GCPC EPISODE 516 – The Changing Seasons of Geocaching

Want to thank Sarah for tonight’s show idea.

Concept, we talk about the weather all the time but how does it affect us as the weather changes around us?

Topics – please fill in what you would like.

What weather will you absolutely not go geocaching in? What is your favorite?
Why is it that there are so many fair weather geocachers and yet others it does not bother at all? Where do you have to come from?

How weather affects us personally during different parts of the year.

What changes in your geocaching pack during different seasons.

NEWS:

https://www.geocaching.com/blog/2017/11/celebrate-the-new-year-with-two-new-souvenirs/

2017 has been a fun year for geocaching: we celebrated 3 Million Active Geocaches, went geocaching around the globe with Where’s Signal the FrogⓇ, and found pirate booty with The Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde. But it’s time to start looking ahead.
Let’s make 2018 the best year ever! To get us off to a good start, we’re announcing two new souvenirs: one to celebrate your last cache of 2017, and one to celebrate your first cache of 2018!
How can I earn both souvenirs?
Find a geocache or attend an event on December 31, 2017 to earn the Last Cache of 2017 souvenir.
Find a geocache or attend an event on January 1, 2018 to earn the First Cache of 2018 souvenir.

The Audacity to Podcast: How to Work with Other Podcasters – TAP331

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 08:00:58 -0500

Working with other podcasters can be energizing, but it can also feed your inner troll. Here's how you can build friendships instead of enemies in podcasting. Respect One of the first times I met Dan Miller, author of 48 Days to the Work You Love, he told me of his then-upcoming 48th wedding anniversary. So I asked him what he considered the secret to his long and happy marriage. He said, “One word: respect.” Oh, how much better our world would be if we had respect—and even love—for one another! Insulting someone's intelligence or attacking their preferences won't help anyone. We must have a heart of respect for each other, and that can go very far. Treat each person individually If you hang out in online communities for long, you'll see the same questions asked several times. While you probably don't mean to, it's easy to pile up your feelings about the repetition of those questions. So when you see the thirtieth person ask the same question, it's may be easy to lash out either overtly or passively. But look at things from that person's perspective. They need help and they went to that community hoping they could get the help they needed. True, they probably could have found the solution by searching, but being in anxious need often seems to distract us from the obvious. Consider a community for podcasters. If someone comes in and asks, “How do I upload my podcast to iTunes?” and they get a flurry of harsh responses, that person may see them as saying, “You're stupid.” And then be hurt from their experience. I must honestly call myself out on this one, too. I don't think we do this kind of thing intentionally. But treat each person individually—again, with respect. Accept different methodologies Blubrry, Libsyn, SoundCloud, Anchor, Podcast Websites, SquareSpace, FeedBurner, WordPress, and much more are merely tools to accomplish certain goals within podcasting. While some tools are certainly better for certain tasks than others, that doesn't mean we must try to convert everyone to that tool. I once met a fresh new podcaster at an event. They had just started their podcast and website, and they met a vendor with a competing product to what they used. Instead of helping that podcaster understand the benefits of the competing product, that vendor came across as belittling to that podcaster, and a poor opinion was formed. Sadly, I've actually seen that happen many times, and I might have even done it myself a couple times. We don't need to act so exclusive about how to podcast. It's not a moral issue; there's no single right way to podcast—and that's what makes podcasting wonderful! So whether you're discussing PlayStation vs. Xbox, Windows vs. Linux vs. macOS, Android vs. iOS, Democrat vs. Republican, or anything else, respect others' decisions and don't try to change them (at least not right away). Even when there is only a single right way to do something (like an RSS feed with enclosures in order to get your podcast in Apple Podcasts), we don't have to be jerks about it. Foster community, not competition What do you do when you see someone else start a new podcast about your same topic? What if they get attention when you don't? How you treat your competitors is a reflection of your maturity. Sometimes, we adults can be quite childish. Instead of trying to conquer your competitors, find ways to collaborate as colleagues in a larger community (listen to episode 108 for more about that). Choose positivity Who are you going to be among other podcasters? Will you be the self-promoter? The giver? The passive-aggressive troll? The encourager? We can choose and control the attitudes we communicate. It can be a real challenge, sometimes, but that's what makes us stronger. Exchange value In a thriving community or marketplace, there's an active exchange of value. Some people deliver products, some offer services, some offer payments. Look at podcasting the same way. This doesn't mean we should all be each others' financial pa[...]

GCPC EPISODE 515 Show Notes

GCPC EPISODE 515 – What Does It Take To Make A Quality Geocaching Video?

Keeping with the spirit of the GIFFs. We thought we would give our tips and opinions on what it takes to make a quality geocaching video.

Options have changed over the years. We have the king of videos YouTube which still holds the majority of geocaching videos. Over the years we had large camcorders, smaller camcorders, Digital Cameras, Point and Shoot Cameras and of course smart phones in all shapes and sizes. – Go over what we used in the past to record videos.

When I started doing GeoSnippits back in 2008 there were only a few geocaching videos on YouTube. Now when you search you will see over 355,000!

Well, the 2017 GIFF was last weekend, forgot to mention it in last weeks show (image) I hope you all attended.

