Random Plug of The Week
This week's random plug of the week goes out to the Busy Mom's Survival Guide with PJ Jonas. If you check out her show and like it, please be sure to let PJ know you heard about her show from The Podcast Answer Man!

Problem Getting Audio Clips Into Skype Call
Chris called in to say that he used to be able to use a Sound Mixer audio driver on his Windows 7 computer to get audio clips, played from his computer, to go out to his Skype calls. When he recently installed Windows, he no longer had that sound driver and wanted to know if I had any thoughts on how to get audio clips to play out to the Skype calls. In the episode, I share two possible solutions based upon the criteria that he provided.

Interview With Rob Walch
I always enjoy talking with Rob Walch about the latest things happening over at Libsyn. In this week's podcast, I share a recorded interview we did earlier this week.

New Libysn Stats Algorithm: Rob shared how Libsyn has recently changed their they way the process their stats and how and why they will be even more accurate than ever before.

Getting Geeky: Rob and I did get a little geeky in this interview. Rob shared some important information about which Libsyn Media URL to use when promoting your .mp3 file. Also, we went into a pretty lengthy discussion as a followup to last week's episode where Stephanie had asked about adding a 2nd show to her Libsyn Account.

Rob's Speaking At BlogWorld: Rob is actually leading two panel sessions for me at the BlogWorld & New Media Expo. I encourage you to attend the following two sessions:

iTunes Ratings & Reviews Marketing Research
I started Podcast Answer Man in December of 2006. Until April 2012, I don't think I've ever asked anyone provide a rating and/or review for this show in iTunes. I've decided that I am going to begin asking for my community to please go to my iTunes Listing to both rate and review Podcast Answer Man.

My goal is to see if I can keep Podcast Answer Man as the #1 Show in the Podcasting Category and to see if I might be able to maintain a position within the top 50 podcasts in the Technology category.
