A6: No helpful advice here. Most “resources” I’ve seen are about monetisation and stuff, not the making of audio media.

via TweetDeck

james_tew And finally for tonight, Q6: What’s your go to resource for podcasting news?

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:58 PM, Mar 3rd, 2015 via TweetDeck)

@drsimmo @702sydney Sadly, no. I burned out all my vitriol in writing this morning.

via TweetDeck in reply to drsimmo

A5: I’d never tweet a bare URL to an MP3 file. No context for listener, no way of knowing how their client will treat it.

via TweetDeck

james_tew Q5: What is your stance on sharing a direct link to your podcast mp3? Is automatic playing a “no-no” when sharing on SM?

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:53 PM, Mar 3rd, 2015 via TweetDeck)

A4: I’ve never used Audacity. I see too many people complaining about it. (Myself, I use Reaper on OS X.)

via TweetDeck

james_tew Q4: Audacity users, @IanWoolf wants to know if any of you are having issues with the program?

via TweetDeck

A3: No view. I’m not involved with podcasts as business support, only as podcasts as media in their own right.

via TweetDeck

james_tew Q3: Should certain types of businesses utilise the podcast medium or can it be adapted to fit all businesses?

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:30 PM, Mar 3rd, 2015 via TweetDeck)

A2: It depends whether your podcast is informational / educational rather than “art” for want of a better word. (2/2)

via TweetDeck

A2: Transcripts are sometimes nice to have, but huge time/cost. The audio of the podcast is the media object. (1/2)

via TweetDeck

james_tew Q2: Where do you stand on podcast transcripts? Should they be incorporated into your show note process?

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:22 PM, Mar 3rd, 2015 via TweetDeck)

“Debbie Gibson is sort of this triple threat,” says @domknight. Uhuh.

via TweetDeck

@staticsan Because @domknight introduced it. I recognised the words he used.

via TweetDeck in reply to staticsan

Well, @james_tew, “What is the podcast about?” is kind of the starting-point, the defining questions. All flows from that.

via TweetDeck in reply to james_tew

Why is @domknight playing Debbie Gibson at us?

via TweetDeck

A1: Depends if you’re supporting a business, fulfilling a desire, or have some specific value to give to the world. (2/2)

via TweetDeck

A1: Surely that depends on what the overall goal is? “I want to do a podcast” isn’t a goal in and of itself. (1/2)

via TweetDeck

james_tew Q1: In your opinion, should producers be niche focused or trying to cover a broad topic? What’s your best advice?

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:12 PM, Mar 3rd, 2015 via TweetDeck)

@james_tew Ta. Nothing in my head as a question right now, alas.
