Justin Worsham joins us this week to talk about all things podcasting. Justin is a married, On the road comedian, and father of 2. Like all comedians these days, Justin figured he needed a podcast to continue building his audience as well as use it for getting "Radio Ready". His life is built around his kids, his act is built around his kids...so why not have the podcast follow down that path?
This guy is a born podcaster. He's funny, quick thinking...and like all good comedians, he's got really good stories to tell. He's candid about the difficulties of both building an audience as well as getting that audience to pony up a couple of dollars a month.
If you've got your heart set on monitizing your show, Justin lets it be known that it's not an easy task.
Great advice, Great stories and a lot of fun for ya on this episode of Podcasting 101! ...just don't touch Dad's stereo!
Also, I've got 5 spots open for April's Podcasting 101 class. If you or someone you know is thinking about starting a podcast and needs a little 1 on 1 coaching, please reach out to me. My rate is affordable and spots will fill fast. Contact me for further info.

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, or still dialing into your internet, you've heard of Crowd Source Funding. Made popular by sites like Kickstarter, Indie GoGo and GoFundMe.com. Well, there is a new Crowd Funding sheriff in town and his name is Podfund!
Podfund runs and looks very similar to the other funding sites you may have used or checked out in the past...only this one is geared specifically for You, a fellow podcaster!
Robert, the creator and owner of Podfund.com was nice enough to sit down, over skype, and fill us in on all the details of creating and maintaining a podcast campain. If this is something that interests you then stick around for this interview.
In the Podcast Tip of the day, I introduce you to a site called DonateYourAccount.com. Which is a cool site that allowes your Facebook and/or Twitter followers to donate thier account for you to spread your message through. Now, your followers already know how crazy you can be with your promotion, so they do this graciously by allowing only so many Tweets or Facebook entries to be used across thier timelines. You're followers can pick a couple times a day/week or Month.
If you have some loyal followers and they are always retweeting your stuff...this could be a good way to get them to help out...at no extra effort from them.

On this episode of Podcasting 101, we talk with Catie Lazuraus of Employee of the Month fame. This is a New York based live comedy show. When her staff isn't tending to the building of her own personal moat, complete with organically fed gator's she keeps them busy with all the behind the scenes stuff that goes into making a podcast...even if it is really just one man...in a van...down by the river!
Before interviewing Catie, I offer a podcast tip. A resource all podcasters should be using. What was once known as CommentCast, a Mac only iTunes comment aggregator is now a fully functioning web based program for Mac and Window users called ReviewCast.
Also, if you're a podcaster looking for a free Voicemail set up. Checkout a really easy to use site called K7. It's a small seattle based complany that gives you a free phone number to use. Once you set up your account and give it your email address it will send all of your voicemails to you in MP3 form, straight to your inbox. Pretty handy huh?
We also speak about the whole Podcast Patent thing for just a moment. If you are a podcast supporter or a podcaster, then you must check out this site. Listen to a small clip (video) from Adam Carolla himself. Help keep podcasting ours!

In today's episode I sit down with Geoffrey Welchman, host of The Inverse Delirium. If you're a fan of podcasts such as We're Alive or Welcome to Night Vale, other radio play type podcasts, then I suggest you give this show a listen. It's NPR with a dry but very witty sense of humor!
Geoffrey will admit that he's not the most savvy marketer, and not all of us podcasters are. But he does give great tips on keeping to a schedule. How he keeps things fresh in his podcast, and how he's brought in guests such as Kevin Pollack and Lewis Black to name a few.
This is a great interview with a very down to earth guy who's not looking for a way to make a living off of his podcast, he's just simply hoping to entertain. Whether it be a couple experiencing Netflix adultry, an inside look at the Voice Over Olympics or a reporter stuck on a chunk of ice with Scientists at war with a brutal faction of Walrus's. This sketch comedy show has a little something for everyone!
