Howdy everyone, Everyone here knows me as Frozt, on my show I use the pen name Cam. I don't have any co-hosts yet and it's a podcast that's still in the early stages.

Re: Multi Question

1. We do arcs on Better Podcasting but not seasons. All of my TV-show and comic based shows are continual as well. I think that's mostly due to the nature of spoken word content versus video content. Audio is much more routine year-round like a radio show (Mike & Mike for example). Whereas video is...

Multi Question

So at times, and I'm sure others can agree, my mind has tons of random questions. Which is why I'm posting here, though I'm sure it would fit somewhere else, I wasn't sure the appropriate space. 1. Does anyone base their podcasts on "seasons" like how TV shows do? If so, do have a preset amount of s...

Re: How Do You Self-Host Your Podcast?

Frozt, thanks so much for posting your experience on self hosting. I've watched far too often people drink the cool aid on how extensive hardware needs to be for server requirements for hosting. The reality is, for the average podcaster that's just not true. If you're lucky enough to be a massively...

Changes

I know the typical format for podcasts feeds, according to itunes, is to be in RSS format. I know SP mentioned in a different post that times are changing, that RSS 2 has been around forever and it wouldn't take any provider to change the format to RSS 3. But why does it have to be in RSS? Why not a...

Re: Do You Value Edison (and similar) Research?

There are a ton of great points. 1. Organizations such as Libsyn, Blubrry, etc will end up raising the cost, but seeing as these are "corporate" entities, the end game for them is more money in rather than out. Usually forcing things that podcasters find unacceptable. 2. Hobby-Casters will find ways...

Re: ITunes provider page

If I recall correctly, you have to submit a rss feed to the itunes provider page. Anything under that feed is what gets parsed. So, when/if you add a new podcast and update your rss feed, then itunes automatically parses that to add new episodes.

Field Recording

Hey y'all. I'd like everyone's input because I'm thinking of getting a Zoom H1 for doing field recording, like interviews outside of my "home studio" (that means outside of my current bedroom). I am on a bit of a budget which is why I'm seriously considering the H1. The other one I considered (vs al...
