8 Podcast production Some experience : –Live recording convenient but produces long clips –Editing effort could be large –Scripted recording depends on the language skill and (subject knowledge) of the narrator –Clips should be limited to 10 minutes or less TDG Project No PI: Dr Chan Mang-tang (CS) TDG Sharing Session - Podcast
