Amuse-bouche of Podcasting Advice
Borrowing from the Wiki definition of this french term: an amuse-bouche is a single, bite-sized hors d'oeuvre. Different from appetizers which are ordered off the menu, amuse-bouches are the chef's selection alone and served as a tingler for the taste buds to prepare the guest for the meal and to offer a glimpse into the chef's approach to cooking. Literally translated, the term is "mouth amuser".
Like a fine chef, Mr. Jackson dishes up a podcasting tingler for our pleasure. These tinglers are a window into the world of his book on "More Podcast Money" available from his website. We all assimilate differently. I rather like Chef Jackson's bite-at-a-time approach to his content. Bravo!
Dave be the man
What ever Dave says, it is pleasant, and worth our time. Thanks Dave, for all of the help. Please, do not stop!
David Jackson is approaching this idea in the utmost professional way. I myself am amazed that people still take the potential of the podcast medium for granted. I have operated a podcast that has made money so this topic is near and dear to me. David's content is spot on. Good info and good sound. Well done.
