Main topic this week: “Is Podcast Search a Game Changer?”
-Define “Podcast Search”
-Keyword Searches to Discover New Shows via a traditional search engine - works!
-Keyword Searches inside the actual audio episode of a podcast to discover shorter audio
-Many believe that audio search is key to solving podcast discovery and is the future, but history proves this is wrong.
-The http://Audiosear.ch is an example
-Audiosear.ch Clipmaker and This American Life audio clip sharing tools, Clammer.
-Clip sharing has a small place in how people discover new shows
-Key way people hear about new podcasts is via word of mouth
Tip of the Week: Authentic Audio Storytelling
- Most Podcasts are Storytelling Podcasts - Hosts describing anything is often rooted in an explained story that is often rooted in authentic life experiences.
-Authentic is REAL and NATURAL voices and life experience storytelling
-How to do this? Find the most interesting aspect of your authentic story and tease it. Then add a little self-depreciating humor, condense the audio with authentic stories.
-Professional Level Storytelling podcasts are like “Audio Drama’s” or “Journalistic Reporting”.
-Most Comedy is storytelling
-Format Reality or Fiction, most are reality based, fiction shows are usually based on literature and are like audio TV dramas that have scripts and have sound effects, actors.

Happy holidays fellas. I really needed to hear this episode. Thank you so much, I've done a lot of these things to try to improve listener engagement, and nothing has worked. I get a comment here and there but that's about it people don't use SpeakPipe, my twitter interaction is higher, but no actual comments. I'll keep going, maybe a few more listeners will join in. I'd actually be very happy to have a small group of regulars.
