1. Podcasting- "Gabcast"

2. Gabcast is an internet podcasting program. It provides 5 free minutes before one must purchase more minutes to use when posting your own podcasts. After you post podcasts you automatically start receiving feedback and then people will ask to subscribe to your "channel". Overall it is a way to make your own podcasts and post them to the internet. As far as what Gabcast does, by embedding a flash audio player, you can talk to friends, family and peers through the online program. Also you can record interviews, record greetings, and also you can speak your mind politically for example. This is very useful because it gives examples and has a wide variety of ways to communicate WORLDWIDE.

3. From personal experience I would consider Gabcast is user friendly. I started out learning how to navigate the site and learn what it has to offer by using the tabs along the top. The overview tab answers a lot of questions and gives examples of the Gabcast's possibilities. It also describes exactly how to get started which is HOW I learned to create Gabcast.

This is the link to my very own Gabcast -

Who Am I?

Hello, my name is Philip Metz. I am 21 years old and I have brown hair and brown eyes. I enjoy many sports but basketball is my favorite. I enjoy Italian food and am never one to say no to a free meal (ha). I played division-3 basketball my freshman year of school at the College of Mount St. Joseph. When I decided that I wanted to continue to pursue my career at IUPUI I was very sad to have to give up my passion, but it was for the best. I have never set up a blog before so this is my first time and it seems to be going smoothly so far. If I had to give any tips from passed on advice, it would be to be creative and be yourself. I have found in life that trying to be somebody who you are not never pays off in the end anyways. To live life to the fullest and never give up are to of the best pieces of advice that I have ever been given. School is always going to be a challenge but to be able to take on that challenge is one of the many opportunities in life that we as people fail to realize. I hope through reading my blog you might feel like you know a little bit more about me. Until next time, stay classy.
