10 Vocal Exercise Words that Loosen Up Face, Vocal Chords for Podcast

Remove an Old Podcast from iTunes Store [How-To]

A couple weeks ago I wrote an article on how to Submit your podcast to iTunes. Because of that I was asked the question:   I just migrated from Squarespace – 5 to 6 for my blog that hosts my podcast feeds. In so doing, even though the blog podcast has the same url, I had to resubmit them to iTunes in order to have them work – and they have been approved.

The Shure 183 and 185 with in-line preamp. Shure 183 This lavaliere mic is great for getting the voice without having to stick the mic up by the mouth. The 183 is used on Shure’s wireless microphone pack but I got a deal on just the microphones (which I couldn’t pass up). The microphone has a TA4F connector because it needs to be pre-amped before it can be sent to...
