88: The early bird gets the deal, dealing with criticism and tips from a pro

Mark, Marko and Bob at PodCamp TorontoYou may have noticed that episode 88 is two days late. We had a database problem on the CPB website and were unable to publish the show.

Bob was able to fix the problem and — in the process — fixed a problem we had with the CPB page in the iTunes Music Store; shows were appearing but downloads failing since episode 83.

Thanks to Daryl Cognito for his support!

Maurizio, /dev/nullOur apologies to Daniele Rossi. Somehow we managed to overlook mentioning his newest podcast, Stuttering is Cool, in our last episode (though the listing made it to the show notes). We made good on this episode. Thanks for your patience, Dani.

Zero to Podcasting in two days

A group of ‘veteran’ podcasters are collaborating to deliver a two day workshop called Zero to Podcasting (Z2P) this February as part the PodCamp Toronto program. The sessions will be a mix of campfire/circle discussions and technical presentations aimed at helping everyone, from newcomers to advanced podcasters, start from nothing and then learn and shake up the skills necessary to plan, prepare, produce, publish and promote their podcasts.

Z2P is designed to arm the absolute newcomer with the skills and ideas to start podcasting by the end of day one, and help with additional skills such as portable recording and establishing and owning their Internet presence during day two. Regardless of your level of experience, the program is designed to help establish, strengthen and refresh all of your skills.

The collaborators include Katherine Matthews and Rob Lee (Purl Diving), Sage Tyrtle (Quirky Nomads), Scarborough Dude (DicksNJanes), and Bob Goyetche and Mark Blevis (Canadian Podcast Buffet and many others).

The full Z2P program and schedule will be available on the PodCamp Toronto website. A summary and sequence of the sessions appears here for your information:
