Problems with content creation

I’m not a natural content creator. If you’ve followed this blog or the intermittent podcasting I do you’re saying to yourself… no f’ing duh. I believe my problem stems from not having a specialty. I have many hobbies but I don’t have anything in particular that I’m uniquely passionate...

Podcast listing solved and I curse syntax

I wasn’t able to get a response with regards to my messing up the listing of The Casual Hike at podcastindex.org. I ended up changing the file name to my RSS feed and adding the podcast back to the index. That solved my problem and I even kept the...

Finishing the edit on initial episode of the hiking podcast

I don’t like to edit. On my financial podcast, Chasing the Yield, I would put together a blog post, talk through that blog post while recording, import the WAV file into Audacity, apply normalization and a noise gate effect, then save and export to MP3. All that takes maybe...
