Q. What is a CanardCast?
A. CanardCast is a form of PodCast we've created to share audio interviews with and about Canard Community members, builders, fliers and enthusiasts.

Q. What is a PodCast? 
A. PodCasts are Audio stories you can listen to on your smartphone or computer using a podcast application.  Podcasts are organized into a series of audio episodes focused on a particular topic or theme, in our case Canard Aircraft Owners and Builders. You may listen to Podcast episodes with an app on your phone/computer and listen to episodes whenever you like on your headphones, in the car or through speakers.

Q. What are some Apps I can use to listen to a CanardCast?
A. There are many different Podcast Apps for iPhones, Androids and other smartphones. Here's a few popular ones:
  • Apple Podcasts
  • Spotify
  • Stitcher
  • SoundCloud
  • Google Podcasts
  • Breaker
  • Castaway 2
  • PodCruncher
  • RSSRadio
  • Castbox
Q. Is it free to listen to a CanardCast? 
A. It's free to listen to episodes and Podcast apps are also free to download and use. In fact there may be a podcast application already installed on your smartphone. It does cost some money to produce a CanardCast however. There is recording equipment purchased to support the interviews, shipping costs for that equipment and fees associated with storing and publishing internet content that supports the CanardCast Interviews.

Q. How is a CanardCast produced? 
A. Once we have an interviewee who would like to be features in an episode, we mail the recording package and instructions on how to use the equipment to the candidate. We host a series of planning meetings to tailor the interview questions and provide some training on how to use the equipment. Once the interview candidate receives the recording package, we schedule a date to record the interview. Once the interview is complete and the interviewee approves of the final recording, the equipment is sent back to Central States. The CanardCast is then edited and produced as a new Episode that gets scheduled for release in the future. Once a CanardCast is published, it will automatically appear on a distribution network called an RSS feed which means it's available on your library of Podcasts.  

Q. How can I find the CanardCast Episodes?
A. In your Podcast Application, look for a Search function. Simply type in "CanardCast" and your application should return a link to our show and provide a way to listen to any episodes we've released. 

Q. Can I make a contribution? 
A. The biggest contribution you can make is to join the Canard Owners and Builders Association. It's also possible to make an additional donation through the Anchor.FM site that hosts the CanardCast for us. 100% of your donations goes to the Canard Owners and Builders Association and dedicated to improving the CanardCast, Newsletter Magazine publication and the website. Each CanardCast Episode costs $50-$100, most of that being the recording equipment and the associated shipping costs. 

Q. Can I do an Interview? 
A. Yes! We are very interested in interviewing everyone in the canard community. There's a lot of builder stories and hanger talk stories out there and we would like to capture yours! Send your request through the Contact Us page.
