Douglas E WelchHow to use social media, in all its forms, to support your podcast, without going mad in the process.

Having a social media presence is an important part of every podcasters marketing strategy, but how do you do it without spending more time marketing than producing your shows. Douglas E. Welch shows you how to hook all the parts together so that an action on one social media service can easily propagate to many others — spreading the word, without wearing you out.

Ron’s podcast GriddleCakes Radio was used as the demo podcast for the screenshots on the walkthrough. After reading James posting about this I can see that we kinda got what we wanted, downloadable podcasts over the air but with some hoop jumping required to make it work. Its not 100% perfect but it does get the job done. Also, podcasts need to be 10mb or less in order for them to be downloadable over the cellular network and can be any size for over WiFi. I recently posted about this on our mailing list over at

We’re asking that you PLEASE RSVP on the meetup site so we can get a headcount for how many will be attending.

As a writer Steve Boyett has published novels, short stories, and feature screenplays. In 1999 he took some time off from writing, and during this period he learned to play the didgeridoo, a unique Australian wind instrument. This led him to learn about digital recording, which led to composing electronica, which led to DJing. Which, as everybody knows, leads straight to heroin.

He swore he’d never be a DJ. When he started DJing, he swore it was just for fun and he’d never play out. When he started playing out, he swore it would only be at parties. When he started playing small clubs, he decided the smartest thing to do would be to swear never to become filthy, stinking rich.

Steve has played clubs in Hollywood, Vegas, San Francisco, and Reno; Burning Man; conventions; after parties; and private events. He produces three of the world’s most popular music podcasts: Podrunner and Podrunner: Intervals (workout music mixes), and Groovelectric (dance music mixes of what he calls New Old Funk). His novel Ariel will be reprinted in summer 2009, and his novel Elegy Beach will be published in fall 2009.

We’re asking that you PLEASE RSVP so we can get a headcount for how many will be attending. If we exceed our facilities capacity we may have to relocate to another location for this meeting. Too many people is always a good problem to have. We’ll keep you up to date via this mailing list or our website.

Matthew Wayne Selznick is an author, podcaster, musician and evangelist for the DIY (Do it Yourself)  ethic. He launched his first podcast on October 15, 2004, The MWS Media Radio Show Podcast (later the DIY Endeavors Podcast) and was one of the first podcasters to feature non-RIAA music exclusively. Since that time, he has produced four different podcasts and appeared as a guest or reader on many others. He works as a consultant helping small companies create their own podcasts, speaks at conferences and conventions about podcasting and new media, and is quoted in “Tricks of the Podcasting Masters” and other books.  Matt’s current podcast is a personal “ego-cast,” Sonitotum.

Matthew made a strong run up the Amazon Charts with his first book, “Brave Men Run — A Novel of the Sovereign Era,” reaching #3 in Action & Adventure and #53 overall. “Brave Men Run” is also available for free in audio form at and several e-book editions including Amazon Kindle, iPhone / iPod Touch and DRM-free formats. Following his DIY ethic, most of his music is released with a Creative Commons Music Sharing license and is available for podcasters to use in their shows.

Matthew will speak about the huge marketing, promotional and most importantly community value creating a podcast edition of a book can bring an author.  While his experience is primarily with fiction, he will also touch on how non-fiction authors can use podcasting. His success with “Brave Men Run” is comparable and in some cases far exceeded by other podcast novelists — Matthew will relate their stories and take questions.  Copies of the Swarm Press paperback edition of “Brave Men Run — A Novel of the Sovereign Era” will be available for purchase from the author after his talk.

We need to go ahead and get everyone signed up for our live podcasting booth schedule for New Media Expo (which is less than a month away). On the July 27th we’ll be opening the schedule up to outsiders, after which OC members can not be guaranteed a slot if it fills up. It only takes a minute to sign up for a time slot on the wiki:

It’s also time to put together the OC Podcasters flyer that we’ll be handing out at the booth. You can once again have your show’s logo on the flyer for a very small amount of money. This year the pricing is tiered based on how soon you pay:

- $25 if you pay by this Wednesday, July 23th

- $35 if you pay by July 27th

- $45 if you pay by August 3rd

Obviously it’s best for everyone, including you, if you take care of this sooner rather than later.

Your artwork is due to Gregory Lemon by August 3rd, art will not accepted after this date. Dimensions are 600×600, the standard 300×300 is ok but may not look the best on the flyer.

We are a non profit affiliate of Council of Orange County, Society of St. Vincent de Paul. We are also a member of America’s Second Harvest the Nation’s Food Bank Network.

We were founded in October 1983. You should be able to find many facts and figures at our web site,
Our founders name is Dan Harney
Director: Joe Schoeningh
General Manager: Jerry Creekpaum
Board President: Bob Whiton

On the web site you will also find a video from our capital campaign that has some interesting shots of the old and the new. There are also numerous pictures of the new building.

The Board conducted an $8.5million capital campaign to turn this building into a food bank. The theme of the capital campaign is/was: Within Our Reach. A copy of the logo can be found on our web site. It is a stylized drawing of an adult holding a child up to reach an orange on a tree.

Interviews and angles:
Agencies - How does the new facility help their agency?
Regular Volunteers - Is it an easier place to be a volunteer - potential to be more efficient?
Board Members - How do they think that the new facility will impact the community? What was it like trying to raise the money?
Staff - How does the new facility impact their job? How is it different then the old building?

Thanks to all of you that have volunteered to be a part of this project.

Attached is the audio captured at the Jan 9th meetup where Bob talked about the event and suggested some angles on how to cover it. We would like to have both audio and video captured at this event. Saturday, January 26th at 10am is when the event begins, we would like to meetup before the start of the event for breakfast. A followup posting and email to our mailing list will contain all of this info.

We will be using twitter to send out updates telling people about the schedule at our booth(s). OC and LA Podcasters have a twitter account that we’re asking people to follow. The twitter account is: socalpodcasters which can be followed here: Updates will be sent out 15 minutes before the next timeslot begins to give people time to arrive at our booth and not miss a thing. While at the expo people can send a txt message on their mobile phone to 40404 with the words “follow socalpodcasters” and they will begin receiving updates txt’d to them as they are sent out. This has worked will for other conferences in the past and we hope it will work well for us at the expo. So if you haven’t already got on the twitter bandwagon nows a good time to get your feet wet.

follow socalpodcasters at

OC Podcasters will be streaming live at the expo. We’ll be using TalkShoe as the way for people to interact with us at the expo from the confort of their own home.

Jason Tucker <![CDATA[Podenstein]]> 2007-01-15T22:28:37Z 2007-01-15T22:28:37Z If you missed the January Meetup, it was announced that this year, we shall bring Podenstein to Life !. A handout with some information regarding Podenstein in 2007 can be found in a PDF at ocpodcasters_podenstein_070110.pdf

Begun in 2006, the Podenstein audio drama project is a roughly 30 minute Radio Drama style story from Ron of Griddlecakes Radio

“Victor Podenstein is a young, handsome, and brilliant doctor. He has a passion for podcasting, but a voice best for a mime. So he goes off to create the perfect podcasting voice. Dr. Podenstein soon finds that his creation has a life of its own. And then things go terribly wrong.”

Along with the story itself, we also plan to create a promotional teaser and a “How to” documentary. The hope is to learn from the experience, share the lessons learned with others, and potentially submit for discussion at the 2007 Expo. We’ve started a very skeletal blog, to journal the experiments involved in creating Podenstein

While our first need is for voices for all the two dozen parts, we also need more, like the following:

Sound Effects , Score & Theme Music , Gathering and preparing material for the ‘How to’ documentary, Logo and Graphics, Video Editing, Titles, Credits, Promotion (playing the teaser, sharing the feed with friends & family, forum mentions)
… and for the Live Recording Event, plenty of equipment and services will be needed as well.

To get your hands and mind involved with the nuts and bolts of putting this beast together, please visit the blog page ‘The Creation of Podenstein’.

The project email address is

We hope you enjoy Podenstein when the Monster is unleashed!

Scott Stys <![CDATA[Check out The Scene Zine]]> 2006-10-15T19:30:16Z 2006-10-15T19:30:16Z Marcus Couch and The Scene Zine were inadvertantly left of the flyer, and I’d like to apologize for that. In order to try and make things right, here’s a link to the show.  I encourage everyone go check out the show and while your at it, share the love with a friend so that we can get Marcus the publicity that he unfortunately missed out on.

These recordings are very much so in their RAW format with no editing done to them.

Scott Stys <![CDATA[Post Expo Blues -Thanks for the memories]]> 2006-10-02T16:51:04Z 2006-10-02T16:51:04Z As one of the folks that took part in pulling the whole OC Podcasters booth together, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that helped make this booth and event so much fun and trouble free. The audio stream worked flawlessly, the podcasting went off without a hitch and we managed to fill 16 hours of time with great commentary and fun interviews.

I’m not one to name names, but extra special thanks goes to Adam Christianson of the Maccast for the flyer and shirt design, Craig Patchett of What’s On! for securing the booth and making sure the money got to the venue, Jason Tucker of Geekfit for getting the stream up and running and Gerry Grant of for supplying the PA system that we had to keep lowering the volume on.

Thank you to everyone that took the time to Podcast and work the booth and thanks to everyone that chipped in with financial aid to make it happen.

Everyone ready to start planning for next year?
