041 Podcast Answer Man – Pitfalls of The Live Format!

In this episode, I share my concerns about those who attempt to start podcasting using the Live Show format. I was shocked at how this almost came out as sort of a “rant.” I didn't intend for it to come out that way. I'm wondering if this might spark an ongoing conversation on the topic.

In the episode, I shared my suggestion that using a cheap microphone and recording into AUDACITY would bring you a much higher quality of sound than that of recording into a phone line. Not only that, but I prefer listening to a podcast when the host(s) are pretending that they are speaking to, or for the benefit of, ME, the downloading listener. I don't get this same feeling from many of the shows that focus so much of their attention on those who have joined them live.

It's just been something going through my head I guess and I am not sure I delivered my thoughts well in this episode, but I got it off my chest and we'll see what comes of it.
