David Hooper is an American marketing professional and broadcaster. His latest book is Big Podcast – Grow Your Podcast Audience, Build Listener Loyalty, and Get Everybody Talking About Your Show. He can be heard weekly on the syndicated radio show, Music Business Radio.
The National Association of Broadcasters released a PSA on coronavirus (download it for use on your podcast) this week, so I thought it would be a good idea to talk about the overall concept of Public Service Announcements and how you can use existing PSAs or do something similar on your own to change opinions and create a specific outcome. Note that the PSA within this episode can be used not only on your podcast but anywhere you release material online. I attached it to a short video about coronavirus on Instagram to double-down on getting accurate information about this situation out to the public. The PSA is a powerful concept and goes way beyond coronavirus or "advertising." It's easy to do with as little as an extra sentence or two, so I hope you'll consider options for your podcast.

It seems the whole world is on "lockdown" right now due to COVID-19 fears. But on a positive side, podcasters have an opportunity to help this situation. The CDC site is where to get accurate COVID-19 info. Take memes and other info you get via social media or Donald Trump with skepticism. Listen to people who know – scientists and doctors.  Don't Let Your Podcast Be Ignored - Download my free "Audience Attraction Cheat Sheet" to get 25 podcast episode (and segment) templates.       
I finally (!!!) finished recording and editing the audiobook version of Big Podcast – Grow Your Podcast Audience, Build Listener Loyalty, and Get Everybody Talking About Your Show. Then I ran into an issue... Because I was punching in and editing some of the pauses, some of the "breathing noise" got chopped. And that sounds weird. I knew it might be an issue, and it probably wouldn't have been a big deal had this been a book for people with a "normal" understanding of audio. But you're a podcaster and you have a more advanced ear. So I've got a little bit more work to do on this... I thought I might be crazy, so I sent a clip to Dave Jackson from School of Podcasting to get his opinion. He sent back the clip after running it through a "debreath" plugin, which did get rid of the breathing sounds, but took a little too much out. In this episode, I play "before" and "after" clips and let you judge for yourself. LESSON LEARNED: You can only do so much with your audio once it's on tape, so make sure you get something great on tape. Don't rely on automation of fixing things after the fact, because you may not have what you need to work with.
