This episode is a special one for sure. As many of you who have been listening to the podcast, follow me on the socials or participate in #PodRevDay know, I am a huge fan of Podchaser, the IMDB of Podcasting. But some folks I talk to outside of the U.S. have expressed concerns about some Podchaser features not working as well in the country that they lived in. So, what else could I do but ask Bradley Davis, the Co-founder/CEO Podchaser on the show to ask him some globally minded Podchaser questions.  Bradley and I cover accessibility and language issues, combined geographic & language search dream functionality, the push and pull of keeping podcasting open and the messiness that organically ensues and so much more. What we intentionally don’t cover are Podchaser or Bradley’s podcasting origin stories. Why? Because they have already been well covered on other podcasts this year (Podlovers Asia, Inspired Money and The New Media Show), so I am instead adding to these episodes in the show notes at
In this conversation we talk with Doris Hammerschmidt of Medienproduktion München about the two waves of podcasting in Germany, the term "podcast industry", what it's like to write a book about such a fast changing industry, exciting new audio tools and the possible future of podcasting in Germany.  This episode is brought to you by HearShare Productions. We help create podcasts that engage, inform and inspire. our September Podcast Accountability Group Coaching sessions: show notes are available here:
We are firmly seated in the United States for this episode. Well, I (Steph) am currently in Tirana, Albania (check on IG or on Twitter for more about this) but my guest, Aseloka Smith of the Colored Girl Beautiful podcast, is in the U.S. With Geopats Podcasting we hope to shake up your podcast creation process by listening to how others use the medium around the world and Aseloka will definitely get your creative juices flowing with what and how she has done The Colored Girl Beautiful. Also inspiring is our sponsor for this episode, Podcorn. They are a marketplace connecting Podcasters to Advertisers. There is more information about their services at 14:23 in this episode but for now I just want to say thanks Podcorn, for the sponsorship.  Although Aseloka was touched by the places in Latin America that she lived earlier in her life, it is time her travel to engage with African-American singer, political activist and the Author of the book The Colored Girl Beautiful (TCGB) that inspired the podcast, E. Azalia Hackley ,  that brings her on the show.Actually, I became aware of Aseloka and her podcast when I saw her on the Podcasters Roundtable. She is one of those people that expresses ideas in such a down to earth and insightful way that I knew I had to meet her. You all know that this podcast is my excuse to meet people I admire, right? There is a link in the show notes to that appearance.  During this conversation, Aseloka and I dig into the emotional, racial and creative layers woven into her podcast. And there are many. We also tap into the practical side of creating a podcast because the fact that Aseloka did the Google Podcast Creators Program, a Master’s degree and worked a full time job while creating season 1 of TCGB is nothing less than amazing and I am pretty sure we can all learn from her. A special shout out needs to go out to Nicole Hill, the Producer of TCGB. You’ll know why after listening to this conversation.   Geopats Podcasting's podcast host is Captivate FM: An insanely Creator oriented hosting service with personality, marketing know how and more.

We hope to shake up your podcast creation process by hearing how others use the medium around the world. Today, we are headed to India, to talk to Vishnu Padmanabhan from the Writer and Geek podcast. Vishnu is a Podcaster by night (literally) and an Engineer by day but admits that photography would be his alternate career, if possible. If you’re a fan of the Geopats Coffee podcast then you’re familiar with Vishnu’s Co-Host and brother, Shankar.   Vishnu and I covered everything that you can in podcasting, including: their podcast setup, dividing up tasks with a Co-Host (even if they are your brother!), podcasts in India, editing tech and tips, audience, outsourcing, podcast hosts, Podcasters community in India, advice for new Podcasters and more. If you like this episode, feel free to buy me a coffee: Podcasting's podcast host is Captivate FM: An insanely Creator oriented hosting service with personality, marketing know how and more. So yea, I highly recommend them, lol. The full show notes are available at:
Kevin Mwachiro of Nipe Story Podcast is a powerful storyteller. Listening to his audio stories is akin to listening to a captivating audio dance. In 2017 he launched Nipe Story, a story-telling podcast which produces audio versions of short-story fiction from the African continent. He is also queer rights activist.More info:
In this episode we tap into Mateusz's podcasting knowledge, Spotify's role in the German podcasting scene and the possible future of podcasting. More info:

Eric started lifting weights 15 years ago and it is now an essential part of his life and the main topic of his and his girlfriend's podcast “Planet Powerlifting”. In their podcast they hope to make powerlifting more accessible to outsiders and shed light on as many aspects of the sport as possible. Along with the basics of their podcasting life in Berlin, Germany we cover unique aspects of the podcasting scene in Germany as a whole as well. More information here:
In support of what's happening in the United States at this moment this is a podcast blackout episode. To find other podcast blackout episodes, follow the #podcastblackout hashtag on Twitter. Thank you to the folks of the Cult 45 Podcast,, who started this podcast blackout episode act. The reason many Podcasters are replacing regular podcast episodes with this type of episode is to recognize the lives of black men and women killed by the police since Eric Garner's death in 2014. This is a reading of their names. More here: 
Time and time again I hear my global friends complain that it's hard to find podcasts that are NOT from the U.S. As an American Podcaster (an Expat Podcaster, but still) this is always a sticky conversation for me because although I listen to a mix of podcasts from around the world, the U.S. is home country. So, while I can use these podcasts to stay up to date on what is happening there, I understand that not everyone needs or wants as much audio content coming from there. In fact, part of why the Global Podcasting episodes on Geopats started was because of a desire to share info about non-U.S. Podcasters and podcasting experiences with you. There is so much out there in the world, in English, and our ear buds are craving to hear it. It sounds like Norman Chella has a similar goal as mine but with the Asian scene as his more specific focus. More info:

 “...they say that it gives them a perspective of Germany from outsiders eyes. That was a surprise for me.” Shaun, Host of Expat Life Germany The Germany Experience (formerly Expat Life Germany) is one of those podcasts that you listen to as you are doing something else (for me I was cleaning the apartment) and then find yourself stopping, grabbing a drink and sitting down to listen. Why? Because the authentic, thinky conversations that Host Shaun has with his guests are so calm and intriguing that you want to give them your full attention. This is exactly why I had to reach out to Shaun and ask him to join us on this new Expat Podcasters show. Full show notes available here: 
What do you do as an expat when your life goal is to collect and share experiences and information? You start a podcast! And that is exactly what American expat in Germany Nicole Palazzo did just after her first year in Freiburg, Germany. We recorded this mini episode on the new Podbean Live app, which was in Beta version. There were some technical issues but we pushed through and I think there is so much useful and interesting information in Nicole's audio story. In fact, she is going to come back and in the future and update us on her expat podcasting life and adventures. Hurrah. ​More info:
