Welcome to Presentation skills, Q and A. I am Martin.Martin:
How are you today?Martin:
I'm doing fine.Martin:
Yes I'm doing fine, really fine.Carina:
Looking forward for this episode.Carina:
I should say last time we were talking about Visi.Martin:
Yeah and we will continue to talk a little bit more about this studio and app youMartin:
could say and that you could illustrate a podcast episode with images and then haveMartin:
different segments called chapters.Martin:
So now we are trying to paint a picture hereMartin:
for the listeners and for ourselves and also our workflow of how to create an episode of aMartin:
podcast with images that are relevant to trying out this we are testing and trying andMartin:
see what's working and so on.Martin:
So VC has for example you could now even doMartin:
your own, you could say illustrate like a YouTube video with images and then distributedMartin:
to YouTube and you have been thinking and tinkering about this.Martin:
What are images doing to your brain? You could say and imagination.Carina:
This is really interesting because our brain are full of pictures but we doesn'tCarina:
always think about it.Carina:
And this tool for podcasters visit theyCarina:
support the content in a podcast with pictures so it helps the listener to see the podcastCarina:
and the content in the Podcast and the Brain.Carina:
Our brains loves this.Carina:
You can use a picture for describe something and the brain wants to learn more when it seesCarina:
And it get the information in a good andCarina:
appropriate pace and it also opens your mind.Carina:
So it's very interesting how the brain helpsCarina:
you to learn more.Carina:
When it sees more pictures, you can say, yeah.Martin:
And then it's then the challenge, because I like audio and like podcast andMartin:
often you are listening actively and don't look so much on the screen.Martin:
But here is now if it's adding value to your listening experience with images for example,Martin:
one of the business cases Visa is like, for example, a podcast about interior design orMartin:
apartments or real estates or fashion maybe.Martin:
Could be illustrated when you're listening andMartin:
when we're talking about something specific.Martin:
And then you could watch it, but then also, ofMartin:
course, you create your own image of it.Martin:
So this is a very interesting topic, I think,Martin:
and they have one features that you could include, then a link to, for example, last.Martin:
You talked about your books.Carina:
And then you could link to your book and you could purchase your book.Martin:
So it's fascinating how you could continue your listening experience and do more duringMartin:
at the same time and then also of course, afterwards when you have listened.Carina:
And the pictures, they also helps us to compress all the information that we got.Carina:
So that's why it's also really important that when you have these pictures that is relevantCarina:
for the content, you change them now and them during the episode and the best things you canCarina:
I have learned this because I deliveredCarina:
education to one of the biggest elearning companies in Sweden called Mudoufetbeth.Carina:
There you have you learn that you should change your picture within 30 or 45 seconds.Carina:
That's the best time for the brain, the human to watch the pictures and to learn.Martin:
Then we have a picture good format.Martin:
Then around five minutes could create this.Martin:
Because then again, as I said, it's the workflow to come up with great images.Martin:
Great images or find images that you have also talked about in your courses.Martin:
How to store images and content in different ways.Carina:
But we are checking out this visit and I think it's very interesting.Carina:
But we will write this and give the links in our show notes, doesn't we?Martin:
Yes. So it's VC FM and again, go and check out the new podcast app and the newMartin:
domain for that is podcast apps.Martin:
Okay, but we put it in our show notes.Martin:
Yes, we will do that.Carina:
We'll find it and maybe also at YouTube where we also have our podcast.Martin:
Yeah, so talk to you soon again carrying out.Carina:
Well, have a nice day then.Martin:
Yeah, you too.Martin:
Have a nice weekend.Martin:
