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.

Today I talk about some experiments I've done promoting my podcast. I also talk about some of the results I've done by finding a tool thats fits your listeners - in my case it was bookmarks promoting m podcast to college students - and how effective it can be.

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.