10 More Internet Safety Tips for Homeschoolers - The Wired Homeschool - Tech, Tools, & Tips for Homeschooling a Digital Generation

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 21:21:35 -0500

As our kids grow up, we begin to give them a little bit more freedom. Maybe they get a smartphone or a laptop for themselves. This can be a scary time for parents who are concerned about the safety of their children. If your teen has a device and you’re concerned about their online activity, here are 10 Internet Safety Tips for Homeschoolers that will keep teens safer online. I covered this topic in 2016 and a lot has changed since then. This list has a little bit of overlap with the previous one but it’s also more technical. Parents of teens will want to share both lists and consider whether or not there are some things they could do to model better Internet behavior. Don’t visit questionable websites File-sharing, “free” movie sites, questionable forums. Set social media accounts to private Keeps away the creepers because you have to approve them before they can follow you. Don’t post personal information online Don’t share that you’ll be at Applebee’s having dinner. Nobody needs to know that except the people you’ll be with. Protect your email account Email is the master-key to nearly all of your online accounts. It should be protected so that someone can’t use email to takeover your online accounts. Use two-factor authentication Passwords aren’t enough these days. Have a second way to verify your identity. Use a password manager If you’re going to have hard-to-guess passwords it’s a good idea to have a way to manage them. I recommend LastPass. They now have a family plan so that families can share passwords to common accounts like streaming services Don’t send sensitive information via text or email Use a private, encrypted free service like DropBox or Google Drive to send scans of documents like birth certificates or a driver’s license. Don’t open email attachments Unless someone specifically told they’d be sending you an attachment, don’t open it. In fact, if someone you know does send you one, ask them to send it through a service like Google Drive. Backup your data Many devices have built-in backup these days. Use it. Don’t click or tap on links from untrusted sources If you get a link in an email, text, or other message from an unknown or untrusted source don’t open it. Even if you know the person, if it looks fishy, it probably is. Connect Socially!

PowerPress and Community Podcast: Podcasting Around the Holidays - PowerPress Podcast

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 11:18:13 -0500

(image) Blubrry has been collecting podcasting data since day one when they started in 2005. Our statistics allows us to collect information on how people are listening – the trends, what they do, what they don’t do, etc. At the end of the day we regularly come to conclusions on this data and share it with the world. Recently, a blog post went out about some of this information, you can find it on PowerPressPodcast.com.

An RSS feed can be confusing or a hassle to some, which is why services such as feed validators are so important and utilized. Recently, Blubrry acquired widely used and highly recommeneded, Cast Feed Validator.

NaPodPoMo – Podcast for 30 days straight. This challenge is great for any podcaster, and MacKenzie has already failed at it. No worries, she has a different take on 30 days straight and will be working on a different type of podcasting initiative for the month of November.

Lastly, MacKenzie shares her podcasting chronicle – setting a second goal for herself before December. The holidays can feel like a burden for your podcast, but don’t let them get in the way – there are so many listeners out there that are utilizing their free time around the holidays to listen to new shows and catch up on old episodes.

Thanks for listening and please subscribe! If you’d like to be on the show email MacKenzie, she’s always looking for new guests.

Show notes:

FinCon: In case you missed out, it’s a financial expo for media creators in the financial industry. Lots of potential podcasters attended.
Cast Feed Validator: Now in Blubrry’s hands, with no major changes coming to the service in the near future.
Podcasting Data: Information you didn’t know you wanted about the podcasting industry. Hint, more people are listening to podcasts.
NaPodPoMo: Will you be podcasting for almost everyday of the month of November? Become a better podcaster simply by podcasting more.

Podcast Help Desk – Going Deep Into The Technology Of Podcasting: Recording Equipment for Your Podcast – PHD102

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 11:08:00 -0500

News: Blubrry/RawVoice has acquired Cast Feed Validator (castfeedvalidator.com)

Recording Equipment

You do not need anything a smartphone to start podcasting.  Some people have good luck with just a smartphone and if done right, they can record a good show with just that.

  • Microphones.  I suggest NOT getting a USB Condenser mic  Go for a dynamic mic.  ATR2100 is a good starter mic if you have to use USB.  You can go with a more expensive microphone and use a USB interface.
  • Mixer –  You don’t *have* to have a mixer, but it can help.  It allows more than one mic to be plugged in.  It has mic Preamps. The little more expensive ones will allow a Mix-Minus. (a whole nother episode)
  • Software  Audacity is free, Garageband is free with a Mac (so not free).  Audition is $15 a month.  Hindenburg journalist is expensive.
  • You really don’t need much else.
  • The whole idea is to get something that will give you a clean audio recording.  No need for the fancy stuff.

    If you want to get fancy

  • Compressor limiter gate

  • Equalizer
  • Sound treatment
  • External recorder deck / Portable recorder

  • Boom arm for the mic
  • Broadcast headset (with or without mic)
  • What equipment you get is totally dependant on Budget and what type of podcast you are going to do.   

    If you are going to have a remote co-host or if you are going to interview people, I suggest a real mixer (not the cheapest one).  You really don’t want to depend totally on software to record skype.

    Auphonic is a great way to level your sound out after you have edited.

