Podcast Pontifications

Where plenty of podcasts about podcasting (PAPs) tell you what to do, Podcast Pontifications gives you what to think about in podcasting. These daily, insightful forward-looking episodes have one central tenet: Podcasting needs to be made better, not just easier. Designed for the working podcaster, these short-form episodes get you thinking about the future of podcasting and how you can better prepare yourself -- and your shows -- for the future. The goal is simple: help you develop critical thinking skills needed to make the best future-proofed podcast you can with the tools of today. Plus a few sneak previews of what might be coming tomorrow.This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podsights - https://podsights.com/privacy



episode 8: Fighting Back At Podcasting's Disinformation Problem

Unscrupulous actors are quick to offer—for a nominal fee—promises of helping you cut in line or sure-fire ways to accelerate your podcasting efforts. And you probably find those offers enticing, especially when the prevailing wisdom all sounds like “put in your time and maybe you’ll make it in a few years”.

No one wants to hear that. Especially when they also hear anecdotes of success shortcuts. Maybe The Olds just don’t know everything.

And we don’t. But some of us, like me, are particularly good at sniffing out bullshit. To that end, I've created a new section in the Advancing Podcasting community called Too Good To Be True. So the next time you encounter an offer, service, or piece of advice that seems… well, too good to be true - post it there.
