Next level for TPD!

So, it appears as if The Podcast Digest has moved into the next level!  In the last 3 days more of you have listened and shared the show since this whole fun ride began in the beginning of September!  It's awesome and I can't thank all of you enough!

In my personal and professional life, I'm always looking for ways to improve and how to take things to the next level.  I want to do that with TPD as well.  But I'd love to do it with your input.  You guys are the reason I do this, because I hope that someone out there likes to hear my take and opinions on some great shows and I hope you are adding them to your subscription list.  So the question is "what's next?"  I talk about this in the end of my latest episode (Ep. 9 - Today in Dana - scroll down to listen!).  So, leave a comment on this post or shoot me an email and let me know.  Show I look into interviews, what about guest hosts bringing their own show recommendations, how about a "summary or highlight" show of new released episodes of shows I've already recommended?  Or, as someone emailed me this morning - Don't change a thing!  As I said, my default position is to think that something could always get better, but can it?

Here's one thing I'd like to do:  Add intro, closing and/or segment or transition music.  On my first episode, I played around with it.  But ultimately didn't like it that much, and the attribution aspect of something I found online scared me to death.  One time I fiddled around in Garageband to see if I could do it myself, but I have no real talent there!  So if you know of any music that I might be able to use - especially if you made it yourself - send it along and I'll be happy to give you a shoutout on show and include a link to your site in my show notes.

Thanks again for your time!

Breaking Through!

So, I've listened to many podcasts about podcasting and for us newer folks, I hear many people only release 7 episodes and then end up quitting!  Or putting a show on a long hiatus!  Not The Podcast Digest!  I'll be back this evening for an all brand new Episode complete with 2 awesome show recommendations!

Last week's show really exploded!  And if you listened, or you are new here to the show, I want to thank you for taking the time to spend a few minutes with me and talk about podcasting and some of the awesome shows available to us listeners out there!  It's been a fun ride so far, and I'm looking forward to more and more content for you each week!

Don't forget to follow the show on Twitter - @poddigest.  It's the primary tool I use for announcements, what I'm listening to, retweet other shows or important info and generally just the best way to keep up with all things TPD!  However, I'd also love some folks to "like" the show on Facebook (link in black bar above).  If you are a big "Facebooker" all the show announcements come out there too!

And don't forget Itunes and Stitcher reviews (again, links above)!  A quick 5 star and a sentence or two about the show really goes a long way to helping others find out about the show.  And I thank you!  Big Time!

Continual amazement!

I have been so pleasantly surprised, each and every time I release a new Episode, just how awesome the response has been!  So many fellow podcasters are retweeting my show announcements!  I've been trying to thank each and everyone of you there, but if I've missed any of you, please know that I do greatly appreciate it!

Episode 6 is one of my favorites so far, as I truly do love S. Anthony Thomas' work and with Serial launching tomorrow, I hope that covering it on my show allowed some of you to jump on it when it comes out tomorrow.

I'm starting to get ideas for Episode 7 already and I can't wait to bring the next one to you guys!

And don't forget, if you can, a review on Itunes would be absolutely huge to me, guys.. hit the link in the black bar above!

Episode 6 incoming soon!

Hello all!

Been a busy week for me, so I apologize for the lack of updates!  I had a gig over the weekend and have been fighting a terrible cold (pretty much hit me directly after recording Ep. 5!).  But I'm feeling ok now and committed to bringing all of you a new episode of the Podcast Digest this week!  I'm finalizing my outline now and hoping to be able to record and release tonight!  However, I will allow myself a 24 hour buffer...  Thursday at the latest - promise!

And for episode 6, I'll be trying a little something new... don't want to give it a way (and to be honest it's not a HUGE deal) but it is something new!  As always, thank you so much for listening!  And don't forget, an Itunes review wouldn't hurt!
