As I promised, I’ll use this blog as a way to review what I learn while tackling this podcasting production world.
Let’s simply start with accepting that it is quite confusing. I signed up for Blubrry.com podcast hosting because they had positioned themselves as the best for working on a WordPress blog.
Well, I haven’t found them to be easy. And to be honest, I still don’t.
Sure they have tons of videos but that just really gets more confusing. I’m still hosting on them but not sure if they’ll make the cut for the full launch in the fall. One suggested benefit was their connection to Spotify. Yet, two attempts and no luck. The integration into iTunes didn’t work well either.
Again, I’m very clear that I might be the idiot here. They might be great but there appears to be no easy customer service system for asking questions.
The quick fix was a FeedBurner feed. Also, still alive. Nothing appeared to get into iTunes until I started using Soundcloud. Things got a lot smoother after that issue.
And magically iTunes was working almost instantly.
On the production side, I got turned on to a great app called Just Press Record and I really like the transcription feature. The interview episode that I did for the first test was on zoom and that worked well.
Well, I’m having fun and getting some interesting feedback. So eyes forward during pre-production month #2.
