WPWeekly Episode 135 – Podcasting With WordPress

In this episode of WordPress Weekly, I was joined by Marcus Couch and Matt Medeiros of Mattreport.com and founder of Slocumstudio.com. I threw out the show notes for this episode and instead, tapped into the collective knowledge of my guests to discuss the world of podcasting with WordPress. The first part of the conversation covers equipment, audio quality, and audience while the second half focuses on WordPress. One thing immediately became clear. We’re all fans of the Blubrry Powerpress plugin. If you’re thinking about starting a show and using WordPress to publish it, you’ll want to listen to this episode!

  1. Oh my God! Someone mentioned NetObjects Fusion! That sure brings me back :) What a strange and wonderful program. It is still s player in Europe, as I understand. Great show. I will be doing my first podcast in a week, so I am very interested. Dave

    1. What the heck is NetObjectsFusion? lol. Once you publish your first show, be sure to ping me so I can take a listen!

  2. Interesting to hear that you guys spend so much time in post-production editing. I find that the authenticity of hearing the host “um” and “ah” and the gaps provide a very real experience which makes me feel like I trust the program. If I can pick the editing it makes me wonder what else is being hidden or edited. Andrew Warner at Mixergy is pretty rough around the edges but he is so genuine and the content is so compelling that it doesn’t matter.

    Also, you gotta be producing great content consistently so editing is just a time suck which is not necessary.

    I agree with Marcus.

    Anyhoo – it’s great that you guys are still going after so long – keep up the awesomeness.

    FWIW I don’t edit anything in my video/audio podcast at WP Elevation (even if someone’s little kid comes in and wants to say “hi”).

  3. I had a great time on this episode — would love to do more of it.

    By the way Jeff, spell my last name right or are you still out to get me? Can I request Sarah to write my article next time? ;p
