Yes, I know I misspelled the word “technology.” That wasn’t by mistake. If you don’t get the joke, maybe you should be spending more time watching Ali G. reruns…
In all seriousness, yesterday was a really fun show. It started with me raving about newly discovered podcast platform/technology iPadio (H/T to friend Bryan Person). My co-host, Jennifer, hadn’t had a chance to spend much time with with the service yet but agreed with my assessment that they showed promise. Here are the four things I really like about their service:
- The sound quality — at least on the iPhone — is crystal clear. I assume the recording on other devices is equally good (you listen for yourself with my test podcasts).
- You can record offline (assuming you have an app) and upload when you have connectivity. This is good for planes or car rides where cell coverage can vary.
- When I decided to give iPadio a test and mentioned so on Twitter, James O’Malley (he mans their Twitter presence) immediately chimed in and offered up his help if I needed it.
- Their CEO, Mark Smith, followed up with me after my first test and let me know about a cool project they participated in recently.
- As of April 29, Jennifer and I are going to move our “live broadcast” time from 6 PM ET / 3 PM PT to 3 PM ET / 12 PM PT. We are also trimming our show from 45 to 30 minutes (same format, just crisper).
- We are officially looking for an unpaid intern / producer (we will pay in love, kindness and recognition). Time commitment is likely 1-2 hours / week. Ideally person has some podcast editing skills, knowledge of social networks and highly organized. If interested, DM Jennifer or me for details.