    The Audacity to Podcast: Why Feed Hits and Monthly Downloads are Meaningless Podcast Stats – TAP330

    Tue, 07 Nov 2017 08:00:49 -0500

    Feed hits and monthly downloads are two podcast stats the may confuse or mislead podcasters. Here's why you should never rely on these meaningless numbers. Why feed hits are a meaningless stat Every time a podcast app check for new episodes, it's checking for updated information from your RSS feed. That counts as a feed hit each time. Tools like FeedBurner, FeedBlitz, and some startup podcast hosting companies may offer stats on how many times your feed is loaded. But such a stat doesn't tell you the true size of your audience, for the following six reasons. 1. There is no measurement standard Unlike the industry standard we have for measuring podcast downloads, there is no association setting a standard or guideline for measuring feed hits. For example, should only full downloads of the feed be counted, or should head requests (probably checking the “Last-Modified” date) be counted, too? 2. Apps refresh feeds throughout the day Whereas a podcast episode is usually downloaded only once, a podcast RSS feed will be loaded multiple times. Some apps refresh the feed every hour. Some apps refresh even more frequently than that! This then requires more filtering to reduce the excessive duplication by IP address. 3. There's no way to track a single device across multiple IP addresses Speaking of IP addresses, most mobile devices will probably have at least three different IP addresses in an average day: one for home, one for work, and one for mobile. But there could be even more if your mobile device automatically connects to additional wifi networks (such as a store, a coffee shop, a friends house, etc.). And if you leave a particular region, it's likely your mobile data provider will give your device a new IP address as the location changes. For media downloads, this kind of IP address behavior can be accounted for with some different filtering and crossreferencing. Even at the simplest level of measurement, podcast apps will download an episode only once unless the user forces it to redownload. But since mobile devices refresh the feeds throughout the day and their IP addresses change as their location changes, a single device could show up as multiple devices based on RSS feed hits. 4. Feed traffic varies every day Podcast RSS feeds are only checked based on app settings and user interaction. This usually results in lower activity on the weekends. Measuring RSS feed hits would make it seem like your audience unsubscribes on the weekends. Many website statistics tools, such as Google Analytics, will track a user across multiple visits, so it's easy to see how many unique visits you had across time (such as a week or month). But FeedBurner and other RSS tools don't offer such tracking, and thus report only a daily number or an average across days (but not tied to actual users). 5. Feed stats exclude non-RSS plays Trying to measure “subscribers” raises the question, what really is a “subscriber”? While it may seem reasonable to say anyone who has pressed “Subscribe” on your podcast is a subscriber, that excludes many loyal audience members. Some people will faithfully visit your website and press play on your latest episodes. Some people will watch or listen on social networks. Some people will add your podcast to their app without actually subscribing to it. Some people use apps or services that subscribe to your feed only once for thousands of users (such as Stitcher, iHeartRadio, or Google Play Music). People on those platforms could still be loyal consumers of your podcast, but they're not individually subscribed to your own RSS feed. Thus, anything that tracks you audience through RSS hits or downloads will not count any of these other loyal fans. 6. iOS 11 refreshes feeds repeatedly (possible bug) Lastly, Apple Podcasts in iOS [...]

    The Audacity to Podcast: Journey inside the podcasting business with this new daily podcast

    Fri, 03 Nov 2017 10:25:05 -0400

    November is National Podcast Post Month (#NaPodPoMo) and I decided to participate by not only publishing a daily podcast episode, but launching a whole new show!

    Journey inside the podcasting business with me, Daniel J. Lewis, host of The Audacity to Podcast. I'll share behind-the-scenes peeks at how I run my podcasting business of helping podcasters. You'll learn about the tools I use, how I delegate and work with others, how I market, and more!

    This show will run every day during NaPodPoMo, but may even continue after that.

    The show is so new, raw, and authentic it doesn't even have cover art yet!

    Despite all the ways Anchor is currently bad for podcasting, I chose to use Anchor for the quick simplicity.

    Comment below or tweet me if there's something specific you'd like to know about running a podcasting business!

    The GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Geocaching Insights – A tutorial podcast about geocaching. Sponsored by: GxProxy.com and CoinsAndPins.com Geocache Types and Sizes – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 217 In tonight’s episode of the GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Geocaching Insights hosts Andy HeadHardHat Smith and Wife Amy the HeadHardHatress discuss geocache basics 101. Geocache sizes and types. Plus some new information from Geocaching HQ. Meet up at http://geosnippits.com/gsreboot-podcast/ or go to geosnippits.com and click the GSREBOOT PODCAST option in the menu to see the LIVE viewing area to watch as we record the show and also join in our world wide chat room with geocachers from around the planet. Podcast starts at 8:00PM ET. Come join in the fun! Please share this with others. #geocaching #geosnippits #headhardhat #podcast ——————————————————————- SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 217 Geocache Types and Sizes – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 217 Part One: Message Center now accepts additional file types There are many good reasons to make use of the Message Center, because there is so much to talk about when it comes to geocaching: It’s a great way to plan geocaching outings with your friends. A good way to ask a friend for suggestions about the best geocaches in your area. You can get a hint from the cache owner for an especially tricky hide. And, because the Message Center is available in the Geocaching® app, you can submit your answers for Virtuals and EarthCaches right in the field. We know that geocaching is better when players communicate with each other so we wanted to make that easier. The challenge, after all, should be in the adventure and not in the tools you use. That’s why we took some time to update and improve the Message Center. With the latest update, you can now send file types such as pdf, doc, or docx* in addition to images to other geocachers. We also cleaned up the look to make it all about your content. If you like even less clutter, you can clean up your inbox by hiding any message. *This functionality is currently not available in the Geocaching® app. We added the ability to forward all messages to email. By toggling this setting “on,” messages you create in the Message Center on Geocaching.com and in the Geocaching® app will automatically be forwarded to your email. Forwarding messages to your email makes searching for previous messages much easier. To enable email forwarding, select the settings button in Message Center and check the Forward messages to email box. Additionally, we made the Message Center a lot more reliable by fixing several bugs. There had been some irregularities with message being displayed as unread, that were read, and conversations out of order. These have all been addressed with this release. Now you can concentrate on the content of your message – rather than the bugs. Let your friends know about the updated Message Center by writing them a message right now.

