Let’s get Model Rail Radio recognized!

I think we should all nominate Model Rail Radio for the Annual Podcast Awards.  Just go to http://podcastawards.com  and put the show in the “Entertainment” category. That is the category that makes the Model Rail Radiomost sense.

You get to submit the nomination form ONE time only! So make sure you fill out everything you want before you are done. But, do not submit the same show in multiple categories – if you do, they will throw them all out. (The exception is the People’s Choice category, so you could put it in there too.)


  • Category: Entertainment
  • Podcast Name: Model Rail Radio
  • Podcast URL: http://www.modelrailradio.com

The nominations close on October 15th, so do it now! Let’s show Tom Barbalett how much we appreciate what he started and how much work he has put in.

Podcasting 101 – BarCampCHS

Below you will find the presentation of the session on Podcasting that I gave on November 13, 2010 at BarCampCHS. Thanks to all who attended!

This presentations covers what it takes to create a basic podcast, encode it correctly, publish it to the web, and get it listed in the iTunes directory. We talked about recording equipment, editing software for the Mac and Windows, the workflow to produce a podcast, and what you need to make your podcast compatible with the widest variety of playback devices.

The audience for this session is those who don’t have any real recording or broadcasting background but are looking for ways to spread the word about their organization or cause. No special skills are required and I recommend the use of as many free and/or open source tools as possible to keep costs to a minimum.

If you would like to download the full presentation, you can click here for it in PDF format.

And if you are looking for the second presentation i did that day on WordPress Setup and Security, just look here.

Featured on Mac20Q Podcast

Mac20QuestionsI was recently interviewed by David Allen of Answer 20 Questions for his Mac20Q podcast.

In the interview we cover subjects from iPads and iMacs to mind mapping software and video and podcast recording. David is a great guy and simply fun to talk to. Give the show a listen and let me know what you think. Soon I will be doing similar podcasts of social media folk for The Social Media Monster podcasts.

My Digital Life

I just thought I would pass along to all of you a great new website dedicated to the way all live now. The Managing Your Digital Life Podcast & Blog is a great destination for information on how to deal with all the electronic stuff you accumulate during your daily life. The folks there, like Scott Bourne and Andy Ihnatko, answer questions like: What sort of hard drive should I buy? How do I create a backup plan? What’s the difference between backup and archive?

They will provide tips, tricks, news and reviews relevant to the most up-to-date storage, backup and archiving systems. The goal is to help you take care of, manage, access and safely store/backup all your precious homework assignments, videos, photos, databases, music files and more.

Managing Your Digital Life is a highly recommended site, so check them out!
