Best Ways to Invent and Plan Powerful Podcast Topics

All podcasters do it. Try to come up with the next best idea for the show. Some procrastinate until show time and hope the lightining bolt will strike. But what if you pre-planned the podcast without even knowing it? Dwight D. Eisenhower once said “Plans are nothing; planning is everything.” Every show you see on TV starts with a morning (or weekly) planning meeting. Weeding the bad ideas from the good. Bouncing ideas to make sure nothing is done or said wrong. So how do you as a podcaster go about doing that? Put Topic Ideas in a Book On...

A couple months ago, Stan Alcorn posed the issue that while videos, websites and photos can do it, podcasts might not have the ability to go viral. But that is really not true.

Podcast from Mobile device 1

Podcast or Interview from your iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows Device

The best part about podcasting is how mobile it has become. Even back in 2007, you could get a digital recorder which allowed you to record audio. I recorded audio for a podcast once from my old HTC 8125 Windows phone. It was a fun and eye-opening experience for me because I saw what we were able to do in the future of podcasting. Add to this some great microphones you can add to your smartphone or tablet, your podcast options are a lot better than before. Also add the fact you can instantly upload to server location so your...

Every week we connect up and record with minimal issue. Especially nowadays when there are multiple ways to connect and communicate. Here are some...

These changes will give final depth and feel to what you are getting across. Making these changes are also a reason why I like using a video and...

Makeup – Should I Wear It for my Video Podcast?

Remember that scene from Batman (the Michael Keaton version) where the news reporters couldn’t wear makeup because the Joker poisoned certain perfumes and soaps? Boy, those newscasters looked pretty ratty. Now, flash forward to 2012, where news is being reported without the use of makeup at all. It’s called Video Podcasting, and we’re doing it au natural on the web. But should we be thinking about looking pretty for the web community? Whenever I prepare for a show, I usually do one thing to clean up for the show: I take a shower. It’s not as much the clean factor,...
