Here's what I want to do and would appreciate any help.

I do most if not all of my consumption of audio via podcast.

I'm also a crazy learner and often purchase courses on tons of stuff.

What keeps me from finishing said courses is that I have to manually log into secure websites, download audio/video/pdf files, transfer these files to the cloud, so I can access OR I have to log into the website using my mobile device and consume that way.
This is ANNOYING. And in all honesty I just don't have time for that.

The problem that I want solved:

I want to be able to download all files from the course (usually they provide a zip file to do so), upload them to dropbox. Create a podcast RSS feed - using Feeder - and subscribe to my make-shift podcast via my podcatcher of choice FOR MY OWN PERSONAL CONSUMPTION.

I've tried to do this using Feeder. I think that it can be done, BUT I think it has to be somehow connected to a website? or not?

I found this tutorial but there are some parts that I feel I'm missing and I don't know how to get them. I'm not a Feeder user but have owned Feeder for many years:

How to Create Course Podcast Feed Using Feeder

Am I wrong?

Is someone well versed on using Feeder that can help me create super simple podcast RSS feeds NOT CONNECTED TO A WEBSITE?????

Does this make sense?

I also wanted to create a podcast for my family that had to do with our family's moving - only for our immediate family, that is not connected to a website, just audio files - would essentially be the same thing.

Help please?

Love it when podcasters take action.

Good stuff UK Podcasters!
 
We've been instigating a little bit of conversation about building community as podcasters, not with our audiences but really with each other.

Check out what the UK Podcaster community is doing

Good stuff don't you think?

Do you feel that we as a community need to take responsibility for our own growth AS a community?

I'm looking for an iPhone RSS reader that has the ability to share to G+. Does that even exist?

Have any if you hacked some sort of workflow for posting to G+ without being in G+?

This is not to spam or to not engage, it's just that my lifestyle currently doesn't allow for the luxury of opening and closing apps. Crazy right? #mamaproblems

I currently use Reeder for iPhone and Mr Reader on the iPad.

I'm rarely on my iPad so something for iPhone would be killer :)

thanks in advance!

Hi +Elsie Escobar you can take a look at Friends + Me https://friendsplus.me/ I'm not sure if it works on mobile but it's the only site I know that lets you cross publish to G+ so you might be able to fit it in your workflow somehow. 
I don't actually use it because I hated seeing the same thing I post on Facebook showing up on G+ or vice versa, but it might come in handy for what you're doing. Let me know.

I'm looking for a Google+/Google expert.

I was a very early adopter of G+ and because of that the email address attached to my profile is not the one that I want to grow and build on - it's one of the main reasons I don't do much in G+.

I want to switch to another email address as my main Google account without loosing my circles/posts/etc.

Has anyone successfully transitioned from a gmail address to a google apps account as their main account?

I'm not looking for how to use G+. I'm specifically looking for help with my main profile now which is connected to my YouTube channel, photos and all that jazz to be connected to my google apps email address NOT my current personal email account. 

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, people, communities, blogs, tutorials, etc!

+MaAnna Stephenson had a similar issue and for awhile there she was helping people to sort things out. She mentioned in one of her recent podcasts episodes that she doesn't provide the service anymore. Maybe she can shed some light on this topic.

I've just found a little truffle of heaven on earth via @AlterEcoSF

Just introduced to these lovely Dark Black Truffles from Alter Eco. O.M.G. Inhaled 2 in NOTIME.

All around killer product. It makes delighting in chocolate an even more blissful experience!

▸ Compostable wrappers - holla!
▸ The yummy inside - COCONUT OIL mixed with cocoa!
▸ 7 INGREDIENTS! Cane sugar, cacao beans, coconut oil, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, caramel flavor, vanilla beans
▸ Socially just, reliably delicious + environmentally responsible = awesome

Companies like this make me insanely #happy.

Wanna celebrate Earth Day in a way that is actually relevant AND can shift our relationship with the earth plus with ourselves?

It's gonna take some participation on your end though!

My friend Cate Stillman has made it super easy for you. Just download, and print her little tips and put them somewhere in your kitchen (fridge.) Keep reading it, and at some point you'll take another action...

To those of you that are already on it, I'm sure when you read her tips you'll get even more fired up!

Number 11 is one of my favorites.

This is what's gonna change the world. It really is up to us, there's no quick answer, and it necessitates a much deeper relationship with our environment than we are used to

Hi guys!

I would love your help with something 

I keep finding that most folks that I work with, have a big problem loving their voice. 

I get them all prepped up to do their podcasts (audio products or campaigns), give them all the tools and set up that they need, help them iron out their message, make it crystal clear, develop the most organic way for them to go about it and then....

"I hate the sound of my own voice"

Project halts. 

< insert cute deflating sound >

Self doubt sets in.

I'm done with it...I'm creating a simple resource for EVERYONE that needs it for getting over the whole hate your own voice business. 

I would love to highlight audio creators that have had this be an issue and how you got over it. 

I'm going to start this as a series of blog posts on my website, and eventually create a free multimedia resource for people to snag if they want. 

Everyone will of course get link back to their stuff (duh!)

If you have any experience hating the sound of your own voice and developing ways that you got over it, I REALLY want to hear from you!

If you are up for it, you can email me audio-feedback to elsie@yogeek.me or leave me a message at http://speakpipe.com/elsie or you can email me some text :) 

OR, you can just leave a comment here, with your permission to use your experience. 

I know so many amazing people that are creative, powerful and incredibly intelligent that are letting the voice thing get in the way...That ego can really get in the way of greatness!

Super appreciate your support!

(✿◠‿◠)

Try having a conversation with your clients that might sound something like this:

You say that you don't like the sound of your voice, but let me ask you this: How often do you talk on the telephone? Do you call your friends, or loved ones frequently? Do you ever call a company to complain about service, ask for a refund or give them feedback about their product or service? Of course the answer will be YES.
Then just "pretend" that you are talking on the phone to one of your friends. Or even on a conference call at work or something similar. 

This might make your clients feel more relaxed because I'm guessing that the real problem for many of them is that they are afraid of the microphone. The word microphone just sounds so much like the word "microscope" and they might feel that all of the flaws in their voice will be enhanced. 

Hope that helps in some way!
