Becuase of My Podcast Twin Spin with Aaron Peterson
Aaron does a number of podcast including the Blacklist Exposed, Remake the Movie Right, Smirk, and the Hollywood Outsider
Becuase of his podcast(s) Aaron was asked to Officiate the
wedding of two listeners who met through the Hollywood Outsider podcast.
Aaron and his co-host Troy Heinritz (from the Black List Exposed) were one of six media
companies asked to attend the 100th episode of the Black List

There are tools that you can use to make a snippet of your
podcast. These tools turn them into a video file to paste on social
sites like Twiter, Facebook, and Instagram. This is not the first
tool to be based on sharing audio snippets. Clammr was a tool
intended for you to be able to easily create a clip and those clips
were then easy to share. Clammr lasted about three years
(2014-2017). I had a lot of great press, and was
mentioned on a regular basis. Now a year later, other companies
have come to fill the void.
My scenario: I looked at the services for what I would use. I
want four episode each with a different design.

This is a free tool that allows
you to make a video out of audio. In theory it can transcribe your
audio. The few times I tried the transcription, it was pretty
awful. It does give you the ability to have more than one image, as
well as text. You can easily make a copy of a project and edit it
to be new. There is an image search tool so you can find images to
use in your video. BE SURE to read the terms of service as one of
the services is Getty Images (who will take you to court for using
their images if you didn't obtain a license. You can't beat the
price (free). There are videos along the way to help you through
the learning curve.
I liked that Audiogram actually
gives you a live animated preview of your finished file. You
didn't have to compile it and think, "Oh wait, I don't like that."
You can see it before you turn it into a video. They have a bunch
of premade designs. You have much more control over things like
titles and positions of animations. You can even load an existing
design from a previous movie to save time. Audiogram also shows
your social sites (if you want) at the end of the video. These are
not clickable. When you are done creating your video. you can
download it or email it to your phone for easy sharing on
Instagram. For me to do four videos a month would be $19. I can do
two videos for free.
Wavve the most set of
elaborate tools. You can drag and drop exactly where you want
things to appear. You have more fonts, etc. When you are done you
can post your video to Facebook and Twitter right from your account
(and like the others send the video to your phone for Instagram).
Wavve does give the ability to do a few free videos per month
(depending on the length). They have some video tutorials
to walk you
through the system. If you are looking to make super cool looking
graphics, this is the tool. For my scenerio, it would cost
you're looking for free, Sparemin/Headliner is free. While not as versatilscenarioll give you
something to share.
for my scenario (4 shows a month, each video with a new

ability to save your design choices and use them over and

will see that you can turn these into a giant time suck choosing
the right font, the right etc.
you have access to something that makes trackable links (pretty
Link for Wordpress) you may want to use a special link with your
Audiogram to see if it generates more clicks.
one thing missing (in my opinion) is stats on how many times the
file was played.
What You Should Do Even If You
Don't Use These Services
What I like about these services is it makes you think. It makes
you ask yourself, "What is THEY key clip that will make people want
to hear more? What clip can I create to motivate people to come and