INFO: If you’re going on a road trip with one or more friends, how do you split the costs? Equal shares? Driver has the running costs of the car, so the passengers buy petrol / lunch / coffees etc? Something else entirely? What do you do if someone else joins the group for the day? Not sure there’s any one correct answer, but I thought it would be interesting to discuss. ——————————————————————- NEWS: Message Center now accepts additional file types There are many good reasons to make use of the Message Center, because there is so much to talk about when it comes to geocaching: It’s a great way to plan geocaching outings with your friends. A good way to ask a friend for suggestions about the best geocaches in your area. You can get a hint from the cache owner for an especially tricky hide. And, because the Message Center is available in the Geocaching® app, you can submit your answers for Virtuals and EarthCaches right in the field. We know that geocaching is better when players communicate with each other so we wanted to make that easier. The challenge, after all, should be in the adventure and not in the tools you use. That’s why we took some time to update and improve the Message Center. ——————————————————————- GCPC Mailbag…Send your geocaching email to: GCPCMailbag@gmail.com Hello Geocaching Podcasters, It is good to see that the podcast has resumed after being in hiatus. InfoFerret seems to have had quite a time traveling in Europe, and I too am surprised at the amount of vacation time she earns. Hopefully the smoke from the California wine country fires is no longer an issue for Taz, One day I walked out of a building and the smell of that smoke was instantly noticeable, even though I would have to drive for a few hours to reach the area. I hope to see you again soon, but don’t let the show stress any of you out. Steven geocaching name: stevenw54 Hi there! So glad you guys are back– I’ve missed you! I was listening to this week’s and heard Chad talking about the new geo-checker. He had a complaint and also a point about challenge caches. His complaint was about the format of the checker and not being able to easily copy and paste into the “Personal Notes” section. He is right, and this is annoying. However, when you get a positive answer from the checker, it updates the “Corr[...]

    The Audacity to Podcast: Should You Launch a Podcast with Multiple Episodes? – TAP329

    Tue, 31 Oct 2017 08:00:01 -0400

    A podcast launch can be fun and jumpstart momentum for growth. Starting your podcasting with multiple episodes is often advised, but is it right for you? Don't believe the myths about launching with multiple episodes You may hear some “gurus” and “marketing experts” say you must launch with multiple episodes in order for your podcast to succeed. But that's a big myth that shows up in three different ways: Myth: More episodes help the podcast get featured in “New & Noteworthy” “New & Noteworthy” (N&N) is a combination of two kinds of podcasts: those that are new, and those that are noteworthy. Apple has 100% editorial control over what appears in N&N. If you actually look closely at podcasts in there, you'll see old and new podcasts, and you'll see some podcasts with only one episode, others with more. Myth: More episodes make the podcast rank better Podcast ranking is based on subscriptions, not episodes. However, there is a very small, indirect truth to this myth. More episodes provide more keywords for search, which can make your podcast show up in more relevant searches when you have more episodes, but your position in such results is not based on the number of episodes. Myth: More episodes mean more downloads The default behavior of most podcast apps is to download only the latest episode of a podcast when subscribed. So merely launching with more episodes doesn't mean they'll all be downloaded; they'll only be available to be downloaded if your new subscriber chooses to do so. How many episodes should you launch with? One episode is all that's required to get your podcast in nearly all apps and directories. And it doesn't even have to be a full episode! With iOS 11, Apple now provides a “trailer” episode type you can use. But even without that, your first episode could be a 30–60-second trailer of the podcast yet to come. This is not an “episode 0.” Most of these end up being all about the podcaster and what's to come. I think these kinds of self-centered episodes are a waste of opportunity and time. If you want to build excitement for the upcoming podcast, do that in 30–60 seconds. But make your first episode deliver so much value your audience will feel compelled to subscribe. So when I'm referring to launching with multiple episodes, how many should that be? I will be basing the following benefits and disadvantages on launching with 3–5 episodes. I think that's a good number because it's small enough that can do it quickly but large enough that it gives your audience a great taste of your podcast and gives you more opportunities. However, my advice does exclude the “seasonal dump” approach of publishing an entire season of episodes all at once (such as S-Town, ConversionCast, and some Netflix or Amazon Prime shows). Benefits of launching with multiple episodes The decision of launching with only one or with multiple episodes is up to you. I will share benefits and disadvantages I see, but the mere number of one or the other shouldn't be your deciding factor. You must decide what's right for yourself, your podcast, and your audience. 1. Showcases more of your content Assuming you have good episode titles, launching with multiple episodes gives potential subscribers a good view of what your podcast is about. They can preview your topics without having to read your podcast's description. 2. Boosts search-engine optimization (SEO) In Apple Podcasts, some other podcast apps, and website search engines, each episode and accompanying post contribute to the findability of that podcast. For example, even if y[...]

