Audio only podcasts?

I am pleasantly surprised by how well my audio only podcast, the Irish Law and Small Business Podcast, is doing on YouTube podcasts.

It is not as if you… Continue reading Audio only podcasts?

Starting and running a successful podcast

Researching podcasting this week has led me to conclude that there is no one way to create and run a successful podcast. Finding your own voice is of vital importance.

My podcast is growing nicely and deserves more care and attention

My podcast, The Irish Law and Small Business Podcast, is growing nicely and deserves more attention and effort than I have given it to date.

Yet they are being… Continue reading My podcast is growing nicely and deserves more care and attention
