The Audacity to Podcast: Best Podcasting Gear for Event Interviews – TAP319

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 08:00:09 -0400

Recording audio or video podcasts at an event can present many challenges. Here's the onsite podcasting equipment I recommend to make your production great! No one expects studio quality Events are noisy, but that's okay for your podcast as long as the primary voices can be heard and understood above the noise. You don't have to run noise removal. When your audience knows the context of the recording, they'll be more forgiving of a difference in quality. You don't have to apologize for it or explain it; saying simply, “I'm at [event] …,” is usually enough for your audience to understand the context and adjust their expectations accordingly. Assuming that you'll be in a noisy environment, the biggest things that will affect your podcast are your microphone's pickup pattern and your own mic technique. The closer you are to the microphone and the more you stay within its pickup range, the more it will pick up your voice over the background noise. So ensure you always have the microphone pointed at you, and that you're as close as possible. Whatever podcasting equipment you choose from my following recommendations, test it and familiarize yourself with how to use it before you take it to an event. The worst audio I've ever recorded happened when I used someone else's gear at CES and the system wasn't configured properly, so my recordings had such horrible preamp hiss that it was impossible to edit out. Cringe with me at this horrible audio: Simple: handheld recorder A handheld recorder like the Zoom H1 or Tascam DR-22WL is small enough to fit in your pocket, but has built-in microphones good enough for using almost anywhere! When I attended the NAB Show in 2016, I used a Zoom H1 as my handheld interview mic and I was very pleased with the results! With a windscreen and mic flag, it didn't even look like I was holding a tiny recorder. Here's an example video (no noise reduction was done on this): The microphones on the H1 and DR-22WL are condensers, but that doesn't mean they pick up more noise (that's a common misconception). The microphones are directional, so they do well to pick up the audio directly in front of the and reject more of the surrounding audio. This works great for audio podcasts, and I used for my interviews at Podcast Movement 2016 in “Creative Solutions to Podcasting Problems” (episode 278). A handheld recorder like this can also work for video, as you saw me accomplish, but it means having to synchronize your separately recorded audio and video, which can complicate your workflow. Higher quality: handheld mic and recorder For higher quality, a more professional look, and more comfortable performance, consider a handheld interview mic connected to a recorder. At NAB Show 2015, I borrowed a Sennheiser MD46, which is one of my two favorite handheld interview microphones! It has a long handle, internal shock protection, and it's more directional with its cardioid pickup pattern. This video demonstrates how I used it and the results I got: That video also shows my other recommendation: the Tascam DR-10x plug-on XLR recorder. This recorder connects directly to your microphone, so you still have the cord-free freedom of a digital audio recorder, but with a fantastic microphone attached. Another great microphone is the Electro-Voice RE50N/D-L. Like the Sennheiser MD46, this microphone is XLR and has a wonderfully long handle, but it's omnidirectional, so it's more forgiving if you're not good at pointing an interview microphone back and forth. A long handle is really nice for single-mic interviews because your arm doesn't have to work as much and pointing the microphone back and forth could be a simple turn of your wrist. Watch how much I have to move my arm in the above Pilot Fly video compared to the DR-10x or EOS 70D videos. Like a handheld recorder, using a plug-on recorder with a handheld mic can work for video (as you saw me do in the Tascam DR-10x video), but it still requires manually synchronizing the audio. Sit-down discussions: mics, recorder, and headphones T[...]

The Audacity to Podcast: What Does It Take to Make Your Podcast Better? – TAP318

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 10:36:53 -0400

If your podcast isn't improving, it might be stagnating. This can hurt your growth and your potential. Here's what you need to improve! If you want to make your podcast better, the best way I know (because I designed it for this) is to join Podcasters' Society. It reopens this week! Change Getting better means something has to change. That could mean adding, removing, or improving any aspect of your podcast. Consider a marriage. The relationship won't get any better unless the husband or wife change in some way. That could be accepting something that's unchangeable, or it could be changing something that's unacceptable. Doing the same things the same ways won't give you different results. Intention “Practice,” alone, doesn't “make perfect.” Consider a starting pianist learning their scales. They could keep messing up at the same place for a mystical 10,000 hours and still never get better at their scales. To improve, you must be intentional. Yes, it's possible to accidentally do something better, but repeating that requires intention. Humility Contentment is important, and I think humility is a type of dissatisfaction about your present place while acknowledging that there is something better. The person who thinks they can't be any better than they are has simply reached the edge of their own knowledge and can't see there's more beyond their limits. Patience There's no magical “10,000-hour” rule. Improving, changing, and growing all take time. You might try something new with your podcast and not see results for several weeks or even months. I remember getting both excited and discouraged when I earned my first few dollars in Amazon affiliate income. It was so minuscule that it didn't seem worth it. Now, many years later, my Amazon affiliate earnings are very important to my business's income. If I had given up then, my business couldn't be where it is today. (That actually applies to many aspects of my life.) Curiosity I think the core quality of self-improvers is curiosity: a drive to try new things, discover alternatives, and test the limits. Perhaps that's innate, or maybe it's fostered. Investment Making anything better requires investing resources. Making your podcast better may take time or money; one often counterbalance the other. You can invest money to upgrade your tools, hire help, or invest in marketing and potentially see quick results. Or, you can invest time to learn or do things yourself. I can hold a dollar in my hand for 20 years and—unless that dollar is a collectible—it won't increase in value or given me a greater return later. Critique A painful part of growing and improving is some necessary negativity. You may not like hearing that you wasted time in your podcast, something failed, or that something isn't as good as you thought it was. But such critiques (even from harsh criticisms) are necessary to find exactly what needs to be fixed. Other people Lastly, but certainly not least important, you need the perspectives of other people. Going back to a marriage example, I can think I'm the best husband in the world and truly believe I'm doing nothing wrong. But what does my wife think? We each have faults we can't see. So we must be grateful when others point out our blindspots, because they see something we might have never seen. Oh, I have countless times where I've said or done something I thought was acceptable (or had no reason to think it wasn't), but someone else had the courage and kindness to share a truth I didn't know. You don't have to be perfect! I've listed several things I think are required to make your podcast better. I don't think you must have all of these things, but it's certainly easier to change when you have more of them. But perfection is the goal you should never have because it's impossible to reach! Yes, there will be flaws and there will always be ways you could be better. The maturity in all this is in recognizing[...]

Geocaching Podcast: GCPC EPISODE 507 – Dealing with Geocaching Difficulty and Terrain

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 23:56:58 -0400

August 9th, 2017 We have a Geocaching Podcast First!!! Host Scott Berks went after a FTF live on the show and succeeded! Find out how close they almost came to NOT getting the FTF and by an unlikely set of geocachers. In tonight’s episode of the Geocaching Podcast: The hosts discuss geocaching Difficulty and Terrain ratings as a response to the latest challenge from Captain Mary Hyde this week. Be sure to check it out! Please share with other geocachers. We meet on Wednesday nights at 9:30PM ET at http://www.geocachingpodcast.com/live so you can see us record the show live and join in the chat room. See you there! #geocaching #geocachingpodcast #headhardhat #podcast ——————————————————————- The Video Version of our Podcast GCPC EPISODE 507 Show Notes Difficulty and Terrain or D/T Geocaches are rated in two categories, each designated on a 5-point scale (in half-point increments). Difficulty relates to the mental challenge of finding a geocache, while Terrain describes the physical environment. Therefore, a D1/T1 rating would be the easiest geocache to find, while a D5/T5 difficulty/terrain rating would be the most difficult. Our Geocache Rating System can be used to help set the rating for your geocache. D/T Notes: Every geocache has a difficulty rating and a terrain rating on a 5-star scale. Ratings vary from one community to the next. A 3-star terrain in Banff, Canada, is a different experience than a 3-star terrain in Amsterdam, Holland. Please rate your cache accurately based on standards in your area and guidance in the table below. Tip: Event caches should always have a 1-star difficulty rating because it is easy for geocachers to “find” events. They are in plain sight or can be found in a few minutes of searching. It does not matter how difficult the event activities may be. Why it is so important to have an accurate D/T for geocaches?

The Audacity to Podcast: 3 Options for Minimal and Portable Podcasting Gear – TAP317