    The Audacity to Podcast: 8 Things to Check with Your Media Host’s Podcast RSS Feed – TAP328

    Tue, 24 Oct 2017 08:00:28 -0400

    Regardless of who you use to host your podcast media and generate your podcast RSS feed, check these eight things to own your platform. Episode 270 will help you decide whether you show use your media host to also create your RSS feed, or host it yourself. 1. Check which RSS feed is actually being used I'm surprised how often podcasters either don't know which feed Apple Podcasts and other apps are actually using or they don't even know their own RSS feed URL! Regardless of your own situation (I'll assume the best about you), here are a few ways to check what feed is being used. Log in to Podcasts Connect, click on your podcast, and look at the “URL” field. Use this tool by Regan Starr to search for your podcast by title or author and see what feed is listed. (Sometimes, you have to re-enter the search if no results show.) Subscribe to your podcast in the app and you may have an option to copy or see the feed URL. (In iTunes, right-click your podcast in your subscriptions and click “Copy Podcast URL.”) Subscribe to your podcast in the app, export your subscriptions to an OPML file, open that file in a text-editor, look for your podcast name and the feed URL after xmlUrl= in the same block. Feed URL changes from redirects or the  tag may take up to a couple days to be reflected in podcast apps and catalogs. 2. Check who controls the Apple Podcasts Connect account Without control of your podcast in Apple Podcast Connect, you won't be able to fix Apple compliance issues, you won't be able to refresh your catalog listing, and you won't be able to see your podcast analytics from Apple. Most likely, this isn't a concern for you because no good podcast host submits their clients' podcasts to Apple. If a company does do this, then they're not a good podcast host! Apple is in the slow process of verifying and moving podcasts between Apple IDs (or assigning them where missing). So please be patient with their team. I suggest waiting until the second quarter of 2018 before you contact Apple to change or add your Apple ID. 3. Check whether you can redirect the RSS feed Although we can debate the finely detailed definition of “owning” and “controlling” your podcast RSS feed, I think the most important requirement is the ability to redirect your feed to somewhere else. This level of control ensures you can move your podcast feed to anything else and take your audience with you. Ideally, this redirect should be three things: A 301 permanent redirect (not 307 temporary)—All my top-recommended hosting companies do this Remain in place even after you cancel your service (forever is best)—Some companies (Libsyn is one of them) may charge extra for this An option you can set yourself (with several safety precautions)—This is quite mixed with companies and it probably depends on your account status Learn more about the different types of redirects in episode 280. 4. Check that your email address is in the feed Even if you don't control the Apple ID used to submit your podcast to Apple, it's easy to verify ownership and stay informed about issues with your podcast when your email address is in the RSS feed. There are two places an email address appears in a podcast feed: The  tag inside the  block—This is the most important. The  tag—this is less important, but still best to be your email a[...]

    DevRadio (MP4) - Channel 9: Behind the Scenes: How Weill Cornell Medicine built a chatbot for clinicians to gain fast access to medical data

    Tue, 17 Oct 2017 14:40:05 -0400

    (image)

    Microsoft joined the Englander Institute of Precision Medicine (IPM) at Weill Cornell Medicine for a weeklong hackfest to develop a chatbot that supports both text and voice interactions with the Precision Medicine Knowledgebase (PMKB) for clinical cancer variants and interpretations.

    The knowledge base currently supports 163 genes and 518 variants with 404 clinical interpretations. Pathologists and researchers are tasked with accessing this information by clicking through the given portal; however, in an attempt to make the knowledge base more mobile, the team created a bot using the Microsoft Bot Framework that connects to several channels including Microsoft Teams, Skype, Slack, and WebChat. As a result, clinicians can now access this data in many different ways and make life-changing clinical decisions at a faster rate.

    Join Jerry Nixon and Heather Shapiro as they welcome Alex Sigaras from Weill Cornell Medicine as they walk us through the project and describe how they built their chatbot using various Microsoft technologies.

    • [01:04] Talk to us a little bit about the Microsoft Bot Framework. What is it and what is it not?

