Summary: Why My Show Has Been Posting Late I start this episode by answering the #1 question that I've been asked over the past 24 hours. Whenever I don't get my Podcast Answer Man episode posted online by Friday afternoon, I get a lot of emails and notes vial social networks asking if there was a reason why I had not posted an episode of Podcast Answer Man for the week. I only briefly share the details of what has changed in my my podcast publishing podcast. If you are starting to find that the processing and publishing of your podcast episodes are keeping you from the joy of actually "creating the content," it may be time to consider delegating the processing part to someone else. I suggest that you check out my Virtual Assistant Podcast at http://VirtualAssistantPodcast.com for more helpful information in this area. How Many Libsyn Accounts Do I Need? Once you get the "podcasting bug," it may not be long before you find yourself with a desire to launch a second, or even third, new podcast. If you follow my advice of using Libsyn as your media hosting solution, you may find yourself wondering if you need to create a new Libsyn account for each new show or if you can actually use a single account for multiple shows. I provide the answer to this question in this episode. Nominations Open for the 7th Annual Podcast Awards I'm very excited to announce that Podcast Answer Man is a proud sponsor of the 7th Annual Podcast Awards at http://PodcastAwards.com. In this episode, I share some of my thoughts on how the Podcast Awards work. If you would like to nominate some of my podcasts, CLICK HERE for my category recommendations. Dynamic Vs Condenser Microphones I recently released my FREE TUTORIAL at http://LearnHowToPodcast.com. In video #3 of that tutorial, I talk about equipment options and share my thoughts about condenser microphones. I've received a lot of feedback as a result of the statements I made. Some have asked if they should rid of their condenser microphones that they already have and others have share what they have done to help reduce the amount of background noise. I'm not opposed to folks using a condenser microphone, if they have already invested in one. In this episode, I receive a call from Craig who shares what he has done with a cardboard box and t-shirts to help reduce the echo from his condenser microphone. I also share a side by side comparison of a dynamic microphone and a condenser microphone and how you can use two pillows and your gain control to get a better sound of a condenser microphone if that is what you have to work with. Katie Davis - Kids Literature Author Podcast Experience I am delighted to share an interview that I did wit Katie Davis, an author of children's books who entered the world of podcasting just over a year ago. In this episode, she shares some the exciting things that she has experienced as a result of doing her Brain Burps About Books podcast.
