One Surprising Thing Podcasters Can Learn From Alex Jones and InfoWars



Earlier this week, Apple made big news when the company, citing hate speech, removed 5 of the 6 podcasts hosted by Alex Jones of InfoWars.com. 

What you may not know is that, when podcasts are removed from the Apple Podcast Directory, they also automatically disappear from many other apps. That’s because most podcast apps are powered by the Apple Podcast Directory via an Apple-controlled API. This means that the app owners don’t have to make difficult decisions about content – but it also means that they don’t have the ability to individually control the way podcasts appear on their app, or whether they appear at all.

Apple does it essentially by proxy: because these apps largely do not have their own infrastructure to maintain a master list of shows, what you end up with is one entity controlling 95% of all master show listings across both iOS and Android.

But while Jones’ podcasts have disappeared from most podcast apps, the show can still be found. That’s because Alex Jones actually made one smart move: he controlled his RSS feed right from the start.

“It’s always the extreme cases that bring out the true power of RSS,” says Todd Cochrane, CEO of Blubrry/Rawvoice. “We advocate podcasts controlling their RSS feeds for many reasons, and this kind of event just highlights that necessity. InfoWars is an extreme show, but like it or not, it’s still on the air because they control their own RSS feed.” If their hosting provider had controlled their RSS feed like thousands of shows today they would be off the air.

Sure, most podcasters don’t have such controversial shows that we’d ever have to worry about an outright ban from Apple. But any time your show is completely controlled by another entity – such as a podcast host that owns or controls your feed or Apple Podcasts account – you’re ultimately at their mercy. A change to their platform technology, algorithms, or business model, and who knows what could happen to your show?

But by owning your feed and Apple Podcasts listing, at least you can ultimately control your own content and make a Plan B as the podcasting landscape continues to evolve.

Taking Your Show On The Road: Inspiration & Tips For The Nomadic Podcaster



Okay, maybe podcasting on the beach is more fantasy than reality. But if you’ve ever dreamed of living a nomadic lifestyle – or just think it would be fun to take your podcast on the road with you when you go on vacation – you might wonder how on-the-go podcasters make it work.

Luckily, with some planning, podcasting from the road is very possible, whether you’re embarking on a series of live interviews cross-country, or just want to record, publish, and edit from a hotel room. Here are some tips from mobile podcasters who’ve been there:

1) Create Smart Systems

“Publishing is so easy on the road as long as you have all the pieces with you,”says Jane Ellen, founder and host of the Glistening Particles podcast. Jane, who travels for a month each summer, finds that having specific systems for recording and publishing are key to helping her continue to get fresh content out weekly.

Recording is, obviously, the first step. Right after recording her podcast, while she’s still in front of the mic, Ellen does three things: first, she records a 10-15 minute audio for her social media person, so she will have the essence of the conversation and topic without having to listen to the entire episode. Second, she records her intro and outro. Then, she stores all the files in Dropbox so she can access them from anywhere. “The whole idea is to minimize the number of touches and have the pieces ready to go and accessible,” says Ellen. And while it’s certainly possible to record while on the road, the versatility of podcasting makes it easy to record as much as possible ahead of time to reduce the need to record in unfamiliar environments.

Publishing is typically easier to do on the road, but it still helps to have systems in place. Jane says she will often edit and mix final audio and writes her show notes while on the road – even while on a plane. As soon as she gets to decent wifi, she can publish the episode. “If I’m only doing editing & publishing all I need are headphones and my MacBook. If I think I’ll need to record some extra pieces or ads, I’ll bring my small Sure MV5 USB mic.”

When schedules are unpredictable and wifi isn’t guaranteed, the key to recording, publishing, and key is to create systems that take advantage of uninterrupted blocks of work time and access to high-quality wifi, when you have it. The more you get done when opportunity strikes and the easier you make it to access everything you need later, the less you’ll have to scramble to make things work in less-than-ideal circumstances.