    The Audacity to Podcast: Podcasting Lessons from a Binge-Listener – TAP327

    Tue, 17 Oct 2017 08:00:34 -0400

    Podcasting is a time-shifted media. While many subscribers will consume podcast episodes as they're released, some fans will binge on all your content, which can reveal some areas to improve your podcast. I use my own My Podcast Reviews account to automatically collect and notify me of reviews from all 155 Apple Podcasts catalogs. The reviews are usually positive and encouraging. Even though they're reviews on my podcast, they often include insights you can apply in your own podcasting. On September 5, Damian, from the USA and host of Adventures in Erylia, wrote the following 4-star review for The Audacity to Podcast (contains minor edits for clarity). There are some great podcasting lessons in here! Great Content, But I Miss The More Amateur Vibe I'll preface this by saying, my listening habits and experiences are far from the norm. I began listening to The Audacity To Podcast [TAP] in early July. It is now early September and I am caught up. That's right, in about 2 months, I have listened to over 300 episodes of TAP. I'll start with the good. Daniel is very good at what he does: presenting. You don't listen to someone talk in your ear for 200 hours if they aren't a good presenter. He is extremely knowledgable at his topics. I have learned so much information that I can, and am, using to improve my podcast since listening to his show. TAP is what gave me the drive to stop pointing my podcast domain at free services and get my own webhost and my own wordpress site up and running. It is still a work in progress. I learned about Chris' Dynamic Compressor and feel that using that has greatly increased my sound. I've been learning all sorts of tips and tricks for my SEO and how to market myself and my podcast. I have binged through everything and the content is so good I will continue being a loyal listener. However, the show isn't without what I would consider some faults. In the beginning, the ads for Citrix drove me crazy. Keep in mind, I was hearing a new, ham-fisted, Citrix ad every hour for days on end while listening through, while if you listened early on or at a slower pace, it's only once a week. It really bummed me out when Daniel made the switch from Audacity to Audition. I get that this was a good move for him, but to me, this was the beginning of the show losing it's amateur feel. I use Audacity, largely because I can't afford to move to something like Audition, and Daniel's use of Audacity, as well as his routine of focusing on how to use it every 5 episodes really connected me to the show and told me that I could have a successful and profitable podcast with this free software. That being said, if I could afford the switch, I'd look into it, too. My biggest criticism of TAP is his cross- and self-promotion. I don't mind his promotions for My Podcast Reviews so much because of a few pieces of criteria, but I can't stand the ads for Podcasters' Society. My Podcast Reviews gets a large pass for me because Daniel does offer a free version that you can use to get a feel for the tool and see what value it brings to you. I am signed up for it, though I am haven't gotten any reviews from foreign stores to really benefit from it so far. I also enjoy his usual way of promoting it, by reading some of these reviews and promoting the shows of those that leave him a review. Sometimes when he tr[...]

    The Audacity to Podcast: How YOU Can Help Podcasting Grow – TAP326

    Wed, 04 Oct 2017 11:18:37 -0400

    Podcasting is unlike any other media. This is why its year-over-year growth has been more gradual than anything else. We may never see a “hockey-stick” spike, but you, as a fan or a creator, are the most powerful influence to bring more people to podcasts. For this presentation from International Podcast Day, I'm joined by Elsie Escobar (@yogeek), cohost of The Feed and She Podcasts, and one of the experts from Podcasters' Society. Much of this information has matured since my previous episode, “How to Help the Podcasting Industry Grow” (episode 265). You have the most power to help podcasting grow Because podcasting is a grassroots industry, we independent content-creators and podcast-fans are the best evangelists to encourage more people to try a podcast. 1. Share and talk about your favorite podcasts Like how you talk about your favorite TV shows, movies, and music with friends, family and coworkers, include podcasts in those conversations! Especially with today's political environment, it could be great to offer content relevant to current conversations, but without all the definite big-media bias or limited coverage. 2. Explain the podcast content, not the podcasting technology While there is a place to walk people through the technology of podcasts and how to subscribe, the most important thing is to get people interested in the content. Do your favorite podcasts make you laugh? Do they encourage you to become better? Do they motivate or equip you? Sharing these are more engaging than explains RSS feeds, enclosures, downloads, and more. You can even help attach this content to a trigger, like commuting or doing a chore. Explain the content you can enjoy during those mundane activities. 3. Simplify the podcast-consumption experience Instead of simply referencing podcast apps like Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Play Music, or more, point others directly to where they can listen—even if that doesn't mean subscribing yet. For example, you could share the direct link to your media file, so no matter where they are, they can click and listen. You could rotate through different types of links, such as direct media URL, link to Apple Podcasts for their iOS device, a link to your website with an obvious player, and so on. 4. Help people find podcasts they'll like Often, your podcast may be irrelevant to the person you're talking to. So it's more important to help podcasts grow, and not grow your own podcast. Ask about hobbies, favorite TV shows, work industry and suggest podcasts that fit those interests. You could even keep in mind a few general-interest podcasts you can recommend, such as The Story Behind.  Pay attention to other places where independent podcasters share their shows, or even places like New & Noteworthy, to know what podcasts could be great to recommend. Also consider having a list of kid-friendly podcasts you can recommend, as many parents may be interested in playing podcasts for their kids (through a mobile device or smart speaker). You want someone else's podcast to be something so relevant to them, [...]

    The Audacity to Podcast: How to Support Your Podcast Audience on Android – TAP325

