    Podcasting Equipment and Software for the Beginner Podcaster

    Podcasting Equipment and Software for the Beginner Podcaster

    You’re listening to Danny, on WHAT : DE HEK podcast. This is the place where I share my experience, knowledge and skills.

    [00:00:25] Hello, I'm Danny de Hek. And this is WHAT : DE HEK podcast. I'm facilitating my own meeting today and this is what I call one of my personal rant podcasts. Now, I don't know if you subscribe to my channel, but you may have noticed I haven't actually done any podcasts in for quite some time. I discovered an app called clubhouse and I learned so much about podcasting.

    [00:00:25] I had to upgrade my gear and go through a whole learning process once again. And I want to share the journey of becoming a podcaster with you. So if you were like me, you probably have a laptop and you're probably thinking I could become a podcaster. I can just get a microphone and start recording. Wow.

    [00:00:45] Have I got news for you? Now my journey started by listening to other podcasts and finding the right gear. So today what I'd like to do is just run through some of the gear that I've had, um, that I recommend that I have found good for me. First thing you would probably need, if you were getting into podcasting is maybe a microphone.

    [00:01:11] Now what I'm going to do, I'm just going to flip into a web browser and I'm going to show you the microphones that I use. This is what you call an auto auto microphone, which is a BP40. Now I stumbled across these microphones because originally when I was getting into podcasts, I was trying to record a group of 15 people in a room.

    [00:01:36] And I got a blue Yeti mic. If you ever have one of those and this you're a musician, well, you've got yourself set up in a perfectly sound balanced room. Do not use a blue Yeti mic, just my opinion. Fall on your feet and get yourself a dynamic microphone, diabetes. I actually got two of these microphones and I'll just get my head out of it.

    [00:01:55] Uh, and I had them in a room that was shaped like a horseshoe and I put two, these one each end of the room and it did capture the sound pretty good. However, it probably, um, wasn't even the right title of area was space to be able to record a podcast COVID Cape. And I cut it all my gear back home. And at the time I was using an app.

    [00:02:21] Six by zoom, which is a recording device, and that was adequate for myself. But when I started wanting to record other people who were online, like, um, recording things over zoom or river, Riverside.fm, or, um, Zencastr, or, uh, stream labs or stream yard at the camera, a whole different complicated stuff.

    [00:02:46] Sorry. First of all, what I did is I went out and got myself a RØDECaster Pro, and I'm just going to get the ball. Ooh, the box. Okay. Yeah, I wrote RØDECasters are absolutely awesome. Now the theory, first, one of these I've got, we'll just put it back on the floor. I got up home from the shop and I put it on the counter and it was buckled and every time I pushed the button.

    Johnny Bigg Reviews - Expensive and Bad Quality Products

    Johnny Bigg Reviews - Expensive and Bad Quality Products

    Hello, have you ever gone into a shop and thought I just got ripped off and you can't do anything about it? That happened to me. I went to Johnny Bigg, which has a shop in my local shopping mall at Northland Shopping Center. And I bought myself a belt. I don't know about you guys, but I've had belts that last few years, and I think I was replacing about that last for about 10 years or more.
    Anyway, I bought a belt was at $99.95 belt. I had it for, I must've bought it. I paid cash for it and I must have bought it in February 2021. Now I went back into the shop and I said, look, I don't think I paid with Credit Card so I haven't got a receipt. However, is this your belt, They looked at as a, yes, this is one of our belts.
    There's no doubt about that. And I said, well, I can't, I haven't kept the receipt and I was running. If you going to do anything about it, they said, leave it with me and I'll get. A manager to a ring, you know that. Okay. So I went out of the shop H went back half an hour later. Cause I said, I do remember, I think I paid cash just to let you know, anyway, went along three or four days, nothing happened.
    So I rang up the shop and I said, hi, I'm Danny, the guy with the belt. Do you remember me? And they said, yes, we've got your belt right here. And it's, you know, we'll get the manager to ring you. So we did another two or three days and nothing happened. So I finished up going back into the shelf and they said, well, we tried to ring you.
    But your phone number wouldn't work. So I said, if you've got the piece of paper that my phone number was on, they showed me it. And I said, well, that is my number. I don't know why it didn't work. Anyway. They said, look, can we count, find you in our system? Uh, and you, haven't got a receipt. We're willing to give you a discount on a new belt, but we're not going to replace the belt.
    And I mean, okay. I said, I understand about having the receipt and that's my bad. I should keep all my receipts in social use. So you can go back to the shop. Because they don't have to, um, issue you a refund because of that. However, I said, but you're still selling these belts and they don't look like they are very good.

