Question of the Day - Do You Know Where they Listen? I am in San Francisco for the week and to go from airport to hotel, you most likely would take the #BART . That is what I did this time. As I was sitting there, I watched swarms of people with headphones in - not knowing what they were listening to. Podcasts or music? 

It got me thinking to when I was in New York last and saw the same thing. I started pondering how these markets consume podcasts. Would they be content to start a show when they walk out the door, getting to the end when they reach their regular destination? 

So with that I pose to you this question: do you regularly poll your listeners how they listen, or check your stats and adjust on time?

I just got a comment on a help video I put out a while back. This person has seen fame and has been podcasting for a while now. We've talked a couple times online, but never met him in person.

Basically, he thanked me for the video and my tips helped him. It made me smile that I could help a person I saw on TV for years with his content creation. Also shows that the web lets you do things you'd never expect...

Question of the Day - Podcast Books  What was the last book or ebook that you read on podcasting? Is there a part of podcasting out there where you haven't seen via book?

I've not read any books or e-books about podcasting. I tried reading one (e-book), but it seemed more about name-dropping than actual content, so I stopped reading.

I find that I'm able to get what I want from this community and YouTube videos. I WOULD read a book about the history of podcasting and the changes over the years after a couple more years of podcasting. I find the timelines fascinating -- that leap from pure hobbiests to marketers/self-helpers kind of becoming the big names, and now seeing them in a bubble as truly known names begin podcasting.

Question of the Day - Podcast Promos A 30 second promo can be placed in any podcast. A promo section on your website would allow anyone to download and use with a CC noderivitive license. For video, my promo is actually on my YouTube page. Do you have a promo area and if so, where is it? Link us up!

Well placed discussion...I was going to start a thread asking about reviews of each others podcasts (personal for feedback, not itunes) as it's something I mentioned in the episode I published today. It's a bit skewed from this topic so I'll create another thread, however the supportive nature of the discussion here is encouraging

Question of the Day - Hangout Quality Do you do podcasts via Google Hangout? I haven't been keen on the hangout quality, but last night we recorded +Wearable Today and there must have been some major problems. at least 15 minutes of the show was gone, but in bits and pieces throughout the show.

1 in 50 shows that I know of. 

So with that, do you use Hangouts to podcast? What are your thoughts on the quality? Would you still put out the show if it was missing small parts? 

+Ray Ortega - would you re-do your Podcaster Roundtable if you realized hangouts did this?

Interesting question. I wouldn't redo it because I record a higher quality version of the audio and put that into the audio only podcast feed. I'd have to just eat it as far as YouTube goes.

I did a couple microphone comparisons in the past. Many of you asked for more. +Sennheiser sent me the MD 46 to test out. Here is the comparison between that, and the #AudioTechnica  AT8004L

One of my favorite spots to get work done. Great food (Sonoma Chicken Sandwich is one of my favs), many choices of coffee and tea. Yola's is also active in Social Media Breakfast, so it's a destination to meet with clients and interact. WiFi is free and a little more secure than the others around Madison. Staff is friendly and will help you if you need it. Walk up and say hi to Lance and Lisa.

Awesome pizza, and many good extras! If you want a specialty pizza like the Margarita, Chicken Alfredo, etc. They are the place to go. If you order online, the system is a little buggy. I had to restart my pizza order a couple times. There was no way to delete the order otherwise.

I enjoy AJ Bombers burgers whenever I can. They have some great twists on the craft of making a hamburger, and their other sandwiches are pretty tasty, too. Need some peanuts? Their bombers can get you a bowlfull in a jiffy. And they're a lot of fun to watch.
