Comment from Lester

Listened to show number 37 today and I want to comment on the controversy about the RSS button. YES! You need that button! Not all of us use Itunes and I use the rss to subscribe. Without a button it is hard to find your feed and the podcasters that don’t have it; I tend to move on to other podcasts just because they make it hard for me to subscribe to them.

I Agree!

Question from Abner (Audio Feedback)

Abner had GREAT audio quality whatever he was using!

Casturbation Defined:
1. Verb: Producing content with no real value for your audience. To record for the sake of hearing one’s own voice. To record for the sake of keeping with a self-inflicted schedule.
2. Verb: Participating in activities that provide no real value to your podcast.
