Podcasts Within Educational Institutions

After a long hiatus, the PowerPress Podcast is back. For the most part school is out for the summer, but we’re here to talk about a podcast that works at Penn State University. Before they get to that, MacKenzie and this episodes co-host discuss subscribers. There is quite a bit of misunderstanding of how subscribers are calculated for podcasting, and this will give a better explanation and insight into these numbers – or lack there of.

Jenna Spinelle, co-host of Democracy Works for the McCourtney Institute for Democracy at Penn State University, shared her experience getting a show off the ground rather quickly and expectations she has for podcasting in 2019. She has written two articles for Medium on the subject, they’re linked below. She will also be on a panel at Podcast Movement this summer, don’t miss it.

Lastly, they talk about a new partner for Blubrry, Audioburst. Free transcriptions and audio bursts of your podcast. They help you take your content to the next level with easy ways to share sound bites of your show and add a transcription to your website. Learn more with the link in the show notes.

Thanks for listening and please subscribe via your favorite podcast app. If you’d like to be a guest on the show reach out to MacKenzie. She’s always looking for fun, new podcasters that use Blubrry services, specifically PowerPress.

  • Who are my subscribers? Why nobody can tell you that other than your listeners.
  • Having a podcast PAGE on your site and why that is just extra work. Use the blog roll instead. Blogging and podcasting are very, very similar. Your blog posts should be with your podcast posts (assuming they are on a similar topic.)
  • Upgrading and downgrading podcast hosting every month; Blubrry has many customers doing this. The only way to do this where it’s not costing you more is to upgrade 2 days prior to the next payment date.
