Podcasting is NOT Dead – Insights into Streaming [Roundtable]

In episode 16 of the roundtable, I am joined by Todd Cochrane to continue our series. This is a special edition of the roundtable because we recorded it during hour 4 of Todd’s 24 hour podcast. Podcasting is NOT Dead In this episode, I start off with an issue that was creeping up during the year. Back in December, NY Times took down their podcasts. In March, they closed all but two of their audio shows. This brought up the question if podcasting was losing it luster. In August Microsoft closed up Zune to merge with Microsoft XBox Music. This...

Create a Podcast Intro 4

Creating a Podcast Intro that People will Remember

If the first 2 seconds of a song is what makes you decide to switch channels, then the first 30 seconds of a podcast may be all your audience hears. You have to keep them around much longer than that. So how do you do it – what’s the magic behind an intro? Structure Your Podcast Intro Creating a catchy opening is important to keeping people around. If you don’t put your best foot forward in the first 30 seconds, then why would people want to stick around? Of course, it’s more than just a catchy intro, but that is...

Using GarageBand to Record a Podcast

In the ever-growing world of podcasting, artists are striving to make a lifestyle easier for themselves. A large portion of the podcast community is focused solely around recording, and recording techniques. One valuable recording technique that is important for every rising podcaster to know is the ability to use amples and loop files within their show. This can save on time in the recording process while also creating an interesting effect within the show. Luckily, technology is helping podcasters more and more to get this desired effect. Computer programs such as GarageBand are easy to use and can create a...

Beats by Dre Headphones 0

Using Headphones While You Podcast?

You might have seen some people wearing some big headphones while they record their shows. Others seem to not be wearing them at all. Lets go down on the skinny of headphones while podcasting. Why Wear Headphones? You basically avoid bleed-through. When you use speakers, the microphone might just pick up the sound and send it back through. That causes a feedback loop. We don’t want that when we podcast, so headphones are a good alternative. Get Beats by Dr. Dre Solo HD at Amazon Headphones or Ear Buds? The idea is to seal out any sound coming in. The answer...
