"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."
"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)."
