birth of a podcast

There are many people you can blame for the fact that I will shortly unveil (or should I say unleash? Possibly burden?) my podcast. But rather than have you cast stones at them or start fires, just simply be forewarned.

It’s coming.

The only reason for the delay is the amount of voice over work I have had to do which takes away from my planning time. And for all the "free-form" spirit of a podcast, as my clients will tell you, I’m a bit of a audio production perfectionist. But perfect is a "goal" and the work won’t go away (God willing) so off I will sail into not wholly unchartered podcasting waters.

The title of the podcast is "voxmarketising – the audio’connell podcast". What the h-e-double-hockey-sticks does that mean?

It means that on any given episode you’ll hear insight from me and my colleagues and friends around the globe about the three channels of communication that interest me the most and that I have the most professional experience within: the voice over industry ("vox"), marketing ("market") and advertising ("tising"), all in no particular order. But I had to give my podcast a name; hence, voxmarketising.

The podcast will evolve as time goes on (as every broadcast or publication I’ve ever been involved with always has) but I’m hoping the focus will be less on me offering my insights on topics of the day (though there will be some of that, no doubt) and more on interviews with experts and insightful folks from whom I have learned a lot and from whom I think you can gain some great practical business knowledge too.

Comments are always welcomed and may be used on the podcast. You can start now by dialing the voxmarketising comment line at +01 716 989 6151 from any phone. You can wish me good luck, tell me to stop before I even get started or throw in your comment about a relevant story that you’ve been thinking about. Leave your name and web site or podcast address so I can promote it and link to it on the show notes (oh yes, there will be show notes).

It will be friendly, informal, very informative and fun. It will not be an infomercial. Podcast posts will appear here on the audio’connell’s voiceover blog on! so make sure you subscribe now by clicking the buttons in the upper left hand corner of the blog.

  3. Hi Donna & Kara:

    Donna’s insights on podcasting have been a help to many potential and current podcasters including me. As with any venture, the more organized you are, the better the final product. Donna’s great at organizing podcasts.

    And Kara will be one of the voices you hear every now and again on the podcast.

    I’m really looking forward to it.

    Best always,
    – Peter

  4. I’ve been wanting to do a podcast for the past two years. However, I keep taking college classes, or go to war! Will you also play music?

  5. Voxmarketising will be more talk: voice over, marketing and advertising. Interviews, headlines and some opinions on “where this is going and what it all means.” 🙂

    Best always,
    – Peter

  6. Sigh – as if I don’t have enough to do – now I’m going to have to start listening to podcasts too.

    Bonne chance!

  7. I’m amazed at how prolific you are Peter! It would be cool to hear these posts as well as reading them… 🙂

  8. Thanks Terry. Prolific is a very kind comment, whereas most people refer to me by the latin term: “big bag o’wind” 🙂

    Thanks for visting!

    Best always
    – Peter

  9. […] I’ve also got the initial format set (it can always change, this is podcasting after all) and the segments for the first show all set. My first interview is tonight (I told you we’re getting closer to p-day!) […]