    WHAT : DE HEK Podcast - 12 Questions with ‘Ex-Jehovah’s Witness’ Darick Mitchell (Heathen Humanist)

    Danny de Hek: [00:00:00] You’re listening to Danny, on WHAT : DE HEK podcast. This is the place where I share my experience, knowledge and skills.
    Darick Mitchell: [00:00:11] guest
    Danny de Hek: [00:00:12] all the way from America, which I haven’t actually asked you. What part of America you’re from. You have to tell us Darick
    Darick Mitchell: [00:00:18] Well Utar right now, but you time Nevada in Oklahoma
    Danny de Hek: [00:00:23] Isn’t that where all the, the Mormons live.
    Darick Mitchell: [00:00:26] Yup. Deal with them all day. Every day.
    Danny de Hek: [00:00:30] Yeah.
    I’m just curious where the Mormons live. Do they have bikes and they bike around all the time? Cause that’s the only time I see a Mormon and in New Zealand where I am they literally always want bikes.
    Darick Mitchell: [00:00:40] Yep. They’re on bikes. They’re on a Ford focus.
    Danny de Hek: [00:00:43] Wow. How about that? I’ve got you along and we’ve got a format which if you’re not familiar. What we do to our listeners we have 12 questions with what to hick and I’ve just got a card, a pack of about a hundred different questions. And I grabbed, I shuffled them in a grave at 12, and then I ask our geeses retina and Christian.
    So, you know, I don’t know what the question is going to be next. And let’s see what the first one, if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
    Darick Mitchell: [00:01:07] Anywhere in the world. Probably Ireland I would go back in. Yeah. Yup. That’s a tough one because I love mountains and I love oceans. I live in Utah, hiked all over. I do love oceans and forests, but my heritage has a lot of Celtic. Great, great grandparents were Scottish and Irish.
    Danny de Hek: [00:01:32] I was killed.

    SEO Optimization Techniques to Increase Organic Search Engine Traffic

    SEO Optimization Techniques to Increase Organic Search Engine Traffic

    How you doing Danny de Hek my name. I'm in the process of doing a whole lot of new workshops. And I was going through my PDF files and I found one on SEO tips and advice, and I thought it was too good to not go over the content that I discussed. So I own a business networking company. And the idea behind it, as I used to do 15 minutes, sort of a little week workshops, teaching people, some of the stuff I've learned over the years.
    So I've been doing website development and also eco stuff for about, I dunno, maybe too long, over 20 years, at least. And this was one of my favorites. So before I revitalize it and make it more modern, I thought it would be worthwhile while documenting this as a YouTube video. And it may give you a bit of understanding how it works.
    So let's get into it. I'll just flip into a work browser. And this was my PowerPoint presentation and that's called a SEO tips and advice by Danny de Hek who is me so often when I'm talking to people. Typical, isn't it. As we talk about SEO search engine optimization, and there's so many facets to it, I actually liken it to imagine that you have one glass.
    Full of water. So for example, you could actually have a really good URL that identifies your brand or your business, and that would be equivalent to having one glass of water fall. You may also have some really good titles with the content that you put on the internet. You may also have ALT tags and all your images.
    You may also have file names named correctly. And along with that, you may even have a well structured website that are search engine friendly, but by just having one good glass full of water, isn't really going to cut the mustard. Do you need to have a well balanced website? And that's why I put together this PowerPoint presentation.

    Mike Armstrong - Screw The Big Rooms Clubhouse Club by Welsh Dragon

    Mike Armstrong - Screw The Big Rooms Clubhouse Club by Welsh Dragon

    You’re listening to Danny, on WHAT : DE HEK podcast. This is the place where I share my experience, knowledge and skills.
    DANNY : DE HEK: [00:00:00] Welcome along with Mike Armstrong all the way from England. And I think you're a 13 hours behind us. Am I correct? Or is it 11 hours?
    Mike Armstrong: [00:00:22] 11 o'clock at night tonight. This time. What time are
    DANNY : DE HEK: [00:00:24] you on? Let's see this terminology. We a quarter pass 16 minutes past 11:00 AM on a Tuesday. And I presume you're on a Monday evening. Yeah. Well, when I was doing daylight saving things that seems to screw us all around. Alrighty. So welcome. Thank you for coming along. We've known each other for roundabout 10 weeks now to via Clubhouse and why at the very start we see we're going to do a podcast exchange.
    And so this is what we're doing today. My format of my podcast, for those for you, who's listening is I've got 12 unprompted questions to ask Mike. And in along the way, we'll find out who he is and what he's patient and about. So the first question that is totally random, even, I don't know what it's going to be.
    What is the distinct, oops, what is the distinction between feeling good in business and not feeling good? What makes you feel good in business, Mike?
    Mike Armstrong: [00:01:16] For me, it's been able to help and impact as many people as possible. That makes me feel good. And if I'm not helping and impacting people, especially large numbers of people that I don't feel so good.
    So I love to help people. And you know, the more the
    DANNY : DE HEK: [00:01:31] merrier.
    A few years ago, I added a connector into my boudoir things. I do. I think you'd label yourself as a connector. I don't know anyone actually, who connects people more than you do listening to you on clubhouse? True. Say
    Mike Armstrong: [00:01:46] I wouldn't say I'm a super connector. So I've learned, I like to connect with other super connectors around the world so that we can form a super connection. So network really. And you know, I think that then allows you to impact more.
