Podcast Passion – PHD104

Play Download media

I’ve been having a few things on my mind so I figured rather than write it out and rant on Facebook, I would flip on the mic and just speak it.

This is a somewhat different episode. It’s me rambling on a bit about Passion for podcasting. Also about learning your craft. Even the techy parts.

The main things I tried to get across is this: Learn how this stuff works. Not the super geeky bits, but the basics. Spend the little bit of time it takes to understand what is supposed to happen when you post an episode. Learn how to check your RSS feed.  Learn what an RSS feed is (Hint: it’s a special text file sitting on a server somewhere). Learn how Apple, Google, Stitcher, Tunin, Android Apps and desktop podcatchers work.  Learn how to encode and post your MP3 files.  

Again, that is why those of us who try to support and teach people how to podcast do it.  Be a good student of your craft.

Next time I will be off my soap box.
