  • S4E2 Quadcast 101
    May 26, 2017

    Courtney Calkins, the man, the myth, the legend from the Quadcast Podcast joins me today for a discussion on being an authentic host. It's what attracts us as listeners, and it's what will attract listeners to you as a podcast host. Bring the energy! We also discuss methods to prevent "Pod Fading" and social media tactics in building your audience. I'll give you a hint, be social! Never stop learning or trying to master your craft. Courtney talks about bragging when he first started that he never edited his show. Over the course of producing his shows, he's taught himself how to create smooth transitions, and segment bumpers. He loves placing music beds through out the course of an episode. His show has become highly produced. I think it's an aural work of art. Podcasting is one of the few forms of entertainment where you can not only build relationships but form solid friendships! If you're producing your podcast, I'm sure you're hoping to be able to give something to the listener, but if you allow it, the listener will give something back. Podcasting can be a fun filled personal journey of discovery. It can be therapeutic. Be transparent and honest with your audience. You'll be a better host, and you'll have a better show because of it. Courtney is a self taught indie podcaster with the production value of an NPR show, but with the energy of an afternoon morning show! It's talk radio at it's finest. It's a podcast about the podcaster. I for one think it deserves a subscription on your playlist! iTunes:https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/quadcast-podcast/id942359443?mt=2 Also in this show, I begin production...errrrr...construction on the new Monkey Poo Studios project! More information to come in the coming weeks. Keep listening....and keep podcasting! -Angry Ginger […]

  • S4E1 Lore 101
    May 9, 2017

    Aaron Mahnke from the world wide phenomenon podcast known as Lore is interviewed in this episode. Aaron takes us from what was a simple (almost deleted) mistake, to a podcast that is now an upcoming television show, with a full season coming to Amazon Prime. Lore is about to become a book series too. Listen to how one podcaster went from just wanting to tell stories....to living a dream! The man actually admits to having to sometimes pinch himself. I'll be honest, I was extremely honored to spend more than the 30 minutes we had booked talking to Aaron. He's kind, intelligent, and very generous. I hope that everyone who listens to this episode learns something and is inspired to keep podcasting, or to continue on. You can find Lore wherever you listen to podcasts. Find Aaron over at @amahnke and say hi! I also have a quick "How Has Podcasting Changed Your Life" story from Ran Levi. Another podcaster who went from podcasting, to becoming a respected person in his field. He's been on TV. He's written books. Podcasting has indeed changed his life for the better and I'm so happy he shared his story with us! You can find Ran on twitter at @RanLevi Would you like to help support this podcast?

  • S2E11 Coffee With Kenobi
    August 26, 2015

    This episode we have on the two awesome hosts of Coffee with Kanobi, a coffee house style chat about all things Star Wars. We discuss the importance of connecting with listeners via Social media, like Twitter, and how being real and genuine can bring in the audience. Their show has come a long way from their first attempt at recording. The first attempt taking an astounding 14 hours to record, with only 18 minutes of listenable material, to now being featured on StarWars.com A few things we learned from both Dan and Cory are that family and friendship come first, before the podcast, so they work together using clear communication, and balancing each other out, to make sure everything gets done.  They advise this; you can't fail at something when you are doing it for fun, and you can find your own voice through practice on the mic. We also have a podcaster who shares his "How has podcasting change my life" story. He is the one and only, Kip Clark, host of the "Stride and Saunter" podcast, which can be found here:http://www.strideandsaunter.com/ Also weighing in on his side of the podcasting world, with another Podcast Review, is non other than our good buddy Andrew Johnstone, previously of the now defunct but still reputable Podcast Squared. Andrew joins us to give you, the listener, a review on the podcast "Cardboard!" hosted by Rich Sommer, a podcast all about board games. You can find Cardboard! here:http://cardboard.wolfpop.com/ If you would like to share with us how podcasting has changed your life or if you have suggestions for a guest, please send us an email!

  • Podfund 101
    March 17, 2014

    Unless you've been hiding under a rock, or still dialing into your internet, you've heard of Crowd Source Funding. Made popular by sites like Kickstarter, Indie GoGo and GoFundMe.com. Well, there is a new Crowd Funding sheriff in town and his name is Podfund! Podfund runs and looks very similar to the other funding sites you may have used or checked out in the past...only this one is geared specifically for You, a fellow podcaster! Robert, the creator and owner of Podfund.com was nice enough to sit down, over skype, and fill us in on all the details of creating and maintaining a podcast campain. If this is something that interests you then stick around for this interview. In the Podcast Tip of the day, I introduce you to a site called DonateYourAccount.com. Which is a cool site that allowes your Facebook and/or Twitter followers to donate thier account for you to spread your message through. Now, your followers already know how crazy you can be with your promotion, so they do this graciously by allowing only so many Tweets or Facebook entries to be used across thier timelines. You're followers can pick a couple times a day/week or Month. If you have some loyal followers and they are always retweeting your stuff...this could be a good way to get them to help out...at no extra effort from them.