    Tue, 03 Oct 2017 10:15:07 -0400

    Apple products get a lot of attention in the podcasting space, but iOS is actually not the most popular mobile operating system. Here's how you can ensure you don't forget your Android podcast fans! 1. Respect Android and its users Data from Edison Research, Blubrry, and Libsyn continue to show Apple devices dominate podcast consumption by huge numbers. But there are far more Android devices than iOS devices. Have you heard the story of the two shoemakers in a foreign country? One shoemaker arrives and notices the natives are all barefoot, so with a voice of defeat, he calls his supplier and says, “Forget it. No one wears shoes here. This is a failure.” That's how many podcasters look at Android users. They think something like, “They represent such a small portion of the podcast audience, so why bother reaching them?” But the other shoemaker has a different worldview. He arrives in the same foreign country and also notices natives are all barefoot. But this shoemaker eagerly calls his supplier and says, “No one wears shoes here! SEND ME EVERYTHING YOU HAVE!” It's a difference of perspective. You might disrespect Android users and assume they're not the “type” of people to consume podcasts. While that may be true in some cases, the stereotype doesn't apply to all Android users. Perhaps the reason most podcast consumption happens on an Apple device is based on the early history and corporate level of support for podcasts. But this is no reason to ignore or especially not to alienate a huge potential audience for your podcast. Imagine getting as many Android subscribers to your podcast as you have iOS subscribers. You would probably see at least a 50% increase in your audience size. Isn't that worth the work? 2. Don't focus so much on “iTunes” One of the big ways we tend to alienate our potential audience of Android users is by pushing “iTunes.” First of all, we should stop saying “iTunes” when we really mean “Apple Podcasts,” since podcasts are not consumed in iTunes on the majority of Apple devices. And if Apple ever releases some kind of podcast-consumption option for Android, it's likely to be called “Apple Podcasts,” and not iTunes. Branding aside, referring so much to iTunes—both in encouraging subscriptions and in asking for ratings and reviews—is instantly excluding anyone listening or watching through an Android device. Keep in mind ratings and reviews do not affect your ranking in almost any podcast app. But if you're going to ask for ratings and reviews, remember to offer an Android option, such as Stitcher. And don't worry about having yet another place to check your podcast reviews, because My Podcast Reviews has been able to automatically collect your Stitcher reviews for years. So I recommend either excluding mention of specific apps or platforms altogether, or being more inclusive of popular Android options whenever you mention “Apple Podcasts” (or “iTunes,” if you keep accidentally saying t[...]

    Osmo Genius Kit Review – WHS 216 - The Wired Homeschool - Tech, Tools, & Tips for Homeschooling a Digital Generation

    Sat, 30 Sep 2017 06:34:33 -0400

    The Osmo Genius Kit includes 5 hands-on games that foster creativity & problem solving skills: Masterpiece, Newton, Tangram, Numbers, and Words. In this episode of The Wired Homeschool I’ll share my thoughts on the Osmo Genius Kit and preview some upcoming episodes. Thanks to my Patrons for supporting this episode: Aaron, Lori, Matt, & Winston. Your continued support on Patreon helps make this podcast possible. What Comes in the Box Included in the kit is the Osmo base (stand & reflector), and three boxes of game pieces for Tangram, Numbers, and Words. Masterpiece and Newton can be played with a piece of paper. Tangram Arrange tangible puzzle pieces into matching on-screen shapes. Play with a friend or challenge yourself to more advanced levels as your handy-work lights up with each victory. For iPad and iPhone (iPhone base sold separately). Suggested ages: 6-12. Even adults can have fun with this game. Tangram helps kids with spatial thinking and it’s fun to play. Numbers Kids arrange physical tiles, including dots and digits, to make numbers and complete levels. Add by putting more tiles, subtract by removing tiles and multiply by connecting tiles together. Experimenting becomes fast and intuitive. For iPad and iPhone (iPhone base sold separately). Suggested ages: 6-12. With Numbers kids can learn how to add, subtract, and multiply without the pressure of timers. Kids discover there are multiple ways to solve problems. Words Look at the on-screen clue to guess the secret word, and zoom letter tiles into the play space to spell your answer. Each letter you get right appears on screen, until eventually the entire word is revealed. Altogether, Words is fast-paced, challenging, and F-U-N. For iPad and iPhone (iPhone base sold separately). Suggested ages: 6-12. Osmo recently added an adventure mode to Words. It adds a gaming element that will have kids wanting to play more. Masterpiece Pick something to draw: a picture of a friend, a favorite cartoon, or even a photo you snap yourself. Or browse through our collection of ready-to-draw options. The possibilities are infinite. For iPad and iPhone (iPhone base sold separately). Suggested ages: 6-12. This “game” is magic. Osmo managed to find a way to make drawing fun for people who think they can’t draw. The provided drawings are great but you can have the game create a drawing for you from a picture or object. I suggest using a small white board with erasable markers for this game. Newton Use your creative noggin and inventive objects like a hand-drawn basket, grandma’s glasses, dad’s keys, or anything around you to guide falling on-screen balls into targeted zones. For iPad and iPhone (iPhone base sold separately). Suggested ages: 6-12. Parents will have fun with this one too. Again, a white board is suggested for this game. You could also get the Osmo Creative Set which compliments Newton and Masterpiece nicely. Final Thoughts All of the games included in[...]

    Geocaching Podcast: GCPC EPISODE 512 – How To Handle A Rogue Geocacher

    Wed, 27 Sep 2017 23:19:58 -0400

    September 27th, 2017 In tonight’s episode of the Geocaching Podcast: The hosts take on a question from one of our listeners asking about how to handle a rogue geocacher. In other words when geocachers go bad. This opens up an interesting set of discussion. Be sure to check it out! Please share with other geocachers.

See you there! #geocaching #geocachingpodcast #headhardhat #podcast ——————————————————————- The Video Version of our Podcast GCPC EPISODE 512 Show Notes GCPC EPISODE 512 – How to Handle A Rogue Geocacher I have just finished watching this weeks show and as usual, it was awesome. I have an idea for one of your future topics. How to best handle a “rogue” geocacher, especially when they are a premium member. I recently encountered a new geocacher with hardly any finds that is a premium member. They logged a couple of my caches with language that was very inappropriate. I realized they were new cachers and sent them a private message asking very nicely to please be careful with their language while writing the logs, as other cachers read them and sometimes children or young people may read them as well. I was then responded to with a rage of inappropriate accusations and bad language. I immediately realized where this was going and responded with, this conversation is ended. I then remove their logs on my caches. Within a couple days I was getting logs messages from other cachers stating that some of my caches had been destroyed. Although I am sure it was this “rogue” cacher, I could not prove it. This has since stopped and I have checked this person’s profile and noticed they have never logged any more finds. I assume they felt that geocaching was not for them. I’m sure this does not happen often but I am curious on how you folks think this type of thing should be handled.

