Welcome to part 2 of 2 of the Mark in Russia interview with Nick Dunkerley of Hindenburg Systems and co-creator of the audio editor, Hindenburg Journalist. This is a program designed for journalists, but journalists and the simplicity of use masks the fact that a great deal of power and flexibility lie under its hood.
In today’s part of the interview Nick discusses the use of audio in education, the future of the audio medium and enhanced podcasts. The facts which must be reconciled concerning who the real competitors with private podcasters are and what can be done to ensure their survival (“their” being private podcasters). He also explains the policies of Hindenburg regarding updates, upgrades, documentation and training.
Any and all podcasters should follow some of the links listed below. These are links which take you to our competitors and also showing some of the future technologies all ready starting to enter our lives. I know that I can certainly learn a lot about editing and production by listening to many of these podcasts.
Some links to subject which we discussed:
“Uber Audio” with the popcorn.js HTML5 open source player: http://hyper-audio.org/r/ (this will bring you to an amazing demonstration showing the capabilities of this new open-source HTML5 audio player.)
Transom.org, A showcase and workshop for new Public Radio: www.transom.org You really need to check out their podcasts, as a minimum for the ways in which they are produced.
Radio Lab. You need to watch these guys because they are the new style of podcasts that you will be competing against. Besides, they are really good: http://www.radiolab.org
Hindenburg Systems: http://www.hindenburgsystems.com

I hope to bring you more interviews and information from this great new company and it’s nice that at least one audio company has journalists and podcasters especially in mind.
