Be Seen as an Expert
Today we have an interview with Kern Ramsdell of the homrecordingweekly.com podcast. In the interview you will hear the following:
- Kern wasn't sure anyone would listen to him
- He wanted to talk to some of the experts in his field
- Kern had not been getting any major results from having “just a blog.”
When Kern took his blog and turned it into a podcast:
- He is doing consulting work
- He is talking to leaders in his field

Why Amazon S3 is NOT Good good for Podcast Hosting
I wrote about this on my blog, but if I had been using Amazon S3 in July, I would've had 50o Gigabytes of bandwidth would have been $56. (where Libsyn and Blubrry charge ONE fee no matter how many listeners you have)
Live Vs Post Production Recording Styles
Pros of Post Production:
Precision control of volumes, content (especially interviews).
Cons of Post Production:
You have an extra step at the end where you “Mix down” your files into one MP3 (typically 5-10 minutes depending on how long your epsidoe is).
Pros of “Live”: recording:
get done (in theory) you are done. You just tag your files and upload them. If you are using sound effects played live to get your co-host(s) to react, “live” recording is the way to go.
Cons of Live Recording:
Interview guests who are boring.
The time you save not doing post production are wasted doing pre-production setting volumes.