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 08:00:51 -0400

You may not need to spend thousands on multiple pieces of audio equipment to get a good-sounding podcast. Here are modern solutions. Audio equipment has significantly matured since I first talked about bare minimum equipment in my early few episodes. Back then, I still recommended a microphone and mixer. Today, the options are a lot simpler and more versatile! IMPORTANT: Preorder The Messengers: A Podcast Documentary I believe anyone can share a message to change the world, and podcasting is the best way to do that! That's why I'm so excited about The Messengers: A Podcast Documentary. Please preorder your own copy so we can get the movie to #1 in iTunes and show the world the power of podcasting! Basic: solo and VoIP In the simplest form, all you need to make an audio podcast is a microphone and recorder. You could use the mic built into your smartphone (which is better than the mic on a phone headset). With some good technique and a low-noise, low-reverb environment, you can get decent results. But if you want to be serious about your show, I really recommend you get a dedicated microphone. For starting out, I recommend the Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB. While this certainly is the best USB microphone, I think it's the best for most starting podcasters (and a better choice than the Blue Yeti or Snowball). It's USB for connecting directly to your computer It has a built-in 3.5 mm headphone jack for monitoring your own voice. And if you set your PC's output to the ATR2100-USB, you'll hear audio from your USB through the same headphones. It sounds good. It's a cardioid mic, so it picks up less side audio. It also has XLR so that if you ever upgrade to professional audio equipment, you don't have to throw away your mic. And the ATR2100-USB has a lifetime warranty! Because of that lifetime warranty, I still think the ATR2100-USB is a better choice than alternatives. But sometimes, the nearly identical Audio-Technica AT2005USB or Samson Q2u are more affordable or available in other countries. With nothing but this microphone and your computer or mobile device (with a USB adapter), you can easily record solo shows. Many apps and services, such as Ringr, Zencastr, Ecamm Call Recorder for Skype, Pamela, and such will let you record both your own voice and a remote participant—even into separate tracks! It's possible to combine multiple USB microphones, especially with Spreaker Studio for Windows and macOS, but this gets more complicated and it's when you would want to consider further upgrades. Intermediate: multiple people and same location When you need to start mixing multiple participants, especially in the same location, that's exactly what a mixer is for. But mixers often come with complications, such as routing and recording. Plus, low-cost mixers mix all channels together into a single stereo channel, so you can't take advantage of multitrack recording. That's why a mixer might not be the best next step. Instead, consider a professional digital audio recorder. I recommend the Zoom H4n Pro or especially the Zoom H5 or Zoom H6. These devices are actually simple enough that you could record directly into them with their own built-in microphone or included mic capsule. You can even use them as a USB microphone connected to your computer or mobile device (Elsie Escobar, cohost of She Podcasts and The Feed – The Official Libsyn Podcast, does this for her podcasting)! But where the H4n Pro and especially H5 and H6 stand out as an intermediate solution is that you can connect multiple XLR microphones (as well as 1/4″ or 3.5 mm lines) to mix and record in multitrack—without a computer! Plus, these recorders can be powered via batteries or an AC power adapter, so you can have extreme portability and a small [...]

Presenting “There’s and App for That! STEM Homeschooling with Games and Apps” at GiE17


The 11th annual Games in Education Symposium (GiE17) brought together educators from the United States and Canada to learn how to supercharge their classrooms with video games.

While this conference’s target attendee is the public school teacher, I was able to present as well as attend. While there, I learned a lot about game-based education and will be sharing how homeschoolers can use games to teach STEM topics.

In this episode, I provide a wrap-up of my time at GiE17 and share some thoughts about future episodes and collaborations with some of the people I met at the conference.

Geocaching Podcast: GCPC EPISODE 506 – Geocaching Multi-Caches

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 23:17:30 -0400

August 2nd, 2017 In tonight’s episode of the Geocaching Podcast: Since this week’s Captain Mary Hyde promotion deals with Multi-caches. We thought it would be appropriate to discuss in more detail what constitutes a multi geocache. Be sure to check it out! Please share with other geocachers. We meet on Wednesday nights at 9:30PM ET at http://www.geocachingpodcast.com/live so you can see us record the show live and join in the chat room. See you there! #geocaching #geocachingpodcast #headhardhat #podcast ——————————————————————- The Video Version of our Podcast GCPC EPISODE 506 Show Notes What is a Multi-cache? These geocaches involve two or more locations, with the final location being a physical container with a logbook inside. There are many variations, but typically once you’re at the first stage, you will receive a clue to the whereabouts of the second stage. The second stage will have a clue for the third, and so on. What is a Puzzle cache? Many new geocachers confuse multi caches with puzzle caches. So here is the difference. The “catch-all” of geocache types, this type may involve complicated puzzles that you will first need to solve to determine the correct coordinates. Mystery/Puzzle Caches often become the staging ground for new and unique geocaches that do not fit in another category. Icon most commonly used for ‘geo art’. (A series of puzzles which when viewed on the map, show a recognised image). This is also the icon used for challenge caches – where the container is at the location specified, but you are supposed to have ‘met’ the challenge before logging it. Differences between Multies and Puzzles? Pros and Cons? Pros Pro – Multi – Takes you on an adventure Cons Con – Multi – Multiple stages and a single smiley. A pain to change (if you have to move a location> ——————————————————————- NEWS: Third “Message in a Bottle” was sent out on Monday July 31st.

