97- Podcast 2030 show interview and Details of Adam Curry

In  the last episode, I paid thanks to those with whom I had great relationships in the area of podcasting. However, one key person who influenced me greatly was not mentioned. The reason was that this individual deserved an entire episode for me to thank him immensely.

This post is a tribute to Adam C. Curry, known better in the podosphere as the PODFATHER.

The last time that I saw Adam and spoke to him briefly was in person at the 2015 New Media Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. But my last one-on-one  meeting in person (for 4 hours and lunch) with Adam Curry was in Austin on 5 February 2014. I had also chatted with him in several of his previous Meetups in Austin, as well as discussions with him and fellow podcaster, Todd Cochrane, in Austin.

Now, I would like to pay a tribute to Adam for his contributions to the podcast community and industry, as well as for the value that he has delivered to myself and many other podcasters after the publication of his show, NO AGENDA at www.noagendashow.com, after its 1000th episode — a true milestone of longevity.

Adam has provided over 1000 episodes of his podcast show with his co-host, John C Dvorak. The thousandth episode was produced and published on 18 January 2018.

Besides having been one of the first honorees to be inducted in the Podcasters Hall of Fame at Podcast Movement in 2015, Adam has received international praise and recognition. On December 29, 2017, the Dutch broadcaster AvroTros announced that the 2017 ‘Marconi Oeuvre Award’ will be given to Adam Curry.

As you may be aware, Adam’s creativity is constantly working on new ideas with an enthusiasm that is positively catching.

Case in point: in 2014, Adam had discussed a topic about the upcoming events of the year 2030 and why that should be of concern to us, as well as its own importance. As a matter of fact, I had started a podcast show about the 2030 topic, and I had recorded in February of 2014 the first episode of that podcast show. However, the podcast show never did launch, as the enthusiastic idea was drowned in all the other events, occurrences and topics of 2014. 

However, the link below will take you to the interview with Adam Curry that was slated to be the first episode:

96- A tribute to the “Podfather”-Adam Curry

40- Adam Curry discusses podcast quality and New Media

This is repurposed content from the inaugural episode of Skills in Screencasts and Podcasts, and it delivers an interview with the “Podfather,” Adam Curry, who discusses New Media importance in the areas of podcasting and screencasting.

Adam Curry on wikipedia.org

This interview was conducted at the downtown Austin Hilton Hotel, where the noise was at a high level, but we found the quietest place to be in the business office just off the lobby. We apologize for the background noise and ambient sounds.

Around 2011, there was a movement from the New Media community of content creators to try to get bloggers to add Podcasting to their skills and join the podcasting community — mainly to grow their audience and add another channel for their content.

In 2014, the current movement is to try to get the podcasters to add screencasting to their skill-set — and vice-versa, get screencasters to add podcasting to their skills portfolio. The idea is to grow their audience and increase the possibilities of monetization, generate additional revenue streams and exploit new channels for content distribution.

As you will hear in this audio episode, Adam Curry discusses the models for podcasters and screencasters, as well as quality in the production of New Media content.

About Adam Curry:

Born in 1964, he is “on the cusp” of the Baby Boomer range, and is one of the “last of the official Baby-Boomers.” He also has had a history of financial success in making millions, then spending them all, and then finally of being an Entrepreneur that found happiness by living his passion as a “Government Legislation Analyst” in his latest business of podcasting with his show of No Agenda.

After over 7 years of building a loyal audience, he  has proven that the road to his full-time Entrepreneurship is with the business model which he has proven successful — known as the VALUE-FOR-VALUE model.

But to many others in the New Media arena, Adam Curry is also known as the “Pod-Father” —  since he and Dave Winer created the ability to implement successful podcasting. It was this breakthrough that allowed him to explore audio podcasting and create a show that still has a tremendous worldwide following of loyal listeners (known by Adam as “producers” — like the ones in the Hollywood model of entertainment).

This came after a career with MTV and broadcasting. His media experience saw him as part of Mevio.com, (previously known as Podshow) with different podcasts that he also started (like the Daily Source Code).

However, almost seven years ago, he started his flagship podcast show called NO AGENDA with his co-host, columnist John C. Dvorak. As an entrepreneur, he has developed the format and content of the show.

You will notice that Adam Curry has several “firsts” in his success as a full-time podcaster-entrepreneur:

(1) He provides docoumented deconstruction, information of value and entertainment;

(2) He created his own position and title as a Government Legislation Analyst. Yes, he actually READS, analyzes and deciphers each governmental bill, proclamation, executive order, and United Nations document–and he even highlights the pertinent sections that can provide you, the listener, with critical thinking and and intelligent basis for making decisions and being well-informed. The documents and other valuable information are part of his extraordinary show notes, which are free to the listener from his podcast web site.

(3) He has proven that his business model of VALUE-FOR-VALUE can be a successful one (and so far, a sustainable one) by building a loyal audience and receiving willing donations for the value that the audience receives.