  • Employee of the Month 101
    March 14, 2014

    On this episode of Podcasting 101, we talk with Catie Lazuraus of Employee of the Month fame. This is a New York based live comedy show. When her staff isn't tending to the building of her own personal moat, complete with organically fed gator's she keeps them busy with all the behind the scenes stuff that goes into making a podcast...even if it is really just one man...in a van...down by the river! Before interviewing Catie, I offer a podcast tip. A resource all podcasters should be using. What was once known as CommentCast, a Mac only iTunes comment aggregator is now a fully functioning web based program for Mac and Window users called ReviewCast.  Also, if you're a podcaster looking for a free Voicemail set up. Checkout a really easy to use site called K7. It's a small seattle based complany that gives you a free phone number to use. Once you set up your account and give it your email address it will send all of your voicemails to you in MP3 form, straight to your inbox. Pretty handy huh? We also speak about the whole Podcast Patent thing for just a moment. If you are a podcast supporter or a podcaster, then you must check out this site. Listen to a small clip (video) from Adam Carolla himself.

  • Inverse Delirium 101
    February 19, 2014

    In today's episode I sit down with Geoffrey Welchman, host of The Inverse Delirium. If you're a fan of podcasts such as We're Alive or Welcome to Night Vale, other radio play type podcasts, then I suggest you give this show a listen. It's NPR with a dry but very witty sense of humor! Geoffrey will admit that he's not the most savvy marketer, and not all of us podcasters are. But he does give great tips on keeping to a schedule. How he keeps things fresh in his podcast, and how he's brought in guests such as Kevin Pollack and Lewis Black to name a few. This is a great interview with a very down to earth guy who's not looking for a way to make a living off of his podcast, he's just simply hoping to entertain. Whether it be a couple experiencing Netflix adultry, an inside look at the Voice Over Olympics or a reporter stuck on a chunk of ice with Scientists at war with a brutal faction of Walrus's. This sketch comedy show has a little something for everyone! &nbs […]

    July 29, 2013

    Building your podcasting audience is a constent struggle. Even when your doing good, you want to do better! Tyler Smith is the host of Battleship Pretension, a podcast that delves deep into the structure and theory of film.  Co-host David Bax (absent) and Tyler have built their podcast for the last 6 years and still struggle to get it to a place they are happy with. This is a common theme amongst podcasters, What defines a successfull podcast, A small legion of loyal listeners or is it just a numbers game? Does a large number of downloads define success? Of course our guest is the host of a movie podcast so there this episode is layered in a bit of film talk but we also talk Equipment as well as spend some time on how to market a podcast. This is an always changing, ever evolving creature in the podcasting world. If there is one way that will always show results, big or small, seems to be the guest host.

  • Beyond The 140 101
    July 19, 2013

    Podcasters using Skype for their interviews will want to listen to this one. The hosts of Beyond The 140, a play on the amount of characters allowed on Twitter, run thier whole podcast off of Skype. They are both in 2 seperate states. They've never even met. Every week they invite someone who's "Twitter Famous" to come on their show and have a chat. We also talk a lot about scheduling a show. Keeping in constent contact with the guest leading up to the interview is key. Having a Pre-show call is also very benificial. It helps all 3 get close like freinds. This show's in the interview. @IAmDelFreaky and @JCWisdomNuggets have got a lot of great nuggets (pun intended) to share with first time podcasters or any podcaster for that matter. If you're looking to do more interviews or want a good template to create for you to manage your show's upcoming interviews then you can learn a lot from these guys!

  • Pull The Plug 101
    June 24, 2013

    @PTPpodcast stops by the studio to talk a little podcasting this week! Before we even get started, seeing how they're a Canadian based trio, we had to ask them a few questions about the old TV show "You Can't Do That On Television." We quickly learn that though they've heard of it, they are to young to have seen it. Shannon, Justin and Justin all come from a background in radio/broadcasting! They're the real deal. They take us from thier days at a college radio station to their first days of podcasting. From great studio equipment to just a macbook with a built-in-microphone they plug away at their podcast dream like an indie band that could! ...and they do! This group has tons of advice to give and a great sense of humor. *NSFW*** This episode has a few crude jokes. Though I try to keep this show away from the dirty side of humor...sometimes it's just got to happen. If that offends you, just skip this episode and we'll be on our best behavior most of the time....