2) Plan For Emergencies

“When traveling, assume stuff is going to break,” advises Brian Thomas, owner of Yōkai Audio in Kalamazoo, MI and sound engineer for podcasts including Make Light and Crunchy Cocktail Hour. “Bring extra cables, batteries, microphones, and devices if you can afford them. Have a backup plan for what you’re going to do when a critical piece of equipment goes down, starts on fire, or gets a pitcher of beer spilled on it.” When recording while on vacation or doing on-site interviews, that last warning may be more likely to come true than you think!

3) Take Time For Good Sound

Though you may not be able to take your full home studio on the road with you, that doesn’t mean you have to give up on sound quality. No matter where you’ll be recording, here are two simple steps you can take to improve sound quality.

Choose the right place to record. Thomas suggests checking the acoustics in an interior space by clapping your hands together slowly, but as loudly as you can, walking around the room. “Listen to the way the sound of your claps changes as you walk from place to place,” he suggests. “Chances are, your claps will echo or reverberate at least a little. Rooms with high ceilings and unadorned walls tend to have great big booming echoes, which will definitely come through on your recording. Find the space with the smallest amount of echo/shortest reverberation – that’s where you want to record.” This might be a place you least expect, like a walk-in closet, or even the front seat of your car.

Make sure you’re holding your mic to your best advantage.  If you’re using a cardioid microphone (like the Audio Technica ATR-2100 or Rode NT1-A, for example), there will be parts of the mic’s barrel that capture sound much more readily than others. You can use the mic’s “dead spot” to your advantage if you’re recording in a noisy restaurant or outdoor space. “Recording in a public space containing more audio than just the voices of yourself and your guest can help tell the story you’re trying to convey by providing a context, but you don’t want it to overpower your conversation,” Thomas points out. “Use the dead spot to keep those extra noises safely in the background of your interview.” Read more about getting the best possible sound from your mic. 

Above all, don’t let technology stop you. Chances are good that the same setup you use at home can be easily taken on the road with a little modification. For live two-person recordings, the Zoom H6 is a favorite. Other than that, you’ll need reliable wifi at least some of the time, just like you would at home.

And while it can take some getting used to, mobile podcasting can also lead to fresh inspiration and experiences you’d never have in a home studio. Jane Ellen shares her best on-the-road experience: “A person sitting next to me on the plane asked me what I was doing, and after I explained and showed them how to get to my show, I got to see them listen to an entire episode during the flight and give me immediate feedback! It was bliss.”

What Do Podcasters Need To Know About GDPR?



If you’re like most of us, over the last couple of weeks your inbox has likely been flooded with emails from companies you’re connected with, explaining their privacy policies in light of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which regulates the ways controllers and processors of personally-identifying information (like email addresses and names) can collect and use that information.

GDPR can be confusing, and podcasters aren’t always sure how this EU regulation might impact them. Here are answers to some common questions you may have about GDPR and how it affects you as a podcaster:

Which groups or organizations is GDPR really aimed at?

There are two terms defined by GDPR that are important; a controller of data and a processor of data,” says attorney Barry Kantz, General Counsel and CFO of RawVoice and Blubrry. “At Blubrry, we take the position that we are the controller of the data, because we make the decisions about how the data is used, whereas a processor of data is someone who the controller hires to process their data.” 

Is the typical podcaster either processing or controlling data? 

Technically speaking, a podcaster generates the process, whereby we collect the data,” explains Kantz. “An analogy is the customer who walks into a store and makes a purchase. The customer generates or starts the data collection process, and the store engages in. Many podcasters believe that Blubrry is a processor and the podcaster is the controller, but this interpretation would require every podcaster to have a complex legal contract with Blubrry.”

The reason for the million emails you’re suddenly getting? Transparency. “The GDPR requirement is that we implement their regulations and notify users.”

What safeguards can a podcaster put in place to be in compliance? 

