BABY MOUNTAIN RADIO PRODUCTIONS
The Home of
Caregiving For Dementia.
Hello, my name is Michael Delaney Sr.I started this podcast because I wanted some way of telling my story of living with someone with dementia for about 2 years. I really thought about starting a radio station, ever since I saw the movie Pump Up the Volume with Christian Slater.
In short, I thought that it would be so cool to talk to other people about anything that comes to mind, but I didn’t just want to talk all the time. I thought with a radio station I could at least play some music part of the time, so I wouldn’t have to talk a lot.
While researching how to start a radio station, it became apparent to me that it was way too expensive to even think about after all the royalties you had to pay. I mean, I needed about 6 licenses just to play the music for one, and then all the paperwork you had to keep up with in order to play the music. So I decided that a radio station was way too expensive. But while researching the radio station I came across a thing called podcasting.
So, you guessed it. I started researching podcasting. Come to find out podcasting is sort of like a radio station without all of the licenses and the royalties and all that. But with that said, without all the licenses I could no longer play the music, so I had to talk a lot. So I started researching what a podcast was and how to do it. The more I dug into podcasting, the more I thought this was my replacement to a radio station. I came across the name of Cliff Ravenscraft The Podcast Answer Man, so I started listening to his podcast because I thought maybe he’s teaching people what a podcast is and how to do it. Sure enough, that’s exactly what he was doing.
And the rest of the story is history. Baby Mountain Radio Productions is the home of my podcast called, Caregiving For Dementia. With Hopes of adding more podcasts soon.
A Dementia Roller Coaster Ride
Episode # 49
The 1st 11 minutes of this episode is about new equipment that I had to buy for the podcast. In this 1st 11 minutes, I talk about a Sony digital recorder as well as the Logitech C920 webcam. Also in these 1st 11 minutes, I mentioned 3 podcasters that I listen to and get excellent advice from.
The 1st podcaster that I mentioned in this episode is Cliff Ravenscraft from the Cliff Ravenscraft show and you can find his show at https://www.cliffravenscraft.com Cliff was the 1st podcaster I listen to. Cliff said don’t record into software for your podcast. Every time I did an episode I keep hearing him say that. Then I thought to myself, it’s possible that it was Daniel J Lewis from the audacity to podcast, you could find his show at https://www.theaudacitytopodcast.com.You see, this is how podcasting works you start listening to one podcaster and you run on to another podcaster in the show that you listen to. That’s how I ran on to Daniel J Lewis through Cliff’s podcast. I ran on to the 3rd and final podcaster that I’ll mention here and that is, Dave Jackson from the school podcasting. You can find his show at http://www.schoolofpodcasting.com.
The rest of my show I talk a little bit about Mama waking up in the middle of the night and being absolutely terrified, she was so terrified that she woke up the boy who is very hard to wake up in the middle of the night. I also talk about mom not eating the way she should. And she’s losing weight because of it. We also needed to buy Mama a sippy cup. I talk a little bit about the reason why we bought our sippy cup, what she did with the sippy cup, and so on.
I also talk a little bit about being able or unable to give mom her medication at times. And that creates a problem all in its own because we have a German Shepherd mix and it wouldn’t be good for the dog to find any of mamas medication that for some reason or another would end up on the floor. We also discussed mom still playing with the blankets on the bed for one reason or another. All this and more on this episode of caregiving for dementia.
