017 The Podcast Report – From Podcasting To Publishing

Author:

Hey everyone, Cliff Ravenscraft here. I’m back with another episode of The Podcast Report with my co-host, Megan Enloe.

In this episode, we talk with Scott Sigler. Scott is one of the early pioneers in the world of podcasting. In 2005, as an aspiring author, he saw an opportunity with podcasting to share the stories that he wrote and to build an online following around those stories.

Determined to prove himself to publishing companies, he put every word of his novel into podcast form, giving it away for free, before ever printing a single copy. In this episode, we talk with Scott about how he first discovered podcasting, how that led to the ability to become an author as his full-time career, and what he will be speaking about at NMX in just over four weeks from today.

We encourage you to check out ScottSigler.com and make plans to come to NMX and attend Scott’s session titled “The Art of Podcast Storytelling.”

016 The Podcast Report – A Lovefest And A Talk With Renee Chambliss

Author:

Hey everyone, Cliff Ravenscraft here. I’m back with another episode of The Podcast Report with my co-host, Megan Enloe.

First, I want to admit that I am completely to blame for the total lovefest that opened this show. It’s just that I am so thrilled with how much the NMX team has invested into the podcasting community. There is no doubt that NMX 2013 is going to be an event that every single podcaster should attend.

I’m happy to have Rick Calvert back on the show and to give us some insight into why they made the decision to go back to a single event each year and we ask him if the future events will continue to be held in January.

In this episode, we also talk with Renee Chambliss. Renee is an author who started out by podcasting her works of fiction as an audio podcast. One thing led to another and, today, Renee is a much sought after voice over talent.

Renee will be leading a session for our Podcasting Track titled “Tone and Emotion: The Keys to Compelling Podcast Fiction Narration” I’m thrilled to have another member of the fiction podcast community coming to the show and sharing her experience. Have you ever thought of getting into voice over work? If so, this may be one of those sessions that you don’t want to miss.

The Podcast Podcast Pavilion

One of the major highlights of the NMX event in January will be the Podcast Pavilion.
