  1. FYI for all my bloggers who use WordPress – I personally use & highly recommend using StudioPress to make life so much easier. It's an add-on to WordPress that handles site security, advanced SEO, and optimized performance, basically streamlines all the back-end tech stuff so you don't have to deal with it! More info here:

  2. Hey Eileen(Sorry If I Misspelled Your Name).Just Wanted To Say,I Enjoy Your Channel,Always Great Advice & Great Personality!,Also Subscribed To All Your Channels & Share Them With Family,Friends & Anyone Looking For Info or Advice On Podcasts,Have You Ever Used Or Reviewed The MXL MICROPHONE SERIES?(I'm Currently Using The MXL 770 & For A Guest Mic A Mxl V67G(Great Condenser Mics), & ALSO A HARBINGER (Guitar Center Mixer Exclusive).{Just Wanted To Share That & Get Your Thoughts!THANKS!!Pstr. Rik }

  3. Don't use a condenser mic if you want all that echo.. My background in as audio engineer and condenser mics provide better overall sound quality but a cardroid mic is best for those who can't control their recording environment.. My first record booth was in a closet with acoustic treatment so if you're serious and have the money get some.. Head over to gearsluts forum or futureproducers forum my name is fataltone on both

  4. So many youtubers and other content makers are calling their pay-per-view broadcast “Podcast” this needs to stop or at least be explained properly. These shows are not podcast by any means. Podcast is a word from the words Ipod +broadcast… they are not exclusives they can’t be anything other than free according to their definition on apples website and if it’s not listed in iTunes it’s not even a Podcast as that uses the apple inc copyright of IPod and they have a legal copyright and policy about the word podcast and it’s use in other media or products.

    Any search of the term "Podcast" shows that podcast by their conceptual nature and their creation are totally and 100% free. Attempting to monetize or change the media format of an audio or video "Podcast" to be "exclusive" or "Premium" means the term "Podcast" is being used in a misleading manner. The terms "Premium broadcast" or "internet radio"or other terms indicating the nature of the media content and the license for its use, need to be used in place of the term "Podcast". Any media content labeled "Podcast" are implied as free to the consumer by the very term "Podcast" and its endorsement by Apple Inc. This service is to be at no cost to the consumer and must remain at not cost, so long as the term "Podcast" is used to describe the media content therein (audio or video content) and a copyright on the brand name "iPod" is in place by Apple Inc.

    "Podcast" are an extension of Apple Inc. they are defined by incorporating a brand copyright in its term and thus that brand, its platform and its understanding within the consumer/advertising market with the common term and definition of broadcast. Giving tools to monetize this content as exclusives or "Premium subscriber only content" changes how the term is used and thus makes it inappropriate and essentially false advertising for any consumer or potential advertising client. This also gives legal precedents for copyright infringement and potential harm to the brands of Apple Inc. as a whole. This misuse of the term stands to negatively impact the term "Podcast" and the brand name "iPod" in the consumer mind and thus Impact the platforms it originates from and takes its "iPod" copyrighted term from. These platforms being iTunes and the IOS/MacOS ecosystem". Thus the inappropriate use of the term “Podcast” violates the agreements and regulations set fourth by Apple Inc. for the use of their brand name in advertisements. By implementing the term "Podcast" and monetizing a known free product that Apple Inc. states and thusly endorses as free. The product is associated with Apple Inc. by using the term “Podcast” to mislead consumers and advertisers a company/artist is fundamentally acting against the term and the consumer/copyright holders best interest.

    Please point this out and help take steps to address this and see below for direct examples from Apples copyright policy, their FAQ on Podcast and wired magazine saying the same thing.

    "Podcast" is a derivative of Apple's iTunes platform and a combination of the copyrighted brand name "iPod" and the term "broadcast". Please refer to Apple's guidelines on the use of their brand names within advertising

    These guidelines presented below are in reference to the use of the copyrighted brand “iPod” in context to its use in other media or promotional materials. They are as follows:

    "Depictions of Apple Products
    1. Endorsement or Sponsorship: Apple does not support the use of its logos, company names, product names, or images of Apple products by other parties in marketing, promotional or advertising materials as their use may create the perception that Apple endorses or sponsors the product, service or promotion.
    2. Compatibility: If you are a developer, you may show an image of an Apple product in your promotional/advertising materials to depict that your product is compatible with, or otherwise works with, the Apple product or technology, provided you comply with the following requirements:
    a. Your product is in fact compatible with, or otherwise works with, the referenced Apple product.
    b. The image is an actual photograph of the genuine Apple product and not an artist’s rendering (Note: You must obtain express written permission from Apple before using any photograph owned or licensed by Apple).
    c. The Apple product is shown only in the best light, in a manner or context that reflects favorably on the Apple products and on Apple Inc.
    d. The reference to Apple does not create a sense of endorsement or sponsorship by, or other false association with, Apple or Apple products.
    For further information with respect to Apple’s copyrights, please submit your request in writing to the Copyright Team.

    Also see the term definition according to Apple and their FAQ from apples own page. (

    “What is a podcast?
    Podcasts are episodes of a program available on the Internet. Podcasts are usually original audio or video recordings, but can also be recorded broadcasts of a television or radio program, a lecture, a performance, or other event.
    Podcasts usually offer each episode in the same file format, such as audio or video, so that subscribers can enjoy the program the same way each time. Some podcasts, such as language courses, include multiple file formats, such as video and documents, to teach more effectively.
    For podcast listeners, podcasts are a way to enjoy great content from around the world for free. For podcast publishers, podcasts are a great way to reach a wide audience.
    Apple does not directly provide podcast updates or episodes. When you subscribe to a podcast using the Podcasts app for iOS, or using iTunes on your Mac or PC, you are subscribing to the podcast updates by that particular podcast producer. With iCloud, you can synchronize your podcast subscriptions across all devices.”

    Definition of podcast from WIRED
    From wired ( General public consensus on the term "Podcast".

    "PODCASTS MAY BE the new radio, but listening to these downloadable shows requires more effort than just twisting a dial. The rewards, however, are much richer: the latest in politics and culture, interviews with your favorite celebrities, serial dramas, and comedy aplenty. All of this programming is available for free; just install an app on your phone and download the shows you want to hear. So rich is the abundance of great podcasts and apps, diving in can be overwhelming. So we've done the dirty work—here's a guide to help get you started."

    Please remove the term "Podcast" in use with any relation to the terms "premium", "exclusive" or "Patron" as none of these have any relation to the term "Podcast" or Apple Inc. and are not endorsed activities by Apple inc.

    Thanks and spread the word. #savepodcast

  5. Absolutely helpful! My only question is, do you have a Business profile on WordPress? Which allows for plug ins and more, or do you only have the premium plan?

    Is anyone else having trouble trying to submit your podcast to iTunes? That’s the only part I continue to get stuck at? Please help!

  6. Thank you for the very helpful info! I want to start a podcast reading children stories in Spanish and then slowly adding various content on childhood development 🙂 I wasn’t aware you had a podcast so you have a new subscriber. Can’t wait to listen to your inspiring content ❤️

  7. Hi! If I plan on recording in public places, like a coffee shop, what mics would you suggest? Also, thank you for this very informative and helpful video 🙂 Its great!!