As the controller of the data, Blubrry puts all the necessary safeguards into place when it comes to your podcast files. “With audience tools and measurement, Blubrry does not store any personally identifiable information,” explains Angelo Mandato, CIO of Blubrry. “For podcast measurement specifically, we use what is called pseudo-anonymization – a technique where the IP address is randomly changed in a way that it cannot identify the original address.”

But that doesn’t mean that podcasters are totally off the hook. “Being that most podcasters are also website owners, podcasters need to be cautious what information they gather from their web visitors,” explains Mandato. “For example, if you provide a survey for your audience, do not ask for information that may identify the listener, like their email address or name. Being smart about what you do on your website and you should be okay as far as GDPR is concerned.”

Does a podcaster need to make a public statement of some sort to their audience?

It depends. If you are collecting data for a newsletter, or capturing and retaining audience email and data, at that point you become the controller of that data and must comply with GDPR, says Mandato. Since Blubrry isn’t involved with the data collection that happens on your website or via your email list, we aren’t the controller of that information and aren’t responsible for how it is collected or how you communicate with your audience. 

So what’s the bottom line? 

“Podcasters need to realize that if they have listeners in the EU, they do have to make sure their podcast host is GDPR compliant,” says Todd Cochrane, CEO of Blubrry. And even if your show doesn’t currently have EU listeners, there’s nothing to stop it from growing into that market, so that means your podcast host should be GDPR compliant – no matter what.

Also, consider what information you are personally collecting from your audience, maybe without even knowing it. “If a podcaster is allowing comments on their website or has a mailing list, then the podcaster is responsible for making sure they are GDPR compliant,” says Cochrane.

Finally, make sure you are transparent about your data collection practices. There are tools out there to help you – for example, Akismet’s Anti-Spam plugin now adds GDPR disclaimers to the bottom of your comment collection system.

Bottom line: It’s not that hard to comply, so just do it already. “While I doubt the EU will ever go after a podcaster’s website,” says Cochrane, “It’s better to be safe than sorry.”

Thinking about starting a podcast with your spouse? Learn how this husband-wife podcasting team does it!



Spouses podcasting together? It’s a trend that just makes sense. After all, one of the biggest obstacles when starting a podcast is finding a host that complements you. So when one member of a couple provides the creative content-planning chops while the other geeks out over technology and sound quality, the result can be an enviable podcasting partnership.

One such dream team consists of Paul and Caroline Daley, part of the Blubrry community, a self-professed “black-belt in the nerd arts” and the “coolest nerd-wife in the world,”and hosts of The Daley Review, a podcast dedicated to reviews of TV shows, movies and books. Read on to find out more about Paul and Caroline and how they manage to keep up with a weekly podcast, all while raising three kids with special needs:

How they got started:

As parents to three special-needs kids, Paul and Caroline are well aware that the divorce rate in special-needs families is high: 90%, says Caroline. “We saw podcasting together as an outlet that would give us something fun to talk about, besides doctor’s appointments and milestones,” says Paul.

“It’s a new way to connect that’s just about us and our thoughts,” Caroline agrees.

The couple says they settled on covering TV reviews and discussion after they attended a TV Festival in Austin called ATX. “A TV show called The Leftovers held a panel there, which led us to both the show and podcasts about the show,” says Paul. “After listening to a couple podcasts, we decided we could do just as well as anything we’d heard so far. So, we started podcasting.”

While Paul has been a long-time podcast listener, Caroline wasn’t a newbie: she always had a penchant for podcasts about her favorite TV shows, like The Gilmore Guys. But while Paul actually owned the equipment needed to record episodes for a while, it wasn’t until the couple decided to move forward that he connected all the dots of how to create and publish a podcast.

