Summary: One Event To Rule Them All I open this week's episode explaining why I am thrilled that NMX has made the decision to do a single event each year. Many of you know that I have been working hard to put together an amazing podcasting track for the NMX (New Media Expo) event that is coming to Las Vegas on January 6th, 7th and 8th. I'm most excited about the fact that I've been able to get my own podcasting hero, Leo Laporte, to not only give a Keynote, but also to emcee the ceremony for the 8th Annual Podcast Awards. If you are a podcaster, you simply must make it to NMX in January. Ford bloggers and podcasters, I simply recommend the purchase of the 3 Day Content Creator pass and the Virtual Ticket add-on.

Jim called to say that he's looking forward to purchasing the new 27" iMac when it is made available for purchase. He's concerned about the ability to do a mix-minus with the system since it does not have a separate line-in jack. In the episode, I suggest the purchase of a Griffin iMic USB Sound card. (Affiliate Link)   Getting Phone Interference During Interviews Shane called to say that he's been using his mobile phone to do telephone interviews and has been getting a lot of interference during the calls lately. I share a few thoughts about what steps he can take to improve his chances of getting better audio quality during his telephone interviews.   Do I need A Pop Filter For The Heil? Josh wanted to know if he really needs a pop-filter if he purchases the Heil PR-40 microphone. Have a listen to the episode to hear my thoughts on this topic.   Thoughts On Multiple Twitter Acounts Marshall called to ask about my thoughts on having multiple Twitter Accounts if you have more than one podcast. I share many thoughts on this topic in the episode. I do suggest that you ask yourself.... "Self? What do I hope to accomplish with this new ID?"   Should I create a separate website for each podcast in my network? This question comes up often. Today, I do play Daniel's version of the question in the episode. However, I simply referred him to listen to episode 211 of Podcast Answer Man for my thoughts on this topic.   My Updated Apple Podcasts App Review I've attempted to switch over to the Apple Podcasts app on several occasions in the past. However, each time, I found glitches that I simply could not overlook. However, this time around, with all the latest updates that they have made, I have made switch and I believe that I'll stick with it this time. Have a listen to this episode to hear the many reasons why I made the switch and to hear the features I love most and to hear about what I hope they will improve soon.   Shop With B&H Photo & Support Podcast Answer Man I am thrilled about the relationship that I have formed with the folks at B&H Photo, Video, & Pro Audio.
