News: Podcast Movement and the Academy of Podcasters Awards are going this weekend in Ft. Worth Texas. Mackenzie and Todd from Blubrry are there to tell everyone about Blubrry’s new stuff. I will go through that a bit later in the show. If you are there, or went, I’m sorry I couldn’t make it this year. Hope to make it in the future. I will be at NMX/NAB in April of next year.
Why do I podcast? (And why you might want to)
Several reasons people do podcasts….
To tell the world what you want to say.
To promote a business
To play with audio gear (yes, there are some that love to play around with this stuff)
To make Money $$ (well $)
To become an expert in something
Because they got fired from Radio
The reason I do podcasts.
I like to help others learn new things and I learn just as much by teaching
I meet lots of people because of my podcasts
I like to play with the gear.
Reasons people give for NOT podcasting
It takes time
They don’t like the sound of their own voice
