Podcast Speaks!! April 29, 30 with Jane M Powers

 

PodcastSpeaks is almost here.  I can’t wait for this exciting 2-day event with the amazing Jane M Powers.

I met Jane last year at a Synapse meeting.  Our meeting was one of the serendipitous benefits to a new business culture full of online Zoom video meetings.  I know, I felt Zoom fatigue as much as anyone.  But after it had settled in, I started to wonder how we’d go back to the old normal.  I was meeting people from all over the world every week!

When Jane and I got together we found we not only had a lot of interests in common (the outdoors, mountain biking, an insatiable desire to constantly learn, low tolerance for b.s.), but that we possessed skill sets that complimented each other.  She was great a turning skills into money by jumping all-in and getting to the heart of people’s passions, and I was good at NONE of that.  Well, truth be told, my background in audio and recording, radio, creative services in the ad world, and the aforementioned insatiable desire to constantly learn fueled my interest in podcasts and podcasting.  I truly believe that podcasts are one of the greatest messaging, branding, self-discovery and lead generation tools available to businesses and non-profits.  And Jane agreed.  So we came together to offer PODCAST SPEAKS.

PodcastSpeaks is an online, virtual event being held April 29 and 30 to teach businesses how they can use podcasts to speak (literally!) directly to customers, potential customers, contemporaries, collaborators, sponsors and networkers.

If you’re a small business person, entrepreneur or anyone who wants to control the narrative surrounding their business, ask yourself a few questions:

Do you have a story, mission, movement, or message?

Are you passionate about growing a profitable business?

Would you like to effectively engage and connect with audiences?

Do you want to easily create lasting content?

Do you want to confidently convert 5 or 6-figures from every stage?

Do you want to successfully generate a stream of leads?

The answers are obvious.  Click here to make a fully refundable deposit to hold your space and attend this free event.

To hear more about the event, listen to this episode of The Good Eye Podcast with Jane as my guest.

Audacity Update

I’m sort of old-school when it comes to equipment and software.  I don’t like subscriptions.  I rarely sell old gear.  And I don’t really take advantage of “free trials”.  That said, I learned Audacity, the free DAW for audio editing and mixing, because a number of my podcasting clients were using and I found it to be surprisingly able.  (I’m a Pro Tools guy which brings its own special brand of heartache.  But at least their support sucks!  I digress.) There ARE some things about Audacity that I’m not keen on such as how when you want to record in multitrack mode you select the number of tracks you want then just hit record.  I know.  That sounds user-friendly and logical, but I like to set up my session and inspect it before rolling.  Like I said, I’m old school.  But there’s a new version of Audacity out and the reviews have been positive – good news for podcasters and project studio producers who are not as old-school and are just fine using a free program.  Here’s Music Radar’s take on it.  Give me a shout if you don’t want to deal with any of this when producing your podcast.  Some folks understandably feel they have enough on their plate with the ideation, hosting, interviewing and promoting of their podcast.

Good Eye Podcast Ep44 Andrea Starr – Go Forward Team Ride

Today’s guest is Andrea Starr, CEO of the Forward Foundation.  Andrea and I talk about the upcoming cycling event to benefit the Forward Foundation which provides assistance and resources for single mothers in crisis.  The event is October 24th and will take place in two forms: the organized ride from Bryan Park to Ashland and back, and the virtual event which will take place virtually wherever participants want to do their activities.  Virtual participants can ride, walk, run, swim, dance or do just about anything they want as long as they sign up for the event and use the hashtag #goforwardtogether on social media.

This is the first Go Forward event, but the plan is to have it again next year and for years to come when we can hopefully all get together to support the Forward Foundation and celebrate.