The Audacity to Podcast: How to Start Using the New iTunes Podcast Tags for iOS 11 – TAP316

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 08:00:44 -0400

With the release of iOS 11, Apple supports new podcasting tags for your podcast RSS feed. Here's how you can start using them today. What are the new and updated iTunes tags for podcasts? At WWDC 2017, Apple announced iOS 11 and released information about new tags being added to the iTunes podcasting spec and coming support in the Apple Podcasts app.  (show/channel level): “episodic” for non-chronological episodes that will behave as they have for years and download the latest episode, or “serial” for chronological episodes that should be consumed oldest to newest.  (episode/item level): “full” for normal episodes; “trailer” to promote an upcoming show, season, or episode; or “bonus” for extra content related to a show, season, or episode.  (episode/item level): only the episode title—no episode number, season number, or show title. This can be used with any show and episode type.  (episode/item level): any number to indicate the current episode number, which can be relative to the entire show (like “316”), or relative to the current season (like “5”). This can be used with any show and episode type.  (episode/item level): any number to indicate the season in which this episode belongs. This can be used with any show and episode type.  (episode/item level): this updated (but not new) tag is best for a short description of your episode. It will display above the full show notes.  (episode/item level): this updated (but not new) tag is for your full show notes. It will display below the title and summary. Listen to my episode 310, “Apple's iOS 11, Podcast Analytics, and Podcasting Spec Update,” for more information about these new and updated tags. Using the new iTunes tags in PowerPress If you're using WordPress with the PowerPress plugin to generate your RSS feed, the following steps will help you enable the new podcast tags for iTunes. You will probably notice red “new!” text next to the new options. Login to your WordPress admin dashboard. If you aren't already  PowerPress 7.1 or later, go to Dashboard > Updates and update PowerPress (you may have to click “Check Again” if the update isn't listed yet.) Go to PowerPress > Settings > iTunes tab. Set “iTunes Type” to “Episodic” or “Serial.” Then go to the Episodes tab. Checkmark the new tags you want to use: “iTunes Summary Field” (old, but new behavior), “iTunes Episode Title Field,” and “iTunes Episode Number, Season and Type Fields.” Click Save Changes. Create or edit a post. Scroll to the “Podcast Episode” widget. If you're changing an already-published episode, checkmark “Modify existing podcast episode.” Enter the appropriate information in the new “iTunes episode” and “iTunes title” fields. Enter a one- or two-sentence description in “iTunes Summary” or leave blank to use your excerpt (if written) or a truncated version of your show notes. Click Update or Publish when you're finished editing your post. Using the new iTunes tags in Libsyn If you use Libsyn to host your media and manage your podcast RSS feed, the following steps will help you use the new podcast tags for iTunes. Login to your Libsyn a[...]

Podcast Help Desk – Going Deep Into The Technology Of Podcasting: Why Does Real Podcast Hosting Cost So Much More Than Soundcloud? – PHD099

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 12:36:39 -0400

(image)

News:

————-

Q: Why is XXX (Blubrry, Libsyn, Spreaker) so much more expensive than Soundcloud?

A: Because, businesses that host podcasts have to buy bandwidth.  Bandwidth costs money.  If you charge less than it costs you and don’t make a profit, the business won’t stay in business.  This is why Free or cheap hosting will never be a long term plan.  If a company charges enough to make themselves a profit, they will stay in business.  Simple as that.  Soundcloud spent more money than they took in for a long time and it’s now catching up with them.  There have been 100’s of free or cheap hosting companies come and go over the years. Unless you enjoy changing hosts every so often, pick one that has been around for a while, not one that just started and seems too good to be true.

Topics:

  • Do you do too many podcasts?
 – I know I *try* to do too many. It normally doesn’t work out.
  • Do you have too complicated of a website?
 – I can’t stress enough the importance of having a clean, easy website for your podcast. Too many times I go to someones “podcast” website and I can’t find their podcast. Not only does it make it hard for listeners, but it makes it hard for the podcaster to maintain.

Blubrry Tip :

  • PowerPress Sites Deluxe
 is up and running. It’s a no-worry WordPress Site, for your podcast, that you do not have to do updates, security and it won’t go down. Try it free for a month at blubrry.com use the promo code HELPDESK
  • Your Podcast by Blubrry – Blubrry’s podcast about the podcasting business, tips for your podcast and some inside blubrry information. Every other week at PowerPressPodcast.com


Also check out the PowerPress Podcast with MacKenzie and her guest hosts along with a PowerPress tip from Shawn every other week.

Also:

I am working on an Amazon Alexa Skill for Podcast Help Desk News that you will be able to add to your flash briefing in Alexa. It will be a 1-2 minute tip or news item from the world of podcasting. ( Yes, I’m a glutton for punishment ) It’s just something I’m playing with. Stay tuned!

See you there! #geocaching #geocachingpodcast #headhardhat #podcast ——————————————————————- The Video Version of our Podcast GCPC EPISODE 505 Show Notes When out geocaching it is bound to happen. An encounter is inevitable and how you conduct yourself will in many cases dictate how the encounter will end. No we are not talking about wildlife this time but muggles. Just being prepared will help. In years past: Geocaching was a much more secretive activity which dictated more seclusive techniques to keep away from muggles. The main tool of the time was an actual GPS unit. Was a time of higher overall paranoia and suspicion of everyone. Geocachers worked on stealth when it came to finding a geocache in a muggle prone environment. It was not uncommon to have clothing items and props to help blend into the area when geocaching. Example: construction vests, hardhat and tags, clipboard, etc. Muggles of the present: A bit less paranoid of people in general. Are getting more familiar with people playing augmented reality games on their smartphones: Ex. Ingress or Pokemon Go, etc. Still suspicious of geocache containers We encourage geocaching with confidence instead of stealth and looking to see if someone is looking at you. ——————————————————————- NEWS: Second “Message in a Bottle” was sent out on Monday July 24th.

DevRadio (MP4) - Channel 9: Behind the Scenes: How DroneWorks built a Safety Flight Platform for Industrial Drones using Azure IoT Hub

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 13:00:11 -0400

The drone industry is attracting the attention of many people who have innovative ideas for how to use them, and as a result many companies are now focusing on building new applications for them. According to a recent study, by 2030, fifty percent of the market for industrial drones will be focused on agriculture and photography. Unfortunately, there are currently no standardized safety mechanisms in place and these giant flying objects can be subject to hacking or malfunctioning.  DroneWorks, located in Chiba, Japan, is currently working to fix that by building alliances with stakeholders to standardize manufactured drones and build an industrial drone flight controller and management system.Join Jerry Nixon as he welcomes the CEO of DroneWorks, Hironobu Imamura as well as Microsoft Technical Evangelists Kosuke Fujimoto and Hiroshi Ota, as they discuss how they worked together on a project to develop a management solution and malfunction prediction system using Azure IoT Hub and Azure Machine Learning.[03:39] Tell us a little about DroneWorks. What do you do?[05:02] What's the difference between industrial vs. commercial drones?[06:18] What are some of the demands of flight controllers and why are they so difficult to make and make well?[07:53] Can you describe what this solution looked like as well as how you used Azure IoT hub?[09:50] When you went into this project, what were your expectations and were they met?[13:20] What kind of scenarios can you see this being used?[17:28] Describe the development experience while using new technology like Azure IoT Edge?[18:53] What plans do you have for the future of DroneWorks?Use the code and architecture from this project on GitHub, get hands on with IoT labs or start to build your own IoT solution on Azure.

