Ep 27: The Podfest Show

Are conferences and industry trade shows worth the price of admission?

Ask Mike Anything:
Question: How can I turn my Blab interviews into a podcast on iTunes. I just don’t get it.
Answer: Blab emails you the Audio & Video file after each completed Blab. I suggest taking the video file and opening in Audition or your DAW (digital audio workstation) and edit the audio just like you would your recorded podcast and export as .mp3 and export to your podcast host just like you would any audio file.
