The Phrasebase Podcast: Hi all,

I'm just curious, who is interested in making a podcast series? (Not by ourselves, but as a community.)

If so, here's my proposal:

Every week (or every two weeks), one of our PB members, will produce two podcasts.

One podcast in English and one podcast in his/her native language (if his/her native is already English, he/she could try to produce one in his/her target language if he/she feels CONFIDENT in, OR another language that he is fluent in).

Like most podcasts, it's an average of 5-10 mins (maybe longer). So, if you can, try to produce on around 10 mins.

What should topics/content should be in our podcasts?

Anything you want. As long as it isn't R rated or anything like that. :p

Well, I recommend topics about your country, culture or maybe even small language lessons in your podcast.

Then, one podcast will be released by one completely different PB member (who hasn't made any episodes yet) every one or two weeks. This one to two weeks will give time to next person who is presenting, to plan and create their own episode.

In creating these podcasts, I hope that through this, we could get the chance to HEAR other PB members, especially those natives ;) to speak their native languages with great fluency! :D

Also, these could help us build our confidence in speaking if you are shy and all.

So, if you are interested. All you need is a mic and just send me a PM or drop me a message here!

Hope you guys like the idea :p

Well, I was kinda thinking about starting EgyPod, a free podcast for teaching Egyptian Arabic, so maybe this PB podcast would be a good training for me :D

I'm totally with this idea, and I recommend it to be a daily podcast, but as cycles, for example, 14 members will participate in it, so the cycle would be every 2 weeks, each member takes a day, so he makes his podcast on a fixed day every 2 weeks, and so on, I could participate in Arabic, English and French for now, maybe later on I'd try a Japanese/Mandarin approach :)

So, I'm in! :p