The Audacity to Podcast: How to Get People to Share Your Podcast – TAP315

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 08:00:03 -0400

Word of mouth is the best way to grow your podcast. Here's how you can inspire and equip your audience to share your podcast. Make a great podcast Nothing else you can do to your podcast matters as much as making a great podcast. If your podcast is horrible, then no one will want to share it, regardless of how easy you make the process. When people consume content, they're looking for one or both of these two things: They want to be helped—inspired, educated, motivated, informed, encouraged, etc. They want to be entertained—humored, amused, provoked, engaged, etc. If your podcast doesn't do at least one of those things, then you have some important work to do. Liken your podcast to a restaurant. It doesn't matter how good their branding and marketing are, if the food and service are horrible, no one will want to eat there, let alone recommend it to others. Your audience might already be telling you how good your podcast is (or isn't) in their feedback or podcast reviews. Is your podcast actually good? Ask for shares This may seem obvious, but it's often forgotten. If you want your audience to do something, you have to ask them to do it! The first thing to do is make sure you always give value before you ask for value in return. I think many podcasters can easily fall into giving too many calls to action: subscribe, rate and review, comment, share, donate, support the sponsor, follow some recommendation, and more. So the second thing to do is stop asking your audience for so much. Reduce and simplify the things you want you audience to do. Of all the things your audience could do for you, telling others about your podcast is usually the best. That will help your podcast grow far more than ratings and reviews. How you ask is also important. Focus on the benefits your audience can give to others by sharing your podcast. Don't focus on the benefits you get. For example: Bad: “Please share the podcast so we can get more subscribers.” This focuses on what you gain. Better: “Please share the podcast so our community can grow.” This focuses more on growing the community your audience is in. Best: “If you liked this episode and think someone else would, too, please share it!” This focuses on helping your audience help others. Write descriptive, shareable titles As I teach in my SEO for Podcasters course, titles are the most important text on the Internet. By default, titles are what display in and most-affect search results, what show in podcast apps, what display largest on your website, and what share in social networks. A good title will be three things: Descriptive—making it clear what the episode (or overall podcast) is about Compelling—inspiring curiosity to relevant people Shareable—short and written without first-person pronouns For example, imagine an episode that seeks to share and review the best vanilla cream sodas. “Bottle Fights” is cute, but wouldn't describe the episode's contents. “Vanilla Cream Sodas” is more descriptive, but it wouldn't compel people to click on it. “My Favorite Vanilla Cream Sodas” is descriptive and a little more compelling, but it's not shareable because the “M[...]

Cities across Norway are seeing an average water loss of more than 30% due to leakages in their water distribution network. This represents a significant cost that ends up in the hands of consumers.

July 31-August 6 – When you work with a crew, earning the third map piece becomes easier to do. August 7-13 – Challenge yourself to earn the last piece, or else the search for lost treasure will never cease. Friend League Introduction: Hello everyone, I want to give you a quick heads up about today’s Geocaching.com update. The release includes the website’s newest feature: Friend League. The Friend League is a leaderboard that shows geocaching activity of you and your geocaching friends. If you log a cache or attend an event, you collect points in the form of gold coins. This feature goes hand in hand with The Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde. To earn the souvenir with the first map piece, you and your crew have to collect 30 gold coins during July 17-23. (Read more about the Mary Hyde souvenirs on the Geocaching Blog.) The rules for earning gold coins change every Monday at 5 am PDT (Pacific Daylight Time), Noon UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). At that time, the Friend League will refresh and the gold coin count goes back to zero. Friend League is a test feature. We’ll evaluate usage and feedback during The Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde before deciding how this functionality might be used in the future.

DevRadio (MP4) - Channel 9: Behind the Scenes: How Sensoria built a Smart, connected IoT golf grip with PGA Tour professional Bryson DeChambeau

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 13:25:28 -0400

(image)

In the game of golf, many factors impact the ability to consistently drive or putt a golf ball to its exact intended destination. One of these factors is the pressure (or force) with which the golfer grips the golf club. There are multiple theories on what the right pressure on grip should be, but they are all subjective and hard to quantify. Until now.

Join Jerry Nixon and Blain Barton as they welcome Davide Mauri, Director of Software Development & Cloud Infrastructure at Sensoria as they share with us how they developed a new high-tech IoT solution involving a smart, connected golf grip. Tune in as they discuss how they developed this “Smart Grip” solution along with professional golfer Bryson DeChambeau, which detected Bryson’s hand-on-grip position and levels of pressure, monitored his golf strokes on different clubs as well as relayed real-time data to Microsoft Azure intelligent systems.

  • [14:37]  Tell us a little bit about Sensoria. What do you do?
  • [26:18] Tell us about the IoT project you worked on with PGA Tour professional, Bryson DeChambeau?
  • [34:31] Can you describe how you created the special golf grip for the club and how you were able to collect data from it?
  • [39:20] What's next for Sensoria?

