362- Remote Podcast interviews using double-enders

In this episode of The Podcast Reporter, we discuss what it takes to perform a remote interview without any intervening software program.

This recording can be done with each party recording their own audio during the telephone interview, and then forwarding the audio to the person elected to do the final editing, synchronizing and creating the final mp3.

The steps are given in an informal manner during this instructional audio episode.

Referred to during this episode is the Pre-flight podcast recording checklist from Daniel J Lewis of The Audacity to Podcast.

Good luck with any double-ender remote interviews that you may implement.

361- Suggestions for listener engagement

In this episode of PodcastReporter.com, we discuss some suggestions for listener engagment. These were recently published several weeks ago at thepodcasthost.com.

Some of these suggestions are:

  • call-to-action
  • contact page
  • embedded players
  • community contact
  • surveys and polls
  • answer the calls
  • stay open

The article shows different and easy ways to make this type of engagement possible. Specific suggestions also include thanking your audience and show them that you really care — all the way from the “hook” to the “close.”

358- From passion to prison in podcasting

In this repurposed episode of podcastreporter.com ¬†from an earlier time this year, we deliver this idea of having your podcasting passion turning into a confined or “prison” for you during this virus crisis. This is a slightly edited version of prior episode 92.

So, when your podcasting becomes more of an “obligation” instead of a “passion,” how can you re-ignite your excitement of podcasting during the plandemic?

In this article that was narrated for you, there are three suggestions to turn your “prison” into “passion” once again — for the podcaster and other entrepreneurs.

357- Another course — how to start a podcast in 2020

In this brief and repurposed episode of The Podcast Reporter, we discuss the announcement and availability of yet another course that teaches the student about podcasting in the “how-to” arena. It is called How to Start a Podcast.

And the announcement of this program is in an article within the Podcast Business Journal.

So, it is that time of the year again for another course that traces the same roads over and over again. And once again, we recommend the book by Dave Jackson called More Podcast money, as well as the collaborative mentorship from Daniel J Lewis in his Podcasters Society membership site.

So, in the meantime, we thank you for your attention.

353- Podcast speakers — credibility and credentials

In this episode of PodcastReporter.com, we deliver some perspectives of being able to judge the value of those chosen to be speakers or keynotes at podcast conferences — whether they are virtual or in-person or inbound events.

Track records, validity and credentials deliver TRUST and valid proof of the content for these speakers.

A quote from Evo Terra and his Podcast Pontifications show hits the nail on the head — “the speakers may not be the experts that they promote themselves to be.” The danger is misinformation and sometimes incorrect data.

Remember: ¬†“only the phoney” may have the disguise of phoniness or fraud. And your critical thinking and deconstruction of the content may be your salvation from being subject to the wrong info that will contain no value for you.

352- Increased podcasts due to virus crisis

In this episode of PodcastReporter.com, we discuss the increase and growth of podcasting during the crisis of the Chinese Wuhan Virus (aka covid-19 or corona virus).

From this repurposed episode from March of 2020, we noticed the surge of new podcast shows being created, as well as the amount of new episodes being published.

This discussion is timely and attests to the situation that stared all of us podcasters in the face during the period of March, 2020.

349- Possible future of podcasting and big money

This episode of PodcastReporter.com focuses on the theme that the podosphere and podcasting may be under the strength of big money, as the latter will try to steer the podcasting platform away from a level playing field — and thus, control the podosphere.

This topic set afire a storm of frustration and resentment from the keynote address by Hernan Lopez of Wondery at the recent Podcast Movement 2020 conference in Los Angeles.

As you will hear in this brief audio episode, a keynote speaker who knows not his audience and is not aware of awards that have been going on for 15 years in the podosphere may have lost his credibility.

So the argument continues from the hobbyist podcasters and indie podcasters that the playing field must remain level (as professed by Todd Cochrane in his New Media Show podcast), and that these “johnny-come-lately media with money” should not decide on the direction and gatekeeping of the podosphere.

344- Repurpose podcast content into published articles

In this episode of PodcastReporter.com, we discuss the strategy of repurposing your podcast audio content into published articles as a matter or re-using or repurposing your content from one medium to another.

The tool for doing this is highlighted by Podreacher. This would be especially attractive for the podcaster that does not have the time (or want to spend the time) to create transcripts or show notes, etc. The solution specified contains resources like copywriters that will create the published text that will do justice to your audio content.

Thank you for your attention.

343- Yet another podcast training program — StartAPod

In this episode of The Podcast Reporter, we deliver information about StartAPod — which is yet another podcast training course that shows you, as an aspiring or beginning podcaster, how to launch a podcast show.

This was discussed several weeks ago in an article of the Podcast Business Journal publication. The lessons and the “coming soon” modules are described from this repurposed episode from several weeks ago within this same podcast show.

The main themes are:

  • learn
  • share
  • earn

The goals are many and the vision certainly sounds as if they will, indeed, help aspiring podcasters.

However, my recommendations stay with Dave Jackson and his programs in The School of Podcasting — of which I have been a member and I have seen the value in his 15 years of programs in the podosphere.

Thank you for your attention.

342- Podcast birthday and a journey in podcasting by a luminary

In this episode of The Podcast Reporter, we discuss the anniversary of a birthday in podcasting, as well as the journey into podcasting which we describe.

The birthday which we discuss is that of the first podcast show and podcast episode from this podcast reporter (from 2006).

As you will hear in this audio episode, the learning curve for podcasting was helped by the book by Evo Terra and Tee Morris called Podcasting for Dummies. This book was a good start, but the online tutorial by Jason Van Orden called How to Create a Podcast was the final resource that helped me to create my first podcast called Arriba!

And finally, mentorship and instruction from Dave Jackson in his School of Podcasting allowed me to grow and attend podcast conferences — especially meeting Paul Colligan, Leo LaPorte, Tee Morris and Jason Van Orden.

And the final part of this audio episode describes the swift journey that resulted in myself growing into being a luminary (as referred to by Paul Colligan).
