pr40 which is a very popular dynamic microphone.

Just give it a shot. It only takes that first step of getting out of your comfort zone and start recording your first episode. Come on just do it, you’ll thank yourself later.

Today we are talking about a subject that touches us all in different ways. The subject of death. Death is an event that will eventually happen to all of us within the next 120 years from now. unless the Lord Jesus Christ returns and end the mortal life as we know it, we are all owing to die someday.

We are not commissioned to know that day of our death, however, we are commanded to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ so that we may obtain eternal life.

The truth is, none of us is worthy of ever going to heaven or to live in the new earth. We can only enter therein by grace, through faith, in Christ Jesus alone. Should death happen today and we are not in the right standing with God, we are doomed. The only right standing with God there is, is Christ Jesus alone.

Listen to today’s show and learn more.

While many South Africans were enjoying the long weekend which occurred and ended right before they got paid, I went to a youth camp, which was organized by the youth of Africa Evangelical Church (AEC), East Rand Circuit.

AEC is a denomination to which I belong and in which I work as a pastor. I am currently based at Edendale Branch which is under Midlands Circuit. I was requested by the East Rand Circuit Youth to come and teach in their Youth Camp. They gave me a topic which said, “A Life Fashioned by the Word

I must admit that I had a wonderful time in that camp. It was a very rewarding experience to take sometime off from the noise of the city and head out to spend time in a camp site

We were at a camp El Olam, which is a Christian camp site. There were activites and games which you’d normally expect in a camp. The word was taught faithfully to those who were present at the camp and the Lord was good.

My greatest highlight in this camp was the hike. I had never been in a guided hike before. This was physically challenging and rewarding at the same time.

The trail started of down hill and then we crossed two streams of water. The latter section of the hike was challenging. We had a very steep hill about 150 meter high. After this hime we had breakfast and drove 2hrs to Durban and we had a wonderful at the beach.
