Ileane Smith's insight:

This was a response to a question from Lisa Irby on her forum Website Babble.


Go to Settings > Scroll down to Artwork > Click the Upload New Tab.


iTunes Podcast cover art should be 1400 x 1400 pixels. You can create your art with the Slicer Apps from Appendipity.

Are You Breaking the Podcast Rules? Dave Jackson Interviews Cliff Ravenscraft

Are You Breaking the Podcast Rules? Dave Jackson Interviews Cliff Ravenscraft | Podcasts | Scoop.it
Are there boundaries for “Best Practices?” – Interview with Cliff Ravenscraft 

Cliff Ravenscraft is known as the Podcast Answer man. I approached Cliff this week to come on the show after voicing my opinion about “chit chit” in a previous episode (where I answered a listener question). I’ve known Cliff for years, and I thought it was stupid to talk about his show  (not the person) without actually stating his name. As I said last week, I’m not judging Cliff. We do have a difference of opinions on personal stories in podcasts, so I asked him to come on and share his insights. I want to see if there is anything I can learn. So I ask him why he would share personal stories in a show that many might expect to be all about podcasting. The beauty of podcasting is you can do you show however you want.

Ileane Smith's insight:

Cliff Ravenscraft, often referred to as Uncle Cliff, is one of the most prolific podcasters I know. He has several shows and has dedicated most of his time and life to the craft.

I like to say there are two ways to explain VBR vs CBR.  There is the non-tech way to explain it and that is simply:

 

VBR = Bad,  CBR = Good

What we recommend at Libsyn is:

 

.mp3

64 kbps - bit rate

44.1 khz - sample rate

mono or joint stereo.

 

Personally - I go with 96 kbps on the bit rate and mono.

Blubrry Podcast Hosting Service enhancement allows podcasters to go 25 percent over their storage limit

Today we have introduced a new feature to our podcast media hosting. We have found that some of our podcast hosting customers bump against their monthly storage limit on the hosting plan they have paid for time to time most only needing a little extra storage to carry them into the next month and not force them to upgrade.

Podcasting for Beginners: The Complete Guide to Getting Started

Podcasting for Beginners: The Complete Guide to Getting Started | Podcasts | Scoop.it
Everything you need to know about setting up your first podcast from start to finish - hardware, software, sharing, and tips for podcasting for beginners.
Ileane Smith's insight:

PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE COMMENTS ON THIS POST by Daniel J. Lewis and myself


Daniel:

"Generally good post! I have some disagreements over the methodology of examining what other podcasters do and cite that as steps for success.

The Snowball is actually a generally poor choice for starting out. It locks you into a USB workflow and you have to throw away the mic when you get professional gear. It also gives inferior audio quality to better mics in the same price range—like the Audio Technica ATR2100-USB or AT2005USB.

I was a little disappointed to see none of the podcasting experts cited or recommended—Dave Jackson, Ray Ortega, Cliff Ravenscraft, or myself (Daniel J. Lewis).

Transcripts aren't the right way to go. Humans (and search engines) want quality content and a transcript is usually not quality content because it wastes so much time with the dialog. The best kinds of show notes for humans and SEO are concise and written like a blog post. Humans love it, Google loves it, and you make your content far more accessible to readers."


Me:

"I agree with all your points Daniel!

Kevan nice to see you talking about podcasting however you really can't have a credible discussion about starting a podcast without referencing the outstanding resources provided by Dave, Ray, Cliff or Daniel (IMO)."
