Audio Branding and UK Podcasting with Mike Russell | The Podcraft Podcast

Hosted by: Colin Gray

Colin has been teaching people how to podcast since 2007. He's worked with Universities, businesses and hobbyists alike. He started The Podcast Host to share his experience and to help as many people as possible get into Podcasting. He runs Podcraft, to spread the art of podcasting, and does the Mountain Bikes Apart podcast whenever he can. Who doesn't like to talk bikes, after all!

It's time for an in-between-isode, otherwise known as an interruption to normal programming! If you've been listening long, you'll know Series 2 is all about Podcasting equipment, taking you through the audio chain from start to finish. Well, this is a little break from the techie chat, and instead a conversation with the founder of the UK Podcaster's Community, Mike Russell.

mike russell mrcMike Russell, along with his wife, Izabel, run Music Radio Creative, one of the best known audio branding, audio production and voice-over companies on the market. Somehow, alongside running MRC, they've found time to start and nurture the biggest Podcasting community currently in the UK. Most recently this led to the amazing UK Podcaster's conference which happened in Birmingham in August, at which I was luckily enough to be a speaker.

During this episode Mike and I cover a lot of ground, ranging through how podcasting is developing in the UK and how we compare to the states, to the development of podcasting listening habits and platforms. I had a great time talking Podcasting with Mike, so I hope you find a few things of interest in there too.

As always, gimme feedback! Let me know what you think. I'd love to get more callers on the show, so send me an audio question. Record yourself and send me the MP3 at podcraft (at) thepodcasthost.com. Talk soon!

    I AM REALLY THRILLED OF THIS POWERFUL , INSPIRING, PODCASTING:
    Colin Gray (Podcast Teacher, ADVOCATE, and LOVER of PODCAST )
    And
    Mike Russell & wife Isabel from U.K. founder of Podcasting . Podcast is Internet Radio .
    The two amazing speakers talked about the future of this platform of media yet to be developed. They talked about how to reach & educate , get people involved, just like myself that didn’t know much about podcasting and the power of it ! Mike talked about future plans to get people together in different parts of U.K PODCAST purposes . He added provide SUPER FAST WIFI at those events IS A MUST. They both look forward to these coming up get together.
    Mike reported that during a podcast event he asked his audience by a show of hand how many of them where inspired & thrilled by a podcast / American ??
    EVERY HAND IN the room went UP !!!
    The podcast /American Mike was referring to were all of them living in UK , but had never met.
    I missed the website Mike referred to where all the podcasts done so far have been recorded and arecbeing made available. Very Dear Colin , could I PLEASE get that WEBSITE from YOU PLEASE, pretty PLEASE ???
    THANK YOU !!!

    Both podcast LOVERS ( & myself too ) , agreed that people who do podcasting are cool , fun to be around etc, etc.
    Yes I agree 200% + + with that thought because I truly had THE MOST ENJOYABLE TIME .., while stumbling on this PODCAST Theme last night that I couldn’t put my iPhone down & get away from the computer to go to sleep .
    PODCAST & your site had made me feel so so good and brought the best of me !!!

    It will take too long to share more …

    THANK YOU SO SO MUCH FOR PROVIDING SO MUCH VALUABLE CONTENT, ASSISTANCE, SUPPORT WITHOUT Asking for a credit card after the first presentation. It means so much to me to have got that far in pursuing Podcast because it is so new to me couldn’t possibly said after a short exposure that I want or don’t want podcast.

    I learned so much with you in just few hours. Your content was very engaging and had outstanding VALUE. I have not been to sleep yet & I VALUE GREATLY THIS OPPORTUNITY THAT YOU HAVE MADE POSSIBLE FOR ME.

    I don’t have a website yet. BLUBRRY is the website that fit my needs . I certainly will apply for it after I get some sleep .

    Forever Grateful,

    Jeanine
