369- Podcasting during a pandemic

In this episode of The Podcast Reporter, we discuss the environment for the podcaster during a current epidemic (actually, a “plandemic”) in the early months of 2020, as we can plan to “podcast our way through the virus crisis.”

We refer to Evo Terra at PodcastPontifications, as well as another podcasters for suggestions.

The new habits and processes are described for podcasters who have to do remote interviews (with either software or using double-enders). This would include new strategies and spending more time in the consumption of podcast content.

Examples for me are the NoAgendaShow.com podcast, with Adam Curry and John C Dvorak.

Regardless of your situation, we hope that you can do the best podcasting (both listening and creating) during these times that “try men’s souls.”

Thank you for your attention.

368- Interview with Daniel J Lewis

In this episode, we take the time for a good interview with Daniel J Lewis of The Audacity to Podcast. Daniel is also known as an award-winning podcasters since 2010, and he is the founder of Podcasters Society (a membership site that I have called a “collaborative mentorship”). And he also has some other products that he has created and is selling from his web site, like SEO for podcasters, My podcast reviews, ZoomH6 for Podcasters, Social Subscribe and Follow, Podcast Statistics, etc.

It may seem a bit lengthy, but having known Daniel since 2010 (when I first interviewed him in my then-flagship podcast of The Struggling Entrepreneur), we had some catching up to do in this update about his role in the podosphere and the future of his offerings.

We thank Daniel and wish him the best in delivering value to his audiences with his podcasts, his offerings, his products and his content.

Thank you for your attention.

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.

Thank you for your attention.

  • answer the calls
  • stay open

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.

Thank you for your attention.

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.

Thank you for your attention.
