The interview with Alex Genadinik was recorded on March 7, with the Ringr app.

[Editor's note: This interview is divided into two parts due to technical problem with my iPhone. More about this issue in a future solo show episode of my podcast. Listen to part II here. ^ML]

I interviewed Jim Sweeney on February 13. I wonder if Jim's favorite beverage is apple cider? I look forward to a followup conversation with MikeRaffone in the near future.

[Editor's note: Our conversation ended in an abrupt way, around the 50 min. mark, due to a technical issue.]

I interviewed Alison Donaghey on January 27. I had put the volume a bit high, so the recording got a doubling effect. Kris of Ringr fixed the sound, by using a dynamics processor filter to gate the audio.

#ThisIsMyMessage is the hashtag for the podcast documentary, The Messengers. My podcast, EGO NetCast, will be mentioned in the credits of the film, as I have been one of the backers of the crowdfunding campaign for the making of this movie. I recently purchased The Messengers black t-shirt via TeeChip.

I am thinking of using this service for the crowdfunding campaign for my first forthcoming book on (black) tea (#teaFTWbook). I have registered an account on Red Bubble, after reading a post on Small Business Trends. I have added John Cox's caricature of Ralph Waldo Emerson and his tea quote:

I have been thinking about my struggle with the workflow of this podcast, compared with the "flow" I have together with my co-host, Johan Gustaphzon, on Produktivitéet (productivity + tea = "productivitea" in Swedish). Should I keep on creating content for EGO NetCast? I have come to the conclusion that I will continue with this podcast, because I have a message to deliver:

This episode of EGO NetCast is produced (read: "marinated" / procrastinated) during the intermediate days between Boxing Day ("Another Day X-mas" in Swedish) and New Year's Day. Please, listen to the episode for more details regarding the show notes, including shout out messages and related links to this holiday show. The next solo episode will cover my three words for 2017, according to Chris Brogan's meme.

From my conversation with Josh Elledge, you will learn how he built a business empire by being frugal, finding great deals. A funny tidbit is our conversation about the weather in Florida and Josh's "issue" with umbrellas.

This episode was recorded on September 12, with the Ringr app. I downloaded the recording (audio format: mono mix, sample rate 44 kHz, Flac, 101.7 MB) to my MacBook and then did the post production with Auphonic(112 kbps, mp3, 46.4 MB). Podcasting equipment: iPhone 6S Plus, iRig Mic Cast microphone, and SnapRecorder portable recording booth.

Here is short excerpt from Josh's media kit page:

If you are a regular listener to EGO NetCast, you know that I like a "raw format" of the recording, without too much of editing and post-production work. Due to some changes to the iOS audio pipeline, you could hear aslight "echoey" sound in the beginning of our conversation.

Kris of Ringr helped me out and manually cleaned up the recording.

More show notes and links for this episode will be found at www.egonetcast.com/blog in the near future.

I learned from my conversation with Brian Peters that you could auto"magically" manage your new media accounts and be a social media evangelist at the same time. As a former purchaser, it gave me a kick to learn about a company without regular sales people. I wonder what a Happiness Hero is reading at the moment?

This episode was recorded on August 9, with the Ringr app. I downloaded the recording (audio format: mono mix, sample rate 44 kHz, Flac, 114.6 MB) to my MacBook and then did the post production with Auphonic (112 kbps, mp3, 53.1 MB). Podcasting equipment: iPhone 6S Plus, iRig Mic Cast microphone, and SnapRecorder portable recording booth.

This is a meta episode of EGO NetCast, spending some time on the development of my podcasting. I recently reached a milestone of 500 downloads of my conversation with Jon Ferrara.

 

Could this be my break, after 10 years, since I started my first podcast on Soild Vox

I am including a screen dump of the general stats from the dashboard of my Libsyn account. You could see a nice trend line over a period of 3 months.

 

Did you know that overall median download number is 173 on Libsyn?

I have been thinking of the future of my podcasting for some time.

 

A Direct Message question from Chris Reimer on podcasting, made my day, giving me another sign that I am on the right way, if I stick with it for the long run…

I have subscribed to Karin Hoegh's e-course on podcasting. In the second issue she talks about what is the meaning of having a podcast and what should come out of your podcasting. Her email gave me food for thought and here are my answers to the questions on goal, strategy, ambition and success factor.

  1. My goal is to spread better ideas regarding new media, business philosophy, and the good life (including tea).
  2. The strategy is to give moral support and resources to business minded individuals, in an educational, engaging and entertaining way.
  3. My ambition is to give the listeners and readers food for thought, and inspire them to take action and achieve their values through social media, business and personal activities. They should feel free to reach out to me, if they are interested to learn more about the good life, including tea drinking.
  4. The success factor is to continue with solo shows and interviews as a guide for implementing ideas into actions, based on the teachings from Lyceum, Aristotle's school in Athens, and others that have beeninspired by his philosophy, e.g., Will Durant.

 

I will create my own success by participating in Fizzle's course, Start a Blog that Matters. [Editor's note: Affiliate links.]

In the next solo show I will talk about my struggle with the podcasting workflow, and I will mention guests in the pipeline, ways to support EGO NetCast, etc.

Stay tuned and feel free to tweet me a question with the hashtag, #AskLyceum.

I celebrated my milestone with drinking the fine tea, Darjeeling First Flush SFTG FOP1 (Special Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe). Is this tea "Far Too Good For Ordinary People"? ;)
