Aspen Mics* has a new series of lavalier microphones called HQ (High Quality). I first saw these mics tweeted out by @cheesycam who often reviews lower priced gear for DSLR video shooters.

Adobe Audition is now out for the Mac. Find out what I like about it, what I think you could use as an alternative and the effects I use when using Audition to process my audio.

Also discussed on this episode are virtual cart machines (soundbyte, pod producer, etc). These apps and programs allow you to bring other audio clips into your podcast recordings by easily organizing them into a push button display. Easily bring in intros, outros, sound effects and any other audio clips you want to load into the software.

I discuss the advantage to using the new “like” button for facebook and how using Google Analytics to set “funnels” can help you to achieve your desired conversion goals for on your website.

Also find out why I think you can stand to profit by giving away all of your knowledge and content for free! The more content you produce and publish in your niche, the more you establish yourself as an expert in your field. The best way to achieve this status is by making sure anyone and everyone interested in your content can consume it. By giving it away for free you are not only inviting everyone to view it, you are drawing people to your expertise and opening up the possibility for anyone to hire you or pay for other products you sell surrounding your content.
