If you signed up for tonight's Tablet Podcasting Webinar with Mike Stewart, please know that he's in the hospital right now and won't be holding the event (obviously).

I don't have access to his gotowebinar account - where the reminders are coming from - thanks for understanding ...

So, the Ringr app - http://www.ringr.us/ - Met the CEO at Podcast Movement and told him about a little problem I had. He said email him with specifics - haven't heard back yet.  

Anyone else using this successfully?

Informal unscientific survey alert ... Would love your why/why nots - but is anyone here going to send them $5 a month? 

So, Gimlet and their last episode of Startup - they no are letting you "join" Gimlet for $5 a month. 

First of all FANTASTIC EPISODE if you haven't listened yet - all sort of numbers given - Listen if you haven't already - https://gimletmedia.com/episode/bonus-but-wait-theres-more/

Secondly - Gimlet Membership $5/Month - Who's in?  https://gimletmedia.com/2015/07/announcing-gimlet-membership/

+Paul Colligan Nope. Advertising seems like a good enough source of revenue for them. They aren't really struggling. They aren't a good model for anyone else in space. They are what people now call a 'unicorn'.
I have given fairly large donations to podcast that provide tons of value and have no other source of income.

So, +Fred Castaneda tried to send me a check a few months back because he wanted to join my Patreon Community - but didn't want to deal with Patreon and Paypal. This sends us all down a fascinating path of the customer always being right but scale and paperwork being scale and paperwork.  

So, I'm curious - for any other Podcast consumers and people who buy things from Podcasters (Patreon memberships, t-shirts, digital upgrades, etc.). What are the systems you simply won't work with - and why?

I suspect bitcoins will become a big player in the donation/micropayment front.  It is still a bit hard for people to buy them quickly, but then can pay you directly and instantly with no cut taken by a middleman if you publish a bitcoin address for people to send to.  Here is an example using http://changetip.com +ChangeTip, send $2!

Podcast Movement - Still Wrapping My Mind Around It 

And, of course, my mind could be (and usually is) the problem ... 

Help me understand (and anyone reading this) your thoughts on Podcast Movement.  What's the NUMBER 1 THING you are looking forward to seeing or doing?  I'll add my #1 as a comment below.

I don't get to go to these things.  I can barely afford the Fun Sized Libsyn sub for my podcast.  But I feel strongly that podcasting hasn't reached the stage of "we've always done it this way" yet.

Podcasting is still a performing art, primarily.  A podcast doesn't need to sound like NPR, and doesn't need to sound like morning drivetime.  An' t'were me, I'd be looking to hear new ways people are using this performance medium.  Even about some ways that have gone horribly wrong.  ;-)

Some manage to make money with their performances.  Lovely for them.  But a conference on how to make money podcasting, is like a conference on how to make money painting.  Podcasts needn't be "couch-sized."

Maybe 16 people at the most.
 
So I'm hoping to have a small meetup Saturday morning for breakfast during Podcast Movement. Anyone know the area well enough to recommend a good place within walking distance of the hotel?