The Audacity to Podcast: The 5 Kinds of People You Should Have in Your Circle – TAP314

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 08:00:26 -0400

You are influenced by the people around you. So here is who you should have in your circle to help your podcast succeed. For the geeks, this is episode 314, which is commonly known as pi. Thus, the “circle” theme. 1. Cohosts If you have one or more cohosts, you need to be friends with them and have connections outside the podcast. This helps with the energy, flow, and experience of your podcast. Glenn the Geek, from Horse Radio Network, suggests picking the kinds of cohosts you wouldn't mind to take on vacation with you. This is a great mindset because you and your cohost need to have relationship dynamics stronger than those of mere coworkers. If you and your cohost don't have a good relationship, try to either fix that, or consider getting a new cohost. 2. Audience The people listening to and watching your podcast should be part of your circle of influence because they should be your podcast's top priority. They can inspire new content, critique new ideas, encourage perseverance, and more. When you welcome your audience into a circle with you, the stop being merely an audience and start becoming a community. And remember to never treat your audience as “below” yourself. You are a leader to your community and that could mean being only a couple steps ahead of your followers, not a tyrant lording over them. 3. Peers It's a huge help to know, talk to, and hang out with others who share your interests. These peers could be fellow podcasters across different genres, but who share the same passion for this method of sharing a message. For example, local podcaster meetups, online communities, events like Podcast Movement (use promo code “noodle” to save 10%!), or Podcasters' Society. These peers could also be people who participate within the same niche, but who may not necessarily be podcasting, too. Such as bloggers, YouTubers, companies, and such. But remember that your peers are usually not your ideal audience. This is why it's neither a generous nor profitable idea to share the latest episodes of your podcast with your peers (such as in online communities). 4. Competitors There are probably other people who podcast about the same topics you do. And yes, I think you should not only allow competition within your niche but also invite your competitors into your own circle. This requires a lot of maturity on your part and that of your competitors, but it can be profitable for both of you—in opportunities, income, and more. For example, I consider Dave Jackson a very close friend—and we're actually competitors! But that's okay because we attract different types of people and we have different approaches and offerings. But beyond the details, it's a huge relief to have someone else doing the same kind of thing I do and with whom I can relate in struggles, victories, frustrations, and more. I think your goal should be to create community and collaboration with your competitors. 5. Mentors Cohosts, audience, peers, and competitors are all mostly on equal levels w[...]

Top 5 Homeschooling Podcasts in Apple Podcasts – WHS 211 - The Wired Homeschool - Tech, Tools, & Tips for Homeschooling a Digital Generation

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 10:19:01 -0400

There is a growing number of homeschooling podcasts in Apple Podcasts (also known as iTunes) and they cover a variety of topics from the sacred to the secular. In this episode of The Wired Homeschool I’m reviewing the highest-ranked homeschooling podcasts found in Apple Podcasts (iTunes) in the K-12 category. I’ve listened to the latest episode of each podcast for five minutes. Why only five minutes? Two reasons: 1.) I don’t have 6+ hours to listen to homeschooling podcasts and 2.) the first five minutes is the amount of time I give to a new podcast before I decide to skip it or subscribe. I’ll be rating each podcast on the following criteria: quality, content, host personality, and relevance. Top 5 Homeschooling Podcasts in iTunes I opened up iTunes on my computer and navigated to the K-12 section in the podcasts directory. From there I clicked on the top podcasts and went down the list. These are the first 5 homeschooling podcasts produced by different hosts or companies that appear on the list as of 7/12/2017. I’ve listed my overall score (out of 20 total points) here in the show notes but you’ll need to listen to the podcast to get the details of the ranking. The Homeschool Solutions Show with Pam Barnhill Latest Episode: How to Create a Flexible Homeschool Plan (7/7/2017) Description: New homeschool content from top homeschool bloggers streaming straight to your earbuds every Friday. Includes blog posts from Pam Barnhill, Sarah Mackenzie, Brandy Vencel, Mystie Winckler and more. Score: 16.5 A Delectable Education Latest Episode: Form IIB Recap (7/7/2017) Description: Through weekly conversations, three moms who have studied the Charlotte Mason method of education and put her ideas into practice in their homes join together to share with one another for the benefit of listeners by giving explanations of Mason’s principles and examples of those principles put into practice out of their own teaching experience. These short discussions aim at providing information, support, and encouragement for others by unfolding the myriad aspects. Score: 14 The Mason Jar Latest Episode: On Sloyd, with Camille Malucci (7/3/2017) Description: Featuring award-winning author and speaker, Cindy Rollins, this beloved podcast is all Charlotte Mason all the time. Join Cindy and host David Kern as they (and their guest) discuss topics like narration, nature study, morning time, and more. The Mason Jar is a production of the CiRCE Institute. Score: 9 How To for the Early Years Latest Episode: The Role of Dad in Home Education: An Interview with Andrew Pudewa (6/14/2017) Description: Charlotte Mason advocated no formal education for children under age 6, so what do we do for kids younger than that? This podcast focuses on educating your child at home using the Charlotte Mason style. Score: 0 Classical Conversations Podcast Latest Episode: Book Clu[...]

