65- For Intl Podcast Day – what about a day for New Media or Content Creation

IntlPodcastDay2015This brief BONUS episode is one to celebrate the second annual INTERNATIONAL PODCAST DAY — but it is also to reflect and ask the question about expansion of the celebration to encompass ALL New Media and/or ALL Content Creation.

Many of the podcasters today are not just podcasting alone — many are screencasting, blogging, videocasting, YouTube-ing, authoring, scoping, blabbing, etc.

The question discussed draws an analogy from 2005 of the original Portable Media Expo of the desire for a small, closed community limited to one form of content creation  and distribution — i.e., podcasting. We can relate that with the opposite desire to EXPAND the celebration and community to include the other forms of content creation and distribution in the NEW MEDIA space — i.e., New Media Expo or NMX.

This reflection tries to address the reality that many podcasters are now expanding into these other forms of New Media and they are increasing their skills and making more value of their “toolkit” that they can offer to customers and clients, as well as to the New Media Community.

Case-in-point is the podcast show that expands the topics, training, education and courses into another area of New Media:  i.e., Podcasting for Screencasters and Skills in Screencasts and Podcasts.

In any case, we wish everyone in the New Media Community a Happy International Podcast Day 2015!

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.
