73 Common Podcast Mistakes

Dave talks about some common podcasting mistakes these include:

Making your first impression by apologizing for not putting out a show. Remember there are lots of new listeners on the way (so why not do this at the end if you need to).

People assume that people have heard Part 1 of an interview so they (literally) start the podcast with some opening music, and then (with no setup) go right back to the interview (so a new listener has no clue what they've walked in on).

Volume on conference calls seems to be an issue. I realzie that you have no control over this when you are on the call, but you do have some control over the volume of the podcast. Check out the Levelator at www.gigavox.com
