    133: Turn Off the Mic., There's No Money in Podcasting.

    133: Turn Off the Mic., There's No Money in Podcasting.

    Don't start a podcast in order to make money, there's no here to be made. Or so they say. What does making money in podcasting really mean and is there a chance to earn cash from your podcast?
    Join Ray, Dave, Daniel, Eric Hunley, James Thomas to answer the question of can you make money in podcasting as well as a discussion around the articles linked below.
    Articles Discussed:
    Title: Adblock Radio is an Adblocker for Live Radio Streams and Podcasts
    Main Takeaway: The creator is a bit of a jerk. He goes nuts trying to cover for the fact that he just wants to skip ads. Loudness wars?! Pfft! “He also feels that ads try to trigger impulse buying by exploiting our emotions and serendipitous discovery, short circuiting our rational thoughts.”

    Title: You’ll Never Make Money Podcasting
    Main Takeaway: This has some folks irritated and I can see where it is not completely accurate but it may still be good for setting expectations low.

    Title: How to get your podcast heard
    Main Takeaway: There are many podcast pundits in the wild who may be misleading or building hope in podcasters who are unwilling to do the work to get their name out there. It takes time, dedication and perseverance. 
    BTW: Doing the podcast that I do I find that I have to deal with issues Stateside-side podcasters rarely have to worry about (ie: time, location, language, third-world Internet problems, local political events and regulations).

    Title: How to make your podcast stand out
    Main Takeaway: This is an issue that is always on my mind. Not all podcast topics or niches will bring in thousands of listeners. The truth is some topics and niches have a small sample area. Maybe the key is to remember that most podcasters should look at their podcast as a tool to promote other things like  a product, service, foundation or club.

    Title: Podcasts Are Getting Attacked With Negative Reviews With No Help in Sight
    Main Takeaway: if platforms such as Facebook and Yelp detect a business is being unfairly targeted with negative reviews they’ll temporarily suspend the ability to leave reviews. Me? Remove reviews altogether. Do we need them?

    132: Exclusive Podcasts. An Oxymoron?

    132: Exclusive Podcasts. An Oxymoron?

    Is Apple going to start investing money in original podcasts? Spotify, Luminary, Stitcher, there are plenty of places that have podcasts that can only be consumed on a their own platform. Is that really a podcast? Does it matter if it's not? 
    Join Ray, Dave, Daniel and Stephanie Fuccio to answer the question of whether Apple investing in podcast programming would be a good thing either for them or the podcast space.

Customer Reviews

Not mental ,

Always a great listen

Outstanding podcast about podcasting. Great hosts, proper podcaster guests, super discussion.

Phil Olson - virtual-pizza.com ,

Brilliant roundtable discussions

The roundtable specifically for podcasters. Great topics, great guests, host Ray Ortega masterfully corrals the mob into a very informative and entertaining show.

Great Debate on Podcasting

Ray Ortega is the anchor of the Podcasters' Roundtable and he does a fantastic job of keeping the panel in order! Daniel J Lewis is the co-host with people like Dave Jackson virtually full-time fixtures. The rest of the panel is a cross section of anyone and everyone who has a podcast - it changes every time. Perhaps, you could be on there next? Each episode there is a topic up for discussion, which is debated over the course of an hour. As well as being very engaging it's also quite funny at times. This is what happens when you get lots of podcasters in a Google+ Hangout!
