002 The Podcast Report – Benefits of Attending BWENY – Fan Podcasting – Podcast Interviews – And Making Money


Hey everyone, Cliff Ravenscraft here. I’m back with another episode of The Podcast Report.

The Schedule Is Online
I want to encourage you to have a look at the schedule for the podcasting track. Find the sessions that you want to attend and put them on your calendar. Please note that the dates, times, title, and descriptions are accurate. However, while we have filled all speaker spots with confirmed speakers, not all speakers are listed at this time. We add them to the session as they complete the required speaker agreement form.

How Would Attending BWENY Benefit Someone Who Has Been Podcasting For 5 Years?
This week, I answer a question from Ken who said that he’s never been to a conference like BlogWorld & New Media Expo before. He wanted to know how attending the show would benefit him as someone who has been podcasting for the past five years. Also, he wanted to know if he only had two days to choose from, which two days would be most beneficial to him. I answer these questions in the episode.

Session Highlights
Darrell Darnell from The Fringe Podcast and Golden Spiral Media joins me to talk about the session he’s putting together titled Tips and Techniques for Building a Successful Fan Podcast.

Rob Walch from Wizzard Media joins me to tell about the two sessions that he’s putting together for the BWENY podcasting Track.

Be sure to attend Rob’s sessions:
The 411 on Recording and Producing a Great Interview
The Multiple Ways To Make Money With Your Podcast

Update From Info Provided In Episode 001
Tim Bourquin, co-founder of the original Podcast Expo, posted a comment on show notes for the first episode of The Podcast Report. I shared this comment in the podcast and wanted to post it here as well.

Good show Cliff! Just to clarify one point Rick said, the blog post I wrote after the last Podcast Expo wasn’t about being discontent with the podccasting community – it was my frustration with the tradeshow business itself.

Rick’s comment makes it sound like I was discontented with podcasters. So I wanted to correct that.

Here’s the blog post I wrote. It is all about the business itself back in 2008- not podcasting.

(Emile and I still have a membership podcast and keep in touch with many other podcasters. I never did quit the tradeshow business. I still consult on several shows I started and sold and I’m always thinking about new show ideas…)

I hope that you enjoy this podcast, that you will subscribe to it, and that you will tell every podcaster you know about it. Please leave me any comments or feedback that you have in the comments section below! I hope to see you at the event!

    I was at the first Podcast Expo back in 2005. It’s still a landmark event for me, even though the podcast I was producing at the time is no more (the tartanpodcast).
    However, 7 years later, I’m still making podcasts, one for fun, one for profit.
    Would it benefit me to travel over to Las Vegas? I wonder…. It sure would be nice!
