How to Remove the Bounce In Your Podcast Studio

I was just on the community forums and someone was asking about room control for podcasting. As a musician, I’ve seen it all. Foam, egg cartons, carpeting, and more on the walls.  But what is the cheapest and aesthetically pleasing way to do it? I remember one time I went to a friends house to lay down some drum tracks.

The burlap had couch foam inside it and...

How To Use the Selfie to Your Podcast’s Advantage

The Sinatra song goes: When you’re smiling, when you’re smiling. Then the whole world smiles at you… Selfies are big business because you can capture the moment by pointing a camera at yourself. Watching social media I see a lot of people are doing the “Ellen Show selfie” hoping to break a record on Twitter. Unless they have Bradley Cooper taking the picture, Samsung hosting the photo, or Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey, or other major stars in it during a prime time event, you’ll most likely not hit that number. You WILL get noticed, though. A...

Can an Audio Podcast Go Viral? 5 Ways It Can!

A couple months ago, Stan Alcorn posed the issue that while videos, websites and photos can do it, podcasts might not have the ability to go viral. But that is really not true.

Podcast from Mobile device 0

Podcast or Interview from your iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows Device

The best part about podcasting is how mobile it has become. Even back in 2007, you could get a digital recorder which allowed you to record audio. I recorded audio for a podcast once from my old HTC 8125 Windows phone. It was a fun and eye-opening experience for me because I saw what we were able to do in the future of podcasting. Add to this some great microphones you can add to your smartphone or tablet, your podcast options are a lot better than before. Also add the fact you can instantly upload to server location so your...

Maybe you podcast from your dining room table or you take this rig to a hotel with you because your podcast is time-sensitive (TV show podcast, major event, etc). One problem you run into is external noise – Maybe the walls in the hotel are thin or you are two doors away from the elevator, even the air conditioning is pretty loud. Heck, maybe the laptop fan is too loud, which is harder to get...
