Why Aren't Podcasters Sharing Links To Old Episodes In Social Media?
Mark DeJesus recently sent me an email saying… “I notice a lot of people, including myself, bring up old blog articles to put into their facebook feed; to recycle them and expose past material to new followers. But I have not seen anyone do this with podcast episodes posts. Is there any reason for that? I think my followers would love to check out old episodes of my podcast, and may become listeners by catching a past episode they enjoy. Any reason why I don't see people doing this? ”
In this episode, I share four reasons that might explain why we don't see more podcasters sharing links to their older episodes in their social media channels. If you decide to make it a point to start sharing some of your more evergreen content, I encourage you to check out Buffer.com.
Field Interviews With The Roland R-05 (& R-09HR) Digital Audio Recorder
My favorite piece of podcasting equipment has always been the Roland Digital Audio Recorder. First is was the R-09HR, but when it was discontinued, I moved over to the Roland R-05 Recorder.
I’m personally responsible for the sale of literally thousands of these recorders. The number one question that I get from those who buy this recorder is… “How can I best use this recorder to do interviews out in the field?”
Most of my content creation has been done inside the studio. When I would do an occasional interview, out in the field, I would simply use nothing more than the onboard microphones built into the recorder.
In my Roland Digital Recorder Tutorial, I have always shown a cable that you could buy that would allow you to use a dynamic XLR mic. Recently, more and more requests came in from folks who wanted to know how they might be able to hook up two microphones to the Roland Recorder.
In this episode, I talk about my testing with the ART USB Dual Pre, Beachtek DXA-2T and Saramonic SR-AX101 devices and my thoughts on how they allow you to take the audio from two dynamic XLR mics into the Roland recorder.

Upcoming Event Schedule
One of my favorite things about traveling to, and speaking at conferences, is meeting members of my community. I always make it a point to host a community meetup wherever I travel.
Below is a list of events that you might be interested in. If you can make it to any of these events, I'd love to have the opportunity to meet you. If you are not able to attend the event, but are in that area, I'd still love for you to come to the personal community meetup that I will host in that town.
