I decided to put this little post together not entirely from a selfless point of view. Full disclosure: I am a podcaster and I would LOVE to get any of these for Christmas 🙂 Which is why I’m sharing them with you, not only for my own selfish little reasons

Happy Birthday, Libsyn! [updated with notes in brackets by Elsie 11/9/2014] Liberated Syndication turned 6 today. It’s sometimes immature for it’s age- throwing tantrums from time to time, getting in fights, and driving its parents crazy. We’ve given up a lot of our lives to nurture our baby and watch

Apple had a doosey of a media event today, revamping much of its iPod lineup and even reinventing the Apple TV. The Shuffle, Nano, and iPod Touch all got major upgrades as expected inline with predictions from our favorite rumor sources Macrumors, Techcrunch and Daring Fireball. It was a very

This is a 3-step tutorial on how to quickly post a file to libsyn3. This is only really appropriate for those times when you just need to get a file up and able to be downloaded- but not published to any destination (rss feed, webpage, app, player, etc). Step 1.
