Welcome back to a brand new season of Podcasting 101!
In this weeks episode, Rob Walch, VP of Podcast Relations over at Libsyn stops by to talk a bunch of new things happening in the podcasting world. His advice, "if you're not on Spotify, you don't care about your podcast!"
Rob updates us on how to use Apple Analytics, as well as why Alexa's new Alexa Skills is going to be a game changer for your podcast!
We also discuss the death of Soundcloud, the life expectancy of Anchor and at the time of this recording... putting google play (for podcasting) out to pasture. This is of course before Google announced it was putting in some concentrated effort to help put more podcasts in more ears in the coming ears via all of their Google platforms.
I also announce something new that will be taking place during this season of Pod 101. That's right, starting next week micro episodes of Professor Pod's Helpful Tips & Tricks to Starting a Podcast, will debut. Every other week I'll be releasing an episode focusing on a particular aspect of podcasting that will hopefully help new podcasters face their fears, give them the information they need, and they can go off and start their own podcasts!
Thanks for listening, if you like what you hear, please feel free to spread the word!

In this episode of Podcasting 101, Neil and Annaleis join me to talk about the wonderful world of Podcasting. From building a great community of listeners and friends to sharing not only the fun day to day events in their lives, but also the sometimes scary and tragic and very personal events in your life as well.
Neil and Annaleis are a married couple who shares their world with the world, and your world is better for it. Listen as they take you on a quick trip to target, or maybe even to Jamaica!
I hope you enjoy this episode of Podcasting 101. I'd love some feed back about the show! You can tweet to me (Jason the Angry Ginger) at @MonkeyPooStu or @Podcaster101.
Thanks for listening! ...and to those that support the show over at Patreon.com/monkeypoostudios you rock as well!

Dave Jackson returns to the podcast to discuss the different ways people include their personal lives in their podcast. We also chat having a healthy balance between podcasting and the rest of your life.
Once Dave takes off... we bring in Elsie, who is coming down from the mountains and into civilization. Just ignore the dog in the back ground... for she's calling from the road and we are doing a live broadcast so all quiet like studio stuff is thrown out the window for this episode.
Elsie talks a bit about the 2017 changes at Libsyn. She doesn't announce a Stat's app... but we threaten to spread the word about it anyway. We also talk about the Power of Podcasting and How it's changed each of our lives!
Dan Evans, Cohost of the Deconstructing Dad podcast (yes... it's part of the Monkey Poo Studios family of podcasts) and Courtney Caulkins of the Quadcast Podcast join in on the discussion, while Neighbor Cole from the 7 Days a Geek podcast (yes... this one is part of Monkey Poo Studios too) moderates the chatroom.
**This is the second hour of the LIVE celebration of podcasting we host each year in October known as Podtoberfest. While the episode may have been recorded previously, the information, topics and discussion is timely and shouldn't be missed**

This episode was recorded live during the annual Podcasting Celebration event known as Podtoberfest that I do every year. In this first hour, Jacquelyn Landgraf from "It Makes a Sound" joins us to discuss her new Audio Drama. She tells us how the project first came together and about all of the hard work that goes into producing an episode. During that conversation, friend of the show, and amazing podcaster, Dave Jackson of "The School of Podcasting" calls in to join the show as well.
This is a fun and fantastic hour all about podcasting!
Thanks so much for listening and for all of your continued support dear listener!
