Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Email this to someone

On this episode I debut my new show intro and talk about how my new podcast music can affect your show’s production value.

I also introduce a few new elements to the show’s introduction including an episode number and a tag-line. Learn how you can improve on your show intro and opening from a great post by Daniel over at The Audacity to Podcast.

I was recently interviewed on Ryan’s Top Shelf about my podcasting story and experience. You can listen to the his new show where he interviews other podcasters and asks them ten core questions related to their own podcasting experience. Check out episode 004 to listen to the questions that Ryan asked during my interview.

In an ever increasing attempt to keep your show evolving and improving, I introduce you to the idea of purchasing your own show music. There are many ways to get music for your podcast including Creative Commons, Garageband, having original music produced for you, etc. I talk about how purchasing affordable Royalty Free music can take your show to the next level.

Finally I talk about whether or not it’s a good idea to use your basic web hosting (typically what you use to host your website) service to host and deliver your podcast. I wrote up an entire blog post including conversations I had with two separate hosts in an attempt answer this question once and for all.
