A Podcast is simply a Radio show produced for the Internet. Podcasters will also create video
with their shows. Podcast is a touchy word – some feel it doesn’t really encompass the job, others believe it was turned a bad word by
Apple
. There are many great podcasts out there.

Cachefly: A Little About Geekazine’s CDN for Video, Podcasts

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIt doesn’t matter if you are a podcaster, video content creator, app developer or gamer – you need a solid CDN to deliver images, audio and video across your program. The content needs to deliver fast and reliably so your customers don’t move to another website, show or game. When I lost my CDN in August, I did a lot of shopping for a new location. I had over 900 videos that needed a new home and a lot of work changing file names just to get back on track. I have looked at Cachefly in the past and was pretty impressed with their track record. So I moved over to the service. Why Do Podcasters, Video Creators Need a CDN like Cachefly? Sure, you can put all your videos up on YouTube and that can be pretty sufficient. However, some...

Gibson’s Neat Microphones: King Bee – Stylish and Powerful

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI sat down and talked with Skipper Wise at International CES 2015 while at the Gibson booth. Skipper was part of Blue Microphones until they sold it in 2013. He took some time off, but Gibson wanted him to bring out a line of microphones for their brand. So he came out of retirement to create something pretty sweet. Its called Neat Microphones, and their concept is around the “Bee” line. From Beestro to Beehive, Bumblebee to King Bee. I got to see the Worker and King Bee mics in action when Ryan Whyte Maloney recorded in their Gibson studio. Even the microphones get their own XLR Beeline cables and the shockmounts are open-faced to allow the microphone’s look to pass through. A line for studio recording, a line for home recording and podcasting. Best part – the USB desktop microphones...

Digital Jukebox Button Broadcaster for Organizing Audio – NAB 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSRadio programs use cart software to keep audio files organized. A software solution allows for more than just what a cart can hold and everything at a person’s fingertips. Even with podcasting some people use cart software to organize and keep clips at hand. Digital Jukebox is cart software that does a lot more. I got to talk with Joe over how Button Broadcaster works. Basically, the software allows you to put audio files in a 49 square area. You can organize those from intro music to quick quotes, sound effects, and more. On top is another series of buttons which bring up another set of buttons to use. On the left is the list. Items that you have queued up to play. They can be single items or category list items. Therefore you can play 3 songs and come in to...

Vocalbooth – Portable Soundproof Rooms – NAB 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThere are many times I wish I had one of these. Not just for podcasting but for playing my drums or rocking out on my guitar. I stopped by Vocalbooth to learn more about sound booth technology. Its more than just putting up some eggshell foam into a room. I talked with Guy from Vocalbooth to learn more about these rooms you can put inside a room. The booth is made by the company where they put attention to detail. For instance: the door is probably the heaviest piece in the system but it also is the place where sound can escape or come in. During the interview I step out and in to show the difference. If the door was shut – you would definitely notice the sound difference. Vocalbooth makes rooms for everyone – including correctional facilities. They become...

Interview with Downtown Podcast – Bringing in the Community

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSSome podcasters have a microphone and computer in a closet to create their shows. Others use a webcam and Google Hangouts. But what if you had a live audience you can play to – and also bring that audience into the show? That is what Downtown Podcast does. I had a great opportunity to speak with a group of podcasters that are not only putting on a great show, they are doing it with the downtown Las Vegas community behind them. The Downtown Podcast is a show recorded live every Thursday night at the Ogden in downtown Las Vegas. The podcast is about the new startup scene being created in the old part of town.

5 Years of Geekazine.com – The Good, Bad and the Future

Do you remember what you were doing 5 years ago today? I do. I started this website. -Jeffrey Powers, Geekazine.com It was this day in 2007 where I hit the button and started Geekazine.com. The podcast was already running (as I started it a month prior). I launched the website and did the podcast for the day. I felt it was a great launch and an exciting time for me and Geekazine. Then I got laid off from my job. It was literally the day before launch that I was called into a room and told my services were no longer welcome. I was also sick during the launch and the audio was not going my way. I took the negative focus and put it in positive articles on Geekazine.
