Portland Podcast Meetup Next Week

I’ll be at the Portland Podcast Meetup next week and, well, I’m gonna try to shake things up.

Hope to see you there.

Something tells me this thing will be recorded though, for those who enjoy the timeshifting. 😉

On the stage that night is the mighty mighty Josh Bancroft – on the topic of mobile Podcasting and the handsome but hangry Jason Ruby – on the topic of selling ads in your Podcast.

Me, I’m going to chat about actually selling your content for the kinds of fees that let you quit your day job. Topics will include the Affiliate Guy Podcast and the 10k Podcast.

Should be fun. Those who attend should get “all sides of the story” that night.

Us Portland Podcasters are an interesting group.

What Me Agree With Comic Strip Blogger? Comments on Comments to Adam Curry

So, Comic Strip Blogger made some comments at Curry.com regarding my quote resulting comments. He says, and I quote,

And remember Curry: don’t pay too much attention to that music thingy (indie music? or other crap). The most important in podcasting is talk talk talk and that’s why PDN is more important than PMN. Much more.

I couldn’t agree more.

Apple, like it or not, set the standard for music and payments. It just won’t get bigger than 99 cents a song – ever. As one of the biggest U2 fans on the planet, I think it is a crime that their life’s work is valued at less than $150 yet it would cost me more than that to get a 2 gig Nano.

Talk is, and will always be, worth more online. Books at Audible sell for as much as $20 at Audible and paid Podcasts with great content will be ‘where the money is.’

And our little coming 10k Podcast won’t be the only one.

The 10 Thousand Dollar Podcast?

Press releases and all the good stuff are coming but I wanted to mention it here, first.

What with the quote from Adam Curry on financially viable Podcasts (and a few hints over at the MarketingOnlineLive.com Podcast) I have to say a few words about the 10k Podcast.

A) Yes, we’re for real. Yes, we’re doing this (among other things) for source material for the book. Yes, we fully expect people to pay 10k for this Podcast. Yes, it is a niche audience, but a bigger one than you might expect. Look for a site soon.

B) It launches Valentines Day. How sweet is that? Pun intended.

C) The goal, simply, is to make each episode worth 20k to the business user interested in the topic. If we can provide 20k of content each week for a year, there is no reason why we won’t get 10k from each listener.

D) Premium Podcasting will deliver the content and, no, it won’t be DRMd.

E) My partners for this one: Alex Mandossian and Joe Polish.