    The Audacity to Podcast: Why iOS 11 Is Great for Podcasts and Podcasting – TAP324

    Tue, 26 Sep 2017 08:00:55 -0400

    Apple released iOS 11 on September 19 for iPhones and iPads. It brings many new features to support podcasting and improve podcast consumption! Here's what I think you should love. Improvements for consuming podcasts Most of Apple's improvements to the Podcasts app in iOS 11 are designed to improve the experience for users. And I think we should all be advocates for making things easier for the audience. The new seasons and serial features make it easy for someone to enjoy a podcast in the right order and not miss anything. The new bonus and trailer episode types make it easier to preview a podcast and enjoy extra content. And the app leverages new and existing tags to enhance the browsing and listening experience by displaying episode types, episode numbers, teaser text, full show notes, and an option to visit the episode's webpage. As a podcaster, you don't have to update all your old episodes to use the new features, but doing so could make your podcast appear a lot nicer in the app. If you have a seasonal show, I definitely recommend assigning at least the most recent one or two seasons. New and upcoming Siri integrations Siri's default English voice sounds more natural in iOS 11, but she can do more, too! Try saying, “Hey, Siri. Subscribe to The Audacity to Podcast.” She'll find the top podcast match, read the title and author to you, and ask you whether you want to subscribe. (You can also say, “Play the latest episode of The Audacity to Podcast,” and she'll do it, but that was available before iOS 11.) Now that Apple supports an episode number tag in the RSS feed, I expect you'll eventually be able to ask Siri to play a specific episode or season of a podcast. iOS 11 also opened more support for developers to integrate with Siri. For example, you can tell Siri to make a new note in Evernote. I'm sure other podcast-app developers will work to integrate Siri into their systems, too. Easier rating and reviewing Before iOS 11, rating and reviewing a podcast on a mobile device was a huge pain. Even though I recommended pointing people to your iTunes URL (I hope with a friendly /itunes URL on your domain), that might behave weirdly: If they weren't already subscribed to the podcast in Apple Podcasts, your iTunes link would take them to your podcast in the Apple Podcasts catalog and they could find the area to rate or review. If they were already subscribed to the podcast in Apple Podcasts, your iTunes link would take them to your podcast in their subscription library in Apple Podcasts. But there was no way to rate or review from there! Thus, the only ways you could ensure they would get to an area to rate and review would be to use a complicated URL hack or to tell them to find your podcast with a search in the Podcasts app! But in iOS 11, existing ratings and reviews along with the ability to rate and review appear with the podcast in both the catalog and in y[...]

    The Audacity to Podcast: Should You Podcast with a Cohost? – TAP323

    Tue, 19 Sep 2017 08:00:27 -0400

    Should you podcast alone, or get a cohost? Cohosts can make some things easier, some things harder. Here's help you to pick what's right for your podcasting. Potential benefits podcasting with a cohost First, let's focus on the positives, and probably the reasons you're thinking of podcasting with a cohost. 1. A cohost can bring additional content and perspective Unless you have a mental clone, another person on your podcast will have a different perspective from different experience. This could be in small areas like seeing something you missed, or in big areas like holding a drastically different set of beliefs. This variety brings more ideas and a more thorough approach to content. For example, one of our ONCE podcast cohosts studied Greek mythology. When the Once Upon a Time TV show had a story arc deep in Greek mythology, she brought fantastic expertise and perspective to our conversations! What would have taken me time to research and understand (if I even recognized things), she was able to explain from the knowledge she already had. Here are several tools I recommend for collaborating with cohosts (episode 220). 2. A cohost can create dialogue It takes a lot of intentional practice and personal development to monologue well. But even when you're good at talking by yourself, energy can be missing. For example, comedy is a lot easier when there's someone else to laugh at your story or punchline. Without that instant feedback, your timing could be all wrong or you may undermine your own comedy (such as with an “uh” while you wait for the joke to hit). Monologues aren't bad. But dialogues can be a whole lot more authentic and personable. Thus, they can be more entertaining or more engaging for your audience. Dialogues can also help your audience feel more represented. Your cohost could ask you the same questions your audience might be asking. When I did my epic 10th-anniversary podcast episode (#301) with my wife, Jenny, I first imagined it being an interview with her asking me questions. But when we sat and recorded for nearly six hours (often interrupted by Noodle Baby), I feel like my stories became a whole lot more conversational, even though Jenny spoke actually very little in that episode. Simply her being there and being part of the conversation made it a whole lot more natural. A lecture-style podcast, like The Audacity to Podcast, is not the only way to teach. You can teach through dialogue or even a shared presentation. 3. A cohost can share podcasting responsibilities I think a lot of starting podcasters don't have realistic expectations for how much work creating and growing a successful podcast can take. Most of us can't simply record and publish in a single sitting wit[...]
