Question of the Day - Better Mixer or Better Microphone If you had enough cash to buy a good item and a fair item, which would it be? No USB microphones in this question. No "half and half" answers. What would you rather have - a good microphone or a good mixer and why?

Good mic, without question. You can tease a decent sound out of a good mic and a crappy board, but a bad mic is always going to be a bad mic, whatever you plug it in to.

As for "most people" not being able to tell the difference between microphones, that doesn't mean they're all equal.

If you use the iRig Pro or iRig HD from IKMultimedia in your podcast rig, then update your firmware. This will allow you to record in 96kHz

Question of the Day - Keeping cool What do you do to keep cool on a hot summer night when you are podcasting and you have to turn off the fans and AC because they are too loud? Ceiling fan? Frozen rag on back of neck? Bucket of fried chicken?

Join +Luke Wallace and myself tonight to talk about how stadiums and concert halls could start monitoring to improve the experience. 
 
This week we look at how you don't even need to put on a wearable to have a wearable monitor you. Imagine having a wearable in the chair you sit in? Maybe sensors in key spots you stand or walk in. Jaguar Car Company measured crowd emotions at Wimbledon using wristbands, enhancing the game.  However, putting the sensors in-park could bring a lot more data to execs - from the food you eat to the songs you hear. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Wearable Today. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Question of the Day - Browser Extensions Do  you have an extension in Chrome or Firefox that makes your podcasting easier? I use OneTab to catalog the links for the week. When I'm ready, I call up the show notes through the interface.

Evernote helps me easily save emails from Gmail into my feedback collection.

I also use Delicious, but that's via Bookmarklet, for bookmarking and tagging podcasts in which I've been interviewed. Then, I grab the RSS feed from that and embed it with my weekly email newsletter.

Also in regards to Scully helmet. I ride a motorcycle all the time and there is a such thing as too much going on. This helmet comes close and considering it has to fit your head shape and size to be safe to even use it.

Question of the Day - Using Autoplay on Your Website People come to your website to listen to the content. So shouldn't the audio/video play once they get there? If you head to bigger name websites like +TechCrunch, their videos play upon load. You're just saving people a step by hitting the play button for them. Or are you? 

Keep in mind, this only happens on the specific post page. Front pages would still be static. 

What are your thoughts about autoplay. Have you tried it?

No thanks. I don't often listen to podcasts directly on their respective websites but auto play is annoying. I often open several tabs at once but I don't always want to watch or listen to something straight away. Give me control! Haha.

Question of the Day - Social Network Podcasting What if you planned your podcast around having no website? What if it was just a Facebook or Google+ Page? But the key is you choose one platform only. That's what +Robert Scoble pretty much does. He posts all his photos, video, and main posts to #Facebook  first. 

If you used an RSS feed system like +Libsyn has, do you think your podcast might thrive better on a network like Facebook? After all, you can have the RSS posts feed into the page. You can even forward a domain to your page.

I agree with +Frank Garufi Jr.​ If these sites go away tomorrow, or even next year, your work goes along with them. The challenge of Facebook's, LinkedIn's and Twitter's (not quite yet on Twitter, but we hear rumblings about it regularly) algorithms showing your followers only a portion of your posts is also a real concern. I would always have a homebase that you own.

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.
