When do you know it’s time to call it quits on a podcast? When you don’t have time to do a quality show. When you don’t have the motivation to do a quality show. When it’s just no fun anymore. When it’s not profitable anymore (if you podcast for profit). When you have run out of things to say on your subject of choice. When your topic is no longer …
 
I had the opportunity to talk to Dave Jones from Podcast Index and the Podcasting 2.0 show about PodPing and other podcasting stuff. We talked about the comments we made about PodPing on the Podcast Insider show with Angelo Mandato, CIO of RawVoice Inc. / Blubrry Podcasting. Also a lot of other podcast related things. It was a fun conversation for …
 
content:encoded tag – Today I talk about Episode Notes tags (Show Notes). This is part 1 of an experiment. Please email me mike@mikedell.com and let me know what app or apps you see this in and what tags (at the top of this text) you see and where. This is a LINK to something cool. https://mikedell.com This podcast is posted on PodcastHelpDesk.com.…
 
One thing you can always say about how podcasting works, it’s always changing. The last couple of weeks it seems that there is a sort of shift in how it works on basic levels. Or, does it work the same and only some apps are changing? Apple changed Subscribe to Follow for free podcasts. Apple added “Subscribe” for premium podcasting. Spotify say “M…
 
Apple announced “Subscriptions” after changing the name of subscribing to a free podcast to “Follow”. We have more details about that system. Today I will attempt to tell you, technically, how this is going to work and what it will not do. What it is… Apple Podcasts will allow you to create a show that is a paid subscription only available on Apple…
 
I put on my Grumpy Old Man hat on today. Here are the top 10 things that bug me about podcasting and podcasters these days… 10. WordPress.com is NOT the same as WordPress.org. 9. People that use “POD” to mean Podcast. 8. Companies that want to change the word “Subscribe” to Follow. 7. No Tech Support for some podcast directories and apps. They blam…
 
I love it when people correct me! Andy Lehman tells me all about what I didn’t get quite right about the Podcast Namespace. Andy is the guy that does the Podcast Namespace WordPress Plugin, an Add-on to PowerPress to add more namespace tags to your RSS feed. – https://github.com/Lehmancreations/Podcast-Namespace-Wordpress-Plugin Andy also does a po…
 
In the history of podcasting, there have been a few Namespaces added to RSS to make podcasting work. Apple added the namespace, Google added the namespace and even Blubrry added the namespace. Now there is a new one done by independent podcasters, app developers, companies and other interested people called the …
 
Today I want to go back to the REAL basics of how podcasting works. So, without going into a history lesson, podcasting has worked the same way since it started 16 years ago. (some say longer). So. Back to the basics: Podcasting is just Blogging with Audio. To create a podcast post, you create a blog post (no matter where you are publishing, the ba…
 
Why would build your podcast on someone else’s platform when you can build your own? Building a podcast platform is a little harder than doing it on a Podcast Hosting company site, but it’s so worth it. At Blubrry, we call it the Blubrry Way. Have your own domain. Put a WordPress on it and use the PowerPress plugin to generate your feed and let you…
 
In 2020, the podcast industry added over 1 million shows (data from My Podcast Reviews). Out of 1.7 million shows listed on Apple, 60% (ish) are inactive. Also in 2020… Joe Rogan went Spotify Exclusive. Spreaker/Voxnest got bought by iHeart Radio. Stitcher got bought by Sirius/XM. Wondery got bought by Amazon. Podcast Index started by Adam Curry an…
 
What are some things you can do when you just don’t feel like podcasting? Here is what I do. I do more show prep. It seems I get more motivated to podcast if I do show prep on a show I’m about to record. Here are some other options: Delay the episode a day or two until you do feel like podcasting. Run a re-run. If you have been at this a while and …
 
There are lots of apps you can use to play podcasts. As a podcaster I’m sure you are also a podcast listener. Here is my top 6 (in reverse order of use). #6 Podcast Addict (Android) – I don’t use Android every day, but when I do, I use either Podcast Addict or Google Podcasts. Being that I have to test in a lot of apps, I have just about every app …
 
RSS is what powers podcasting. In fact, this is why podcasting even exists. The enclosure tag in RSS2 allows you to “attach” a media file. Mainly an MP3 but you can also attach just about any media like a video file, a PDF or ebook file. “Podcasting” is mostly audio but there are some that do video via RSS. RSS (RDF Site Summary or Really Simple Sy…
 
PodcastIndex.org is a project by Adam Curry and Dave Jones (and a whole bunch of devs and podcasters) that is meant to “preserve podcasting as a platform for free speech” as their tagline says on the site. This is very important to us indie podcasters. This can help prevent one company from owning podcasting. They are also working on the Podcast Na…
 
I failed miserably at completing the NaPodPoMo 30 episodes in 30 days this year. OH well, Such is life getting in the way. The Good News and part of the “big” announcement I teased is this show is going 2 times weekly starting on Dec. 16, 2020. As the unofficial companion show to Podcast Insider – Blubry’s Official Podcast and Blog, I will be putti…
 
I’m not only a podcaster, but an avid podcast listener. I have something like 30 shows that I subscribe to plus I listen to a lot of one-off shows that I don’t subscribe to. Here is my top 8 (as of late November 2020) Also, not in Rank order. Just that these 8 are listened to nearly as soon as they come in. Lehto’s Law Steve Lehto is a Lawyer in Mi…
 
YES, I really did just say don’t look at your stats for 3 months. People can get so obsessed with their numbers that they forget to put their energy into the podcast episodes themselves. Your show will grow if it’s good and you keep doing it. So focus on that. It WILL grow, but sometimes it’s much slower than we want it to be. This podcast is poste…
 
