As I mentioned in last week's episode, I've decided to take the week off to celebrate the Christmas holiday with my family and friends. However, I wanted to find a way to still provide an episode of Podcast Answer Man.
I'm extremely thankful to John Kramp and David Atchison for allowing me to use the recording of an interview that they recently did with me, for their Your Leadership Story podcast.
John and David had been referred to me by my great friend, Michael Hyatt. Based upon his recommendation, they decided to sign up for the November 2013 session of my Podcasting A to Z course. After taking the course, they successfully launched their show and blogged about their experience.
I was honored to be invited to be a guest on their show. While I've been interivewed hundreds of times, this was the first the host(s) of the show asked questions that had me evalualte the valuable lessons that I've learned about people from my experience in teaching others how to podcast.
I realize that this may seem like a huge advertisement for my course. Yes, I do have my next session starting on Monday, January 12th. However, the main reason I wanted to share this interview was that I believe there are some great insights into what has caused some people to succeed in podcasting while others, even those who had shown so much potential, failed to lauch.
I hope that you enjoy the episode and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

iTunes 11.1 Now Syncs Podcasts With iOS
Yesterday, it seemed as though everyone was focused on the fact that Apple released iOS7. However, Apple also snuck out an update for iTunes bringing us version 11.1. One of the most interesting features, to me, was that you can now sync your podcast subscriptions, via iCloud, with your Apple Podcasts app on iOS. I share my thoughts on this in the episode.
TimeTrade For Scheduling
Years ago, I used to use a service called “Tungle” to assist me in setting appointments with a large number of individuals. That service was eventually purchased by RIM (Blackberry) and it quickly became less desirable over time. Recently, I found myself in need of scheduling meetings with a large number of folks for the NMX Podcasting Track as well as a number of fellow podcasters who wanted to schedule a time to interview me on their podcast. There are no shortage of online services that provide a solution for this. However, in this episode, I share why I chose to go with TimeTrade (Not an affiliate link).
Suzie Farthing & Reeger Cortell Discuss Podcasting A to Z
Suzie Farthing and Reeger Cortell are both alumni members of my Podcasting A to Z online training course. Both Suzie and Reeger are in the nursing profession and have both launched podcasts related to their professional field. Suzie's show is the One Love For Nurses podcast. Reeger's show is the Weight Loss Surgery Podcast.
The interesting thing about these two are that they were not in the same session of Podcasting A to Z. Instead, they met in the private Facebook group that is only available to alumni members who have gone through this four week course. After finding how much their show's had in common, Suzie invited Reeger to be a guest on episode 24 of her show.
I was not aware of this interview until after the fact, when Suzie emailed me to tell me that my Podcasting A to Z course became a subject of conversation in the interview. I was so thrilled to hear about their perspective on the course, that simply came out of a casual conversation. I was honored by what they had to say and I received permission to play 8 minutes of that interview in this episode of Podcast Answer Man.
Sharing Photos Online
In this week's Social Media Segment, Erik Fisher and I discuss two social media stories related to sharing photographs online. Erik shares his initial thoughts on the new PressGram service created by John Saddington. I share my thoughts on the news that Facebook now allows you to add up to 50 contributors to your photo albums and circumstances where such a feature may be helpful to building your brand.
