23- National Podcast Day — reflections and perspectives

This podcast episode reviews the events and activities of the 30th of September of 2014, known as NATIONAL PODCAST DAY or NPD (www.NationalPodcastDay.com). The following sections describe the activities which this Podcast Reporter attended and/or in which he participated.

National Podcast Day Proclamation

 The morning session was a live stream, hosted by Steven Lee and his son, Dave. Also among the podcast co-hosts were Daniel J. Lewis and Nick Seuberling. There was also a very active chat room which had some interesting visitors, among whom was Paul Colligan of The Podcast Report show. The main topics were discussed were the history of podcasting and some content and events discussions.

We are grateful to Steven Lee for getting this event scheduled and completed for this day about Podcasting. Our thanks go to him for this streaming event.

Toward the end of this 2-hour session, Steven Lee read the official Proclamation for National Podcast Day from his local government of Tehacapi in California.

Daniel J Lewis: Google Hangout on Podcasting

In addition to the live stream, at midday, Pacific time, Daniel J. Lewis of The Audacity to Podcast hosted a 2-hour google hangout for podcasters to gather together electronically and talk about ANYTHING PODCASTING. Questions were asked and answered, and a live chat room contained a lot of activity.

.

Dave Jackson: Podcasting Meetup in Ohio

Since Dave Jackson from The School of Podcasting is the organizer of the Cleveland Podcasters Meetup, he scheduled his session with his group in person at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time. Within a half hour, they would then be part of the Podcasters Roundtable google hangout on air.

.

Podcasters Roundtable with the National Podcast Day team

So far, for the past several “rounds” of the Podcasters Roundtable google hangout, Ray Ortega has been consistent in his schedule for this gathering of podcasters. At this round (number 36), the team of National Podcast Day was invited to be the panelists in a celebration and discussion of National Podcast Day.

.

Paul Colligan:  Free Webcast – How to Podcast

 And to close out the evening with National Podcast Day activities, Paul Colligan of The Podcast Report had an evening webcast with the theme of How to Podcast.

In addition, during the day, Paul Colligan was selling his book on www.amazon.com of THE PODCAST REPORT (episodes 1-15) for 99 cents for non-members of the special amazon.com groups. However, on 1 October 2014, Paul will make this Kindle book free.

[Note: As a matter of fact, this Podcast Reporter purchased it early in the day.]

This was a special promo by Paul to promote his podcast and monetize his ebook from his repurposed podcast episodes. We will be doing a cross-promotion with Paul and his podcast show soon in this series of PodcastReporter.com.

During the webcast, Paul focused on how a podcaster can do so for free using tools like Auphonic and a Smart Phone and some software that he uses. In fact, he published an episode of his other podcast called Thinking Out Loud in a live environment — that is, “live within live.”

.Paul then delivered some suggestions for the podcasters who submitted questions on the chat — ranging from creating your avatar when you plan your podcast to monetization strategies for revenue streams. He also described the six pillars of podcasting within his program called the Podcast Expert Blueprint. The latter is a high-cost program which he has been implementing for other audiences, but he welcomed his audience to check it out, as well.

 _________________________________________

As a result, the success of National Podcast Day was to create awareness and synergize the community of Podcasting. Steve Lee did a great job in making the Day a reality.

Now, there are many ideas resulting with suggestions for next year’s National Podcast Day — even a recommendation to have the day announced, celebrated and proclaimed in the US Government (as many communities and organizations have done, and are doing so, every day). However, that would take about 10 months of work from organizers and lobbyists in Washington to prepare, nurture, promote and complete. Although I have seen it done before in the non-profit organization environment, it required a lot of time, management, patience, negotiating and lobbying to make it happen.

If the organizers wish to have this aggressive goal reached for the Podcasting community (or, if you will, the Industry), then the work has to start about now and continue for the rest of this year and most of the next.

21- iOS8 and a Free book of THE PODCAST REPORT from Paul Colligan

This brief episode discusses information about the new iOS8 system for Apple(R) devices. It also gives details about a FREE book from Paul Colligan.

 Why iOS8 is important for Podcasters

In episode 14 (published on 16 September 2014) of Paul Colligan’s podcast show called The Podcast Report, the interview conducted with Rob Walch of Libsyn.com deals with the announcement and availability of iOS8 for Apple(R) iOS8 devices — but more important, the focus is WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR CURRENT OR ASPIRING PODCASTERS.

As you may know, the Podcast App is natively included with the iOS8 system software on iOS8 devices — and it cannot be deleted. Thus, discovery of podcasts will be easier.

There is also some hints and tips of Mobile Apps for your podcasts, as well as some caveats for artwork in iTunes, storage sizes and limitations of which podcasters may not be aware. And there is much more — we recommend that you listen to this 27-minute episode.

In addition, Paul Colligan is offering his book called The Podcast Report With Paul Colligan Transcripts – Episodes 1-15: Complete Transcripts And Mindmaps From The Podcast Report With Paul Colligan [Kindle Edition].”

The Details about the Free Book from Paul Colligan:

The information from Paul Colligan’s weekly email “news-communication” to his community is called “Heads Up Tuesday – So Much Podcasting Stuff”:

This is an odd request – but PLEASE DON’T BUY THIS BOOK!

And, may I feature your Podcast in this book? If you have learned something from The Podcast Report, please respond below with that you’ve learned, what you think of the show, and give me a link to your Podcast. The beauty of Kindle is that I can put as many of you in there as I want to.

Remember, my last Podcast book went to #1 in 7 countries, so …

Why not buy this book? On September 30, I’m going to make it available for free on ‪#‎PodcastDay‬ as part of the KDP Select program at Amazon.
