Recording studio 473x379 This Week on Stimulated Boredom

Where the magic happens...

Week of: April 30 – May 8, 2012

We have a doozy of a show for you this week – 4 hours of “doozyness”, in fact – as we delve into how to create your own podcast and everything that you need to know to get started and have the best chance at creating a successful show. As someone who has been doing a podcast for over 7 years – of which is listened to in over 100 countries – there are a lot of tips, tricks and lessons (including mistakes) that I have learned over the years.

I am joined by listener favorite, Patrick, who recently began his own podcast for his business…therefore you will have the benefit of hearing from someone who has been producing a personal show for many years, in addition to the perspective of someone who is just starting out in the world of podcasting.

We cover everything from:

  • How to choose your subject matter
  • Planning your content, format & structure
  • Tips & tricks
  • Mistakes I’ve made along the way and how you can avoid them
  • What I’ve learned and principles I’ve stuck to over the years
  • Choosing the right microphone(s) and recording software
  • Building your audience, branding and marketing

If you have ever thought about starting your own podcast, you will hear a detailed discussion of everything that you will need to know in order to get started and to drastically increase your show’s chance of success.

We approached the subject matter with the intent of helping the average person get started without breaking the bank on expensive gear in the process.

As always, enjoy the show! |

My Jedi Shadow Brings All The Sith To The Yard

Week of: April 16 – April 23, 2012

I kick off this week’s program by briefly discussing my newest nerd obsession, “Star Wars: The Old Republic” (SWTOR) and my first experience with an MMORPG…n00b style. Is it worth trading an hour of sleep each night per level my character rises?

Moving on to the week in news, I discuss the burden and hardship that Ann Romney had to endure while raising 5 boys full-time with only a mere $250 million in the bank, nannies, personal assistants and custom car elevators.

As the general election heats up – and with Romney becoming the presumptive GOP nominee – the battle for female voters has taken center stage. With the President’s 20 point lead among women in battleground states, the GOP latch onto an unfortunate statement from a Democratic operative as their proof that the President is waging, “a War on Women” by using Multi-Millionaire stay-at-home-Mom, Ann Romney, as their expert (and martyr) on women’s issues in the workplace, apparently.

I’ll ask my single Mom who raised 4 children on her own – while working double-shifts 6 days a week at 2 hospitals – if she feels that Mrs. Romney speaks for and understands average Moms in the country.

As always, enjoy the show! |
