I read about this on Leesa Barnes'
blog how Terry Fallis won 10,000. He previously couldn't get an
agent (which he now has). Congrats Terry.
I mentioned today that Todd Cochrane had said a typical podcast
episode is "done" after 72 hours. I miss spoke, while this is true
cases it is
not in all cases (especially if you material is not timed based).
But if your podcast is (for example) news related, people may not
want to listen to 6 month old news stories. You can hear Todd's
presentation at Podcamp by going to http://www.coefficientmedia.com/podcampohio/
Thanks to George from www.oneminutehowto.com for reminding me of

How Do You Record a Skype
In the past I've said "get it off your computer" and use a portable
recorder. This still
is the safest way. However, I've been using voiceemotion.com and

Podcasting Time Saving
One of the most time consuming parts of podcasting is organizing
and posting your show notes. Did you know that you can put your
show notes in Wordpress (or Libsyn.com) and save them without
publishing them to the public. Then when the show is finished, you
can take out any part of your notes that don't fit, and BOOM!
instant show notes. The key to this is to NOT click the publish
button, but to click the SAVE button. Then when you are rady (and
your audio/video is link to the post) click the publish button.
