JOE-PARDO

Joe Pardo is a podcaster with a passion for hosting great events, that’s why back in December of 2014 he started setting up the Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference. The initial idea was to bring podcasters together for meetups and through Google Hangouts, and then to eventually grow into conferences. After seeing the fervent interest in having a podcast (exclusive) conference in the northeast, Joe Pardo jumped on the opportunity to make it happen.

We had a great conversation with Joe about how both hard and exciting it is to start podcasting, and how social media and networking are fundamental to turning your podcast into a real success. Read the interview to know more about the event and how to being part of it!

The Benefits Of Transcribing Your Podcast

If you’re wondering why you should transcribe your podcast, start by considering that the easiest way to find something on the internet (any kind of media – audio, video, images) is through text. By providing a text version, or a transcript, of your podcast’s episodes you can improve its accessibility, shareability, and be able to repurpose that valuable content later on.  It also improves your listeners’ experience, giving them an alternative way to consume your content when tuning in isn’t possible.

“Text is the secret. Converting podcast recordings into a transcript makes it possible for podcast producers to give listeners a better experience.” (Observer.com)

Moreover, as mentioned before, since web searches are text based, a transcript will open up new opportunities; you’ll be able to easily redact your content into blog posts, articles, presentations, and even books. Even your listeners will be able to quickly quote and share what they find valuable from your episode. Let’s take a deeper look at how transcriptions can benefit your podcast:

3 Easy Steps for Submitting Your RSS Feed to iTunes

One of the reasons why podcasts are so hyped and popular these days is that once they’re online, you can share them everywhere and through any platform or device. This means that once you’ve published the newest episode of your podcast, thanks to your RSS feed, you’ll be able to get it automatically shared on every platform or network you’ve set it on, including iTunes, which is still one of the largest web services for listening to podcasts.

An RSS feed (Really Simple Syndication), which is set up like a URL, sends regularly updated or changing content from say a blog or a podcast, to other web services. A “podcast feed URL” is a document which contains all of your show’s information, and if you want to submit a podcast to iTunes, you’ll need to have it hosted on a website that is able to generate its RSS feed. The way it works is that every time an update is made to your podcast, the RSS feed gets automatically updated as well. Then, whoever is subscribed to your podcast’s RSS feed will be automatically notified that there’s new content. If you’ve submitted it to iTunes, or any other podcatchers that accepted RSS feed submissions, it will show up there, too.

What if you don’t have a website set up for generating RSS feeds? Well, no problem: you can set up your podcast on Spreaker, and it will automatically generate the RSS feed for you. In fact, we give you the ability to share both your Show and Profile RSS feeds. To do so, here are the three steps you need to follow:
