Rumor has it PGT is starting up again. Let's hope it's true and that your dulcet tones will soon be flooding the airways yet again. Miss you guys in my ears.

Just had this idea yesterday, so I haven't really put to much thought into it...But I'm curious what you folks think.

I'm trying to drum up a bit more business for my Podcasting and Live Streaming business. I had the idea of offering a sale or a special package for the Holidays/New Years.

Thinking of calling it the Podcasters Relief Package.
You can buy it for yourself or you can buy it for a Podcaster in your family... or even someone you think needs a week or two off from editing.

The idea would be that at a discounted rate, we would do the episodes editing, and if you needed, the show notes too. We could really offer anything, maybe someone is planning a special holiday episode thats going to take more work than normal...

This is really just in the idea phase right now, and thats why I'm posting here. I was wondering what you guys thought and if you saw value in something like this? Specially cause I know how hard it can be to keep up a release schedule during such a busy time of year.

If so... what do you think it would be worth. For simple editing? Or offer editing and show notes? Or just discount my package rates for single episodes and let them pick what they need. (http://podcastsmarter.com/menu/)

Thanks and I hope everyone is getting in the festive spirit!

Hello, wonderful, smart people! I need help, please, if you're willing/able to provide it.

There is a new problem in my audio, and I don't know if it's coming from my microphone (a Blue Yeti), my headphones (Sennheiser HD598), my computer (2012 MacBook Air), my recording software (Audacity), some faulty/shorting wires, etc. But from 4:18-6:56 in this episode, there is this AWFUL, SHARP POPPING/SNAPPING SOUND.

It's happened in every episode I've recorded since. It's driving me insane. I can't possibly edit it all out (it's frequent, continual, and buried within the audio), and I don't hear it while I'm recording. Can you help me identify what it is, so I can prevent it from happening again?!?!

You can listen here -- the snapping sound goes from 4:18-6:56... thank you in advance!

Does anyone in here have experience with hosting webinars? There's so many services, many are quite expensive and I'm just trying to figure out what I need. If you've used webinar services, which have you tried?

Thoughts about a therapy session on Monday at round 9:30 pm Eastern? Topic about people's reactions to Podcast Movement and questions from those who missed it and want some info.

So the podcast category is now available on Spotify in Ireland. I haven't seen any information online on how you get your podcast on to Spotify.
Does anyone have any information on this?
I've included a screenshot below of how it looks.

Congrats to PGT'ers +Corey Fineran +David Jackson +Troy Heinritz +Wayne Henderson +Jennifer Briney (and anyone I might have missed because I'm rushing to post this) for their inclusion in tonight's Podcast Awards' final 10 per category. I'm sure I'm missing someone (probably someone like super important, Oh yeah, +Daniel J. Lewis ) ... congrats to all.

I'd like to explain why I kind of disappeared from this group over the last six months or so. Guess what I just did....I just handed my boss my resignation letter! This podcasting journey started 7 1/2 years ago and it's now allowed me to leave my job and start my own business! You've probably heard me talk about Ivy Envy (my podcast on the Chicago Cubs) more than the one I did for my employer. Since 2012, I've been able to call myself a "professional podcast producer" as my employer created a new position for me to do video podcasts for teachers to play in their classrooms to help high school students with disabilities in their transition from high school to life after high school (primarily through work/employment).

Well, there is a huge need for this type of curriculum and schools all over the state of Illinois have started using that podcast. I saw a need and last summer, I started working on starting my own business, creating innovative and interactive online transition curriculum and marketing it to schools all over the country.

After receiving contracts from school districts and cooperatives, I'm able to leave my job at the end of this school year. Many of the people in this group have influenced me (whether they know it or not) to take this scary jump. +Bob Zerull +Ray Ortega +Daniel Hayes +Nick Seuberling  +David Jackson  and of course, +Tawny Fineran who has been insanely supportive over the last year as I've worked on building this.
