Today we talk about using a "Radio Voice" to be a podcaster. I talk about Dr Dave from www.shrinkwrapradio.com who was worried that he didn't have a "DJ" voice. He's doing fine, and remember that many people do NOT want to hear a "DJ" voice.
We talk about forum spam. One way to cut down on spam is to require approval of all new members. George from the www.oneminutehowto.com podcast explains he finally wrote a program to stop spam on his website.
I also mention how I've started a "Step by Step" section at the School of Podcasting with my recommended software program, hosting solutions, etc. If you are looking for a quick way to start podcasting, the School of Podcasting is a great solution. www.schoolofpodcasting.com
Dave explains that Mixcraft from Acoustica is his recommended "Multi-track" podcasting software.
I talk about pacing yourself (your conent) when you hit the jackpot. We also talk about bulletin boards (forums), and how to fight spam. Wew also talk about doing an "Anniversary show."
We also throw out the question, "Does anyone know a WYSIWYG theme editor for worpdress?"

HOWEVER, I think that one of the reasons I have seen a rise in my listeners is due to my episdoe headlines. If you just put "your podcast name #12 " that doesn't entice people to listen. Make it easier for your listener by giving them a clue as to what is in your latest show.