How they do it:

At first glance, the workload appears to be split among fairly traditional gender lines, with Caroline doing handling content planning tasks like research and taking notes and Paul handling the post-production technical aspects like uploading, publishing and website maintenance. But, Paul notes, Caroline has taken on about 90% of the editing in the past year, because “she’s faster than me at it.” Lesson to other podcasting duos? Play to your strengths and interests, but keep an open mind: through the journey, you may find that you develop skills you didn’t know you could have.

What their friends and family think: 

Are people surprised to find out that Paul and Caroline have a podcast together? Yes! When people find out, “half of their responses revolve around our personal lives,” says Paul. “The people that know us at all ask how the parents of three special needs kids have the time to do it. We tell them we have to make the time. Marriages in special needs families have a much higher rate of divorce than other families, so we see this as a form of self-preservation. There’s not too many questions related to time management after we give that answer.”

“The other half says, ‘What’s a podcast?’,” quips Caroline. But she agrees with Paul about the importance of the connection podcasting provides. “Many great couples have memories of conversations they had where they stayed up all night laughing or can point to countless inside jokes that only they know,” she says. “One amazing side effect of podcasting together is we have recorded hundreds of those conversations where we are laughing and creating those “inside” jokes and we are able to revisit them any time we want ( I often do). My mom told me one of the saddest things is when someone is no longer with us, you miss their voice – but our voices and silly banter are documented forever.”

Two Great Women Podcasters of Color To Watch



In late March, Spotify announced its Sound Up Bootcamp, an innovative campaign aimed at introducing more women of color to podcasting. 10 women of color who aspired to be podcasters will attend a week-long intensive bootcamp, and at the end of the week, each participant will have the chance to pitch her podcast, with the winning podcast receiving a $10,000 award to develop her show.

Likely not even Spotify could have predicted the huge buzz the campaign would create, generating over 18,000 entries. One thing is certain, though – the immense success of this initiative proves that interest in podcasting among women of color is huge, and that networks, advertisers, and the entire podcasting industry need to be paying attention.

Today we’re honored to highligh two women of color podcasters from the Blubrry/PowerPress community:

Karen Walrond, Make Light

While Karen is a relatively new podcaster, she’s been a content creator for over 14 years as the voice behind chookooloonks.com. Karen is also a photographer, author, and speaker, and podcasting felt like a natural extension of the content she was creating for other mediums.

“As a professional speaker, I love and am comfortable talking on a mic – so podcasting seemed like a natural outlet to talk about the things I talk about on the road and with my coaching clients,” Karen explains.

Karen is excited to see that podcasting is becoming more diverse, and likens the evolution of podcasting to the growth and expansion of blogging ten+ years ago. “There is a lot of amazing content being created by women of color in all spaces – parenting, art, travel, there’s so much of it.” She admits, however, that connecting women of color content creators to a wider audience can still be a challenge. “Where I find there is a struggle is that despite the quality that’s being created by these writers, bloggers, podcasters, and photographers there is still a pervasive perception that those artists are creating work that is created solely for other people of color. But all stories are important and we need to learn about them.”

Make Light is dedicated to exploring how to live with intention and a sense of adventure, and is proof that beauty, positivity, creativity and kindness make the world go ’round. Season two will drop soon, so now is a great time to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode.

 

Pamela Alexander, BizLynks.TV

When Pamela and her husband Nash first started creating serialized video content aimed at helping the business community 6 years ago, at first they didn’t realize exactly what they were doing. “Finally it clicked, that really, this is video podcasting,” she explains. With over 10 shows total and 3 that are currently active, BizLynks.TV acts both as a network and a syndicator, distributing content via a variety of platforms including Apple Podcasts and Roku and helping businesses, nonprofits and associations to increase brand reach and engage clients while establishing their hosts as experts and thought leaders in their fields.

Pamela says she has seen an increased interest in podcasting among all demographics, including people of color. But, “we are still seeing the challenges in getting people to truly understand it. We approach so many people that we see and know they have great content, and are encouraging them to make that commitment to creating consistent, regular content and to understand that it’s a great way to set yourself apart as an expert in your industry.” BizLynks.TV helps close the knowledge gap by offering a platform to content creators that gives their content more reach via streamlined distribution.