The Audacity to Podcast: How to Get Press Access for Your Podcast – TAP313

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 08:00:22 -0400

Press access can get you sneak peeks, free trials, and more value for your audience. Here are 11 tips to help your podcast get these special media privileges. 1. Invest in professionalism Despite the popular advice, many people do “judge a book by its cover.” Even though this may seem wrong, as creators, it only makes sense to make the “cover” match the quality of the contents. Look at everything that could give a possible first impression about you and your podcast: Your logo Your audio branding Your production quality Your presentation skill These and more things combine to form the brand by which people perceive and recognize your podcast. It's okay to have some fun and break some rules here and there. And if you want press access, you must demonstrate a level of professionalism that will help others trust you. You don't have to spend a whole lot of money on this, but you should invest what's necessary to make you stand out—or at least stand close enough to the colleagues in your field. 2. Stay in your niche This may already be obvious to you, but it's important enough to emphasize. The press access you're pursuing must be relevant to your niche. If your podcast is primarily about video games, it may be difficult to get press screenings for movies. However, there may be times where your niche is a theme more than a media. For example, my own ONCE podcast covers ABC's TV drama Once Upon a Time. That show is about magic, fairy tales, hope, and other classic stories. So to both my audience and outsiders, it makes sense for the podcast to review movies like Beauty and the Beast, Fantastic Beasts, and Into the Woods because these movies appeal to the same audience and carry many of the same themes. 3. Keep an updated “portfolio” As they say, “it takes money to make money,” it also takes reputation to build reputation. When you approach a company and request press access, they will probably want to see samples of your other work, so they can know how professional and relevant you are. This “portfolio” of sorts can be past episodes or special posts. And you don't need special access to make these things. Review something—maybe even anything—relevant to your niche and do a great job. As with a regular portfolio or list of testimonials, you want to display your best stuff. So as you get better, update your list so you're always showing off your best work. And the portfolio can help you reach higher. For example, you may have never reviewed a theatrical movie release, but your DVD and Blu-Ray reviews can help you get there. Or you may have reviews from one field that can help you cross over into another field. I suggest adding to this “portfolio” often enough that your latest sample is not older than a year. Some places, such as the Consumer Electronics Show, w[...]

The Audacity to Podcast: The Powerful Independence of Podcasting – TAP312

Tue, 04 Jul 2017 08:00:20 -0400

While Americans celebrate their independence on July 4, we podcasters can celebrate our independence with every episode! Here's what makes the independence of podcasting so powerful. Direct connection with your audience Never before podcasting have you been able to consistently and directly communicate with a global audience using the authenticity of your own voice. Your message is being communicated directly into their ears, and often exclusively and individually. Additionally, there's no “middle man” in podcasting. Your audience can subscribe to your show from their own location and with their own app preference. They don't have to go to authorized distributors, be part of a membership, or use a particular app. Even if you never listed your podcast in catalogs, such as Apple Podcasts, your audience could still subscribe directly to your content without needing Apple's approval. Authentic passion The written word can be altered and perfected. You can write something, refine it, have others edit it, get an authority's approval, and repeat the process until everything is perfect. That doesn't really happen in podcasting. You're speaking with your voice. You can edit or script, but such things are evident in the final results. But you can't edit passion and authenticity. It's raw, relatable, and powerful. When you speak a message, even if only through audio, others can hear your confidence, your passion, and your skill to communicate. If writing was like one dimension, speaking is like three dimensions! Power of the niche I recently spoke about podcasting to a group of IT professionals—most of them above 40 years old. I asked, “How many of you played video games in the '80s?” and most of the hands went up. I then asked, “How many played video games on a computer at home during that time?” and about half the hands went up. I narrowed it down further and asked, “How many of you played on an IBM PCjr?” Then, only two hands were raised. Up until that point, the response had only been raising and lowering of hands, and maybe some grins. But then I asked those two people, “Did either of you play King's Quest on a PCjr?” And without hesitation, the one remaining person answered, “OH YEAH!” (Side note, one of my guilty-pleasure podcasts is Upper Memory Block—all about these kinds of DOS-era PC games.) There was the niche; and with it, the passion! None of those attendees expressed enthusiasm when I asked about video games during the '80s. But when I got into the niche, then someone got excited. Popular broadcast media is designed to appeal to a broad audience. It has to, or else it won't pay its own bills! But as podcasters, we can, [...]
