01- The “Podfather” — Adam Curry on Screencasting and Podcasting

Our inaugural episode of Skills in Screencasts and Podcasts delivers an interview with the “Podfather,” Adam Curry, who discusses New Media importance in the areas of podcasting and screencasting.

Around 2011, there was a movement from the New Media community of content creators to try to get bloggers to add Podcasting to their skills and join the podcasting community — mainly to grow their audience and add another channel for their content.

In 2014, the current movement is to try to get the podcasters to add screencasting to their skill-set — and vice-versa, get screencasters to add podcasting to their skills portfolio. The idea is to grow their audience and increase the possibilities of monetization, generate additional revenue streams and exploit new channels for content distribution.

About Adam Curry:

Born in 1964, he is “on the cusp” of the Baby Boomer range, and is one of the “last of the official Baby-Boomers.” He also has had a history of financial success in making millions, then spending them all, and then finally of being an Entrepreneur that found happiness by living his passion as a “Government Legislation Analyst” in his latest business of podcasting with his show of No Agenda.

After over 6 years of building a loyal audience, he  has proven that the road to his full-time Entrepreneurship is with the business model which he has proven successful — known as the VALUE-FOR-VALUE model.

But to many others in the New Media arena, Adam Curry is also known as the “Pod-Father” —  since he and Dave Winer created the ability to implement successful podcasting. It was this breakthrough that allowed him to explore audio podcasting and create a show that still has a tremendous worldwide following of loyal listeners (known by Adam as “producers” — like the ones in the Hollywood model of entertainment).

This came after a career with MTV and broadcasting. His media experience saw him as part of Mevio.com, (previously known as Podshow) with different podcasts that he also started (like the Daily Source Code).

However, almost seven years ago, he started his flagship podcast show called NO AGENDA with his co-host, columnist John C. Dvorak. As an entrepreneur, he has developed the format and content of the show.

You will notice that Adam Curry has several “firsts” in his success as a full-time podcaster-entrepreneur:

(1) He provides docoumented deconstruction, information of value and entertainment;

(2) He created his own position and title as a Government Legislation Analyst. Yes, he actually READS, analyzes and deciphers each governmental bill, proclamation, executive order, and United Nations document–and he even highlights the pertinent sections that can provide you, the listener, with critical thinking and and intelligent basis for making decisions and being well-informed. The documents and other valuable information are part of his extraordinary show notes, which are free to the listener from his podcast web site.

(3) He has proven that his business model of VALUE-FOR-VALUE can be a successful one (and so far, a sustainable one) by building a loyal audience and receiving willing donations for the value that the audience receives.
