In addition to being a podcaster, Dave Jackson has become a successful and beneficial CHANGE AGENT in podcasting — he is a success story, which is also the case study for this episode.
As you will hear in this audio episode, Dave Jackson (from the School of Podcasting show) did not plan or set out to be a change agent. He merely told the facts from his experience in helping other podcasters fix their situation and get away from Blog Talk Radio. He has always been vocal about the shortcomings of Blog Talk Radio, and he has been giving constructive criticism by voicing his opinion.
Instead of a confrontation, Dave was thanked by a representative from Blog Talk Radio for his constructive criticism, and now the program is on its way to being improved (of course, with Dave providing review and oversight responsibility).
As you will hear Dave in this audio interview state that not only the podcasting community wins — but everybody wins.
If you want to hear his interview with the representative from Blog Talk Radio, it is episode 422 at http://www.schoolofpodcasting.com/422. You can also look at the archives at the School of Podcasting and go to the epiosde in the March-April, 2011, time frame called “Voicing Your Opinion.”
Also, Dave shares with us his perspectives of delivering content with factual comparisons of programs, products, offerings or shows that need improvement, as well as recommendations for improvements. Political correctness should be avoided, even if to avoid “hurting someone’s feelings.” Otherwise, the podcaster who needs help may not even be aware of the problems that exist — and so how can they be fixed?
