Jim was Podcasting on New year's Eve
[2:30] Jim changed the format a bit the other night and got some feedback from his audience.
[3:40] This was a super easy tool to use to create a double-ender in the cloud. Check it out at zendcastr.com Jeremy has used it for a month and has good experiences with it so far. It's easy to use and better than trying to get people to record their side of the conversation.
They do have one person who occasionally drops the call. There haven't been any drifting issues with different speeds of recording. Jeremy recorded five people at one time, and got a copy of each person's audio, plus a sixth version that had everyone combined.
It's free now, but it won't be free forever. It seems to be pretty obvious when you use it. Check out Jerem at www.transmissionpodcast.com

Backing Up Zencaster Call
Proper Levels When Recording a Blab into Zoom
[18:35] For me everything goes into my mixer which goes into the recorder. So it doesn't matter where I'm sending the audio to, I've already got my recording before I send it to blab.
Glycast Controlling Your Feed
[21:45] A company is saying, “Just give us your feed.” Dave explains it could be very dangerous to give your feed to another company and let them be between you and your audience.
NOTE: Dave interviewed the guy behind Glycast on the School of Podcasting. Here is a video that explains the potential danger.
Jim mentions it might be interesting to have two feeds: One with ads and one without.

30:15 Stargate Pioneer from betterpodcasting.com does a show for the “Hobby Podcaster” but has a ton of equipment. So what is a hobby podcast?
[34:10] Can You login to Blab from the same machine? Yes you can but you have to use a different browser or an incognito window.
Live365 Goodbye E-Mail
[37:40] Jim reads a letter from Live365 explaining why they are closing their doors.
Dave mentions that according to the New Media Show over 1000 podcasts are launched a week, and Soundcloud has settled their law suit in the UK.
Which Pop Filter?
The RE320 is around $300 for just the microphone. BSW has a good deal for the microphone, shock mount, and pop filter.
[46:10] How do You cut out breathing noise? Quit breathing. In the end its mic technique.
[48:05] Go listen to an old show with fresh ears.
50:30 Dave's messy Facebook setup. You want to friend the Dave Jackson with the headphones.

Most people don't tune into hear yourself pat yourself on the back.