There are many things about a podcast that a podcaster needs to know even if you don’t do everything for your show. A lot of indie podcasters do everything. Prep, Talent, Recording, Editing, Producing, Publishing, Booking guests and ALL of it. Some only do the parts of it. Sometimes it’s a whole team. BUT, YOU as the owner of your show, need to kno…
 
From Wikipedia; RSS (RDF Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication) is a web feed that allows users and applications to access updates to websites in a standardized, computer-readable format. These feeds can, for example, allow a user to keep track of many different websites in a single news aggregator. The news aggregator will automatically check …
 
ID3 tags are data put inside of your MP3 file before you upload it. They are NOT needed anymore in the podcasting world due to how the RSS feeds and apps have evolved to use data from the RSS feed over the years. But if you want to use them you can. Overcast uses the image from the ID3 tag if it’s present, but will use the main image for your show …
 
There are reasons you might want to number your episodes in the title of your post. It’s kind of cool to keep track. It makes it easier to make sure you are working on the right episode. It helps with file naming. Reasons you might NOT want to put the episode number in the title. Apple doesn’t like (but they won’t kick you out for it) People will s…
 
We talked yesterday about why you need a website. Here are my top 6 web hosting platforms and why (Plus a few I don’t recommend). A2 hosting – EASY importing into their platform. Great support and so far (knock on wood) NO Issues with downtime or page speed. Price is great Blubrry PowerPress Sites – Easy, no updates to deal with. Rocket ship fast. …
 
Do you need a website for your podcast? YES! Here is why…. Building your brand is best done on your OWN website with your own domain name. Not on someone else’s domain. Give your listeners a place to ALWAYS find you. No matter what the directories and apps do, your site will always be there. Gives Google a place to find you. Google search is the #1…
 
Being everywhere with your podcast is a good thing. I don’t care how you listen to Podcast Help Desk. I just want you to listen. Being everywhere is not too difficult. You have an RSS feed and that is (mostly) all that is required. There are ways to submit to any of the directories with an RSS feed. For the most part, if your show can be on Apple P…
 
How long should your Podcast Episode be? Short answer: A podcast should be only as long as it needs to be to say what you want to say. Don’t put 15 minutes worth of content in a 30 minute show. Also, don’t try to stuff 30 minutes into a 20 minute show. There is no perfect length for a podcast. There are people out there that will tell you the perfe…
 
Shownotes, or Blog Post Content can really help you episodes (and your website) be found in Google. You need to create some text that the search engines can index so you come up in Google and others. Google is the #1 way people find podcasts and episodes about the subject they are searching for. Most of the time, when potential listeners go to thei…
 
I I will be joining with a bunch of other podcasters this year doing National Podcast Post Month in November. That is 30 episodes in 30 days for the entire month of November. This will be the 4th or 5th time trying it for me. I’ve succeeded once a couple of years ago on Mike Dell’s World. On November 30th I will tell you some exciting news (To me a…
 
I talk more about Spotify and why I am not there anymore. Also, what is a REAL podcast app? My definition is if you can take the RSS feed address and subscribe to a podcast feed that is NOT included in the Apple or whatever other directory and still subscribe and listen to the podcast. Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Podcast Addict and Pocketcasts are ex…

I took my portable setup on a walk in the woods in a industrial park. I talked about RSS, big shows vs. Indie shows, Joe Rogan’s deal with Spotify and a bunch more. Recorded using a dynamic clip on microphone from Shure. (SM11 – Not 10 something like I said in the show) More from the studio on the next episode!…
 
The results are in! Thank you for those that reported what you saw in your app of choice. I put different images in different places. I put a Green logo image in the ID3 tags (embedded in the mp3 file), A Blue logo image in the RSS image ( Called “iTunes image” in the item level of the RSS feed) A Green and blue imgage in the body of the post (Feat…
 
In today’s episode I am testing what episode artwork shows up in which apps and directories again. Things are changing and I want to see what apps show which artowrk. I have an RSS image for this episode with blue type, an ID3 tag image with Green Type and the normal orange type from my logo in the main show level artwork. Let me know which one you…
 
I am going to leave PodcastHelpDesk active. Just going on ‘indefinite Hiatus” or “once in a while” mode. So no expectations of an episode every week or even every month, but I will put stuff in this feed once in a while. Stay subscribed! Thank to everyone that contacted me and your thoughts and suggestions were appreciated! You will always be able …
 
Looking for some help here. What do you think I should do with this podcast? I am not consistent (as you can tell) and I want to pair down the number of shows I feel obligated to do. Should I leave it online and just let it podfade and exist? Or should I kill it and erase it’s existence? Let me know, mike@mikedell.com I will continue to do Mike Del…

This should be a live link Today I talk about Anchor, Spotify and if they are “bad” or good, and if it’s good to have one dom…
 
Every part of my studio, other than the mic boom and cable is new. The Rodecaster Pro has replaced a whole rack of stuff. I gush about how much Love this thing. It may not be perfect but man-o-man does it make things a bunch easier for most average podcasters. I also talk about the other podcasts I’m doing including the new (ish) one I’m doing for …

The single best way to make sure your Title is what you want it to be EVERYWHERE is to use it as the blog title (assuming you are using WordPress to publish your podcast) or the TITLE box in whatever podcast service you are using. The Best way to make sure your “shownotes” are the same everywhere is to use it in the main post content box. There are…
 
This is Wednesday’s episode of my Alexa News Breif Podcast Help Desk news. In addition to killing off “iTunes” on the Mac Desktop, Apple is also changing up the categories. (Later this summer) Also adding some search and photo settings. Your podcast companies did not know about this ahead of time and will (the good ones anyway) be up to speed by th…
