Sep 18, 2006

Dave has been track EXCATLY how long it takes to make a podcast. This includes:

Researching stories
Organzing show notes for recording
Recorind the Podcast
Editing mp3 tags
Uploading the mp3
Creating the Show notes

It turns out that based on my last 7 podcasts, you spend 4 minutes for every 1 minute of podcast. For example this podcast is about 10 minutes in length. As I type these show notes I'm at the 34 minute mark.

OK BIG DEAL?

Well, sometimes we get caught up in how fun podcasting is and we want to start another one before realizing that if we do a 15 minute podcast 4 times a week, that 4 HOURS of show production required. In some cases, you end up skimping on preparing good quality content, and then ALL your shows suffer.

Just Dave's way of saying, "Maybe you should think about it before starting another podcast."

See you at the Expo

Used appropriately, music and sound effects can really enhance your CONTENT.

Dave shares his feelings as he has quit listening to some podcasts as they play "whacky" sound effects over and over (and they don't even tie in with the content). What do you think? Does this bug you?  

On the other hand, Music and sound effects can create a mood, and a theater of the mind experience when used properly.

Dave gets notified about the Podcaster Awards and in checking eligibility discovers his RSS feed is NOT 100% valid. As the deadline is 7/15 you may want to get cracking on validating your feed, and alerting your listeners (that is if you care about these types of things - it might attract more sponsors if you were people's choice 2006).

Specials thanks to Curt from http://www.digitalslobpod.com for opening the show.

To check your feed go to www.feedvalidator.org

See everyone in California.

UPDATE: I sent an email to Todd Cochrane and he explained the RSS stipulation was to make sure a submission IS a podcast as some submit items that have NO RSS feed at all. Other sites such as clickcaster.com can only be viewed in itunes. Minor issues that can't be helped would be (more than likely) overlooked (I'm paraphrasing what Todd said).
