Question of the Day - Your Limits To keep from getting an "explicit" tag from iTunes, podcasters have to take out things like  "the 7 deadly words" or face losing their feed on iTunes. If you run an explicit #podcast, what boundaries do you not cross? If you run a clean show, would you ever cross it over to the "explicit" range?

QOTD - Mistakes You Made and How You Fixed them I have made many mistakes in podcasting over the years. One common one I run into is dual-mic issues. Since I run video, whenever I setup a new show, I have to make sure the only source it pulls from is the board. Sometimes I accidentally have a scene where the camera audio creeps in and I get a weird echo. 

So what issues have you run into while podcasting so others can learn and not make the same mistakes?

QOTD - Artwork The current iTunes artwork is 3000x3000 in size. This means a crisp image when it is shrunk down to 140x140. When you do shrink it down, many images lose certain aspects that really promote the show. Text becomes hard to read or the overall image looks like a jumbled mess because the large image has too much stuff in it. 

What tips do you have to make the best artwork possible while utilizing all the space in the image? Feel free to post your podcast images here as examples!

Question of the Day - Pets Many of you have dogs, cats, hamsters, etc that are free to roam around the house. For some, if you close a door, that pet might start to whine and scratch. My co-host +Luke Wallace from +Wearable Today proudly has Birdie on his shoulder during recordings. 

When it comes to pets, do you let them roam free while recording or do you close the door so you can focus on the podcast?

Question of the Day - Who's Your Go-to Affiliate? Affiliates are different than sponsors because you only make money if they buy something. With time, the affiliate can add some serious value while you evangelize the site. Some use only affiliates to keep their shows running, whereas others will use a sponsor/affiliate combo. If you work with an affiliate enough, they might even start throwing you special items or promo codes to entice even more traffic. 

With that said, how do you proceed on your show and what is the one affiliate you use the most? Please don't say "All my affiliates give me value". I want you to really put one in front of all else. This is to show other podcasters why they should use affiliates.

Rules Question - Restricted So +Byron Friday posted something yesterday but he has restricted his profile. I am not sure if its restricted for me or on a global level (which you can do). I assume since there are no replies or +1, it might be a more global level.

Problem is, I cannot communicate with this person and moderating is a pain. I understand why this setting exists, but don't understand how this can be enforced if they join a community - Moreover one where owners and moderators cannot reply. That goes against what this community is about - open communication. 

So with that said - Should we enforce a rule where if the post is restricted, it will be removed?

Rules Question - Restricted So +Byron Friday posted something yesterday but he has restricted his profile. I am not sure if its restricted for me or on a global level (which you can do). I assume since there are no replies or +1, it might be a more global level.

Problem is, I cannot communicate with this person and moderating is a pain. I understand why this setting exists, but don't understand how this can be enforced if they join a community - Moreover one where owners and moderators cannot reply. That goes against what this community is about - open communication. 

So with that said - Should we enforce a rule where if the post is restricted, it will be removed?___

#QOTD - Website Woes In the last 24 hours, +Geekazine and other properties went down. Partly because of a bad hard drive on the server, the other part because I moved a couple of my shows to their own VPS. It was frustrating as I had to prioritize getting it all back up. 

Tell me a story about yours - Do you have any interesting anecdotes about your podcast website - anything from basic downtime to getting hacked?

This is not a complain thread, so don't tell me which hosts suck. I WILL remove any comments like that. Hoping this will serve as help for others trying to run their own websites.

#QOTD - High Profile Guests My most famous guest to date is Steve Wozniak. I got to book him when I was at a conference in 2010. He just started helping out Fusion-IO and was doing a book signing at the event. I did it when his PR guy sent me an email about the signing and I extended the handshake even more. 

So tell me a story of your best guest. And don't just say the name. Tell me how you got this person to be on your #Podcast . Do you have any tricks to get great names?

Question of the Day - Going XLR This is for those podcasters that use USB mics and iPads to create their shows. If you were given a mixer and microphone to connect into a laptop or desktop and software to record with, would you switch?

This week we look at WearTech’s eventual move to LTE service. Will this replace your phone or other devices? We also take a quick look at the Apple/FBI iPhone issue – was the right decision made to say no? I talk about Domotz home automation and building…

Question of the Day - Guests Sometimes putting on a show with call-in guests works perfect. Other times it seems to be a struggle with everything from microphones to Internet connection. Add in video and your problems could increase ten-fold. When you have a guest on, do you advise them in some way beforehand to avoid pitfalls?

I am working on a podcast e-book and would like to get some quotes from those of you podcasting - especially if you host guests. I would like this to be a controlled group, so if you are interested, please PM me here or at geekazine at gmail. Thanks!

Question of the Day - Promotion Budget Every show needs some promotion. I have been known to throw a few dollars behind a show or episode to spread the word a little better. As the average podcaster only gets their voice out to .0002% of the US population (lot smaller when you factor in 7 billion around the world), putting a couple dollars might help in growth. 

Did you know with YouTube you can throw .25 - $1.00 at a video and get some great traction? 

What is your strategy when it comes to podcasting and how much of a yearly budget do you give yourself?

Question of the Day - Early Mornings Most podcasts happen after work - usually around 7-8 PM. But for some people's 8 PM is others 2 PM. +Todd Cochrane is a prime example - Since he is in Hawaii, his show is 11 PM - 2 AM for most us. But he will also be up at 6 AM on a Saturday to do his New Media Show. 

With that said, would you get up early to record - especially those who work regular hours - to get a show out by the evening?

If you #Podcast  using +SoundCloud you might want to read this. Make sure you have backups of your shows. Freemiums will probably go first. Bankruptcy might save it if the right buyer is interested.

Playing with my new #QSC  Touchmix-16, I can create a drum sub fast and easy with compression, gating and some reverb using Scenes. Notice the difference as I run my drums through no Scene, then use the Drum Sub scene to add effects in.

Question of the Day - Your Limits To keep from getting an "explicit" tag from iTunes, podcasters have to take out things like  "the 7 deadly words" or face losing their feed on iTunes. If you run an explicit #podcast, what boundaries do you not cross? If you run a clean show, would you ever cross it over to the "explicit" range?

MALWARE ALERT Not sure if this matters anymore, but there are reports of malware on NMXLive dot com. Some internal links could install software on your computer (if you click on them).

Question of the Day - Bitrate In my latest Podertainment article, I talk a little about bitrate. It got me to thinking what the sweet spot is nowadays for this podcast issue. I mentioned I threw away all my music lower than 128 kbps and only get new stuff at 192 kbps and above.

Even though talk-only podcasts are OK at 64 kbps, People have mentioned to me they rather listen to audio that has better quality. Of course we have the phone LTE limitation - you cannot download anything over 100 MB (used to be 20 when iPhone 1 came out). Some countries might have even more stringent limitations. BTW - 128 kbps for an hour equals 56 MB files.

We also have streaming audio standards of 24-56 kbps. Great for when you want the sound of the AM radio...

So what do you run your shows at and why? If lower thatn 128 kbps, have you thought of bumping it up?

I am officially recommending this mixer for the high-end podcaster in 2016. Why? Simply because it has everything a podcaster needs and more. If you were asked to record a 4 person panel for a podcast, if you needed to cover a show like CES or NAB, if you needed to even record a small band - this can do it all and is the size of a laptop. It can also be controlled via smartphone or tablet. I'm planning on replacing my gear this year with this console. Simple as that. #geekout
