Really excited about Tuesday's episode of The Podcast Report. Running the numbers on Podcast Sponsorships versus other revenue generators.

Is it me - or is there a direct (inverse) relation between how much someone talks about Ted Talks and how likely they are to do one?

Next week on +The Podcast Report, I'm going to chat about what I look for / long for in a conference and make a few suggestions about what I'd like to see at #PM15 (+Podcast Movement 2015).

But, what would you like to see at the event?

O.k., Podcaster history types.  Can anyone thinks of someone who just started Podcasting and 'stumbled across' a big audience just by being there? I'm not talking folk who work their butts of and got their audience online, but folk who simply started Podcasting and the listeners came flowing in because of the right keyword or something like that.  

Will be interesting to see where this one goes.

Curious too about the size of 'big audience' Paul. My only experience with this was a Mountain biking podcast that I started last year. Very little competition in that space and it gets about 2000 downloads per episode with next to no promotion work, hardly any interviews, etc. I think that was one rare case of "build it" and a reasonable audience will come, no matter what!

You walk into an event about Podcasting - it's NMX, Social Media Marketing World, Podcamp, Podast Movement, whatever, ...

The presentation that grabs your attention and gets you to run to the front of the room to take pages of notes is ... ? 

Give me your dream presentation at a Podcast Event - but base it on reality.

Tomorrow I'm going to give my review of #SMMW15 on +The Podcast Report and suggest a few things we could have learned from it.

Here's my question, which will be part of the show ...

What do you think is the biggest NEED for Podcasters right now?

Hello Paul - I think that the one thing that podcasters need most is something that will make the world more aware that we exist!  Maybe if a superhero in the next superhero movie had a podcast in the movie then everyone would go...  "Podcast?  What the heck is a podcast?"  They would then do the Google and Youtube searches and find out what they have been missing.  Then perhaps we can have the big breakthrough that we would all love to see.

One of the big themes of 2015 is going to become Podcasters taking their credit card for product sales, patron/patreon types of activities, traditional donations, premium events, etc.  Trust me on this one. 

Cash.Me just announced a 1.5% option for taking debit cards - take a look at Cash.Me/$Podcast for more information. 

Curious - do you take credit cards for anything at your site - ANYTHING - and what percentage (and fees) do you pay?

And more importantly, if someone were to bring down those fees, would you jump ship?

Thanks +J. David Stein for the kind words. In terms of this "offering" - it would have to have all of the functionality of swipe - just charge less :-).

5 years ago, I joined Ed Dale in L.A. for an iPad run. My flight was a few hours, ED CAME OVER FROM AUSTRALIA.

The PaulsiPad site is no longer, but the video is still more fun than it should be.

Thanks for the memories, Ed.

What do you think people should think about when producing an audio podcast from a video feed - ala Podcasters Roundtable, etc. (hint hint hint +Ray Ortega )  Gonna do a show on this one and will direct them to this thread for "more."

If you're using hangouts, do not trust it! I'm 7 shows in and already one show didn't process completely. Meaning, if we didn't record individual tracks and mix later I wouldn't have been able to download the audio.
