This episode is being repurposed and re-syndicated from an earlier interview with Daniel J Lewis of The Audacity to Podcast show, in which we discussed podcaster courtesy in bumpers and interviews — along with tips for improving your audio quality via mp3 encoding.
Reason? The problem of courtesy among podcasters has grown quickly, due to the nature of the pressure —
a) to get into NEW AND NOTEWORTHY in iTunes(R) (yes, it still persists today, due to the myth started in 2013);
b) to see other podcasters as “competition” and try to outdo them in getting the exposure, links, audience awareness, etc. instead of others;
c) to be discourteous due to monetization goals for either download cpm revenue or product promotion, etc.
In any case, the hesitation (or just downright REFUSAL) of reciprocity for giving bumpers, interviews or other types of courteous acts has grown significantly in a tense atmosphere of competition and the race for monetization.
Well, it could be that there are so many podcast shows today that are being recognized and created. And receiving the links and awareness and exposure seems to be the holy grail for podcasters.
So, we have decided to repurpose an earlier episode interview with Daniel J Lewis, host of The Audacity to Podcast, in which we discuss this issue with some caveats to the aspiring or new podcasters, as well as other screencasters who are getting into the podcasting space today.
