Summary: I find myself fascinated with the stories of how companies got started – not just the glamor stories but what they did when things did not happen as planned and things did not go well. I also think that those types of stories help to not only motivate me to start something that is similar but also helps get me through the same hurdles that other companies went through. So that’s it – was created. To start, this is simply going to be a documentation of creating my podcasting company and all the fun stuff along the way. The goal is not to try to sell myself as some great podcasting consultant, just to share my adventure with you…

 Episode 003: We have intro music! & Listing on the Zune Marketplace | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:23

Wow - I recorded this on January 9th, however with all the craziness with HomeTech Weekly podcast and kicking off CES 2012, I forgot to actually post this show. When you listen you can probably hear a little exhaustion in my voice (especially as I stumble on some things and repeat some things a few times as well as referring to this show being Episode #2), well that is due to all the build up for CES 2012 (Consumer Electronics Show) and getting the other show recorded.  I took a podcast that I had been planning for a weekly show to not only producing daily shows but some days actually had up to 4 shows in one day.  Being a member of the press has been a truly overwhelming activity. Apple iTunes "Big Brother" - I checked iTunes after I recorded the last show just to check to see if this show was showing up in iTunes and found that it was already there - even though I never got an email from iTunes telling me that it was available (like I got when I submitted HomeTech Weekly). We have an audience! - Without any type of promotion or even telling anyone about it, you have found the show.  We have got a good amount of initial subscribers and I guess that I can say that the show is now "international" since we have 10 subscribers outside of the USA. Both shows have been submitted to the Zune Marketplace (in addition to iTunes) - rather basic process, you just need to download the Zune software (link to zune marketplace and click on the "submit a podcast" button on the side.  However I did not get anything in response from Zune, and as of the date of recording, nothing was showing up within the search in Zune. Podcast Directories: Still need to submit both shows to the Blackberry Podcast Directory.  I found a great resource to find a great list of podcast directories - has a list called "Directory of Directories".  They have listed a bunch of directories complete with some basic description of what type of requirements for getting listed as well as a link to the page to submit your feed.
