The great thing about podcasting is its getting big enough for companies to start building tools for podcasters. Today we look at the Audio Lite system from Gigavox (the makers of the Levelator). www.gigavox.com
You can record your podcast in segements. Then (if needed) you can update certain segments (like an advertiser spot) in the current AND PAST podcasts. I'm using this not for advertisers, but for a non-profit (my church). Instead of having advertising spots rotate in and out, we use it for our calendar, and prayer concerns (items that chance from week to week). This way people are up to date with the latest news (no matter what episode they listen to). In reality your podcast can be evergreen. The information can be updated in past shows. The good news is its free to use. Take some time to think about it and how you want your podcast to go from section to section. I love it. Oh yeah. IT's FREE.
The "bad" news is it doesn't work with Libsyn (it does with the more expensive Libsyn Pro). So I looked at some different web hosts that had unlimited bandwidth (like Midphase.com ) and ended up with Dreamhost.com (as they increase your storage and bandwidth the longer you stay on their system). I will keep you in the loop as we move forward.

Today I went and looked at some numbers regarding people using phones to listen to the School of Podcasting's Morning Announcements. I use voiceindigo.com and I had anywhere from 15 to 47 downloads a month. I also looked at how many people used the link shownotes.schoolofpodcasting.com and since April 100 people have used that link (which typically is not in print like today, but only heard in the podcast). So people ARE going to links they listen to.

Is there ONE thing that you can do to bring a giant number of listeners? Probably not, but the key values are the same - find out where your listeners hang out and get some information to them. "You need to move to where the food is..."
