In case you haven’t checked it out, we talk about all sorts of awesome internet stuff. Episode #23 just came out, so you should check it out and report back. There will be a test.
Mitch, Hugh, Chris, and I got together last week at the Carnegie Deli in New York to record a Media Hacks episode during O’Reilly’s TOC Conference. You can listen to it here (and subscribe with iTunes here).
Everyone else ordered pastrami on rye. I ordered the club sandwich. You can see the results in the photo to the right.
Feel the power of the sandwich. I know I did.
Chris, Mitch, and I were on a podcast last week that we hope will become a regular thing. We’re titling it the Media Hacks podcast, because it’s about media, and
because we’re hacks because you’ll hopefully get some cool tips out of the recordings we’ll doing.
Here’s the first episode– it included us three this time, but we’ll be adding CC, Chris Penn, and Hugh McGuire as core members in the next episodes. We’d like it to become a kind of Gillmor Gang style thing, with rotating guests, etc. It’s been fun so far, we really hope you tune in. :)
Update: It didn’t take long for the thing to be up before Mitch got a couple of comments about the swearing I do on the show. I have to say, it shocks me every time somebody says something, because I seriously do not notice that this happens, nor did I think it a big deal when I listened again. I hope you find the ability to look past that and into the actual content. Thx.
The most downloaded show I’ve ever made was this one, a totally non-hiphop mixtape style thing I made about two years ago. People still ask me where the file is, how can they get it, etc., so I figured I’d make it available.
P.S.: Portishead’s new album Third can be streamed in full at Last.fm right now. Yeah, I know I’m old, thanks.
The RSS feed is still here.
Also, for the next 3 months or so, Nokia is sponsoring the show. They sent me an N810 and I chat about it a bit in the thing. You can use the code “inoveryourhead” if you’re going to buy one, it’ll give you a 15% rebate on it (which is cheaper than Amazon).
So the plan is to do them every 10-14 days or so… feel free to harass me if I don’t (Podshow will, otherwise). :)
How the rich control your education, being a cyborg, and the chessboard of life.
So yeah, I don’t want to say how, but I came across this book Michael and Leesa talked about on their blogs, titled Podcasting For Fun and Profit. I don’t want to link to it because, you know, it’s a trashy ebook that tells me I can make $13,000 in 67 minutes.
I’m sure you can find it if you really want to.
Anyway, it’s the usual ebook– filled with sales pitches for other ebooks, obvious advice, etc. etc. The majority of it is really just basic “about podcasting” stuff anyone could learn by searching Google (which is likely what he did). Then, on page 64 come the eight pages of groundbreaking monetization tips:
- Advertise stuff
- Advertise your stuff
- Advertise other people’s stuff
- Make people pay for podcasts (!)
You get the point. Don’t even ask me why I’m blogging this… if you’ve been to any podcast conferences recently, it isn’t news to you that people are trying to sell us useless stuff. :)
… the iTunes Store sure is down a lot.
The Seven Plagues of Modern Man, new tattoos, New York and Toronto are piece of shit cities. Etc.
