PR010 – Podcasting “Success” with Pat FlynnPosted in podcast, Uncategorized
What defines success in podcasting? Is it subscribers, downloads, website traffic, money or something else?
Watch/listen to +Pat Flynn from the Smart Passive Income blog and podcast along with +Daniel J. Lewis +David Jackson and myself (Ray Ortega) discuss the concept of success as it applies to podcasting.
Pat was a very successful blogger (numbers, money, recognition, etc.) before he ever started a podcast. We’ll find out how starting a podcast has increased his own measure of success and learn how each podcaster on the Roundtable defines success in podcasting differently.

Listen to “Remixing The Music”Last year, Transom published a slew of excellent articles about scoring stories. The series was called “Using Music” and it featured insight on scoring from some of the best — The Kitchen Sisters, Brendan Baker, Jonathan Mitchell, Andy Mills, and Pat Mesiti-Miller. This week, HowSound adds to the mix.
Neena Pathak, a former Transom Story Workshop student, scored a story she produced for Latino USA back in April. The piece is called “Sabiduria: Negotiating Identity in a Trans-Racial Adoption.” In it, Tom Molina Duarte talks openly about being born in Costa Rica and raised by white parents in the U.S.
I heard an early draft of the story and thought there was too much music in it — that the story was “wallpapered” with music nearly every second. While that’s not necessarily a bad approach to scoring a story, I believe the music could be used more effectively if it was brought in and out at particular points. Plus, it would be valuable to hear Tom’s voice in the clear, without any music, so that he could speak directly to the listener.
So, I reached out to Neena and asked if I could remix her story — take her original session and rejigger the music. Thankfully, she agreed.
I am very grateful to Neena for allowing me to put her story under the microscope and letting me rearrange what she produced. It’s not easy to let go of something you’ve created and let someone else reshape it — publicly, no less. Thanks, too, to the staff at Latino USA for granting permission to use the story.
Comedian Marc Maron is tackling the most complex philosophical question of our day - WTF? He’ll get to the bottom of it with help from comedian friends, celebrity guests and the voices in his own head. You loved him on Morning Sedition. You kinda liked him on The Marc Maron Show. You tolerated him on Break Room Live. Now, embrace him on a show from which he cannot be fired - WTF with Marc Maron.
