My Digital Life with Rob Greenlee
My Digital Life with Rob Greenlee

Here is episode #3 of the new “My Digital Life Show with Rob Greenlee” for Sunday, June 2nd 2013.

This episode is even closer to the vision that I have for this show, but have more improvements to come.  You will notice that I improved the audio production and am now using my Sure SM7B microphone and Mackie 802-VLZ3 mixer.  This change from episode one is dramatic.

My goal here is not do a monologue show, but to have some guests sprinkled in to add some varied opinions and to get listeners more involved in the show.

The topic this week stays focused on my passion and that is the medium of “Podcasting”.

The Topics This Week:
1) Top 13 Things that “Really” Build a Podcast Audience
2) EFF Legal Defense fundraising $50K+ to Fight a “Podcast Patent Troll”

Here are links to things mentioned in the show:

The EFF Save Podcasting effort is here, the link to submit and see submitted prior art is here

My Digital Life Show #2: Is Podcasting the Same as Radio?

My Digital Life with Rob GreenleeHere is episode #2 of the new “My Digital Life Show with Rob Greenlee”.  This episode is much more focused and becoming more like the vision that I have for the show.

The topic this week gets back to my passion and that is the medium of “Podcasting”.  This show will target one specific topic each week.  These topics will generally be about new media and podcasting, as it seems those topics are on my mind more then others.   I will write an article then do an audio episode about it to go into more detail on the topic.

In this episode, I discuss the long-running issue of “Is Podcasting the Same as Radio?”.  I also wrote an blog post on this topic here about a week ago. Give it a read and then listen to the audio episode.

Thank you Adrian Bacon and Daniel J. Lewis for contributing with comments that you will hear in this episode.
