I've been saying podcasting will change the world since 2005, and this week I had a spike in people starting podcasts. Why? Because a very popular Internet Marketing Conference with the typical players stated over and over how podcasting is THE THING that everyone should be doing. Then I heard it on another podcast, and another podcast. So today I'm saying, if you don't believe me, believe these other people: Michaels Stelzner of the Social Media Examiner (who gets 20,000 downloads per episode) that podcast is the hottest thing in 2013. Pat Flynn (who grew his audience by 20% in 2012) said that everyone at the Social Media Marketing Summt was "buzzing" about podcasting. Naresh Vissa on the speaking of wealth show said a podcast subscriber was worth around $25 while an email subscriber was worth $6 due to the action it takes it takes to subscribe. It's not as easy, and a podcast subscriber truly wants your content. Jason Harmanof the Hartman Media group said in 1999 when he wrote his first book he was telling people to drop everything and build a website. Now he is telling everyone to stop and get a podcast.
Not only has ray Ortega landed a full time job podcasting, but this job recently sent Ray to the UK to spotlight an event on the podcast. While he was there Ray met up with Mike Russell of Music Radio Creative.

Lewis, +Jeffrey Bradbury, Ray Ortega and myself would purchase if we were starting our first show and had the knowledge we now possess after years of producing podcasts. Based on experience in podcast production, we’ll take a mock budget and spend it on what we think are the most valuable items for starting a podcast.
