88 You Don't Need a "DJ" Voice To Podcast

Today we talk about using a "Radio Voice" to be a podcaster. I talk about Dr Dave from www.shrinkwrapradio.com who was worried that he didn't have a "DJ" voice. He's doing fine, and remember that many people do NOT want to hear a "DJ" voice.

We talk about forum spam. One way to cut down on spam is to require approval of all new members. George from the www.oneminutehowto.com podcast explains he finally wrote a program to stop spam on his website.

I also mention how I've started a "Step by Step" section at the School of Podcasting with my recommended software program, hosting solutions, etc. If you are looking for a quick way to start podcasting, the School of Podcasting is a great solution. www.schoolofpodcasting.com

Dave explains that Mixcraft from Acoustica is his recommended "Multi-track" podcasting software.