With a catalog of active podcasts including the network’s flagship show, That’s My Biz, BizLynks.TV is a resource both for those who want to consume great video content, and those who create it.

How To Take Advantage of Google’s Plan To “Double” Podcast Listening



Google made news last week when the announced a strategy to put podcasts front and center in its content offerings. In fact, according to Google Podcasts Product Manager Zack Reneau-Wedeen, the company has a bold and ambitious goal to double the amount of podcast listening worldwide over just the next couple of years. 

For years Google has prioritized text, images, and video in search results. With Google’s new podcast strategy, podcasts will join this elite class of content and enjoy enhanced ranking on Google search. 

That’s good news for podcasters, but great news for PowerPress, PowerPress Sites and PodcastMirror users, because Blubrry services meet all of Google’s requirements for promotion and distribution. 

Your Feed Matters.

By “owning your podcast feed” – which you do, when PowerPress / PowerPress Sites originates your feed from your website or PodcastMirror which mirrors the metadata in your original feed – your podcast is positioned to take care of this Google search advantage. On the other hand, if your podcast host owns your podcast feed and the links to the episodes and home page link back to your host, it’s your host that will get the benefit of your show’s new search ranking. Those using Blubrry service offerings are in the best possible position as they do not need to make any changes to how they are publishing their shows.

In addition to search discovery, Google’s podcast strategy also will include a plan to recommend podcast content – for example, if someone searches “new diets”, Google might suggest your paleo-eating podcast. This recommendation could happen at the program level, or Google might recommend a specific episode. So, having a centralized podcast website with good show notes and descriptive titles, podcasts can compete with big shows even if they aren’t part of a large network or podcast hosting company. Since podcasts will be recommended based on content, as long as your content is of high value to the listener, your show can be recommended.

Again, the best practice here is that your podcast has a dedicated website, that your podcast feed metadata links to your website, and that you employ good practices of writing descriptive titles and descriptions for each episode you produce. With all those things in place, your podcast will be positioned to take full advantage of audio SEO, and you’ll be able to target Google search results, recommendations within Google, and will even be able to be utilized by smart speakers like Google Home.

Blubrry has been ahead of the curve on this for a number of years in helping podcasters through the Podcast SEO settings in PowerPress to optimize whats in the feed versus what is on the public website. With the metadata always linking back to your brand. Blubrry Podcasting uses the absolute best practices in the space and the beauty is the strategy we have promoted for years aligns perfectly with Google’s strategy.

A big part of the new strategy from Google is curating content for listeners based on their needs and listening habits – i.e. cueing up your travel show based on a listener’s Google Maps use, or news when the listener is on his or her commute. Google may also remember the show that was last played to allow a listener to continue where they left off when they switch from listening in their car commute to listening on their laptop at work or on your Google Home device – so planning for your episode to be consumed across multiple devices is a must. It’s exciting stuff for podcasters, but making sure your podcast is optimized to align with Google’s new strategy is the first step, and key to taking advantage of the growth. 

To take full advantage of Google’s new podcast growth strategy, your podcast website and feed must meet these requirements: 

  1. Expose a valid RSS feed of your podcast.
  2. Feed must contain at least one episode
  3. Feed must have a dedicated <link> to your podcast’s homepage.
  4. The “home page”, RSS feed and audio must be index-able by googlebot. (URLs must not be protected by robots.txt or <noindex> tags)
  5. The “home page” must include the RSS feed meta tag

PowerPress has had supported these requirements through the Podcasting SEO settings in PowerPress. PowerPress 7.4+ will have all of these requirements enabled by default. If you have a previous version of PowerPress, just check the Podcasting SEO settings and enable the Podcast Directory SEO Guidance setting, and you’ll be all set to take full advantage of Google’s efforts to rapidly increase your podcast audience.
