Mark Ramsey

 

More and more surveys are coming out showing how Radio stations are slowly losing their audience. The latest reports out of Edison Research shows that podcast consumption rose 18% over the Spring. Tom Webster will be presenting a session covering these stats in depth.  When I talk to former DJs – now podcasters, I’m amazed at the shackles that these talented people have had to wear while trying to be entertaining. They have to hit traffic and weather on the tens, and don’t forget that it is “Wild and Whacky Wednesday.” One DJ explained how they had 20 seconds to get in, make a point, be entertaining, and get back to the music/advertising. With this in mind, think about how freeing it must be to come from a radio background into podcast. It must feel like a million pounds being taken off your back.

Mark Ramsey is THE guy when it comes to talking about Radio and how it is (or is not) keeping it’s share of listeners, it’s future and more. Now you might be thinking, “Radio?, this is a podcasting event.” Realize everyone behind the microphone is a content creator. Because of Mark’s extensive history he is well aware of the differences between Radio and Podcasting.

At NMX, Mark will be presenting a session titled, “7 Radio Lessons that Can Transform your Podcast.” As Mark as his ear to the ground and paying attention to all media types if you’re attending this session you better have a new pad and a sharp pencil. When I spoke with Mark on the phone, I think we could’ve given him about 4 sessions at NMX as he is just a fountain of knowledge, insight, and experience. You want to circle his 7 Radio lessons that can transform your podcast session.

Mark has consulted with and delivered projects for numerous media, publishing, and digital brands over his career, including Apple, iHeartMedia (Clear Channel), Pandora, CBS, Bonneville, Sirius XM, U-T San Diego, EA Sports, and more. Mark has a full understanding of the audio consuming audience and will be sharing it at the event. Check out Mark’s podcast Media Unplugged with insights into the media.

 

Dennis Miller and Adam Carolla Launch New Podcast

Adam Carolla Dennis Miller

A new podcast with two comedic legends launched this week: PO’d Cast with Dennis Miller and Adam Carolla.

In the episode entitled “Welcome,” Dennis explains how he got his start in comedy, while Adam discusses being a dad to twins.

As a podcaster, what really appealed to me was hearing Dennis and Adam talk about the format of podcasting. Dennis revealed, “I talked to Larry Miller and asked him what it’s like and he said, You have to go in and know that you can’t map it all out and just start having a conversation. Then it clicks in that you don’t have to have everything all mapped out, and you’ll find it amazingly cathartic. This feels like what I use to pay a shrink $300 an hour for – except we’re getting paid.”

Adam said, ‘This medium is beautiful for people who want to communicate, people who want to share ideas, and people who want to talk. You won’t find this anywhere else. It’s not late night television; it’s not AM radio, it’s just NOT. It’s not that there is anything wrong with that. Their metronome is set at a much different pace, and it has to because of their format.

Look for both Adam Carolla and Dennis Miller at NMX. Adam is participating in a keynote with Podcast One’s Norm Pattiz, while Dennis is co-hosting the 10th Annual Podcast Awards with Emily Morse.

As podcasting gets hotter and hotter, you want to jump in as soon as you can, and get going in the right direction. We have assembled the best presenters with the best subjects to help you launch your own podcast.

Protect Your Favorite Podcast from the Patent Trolls

Author:

There are often very good reasons people and companies must defend their patents. The Patent system protects inventors. When a patent is infringed on, the holder must take action or risk losing their patent. That is how it works when the system is being used properly. Patent Trolls are not using the system as it was designed.

Patent trolls are not in the business of defending their patents. They are in the business of extortion. They purchase broad general patents and then make claims about infringement. They send out letters claiming a patent infringement and asking for “licensing” fees. It is nearly always cheaper to pay the fee than to fight it in court. Often these patent infringement claims would not likely hold up in court but few businesses are able to fund the 1.5 + million it would take to survive a legal battle.  Even Apple gave in and settled

For us non legal folks, that’s known as a shake down.

  CAROLLA_728x90

In 2013 one of these trolls sent letters to several leading podcasters such as HowStuffWorks podcast (Discovery Channel), Marc Maron, Chris Hardwick, Adam Carolla  and more. They claim that a patent for their failed “Magazines on tape” Continue Reading

During his keynote with Leo Laporte, and Stitcher CEO Noah Shanok, the PodcastOne founder threw out several tweetable comments that NMX attendees jumped on. A few examples include this tweet from Jane Boyd:

Radio should be afraid of staying the course. #nmx opening comment from morning keynote on the future of podcasting.

This from Holland Cooke:

@PodcastOne founder Norm Pattiz at #NMX:If I were Howard Stern, I would go to a subscription #podcasting model. Emulate #GlennBeck model.

And they really loved his shoes:

The overall theme of Mr. Pattiz’s take on the future of podcasting was summerized in this comment tweeted by Justin Wise:
