Opinion

Rambling introductions, self-indulgent commentary or just plain superflous chit-chat can cross the line rapidly from warm and conversational to banal and repelling.

Even if you have a truly compelling content and you’ve worked with the best podcast editor to ensure your audio is exceptional, your efforts will prove futile if listeners don’t even know your podcast exists to begin with.

Along with clueless bloggers and oblivious authors, podcasters fail to see the irony (and near-uselessness) of promoting their creations to others also making similar creations. It’s like trying to sell a painting inside of an art supply store.

Podcasters always seem to forget header images. Header images are high-resolution, landscape-oriented images that you or other sites can use on a website.

(Tip: header images? You've almost guaranteed a lead story in Podnews.)

Podcast

Everything's going to be all right, a podcast with former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Katie Pavlich, launches today. The press release reads that it's exclusive content on Entercom's radio·com platform; the pilot episodes earlier this year were also published on Apple Podcasts.
