OK, so here is episode #1 of the “beta” (if you will) LeanBlog Video Podcast. Our guest is our good friend Jamie Flinchbaugh. I guess I’m jumping on the video bandwagon — have you seen the new sample videos from Gemba Academy?
This is an experiment in a number of ways. Let me know what you think. Jamie and I realize that the two of us as “talking heads” isn’t necessarily the best use of video, but wanted to see how this was compared to audio only. I’m going to extract the audio and release it in the regular audio Podcast series as episode #64 for those who cannot or do not want to see video (those of you who listen on your commute). Here is a audio link for now until I get the #64 blog page and podcast feed out later.
We’re going to try to find some other uses for the video format in the future, as well, something that really takes advantage of the media.
For those who are interested, we recorded this through a Skype video chat, which I recorded on my Mac, doing a bit of editing in iMovie — basic, simple, cheap. The focus obviously is on the content, not focusing too much on slick video production. I will try setting this up on YouTube (except this is longer than 10 minutes) and possibly on a separate iTunes video podcast feed, if we repeat this experiment.
