Very happy today our beekeeping podcast has been featured in new and noteworthy in iTunes (New Zealand Store). We have been doing the podcast for two years so that must mean we are noteworthy 😄 http://Kiwimana.co.NZ/podcast

That's a great unit for the price +Jeffrey Powers , congrats! I think that Jeff Town at Transom.org is one of the best audio guys and this is his new favorite prosumer grade recorder. I have the Tascam DR100 MKII, which is comparable in terms of the great pres, but if I didn't, I would certainly buy this unit, especially at the price it is going for lately.

The end of mix minus is nigh (I think).  Saw this video.  Honestly, I can't tell from what he is saying whether the caller and the guest only hear themselves though they would have to in order to make it work.  Regardless, innovation is moving toward making mix minus obsolete ( at least with multiple PCs and a physical mixer).  That is worth celebrating.

Who's using a Paid Premium Content model to generate revenue? For example, making extra audio content or white papers available or purchase through your app or website, or giving access to premium content with a subscription? Any insights? We're looking to launch this model later this year.

Also, if you want to point me to any great podcast episodes around this revenue model, I'd love to listen. Thanks!

+Andrew Hellmich The Libsyn App is Free to the End users when you do premium.  If you are looking to grow a subscription offering as in the number of people signing up - it is important to have the App free - with your free content and premium content mixed - so the non-subscribers can see the premium content they are missing out on.

Cliff suggested I check this group for a video podcaster for answers to my 2 questions.  

1. When Blip.TV quit feeding iTunes, my Podcast, Big Cat Rescue, lost all of the episodes.  I had great ratings and reviews and want to keep them.  How can I change the feed for this Podcast https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/uploads-by-big-cat-rescue/id284875889?mt=2 to my new feed ?

2.  What is the best way to create a feed of my videos for iTunes so that I don't end up losing all of my past episodes when the vender decides to change their business model?

Question of the day Do you do ID3 tags anymore? Do you put cover art on the MP3?

I do  both.  I also just noticed that if I click on artwork when playing podcasts on my iPad that show notes come up.  +Daniel J. Lewis  does an amazing job with his and has inspired me to do a better job with mine on my next show!

Hi folks. I'm getting ready to do some live reporting from a concert as well as recording lots of audio for my podcast.
I want to include an Instagram widget in my self-hosted WordPress site but all the ones I have used are broken or don't update quickly enough. Anyone have a great experience with Instagram on their own wordpress site?
Thanks!

Hi, here is our 200th episode. We've be at it for 3 years now and primarily focus on Film/TV.  Each episode usually has someone who is either an actor/director/writer or has something to do with the Horror Genre. Horror is always first,but we cover everything.

I see a lot of people on this forum use Audacity for editing. However I haven't seen much about Logic Pro X for podcasting. Any using it? Opinions of it for this purpose?

+Dan Powers it's worth you looking at Sound Forge. It comes with some really powerful tools to help produce broadcast quality audio.

Introduce yourself, your Podcast  - 
 
I'm Jason Bryant and I've been a professional broadcast journalist for 18 years. I've specialized in sports, but most of my coverage centers around wrestling, Olympic, College and High School wrestling. I've covered World Championships, Olympic Games and dozens of national championships. I run a podcast called the "Short Time Wrestling Podcast," which does semi-nightly updates during the college season and in the off-season, an interview series. I also work with the On The Mat radio program out of Cedar Falls, Iowa and their one-hour show is part of our podcast network. I've been reading some of the contributors here regularly and they've all helped in getting my podcast crisper, cleaner and easier to produce. If you want to define "niche," ... at least in the sports world, that's what I've got.

You know the way that in vidcasts people often look down because they are trying to read their notes or see the guest they are talking too.  I came across a sort of autocue/teleprompter by a firm called Bodelin today. I immediately tried to see if there was a way of getting it (UK) but the companies own website had errors and Amazon says it doesn`t know when any future products will come in. It's a brilliant idea though. Has no one else done something like this? I've rigged up small panes of glass before but that is very cumbersome compared to something that (looks at least) as simple as this? Any other products out there or any other suggestions beyond "remember to look up"?

Which of their items are you looking at? The mobile prompter, the ipad brackets, or their prompter software (remote capabilities)? I sometimes use an app called PromptWare Plus for other projects, but just like with prompters in general...it works best when you have someone else controlling it.

Topic of the Day Business Account Posting on Podcasters - Should we allow it?

Ever since I started this community there was the rule you must post as a real-name account. The theory is simple: Google's policy was you must provide your real name on a standard profile so I did the same.

I have also disallowed business profiles to post. This was to:
A. avoid "Gun and Run" posts and
B. make sure its one person posting which could account for who posted it (since a business can have multiple managers to the account)
 - We have already had business accounts spam the site. When I talk with the profile, they didn't know who posted the spam. 

I am thinking about relaxing the rule a bit for business profiles because of people like +Polite Society Podcast and +La Mansion del Ingles who actually contribute to the site. They should also be able to ask questions, right?

Keep in mind Google still has a real name policy. Your profile could still be suspended for not following that. 

Thoughts? I would still want you to post using your real-name account over any business account because you will get more engagement that way.

Agreed +Daniel J. Lewis . Accounts rarely get banned unless they have proven to be a spammer.

Wordpress Plugin Updates.  To do or not to do.

I'm a little apprehensive to update my WordPress plugins (especially PowerPress) and was wondering if there is a some sort of protocol i should follow.

update ASAP?
wait a couple of weeks?
never update?

what do you normally do?

Ah so not really possible to track down or do much about. But I agree with +Ray Ortega that it would be good to keep it there so a stats nerd can have an idea of what's going on.

hi all   put on a conference last week and recorded hours of it. Want to put it out.
Should I put clips in between my narrative or the whole thing ?

Think about your audience. If the material's niche and they're into it, they'll listen. If you think it might bore them, take out the highlights and maybe add your own comments to give a personal angle on what's being said.

Thanks everyone.. one more Question.. it looks like I'm gonna have to go with laughingwithcancerpodcast.com the other is taken. Should my libsyn account be the same or should I stick with laughingwithcancer.libsyn.com? I know some of you might think im asking dumb questions but I really don't know how the whole Domain, RSS, Https works and I just want to try to get it right the first time lol

Thanks Elvis

More than likely you will be the one typing that address rather than your fans. They will search for you in iTunes, Stitcher, etc. If you think it makes sense to have them the same, for sake of easy remembering, then go with that. Otherwise, save yourself a few characters.

I have a question and would like to know what you guys think... should "Podcast" be in the tittle of your show? For instance "laughing with cancer" or "laughing with cancer podcast"  and as far as your domain name should you have podcast.com or just the name of your show .com? I know this might be a silly question to some of you but I'm new to all of this
Thanks Elvis

I think if the focus of the site is the podcast then it is fine to add it to the domain name. I just lunched a new show and used the word podcast. http://thetechpodcast.com. I don't think thetech.com would have worked the same way? And if all else fails buy it both ways and do a redirect?

Hey there pod people! I'm a chick and I've got problems, so I created the podcast +Chicks With Problems. Me and my very funny partner, Lee, chat about our lives, tell funny stories, make fun of those who have wronged us, and generally just try to make people laugh...a difficult task, indeed. I'm looking to network with new podcasters and learn from experienced podcasters. I look forward to hearing your shows!
