Do you podcast alone or with others? Having a co-host can be extremely helpful when it comes to creating compelling, dynamic content that is interesting to listen to.

Lewis +David Jackson +Jerod Morris +Tawny Fineran and +Pilar Orti to discuss the ins and outs, ups and downs of having a podcast with co-hosts.

  Podfading, normalization, Byte Range Requests... if you've been podcasting long enough it's likely you are familiar with one or more of these terms. Podcasting has it's own language and depending on your experience level you are more or less schooled in all its jargon. Jargon is defined as, "special words or expressions that are used by a particular profession or group and are difficult for others to understand." There is plenty about podcasting that is "difficult to understand" and this show aims to help you become more fluent in the language of a craft we all love and love to share...podcasting. Listen as +Ray Ortega, +Richard Farrar +Lloyd Hannesson, +Krystal O'Conner and +Nick Seuberling have a fun discussion about some of these terms, their meaning and the issues that they bring up for podcast producers.
