NiliPod - Our Show Notes

Nia's Blogging and Vlogging Website

Girls pulling funny facesEach time we make a podcast, we will try to be as meticulous as possible in documenting everything that we have talked about and linking to anything mentioned in the episode, including YouTube videos and newspaper articles, hopefully in the correct running order. If you think we have missed off anything important, don't just moan about it, email us so that we can put it right.

We give rough timings for each of the segments and list any of the music used, much of which is provided by the simply fantastic and incredibly talented composer, Kevin MacLeod, who is one of our favourites when it comes to background music and radio beds. His website boasts an endless amount of Royalty Free Background Music, and he is just an inspiration to the world of media and certainly to anyone wanting to make a podcast.

From time to time, we also use some great jingles made by Lino Rise at Free Intro Music from and Free Sounds Effects from, under the Creative Commons licence (where attributions are required).

We try to make the jingles that we use ourselves, using GarageBand, and we are getting better at it, but there is certainly room for improvement. When we are recording our show, we are fairly organised, with notes along the way and a soundboard loaded up with our jingles and any clips that are relevant at the time. We are trying to be as professional as we can be, without losing any of the fun of simply recording our podcast in a bedroom at the weekend.
