132: Exclusive Podcasts. An Oxymoron?
Is Apple going to start investing money in original podcasts? Spotify, Luminary, Stitcher, there are plenty of places that have podcasts that can only be consumed on a their own platform. Is that really a podcast? Does it matter if it's not?  Join Ray, Dave, Daniel and Stephanie Fuccio to answer the question of whether Apple investing in podcast programming would be a good thing either for them or the podcast space.

PR063: How Many Domain Names Do You Own?
  As podcasters, it's important to have your own website, a home for your show. But domains can be like tattoos, get one and you want more. And while I don't have any tattoos, I do have 12 domain names. Dave on the other hand has...97! So how many domain names do you have? Do you own the domain name for the name of your podcast? Should you? What do you do if the .com is already taken? +David Jackson, myself and others discuss how domain names and podcasting go hand in hand.

PR026 – Live-streaming Your Podcast

PR022 – The John Lee Dumas Effect
John Lee Dumas is getting a lot of attention these days; in part due to the money he is making with his podcast. No doubt his story and success are inspiring others to start their own podcast. In some cases, motivated to do exactly what John is doing.... making a lot of money. What's the danger in starting a podcast based on someone else's success?

PR007 – Podcast Promotion Challenges
How do find balance when it comes to producing content and then having to promote it via any number of ways (social networks, blogs, forums, etc.)? Have you ever been overwhelmed trying to keep up? Has the need to always be promoting your show in order to grow left you feeling burnt out on podcasting? We'll be discussing podcast promotion and how much is too much? How do you know if what you're doing is actually working and is it really worth your time? The discussion will be focused less on which new social platform is best for podcast promotion and instead will take a deeper look at why or why not to promote, how much and is it necessary to always jump on the next big thing (ex: Pinterest)? Roundtablers for this session will include +Daniel J. Lewis  +Rob Walch  +Daniel Hayes  +Mike Russell, and myself (Ray Ortega). Join us in the chat along with your fellow podcasters to share your experiences with balancing content creation with the challenges of promotion. Links mentioned: Dircetory of podcast directories
PR006 – Competition in Your Niche
We discuss the concept of "competition" as is applies to podcasters podcasting in the same niche. How much do you share with podcasts in your niche? Do you cross promote their shows? Do you have them as guests on your show or even co-host shows together? Is it possible to share audiences? Do you fear losing your audience to another show in your niche? What steps do you take to prevent this from happening? Do you think it's even necessary to compete or can working together actually benefit you? Are there any situations where it might actually be better to be a little competitive or even actively working against another show? Daniel J. Lewis, David Jackson, Corey Fineran and Nick Seuberling join me to discuss these issues and share our experiences with being part of a strong collective of podcasters in the same niche as well as our experience with competition or the competitive feeling.
PR005 – Podcasting Pet Peeves
On this Round, I talk to six podcasters (the largest Roundtable to date) about their podcasting pet peeves. Those things they see other podcasters doing that frustrate them. We also talk about things we've done wrong with our own podcasts and how we fixed those errors. Learn about the most common mistakes we see podcasters making on a daily basis and how to avoid those in your own show. Joining me for this Round was Daniel J. Lewis, Nick Seuberling, Daniel M. Clark, Martine Ellis, Jason Nagy and Cory Tibbits.
PR028 – Breaking the Mold
Is podcasting really any different than old media? Are we, as podcasters, simply falling into the mold created by media producers before us? Podcasting may be one of the few remaining truly free mediums. There are no rules, no gatekeepers, no censors, nothing telling you what you can and can't do with your show. So why does your podcast sound like all the rest or worse, like radio?;) This is a fun Roundtable in the spirit of the Roundtable's origins, podcasters sitting around on a group call discussing whatever comes to mind. We jump off from this topic of "breaking the mold" as it refers to content production styles and see where it goes. This Round features: +Ray Ortega, +Daniel J. Lewis, +Paul Blais, +Corey Fineran, and +Gary Fawcett. Circle Ray on Google Plus to be notified of future live recordings, to meet other podcasters and share your opinions in the chat!

PR078: Turning Listeners Into Subscribers
Podcasts can be heard in many places—your website, facebook, twitter, email, etc. Turning those listens into subscriptions can be a challenge but in a medium driven primarily by subscribers, most producers would be wise to focus on increasing their subscriber numbers.

Lewis, Dave Jackson, Glenn (The Geek) Hebert to discuss the challenges of turning listeners into subscribers.  You can subscribe to the RSS mailing list (http://eepurl.com/GnBwr) to get new Rounds delivered to your inbox automatically.

PR099: Podcast Discovery
Where can your podcast be found? Inspired by a tweet I made about not worrying about being on Spotify, we discuss their impact on podcasting and podcast discovery. I found someone doing well on Spotify and so we talk about how much that really matters as it pertains to all platforms. In fact we talk about being featured on any platform and how much difference it makes for your show being "discovered." What about the stats? Will your podcast grow to amazing numbers once you're finally featured on the front page of iTunes/Apple Podcasts!? Probably not but let's find out why. Join Ray, Daniel, Dave, and David Kadavy to discuss the places people find your podcast...or don't;) You can subscribe to the episode mailing list to get new Rounds delivered to your inbox automatically.

122: Is There Any Hope for Google Podcasts?
Google's latest entry into the podcast market, Google Podcasts, isn't converting the number of Android listeners we'd hoped. Or is it? Have you used it? What can we do to get more people using Google Podcasts and if we're not successful, do you think Google will pull the plug...once again?
