551- Trend toward Podcasting by New Media Content Creators

In this episode of The Podcast Reporter, we deliver a REPURPOSED EPISODE from an earlier podcast episode. This happens to have been inspired by an earlier article that I wrote and which was published in the electronic magazine, Podertainment (originally produced by Gary Leland, which had podfaded a few years ago). It had to deal with the theme of New Media Content Creators now turning to the “second renaissance” of podcasting to place their content in the growing podosphere.

In this repurposed article and episode, we emphasize the ability for New Media professionals to repurpose their content — whether from screencasting, video creation, books, pdfs, blogs, articles and other forms of New Media — into audio episodes for related podcast shows which they can create. And this may lead also to monetization and other forms of success.

We hope that you will find this repurposed audio podcast episode of value — especially since the topic is still very much evergreen in the growing area of podcasting (with over a million podcast shows now available, and nearly $2 Billion of advertising in the podosphere.

If you are an aspiring podcaster, we hope that this will provide some impetus and inspiration to plan a successful entry into podcasting and help you grow your revenue and business — and to help you meet and exceed your business objectives.

Thank you for your attention.

467- Podcaster Gary Leland and the Hall of Fame

In this episode of The Podcast Reporter, we discuss a recent post in of an article about podcaster Gary Leland, and it was written by Tracy Hazzard. The title of the article deals with five things you can do to get into the Podcaster Hall of Fame and it is “Podcast legend Gary Leland tell-all: becoming the center of influence, over and over again.”

As you will hear in this audio episode, we relate this article to the early adopter of podcasting, Gary Leland (whom we have interviewed back in 2014 at the very beginning of this show), who was also known as the Podcast Pickle, and who brought us such well-known resources like the older Podertainment magazine and his Podcast Repairman program, along with many others, such as the Crypto Podcaster.

After my introduction of Gary Leland from my past 15 years of knowing him and dealing with him as both an interviewee and podcaster and speaker in past events, I show how his views of being a successful podcaster, expert and entrepreneur in podcastng are filled with various lessons learned for new and aspiring podcasters.

One joke we had between the two of us is about the first time we met as speakers on the same program in person at the very first Podcamp event in San Antonio, Texas in 2007.  Gary was also the creator of the personality called The Podcast Pickle, which he brought to the conferences and events.

Gary Leland and the Podcast Pickle at Podcast Movement 2014

He claimed to be the oldest podcaster — until I spoke to him during the break and mentioned that I was actually six years older than he was. For me, that was a great way to relate to Gary and begin a mutual and beneficial and respectful associate in the podosphere.

We hope you enjoy this episode of a Hall-of-Fame podcaster, Gary Leland (who, by the way, was the one that had the idea to start the podcaster hall of fame within the boundaries of the Podcast Movement conferences since 2014). His skills in monetization strategies and product development have always been great at becoming a millionaire for him. And we wish him well in the future, as well.

Thank you for your attention.
