Hear me talk Podcasting on the PowerPress Podcast December 7, 2015

PowerPress Podcast artLast week, I was a guest on the PowerPress Podcast. During the show, I spoke with MacKenzie about using PowerPress category podcasting vs. PowerPress podcasting channels. We also talked about NaPodPoMo and other podcasting topics.

The PowerPress Podcast is produced by Blubrry. And while the show has PowerPress in the name, it isn’t just about PowerPress or other Blubrry products/services. If you’re into podcasting, and you’re looking for a “podcast about podcasting” check it out.

NaPodPoMo 2015 Roundup December 1, 2015

This year, I participated in National Podcast Post Month (NaPodPoMo). NaPodPoMo was created by veteran podcaster Jennifer Navarrete in 2007, in response to the popularity of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). NaNoWriMo challenges writers to produce a novel during the month of November, while NaPodPoMo challenges podcasters to produce 30 podcasts during the same month. I’ve taken part in NaPodPoMo a few times over the years. This time, I wanted to turn it into a team effort around Hyper Nonsense, the podcast I cohost with Jen. The hope was that fans and friends of the show would join us and/or contribute their own audio to the NaPodPoMo effort, and a couple of them did.

NaPodPoMo artNaPodPoMo doesn’t have a lot of hard and fast rules (which is one of things I like about it). I’ve always approached it from the standpoint of, “If I participate in a podcast during November, it counts for NaPodPoMo.” Participation can mean: Primary production, guest spot, or secondary production such as audio editing. With these qualifiers in mind, I’ve decided to compile all of the podcasts I took part in during November, to see if I did in fact beat the 30-day challenge. I had a hand in the primary production of all of the following episodes unless noted otherwise.

Reviving, revising September 4, 2015

I’ve given some much-needed attention to this website. I’ve also deleted all of the old posts. They weren’t really doing much. It was time for them to go.

I’ve added a new Services page. Check it out if you’re in need of a freelance audio editor or podcast consultant.

In other news, I’ll be a guest today at 9AM PST on the New Media Show. We’ll be talking about podcasting and more. Stop by and say hello!

UPDATE: The recorded version of my guest appearance on the New Media Show is available here.
