56- Podcaster courtesy and tips for audio quality with Daniel J Lewis

This episode is being repurposed and re-syndicated from an earlier interview with Daniel J Lewis of The Audacity to Podcast show, in which we discussed podcaster courtesy in bumpers and interviews — along with tips for improving your audio quality via mp3 encoding.

Daniel J Lewis delivers courtesyThis audio episode content was first published in the show called the Community of Five podcast, and with express permission at the time of the original recording, we deliver this to you.

Reason? The problem of courtesy among podcasters has grown quickly, due to the nature of the pressure —

a) to get into NEW AND NOTEWORTHY in iTunes(R) (yes, it still persists today, due to the myth started in 2013);

b) to see other podcasters as “competition” and try to outdo them in getting the exposure, links, audience awareness, etc. instead of others;

or

c) to be discourteous due to monetization goals for either download cpm revenue or product promotion, etc.

In any case, the reciprocity of giving bumpers, interviews or other types of courteous acts has grown significantly in a tense atmosphere of competition and the race for monetization.

Why?

Well, it could be that there are so many podcast shows today that being recognized and receiving the links and awareness and exposure seem to be the holy grail for podcasters.

So, we have decided to repurpose an earlier episode interview with Daniel J Lewis, host of The Audacity to Podcast, in which we discuss this issue with some caveats to the aspiring or new podcasters, as well as other screencasters who are getting into the podcasting space today.

32- PODCASTERS SOCIETY program helps podcasters take their show to AMAZING levels

Especially for screencasters who are contemplating adding podcasting to their New Media portfolio and skill set — as well as screencasters who recently joined the podcasting community by adding published podcasts into the podosphere — there is a new program announced on 20August2015 from Daniel J. Lewis that can help these people get on the FAST TRACK to grow their podcast show to a level that is named “AMAZING.”

PS web site pageThis episode focuses on the launch and announcement of a new premium membership site ONLY for podcasters who already have a podcast published in iTunes(R).

And remember: podcasts can be video podcasts, as well as audio podcasts.

The program is called PODCASTERS SOCIETY at podcasterssociety.com (2 middle s’s). [Editor’s note: the apostrophe was  omitted due to technical issues with tags in this post]

This premium offering and program comes to you via Daniel J Lewis, podcaster for The Audacity to Podcast.

As you will hear in this audio podcast episode is my initial perspective after I had joined the program. My reasons for joining and hopes for value are included in the audio podcast.

I consider this more of a “mentorship collaboration” program, with a site that provides webinars that are premium, as well as some guest webinars that allow anyone to consume the latter for free for a day or two only.

This episode describes, from my viewpoint, the value that is promised and the types of collaboration that will be available:

– interactive webinars within the community;

(note: there will be a webinar with a special subject-matter-expert guest each month, and this will be open to the public–including a replay– but only for a couple of days, after which it will be available only to the members of PODCASTERS SOCIETY)

– networking;

– discussions;

– Q and A

FORA for different discussion items (n.b.: “forums” is not correct, since FORUM and FORA  are from the Latin word forum, whose plural is “fora” — very much like: the plural of criterion is criteria. Sorry to be pic., but isn’t nice to know what is correct?);

– One note that is good news for us: There is NOT yet another private facebook group with this program! That’s what the fora offer.

– Chat with the Slack program;

– Teams with intercommunication helping of each other;

and

– more focused expertise from Daniel J Lewis to the members in other avenues (e.g., via webinar Q/A, via discounts, etc.).

FORA with off-topic RANTThere is a replay webinar available to describe the program, along with the initial pricing that expires on 10 September 2015 at:

http://app.webinarjam.net/replay/17740/94bb05a7a1/0/lw7118838a1

Note: please excuse the 2 audio clips in this episode, which I included as part of “dry humor” for the content theme.

Finally, now that I have joined, I will be able to provide more details about this type of membership site and the value it has specifically for podcasters — and that this is NOT yet another program that teaches you how to podcast as a beginner.

Note: Please be advised that charter membership will end on September 10th of 2015.

12- Reviews of Audello from 2 podcasters and 1 screencaster

Product platforms for podcasting and content creation and publishing have been around for a while. Case in point is the old Podomatic.com site, where a template-driven or wizard-like process allowed a novice user to record audio content, then produce and publish a podcast episode very easily — although there were drawbacks later with portability and management. So these all-in-one platforms are not a new idea, as they originally have been available since 2007.

In this episode, we focus on reviews and opinions from two podcasters and a screencaster about early experiences with the newly available Podcasting platform called Audello.

The podcasters involved are:

(1) Dave Jackson from www.SchoolOfPodcasting.com, who discussed his negative audello experiences, and from whom we have several audio clips, as well as a link to a video which he published on YouTube:
