    Amazon Halo Review

    Amazon Halo Review

    Amazon just released its version of a "Fitbit" called Amazon Halo. One of the main reasons I got it, and the reason I'm talking about it here, is because, unlike a Fitbit, Amazon Halo will analyze your voice.
    Here's how Amazon describes this feature: "Analyze qualities of your voice like energy and positivity to help strengthen communication."
    Sounds like something that might be helpful to someone who uses his voice to make a living, right?
    I talk about my "voice analysis" experience on this episode.
    Amazon Halo also measures your sleep and its quality. And tells you how fat you are. And gives you a ton of other date to be obsessive over.
    I talk about that too.
    It it helpful? Yes. Is it for you? Maybe.

    5 Podcasting Lessons From Mike Pence

    5 Podcasting Lessons From Mike Pence

    Mike Pence doesn't seem to talk a lot. You see a lot of photos of him, but he's usually behind Donald Trump and he doesn't say much.
    But before Mike Pence was Vice President, he was a talk radio host.
    His show is predictable. Then, like know, you know where Mike Pence stands on issues like gay rights, marriage, and abortion.
    Mike Pence is a great spokesperson for the power of podcasting. And I talk more about what you can learn from his talk radio experience on this episode.

    Your Podcasting Origin Story - How did you get starting in podcasting?

    A "Because Of My Podcast" Story - What has happened to you that wouldn't have happened had you not had a podcast?

    Marketing Via Podcasting - Are you marketing yourself or spreading an idea via podcasting?

    Diversity In Podcasting - Are you part of a group that is underrepresented in traditional media and using podcasting to connect to people within that group?

    The Podcast T-Shirt Business

    The Podcast T-Shirt Business

    I posted some merch photos on the Big Podcast Instagram account and got a comment from Kyle at Gagglepod Studios that this story would make a good podcast.
    So here it is.
    Branded merchandise isn't for everybody, but if you have the right audience, it can be a substantial part of your business.
    In this episode, I talk about how many "musicians" are known more for their t-shirts and other merch than they are for their music. I also talk about how you can easily as t-shirts and other merch to your business.
    Want an example? Big Podcast t-shirts
