Well this is my 200th episode of this podcast. Let me say up front, just becuase there are 200 episodes does not mean that these are great episodes or I am better than any other podcaster. It is a fun to listen back on some of the old episodes. I play some clips from my first podcast (for the musicians cooler).

I started this podcast back in October of 2005. Since then many other podcasts about podcasting have come and gone including:

Podcasting for Dummies (last show 11/19/2008)
Today in Podcasting (last show 10/21/2008)
Podcaster Confessions (all episodes have vanished)
Behind the Scenes (last show 1/6/2007)
Podcasting ABP (only did two episodes)
Learn to podcast (apple – ended 2006)
Podcasting 101 – (last episode 7/13/2008)
Podcasting Step By Step (Gone)
The Podcasting Blog ( 8/2008)
Podcasting Demystified (ended in 2006)

Also the yahoo podcast directory came and went (and people said “Podcasting is dead”). Software titles like “podcast station” and “mix craft live” have both gone away. In the mean time podcasting continues to grow, ways to create and receive them (phones, etc).

I am still here and ready to help you start a podcast no matter if you want it to do it yourself, or if you are looking for a podcast consultant to coach you through or do it for you.

One podcast about podcasting is the Podcasters' Emporium. Anybody know of any others?

  1. Congratulations on 200 episodes! Your combination of persistence and consistency is obviously a good one.

    You left The Podcast Brothers off your list. They went away when PME and Blog World Expo merged. Podcasters’ Emporium is pretty good, though the episodes run an hour or more in length and appear on an unpredictable schedule.

    While I’m here, a last 5 in 5:

    The Slate Political Gabfest (www.slate.com/gabfest/)

  2. PS Something is wonky in your theme layout for single posts: I’m seeing the first 90% of my comment in what should be the sidebar…

    Congratulations Dave on a long running show. I have been subscribed for as long as I have been podcasting. I don’t always agree with what you say but I really love your dedication to the craft and the tips and tricks that got me started in 2005 🙂 Thanks.

    Just wondering if you were referring to Podcasters’ Emporium in the show notes (there is a small typo there)? If so then thanks as I am one of the hosts. We also managed in the Aussie iTunes store to get a new section added under more technology –> “Podcasting” which is awesome because some great shows about podcast podcasting were getting very lost in many other categories.

    Congratulations again Dave and keep up the great work.
