For those of you looking for new ways to increase the number of people who listen and/or watch your podcast this Round will provide well over 50 different strategies for increasing your podcast's audience. Presented back in January 2014 at the New Media Expo, this panel was originally planned to be reposted on the Podcasters' Roundtable site at podcastersroundtable.com/nmx14.

When you start a podcast you become much more than a podcaster. You've crossed the line from media consumer to media producer. So have you taken your new talents outside the "studio?" Perhaps you've been on TV, written an article for a newspaper or magazine, or given presentations at a conference all as a result of having a podcast. Join me(Ray Ortega) +Daniel J. Lewis +David Jackson +Corey Fineran and +Wayne Brekke others to discuss what other kinds of content your podcast can lead to.

Podcast award season is here and that means asking your audience for votes, in some cases, constantly asking them. How do you deal with this as a podcaster...as a listener? Are we asking too much or is it a great way to show your support of a show? Beyond awards, we're repeatedly faced with asking our audience for all many different things. We ask for reviews, ratings, feedback, sign-ups, and a whole host of other things that we put into every episode. So how much is too much? Join me (Ray Ortega), +David Jackson, +Nick Seuberling +Corey Fineran +Izabela Russell and +Ileane Smith to discuss the balance between asking your audience to support your show and wearing them out asking for too much.

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.
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.
You have a podcast, that's probably why you're watching the Roundtable and you've probably recorded a bunch of episodes but do you create any other content to support your podcast?  Join Ray, Dave, Jamie Eads, and Jessica Kupferman to discuss other ways to grow your podcast through content creation (e.g. should you be blogging too?). We'll also discuss news and stories in the podcasting space. You can subscribe to the episode mailing list to get new Rounds delivered to your inbox automatically.

Is podcasting expensive? When you are starting out, podcasting is relatively affordable and there are all kinds of ways to save money if necessary. However, if you succeed in moving a lot of people to your podcast and your podcast's website, the price can go up; a lot. Join Ray, Daniel, Dave, Rob Greenlee, Todd Cochrane and Glenn Hebert to discuss the not so obvious costs of podcasting.

Ever receive a negative comment regarding your podcast? How did it feel? How did you respond? Certainly, if you've been podcasting for any significant amount of time there's no doubt that indeed you've received a negative iTunes review, a "bad" comment on your website or a disparaging remark on your podcast's Facebook page. Perhaps it happened after your first episode! As podcasters we put our content and ourselves out into the world for anyone to see, hear and comment on. This inevitability means someone isn't going to like what you say, how you say it or misinterpret your meaning and share their dislike with the world. And in some cases they might be right. But how do you deal with it? On this Round, myself (Ray Ortega), +Daniel J. Lewis +David Jackson +Max Flight, +Robert Chazz Chute, +Erik Fisher, and +Gary Fawcett discuss the negative feedback we've received over our years of podcasting and what we did about it. And trust me, we didn't always make the right decision. How do you deal with negative comments about your podcast? Share your experiences below in the comments as you watch along.

  One of the cool parts about podcasting is that the show is truly yours. You decide what to say, how it looks/sounds, where to publish and hundreds of other decisions that make up your podcast. But with no must-do rules to follow there is a large continuum of quality content in podcasting. So what are the podcasting best practices; those elements common to most podcasts that make up a good show? Hopefully as our show grows over time we glean podcasting nuggets from other podcasters that make our show that much better. On this Round join me (+Ray Ortega), +Daniel J. Lewis, and +Dave Jackson, , +Charles McFall, and +Jon Rojas in a discussion about the most common elements that go into a quality podcast production.
