Last weekend we were at Podcamp Toronto learning all about (you guessed it) …podcasting! We came up with some new ideas that we are sOoOooo excited to share with you all. Stay tuned! #PCTO19
@alpacamybagspodAlpaca My Bags
My PodCamp Toronto 2019 talk is now (fittingly) live in podcast form! In this talk, I discuss getting into podcasting, the value of mobile-first podcasting, and, from architecture to branding, how to produce high quality on a budget.
Tune in on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, Spotify, and the letstalkshow.ca (link in profile). Want to follow along with the deck? Download it from the episode page on The Let’s Talk Show website. (link in profile)
I love cross-pollination! Although it was a podcast conference, @iammowaja marketing ideas applied to podcast design totally made sense. The wedding photographers’ suggestions on how to increase your following and boost fan engagement (by losing your ego) work for any other businesses. And the lessons learned from podcast veterans … priceless (not only in their field). Thanks @podcamptoronto#pcto19#podcast#toronto
did anyone record @anthonymarco‘s presentation at #pcto19? i was too much in awe to remember to record it
Doing what I do at PodCamp. I look forward to this every year! @podcamptoronto
The weekend was all about learning about the trends and future of podcasting. Yet, there’s no forgetting where it all came from. Quite delighted to share the frame with a Rogers radio from 1935! #podcasting#podcastlife#PCTO19
Thank you and congratulations, again, to the #PCTO19 organizing team and their support networks who made this year’s gathering possible. It was great to see everyone and be inspired by the sessions. #gratitude#community
@1lorcat and I had a great time at Podcamp this weekend. We are excited to take all the knowledge we learned and use it to make our podcast the best it can be! #pcto19https://t.co/BVH8yjPiqu
Spoke today at @podcamptoronto. The conversation was about blogging/vlogging/podcasting and budgets. I made 3 points. 1. Have a plan and a budget. Without it you have an expensive hobby. 2. Register your business. There are so many write-offs 3. Have an exit plan if you aren’t making money. Pretty common sense. There are many ways to earn a living being creative online.You just have to be smart about it, have a plan. Work at it, learn, be ready to pivot and have an exit plan. #pcto19#podcamp#learning#smallbiz#buisnessofblogging#money
Retargeting can also include a Facebook pixel code that you can embed on your website. The pixel is activated when you visit the website and then when you go on #Facebook, the retargeting #ad will appear #pcto19#pcto
Google remarketing is a passive lead generation strategy #pcto19#pcto
A pleasure speaking today at PodCamp Toronto 2019, talking podcasting on a budget and building a stylistic philosophy of low budget into your podcasting system. We got cut a little short… but, to be fair, that’s because the audience was so engaged in the discussion — and that ain’t a bad problem to have.
Look out for the full video — coming soon! #PCTO19
#pcto19@shanebee: The RSS feed from Blogger will mostly adapt to the requirements of Apple and iTunes. Blogger doesn’t have a media player, but you can add one with HTML. You can click on the file & play it from the blog as well without a media player
#pcto19: @shanebee stores his podcast audio files on the Internet Archives and then attaches them on Blogger posts using the “Enclosure” function. He also puts a link to the audio file in the blog post
@mzalmeid@PodCampToronto Thanks! I’m glad you enjoyed. I’ll release a full version of this talk (in #podcast form!) along with the deck. In the meantime, feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions! #pcto19

@PodCampToronto It was my first one, and always something new to learn whether new to doing this, or done it for a long time (with a multi year hiatus). Hopefully it won’t be the last #PCTO19
Huge congrats to all the @CanPodAwards winners! You all are an inspiration to the Canadian #podcasting game. Sad I couldn’t be there tonight, but here’s raising a glass to all of you for your hard work and great content! @PodCampToronto#PCTO19
There’s a difference between rehashed *public* radio (Serial I guess?) and rehashed *private* radio, the latter being The Best Bits of the Wacky & Whosits Morning Show and the weekend stuff the CRTC makes you do. #clarity#PCTO19https://t.co/NjhABHfNM6
Several participants @PodCampToronto seem intrigued with my description of “pop-up” #podcasts Not for every maker, to be sure; but fits as sidebar-type “extra” piece(s) for others. I’ll produce a piece about this in the next few days. #PCTO19
Excellent Humber @medialivelab connections at @PodCampToronto today: I see about 8 students from first-year #Radio dilploma program; Alum/faculty including @stevesaylor @RadioHumberAlum and @PGRadio_Humber alum @JacobMcCourt Great day 1! Next: @CanPodAwards #podcast #celebrate
@PGRadio_HumberHumber post-grad Radio and Media Production
Passionate panel discussion on the impact of technology and media on politics, fake news, and reaching the “disengaged middle ground”. Lots of interesting viewpoints and audience input #PCTO19@PodCampTorontohttps://t.co/6iVMQzHY0l
I’m enjoying the side-eye shade being thrown at Zuckerburg at this social media marketing session.
I won’t name names, because we’re being watched 😒 #pcto19
“We’re allowing a marketing mutiny to happen over information […] we’re mixing up the public interest and the public appetite.” Algorithms feed us more of what we react to. That doesn’t mean it’s good stuff. #pcto19
One of my Ottawa friends is in Toronto doing the photography and a talk for “Podcamp”, since I’m a professional tagger alonger and hanger outter, I am obviously attending the conference also.
It has social media components but it is mostly focused on Podcasts and I’m all kinds of inspired. Interestingly enough, podcasts have been on my mind lately (without even knowing I would be here this weekend).
Also, this audio editing session is really mega throwing my mind and emotions back to my TV Broadcasting college program days 😳. ___ #Podcamp#pcto19#Toronto#SocialMedia#Podcasts#Radio#Audio
“I would challenge you, if you do a professional podcast, do a personal podcast too. Why not?” Why not indeed. I just might. #PCTO19 /3
“Every band is someone’s favourite band.” I.E., even podcasts with small followings matter. As a writer of five novels with moderate followings, I dig that. #PCTO19 /4
“To extend the metaphor, every podcast is someone’s favourite podcast. You don’t need 100 listeners, 1000 listeners, 10,000 listeners to be successful. […] The act of doing is the important part.” #PCTO19/end
A couple of choice quotes from @anthonymarco‘s presentation at #PCTO19: “There are two qualities to audio: Good enough and not good enough.” (If people will listen, it’s good enough.) /1
“Podcasting puts the means of production in the hands of the workers.” Cribbed from Marx, but the point is there is no barrier or gatekeepers between the makers and the end product’s distribution #PCTO19 /2
Good Q’s + comments in @anthonymarco‘s session re: Anchor. I’ve started using it for convenience and cost, but yes, you lack some control. There are other free apps out there, OSS like Audacity, Reaper, and Ardour. More complex to jump into those, though. #pcto19
I just enjoyed a wonderful and impassioned presentation by @anthonymarco on the past, present, and future of podcasting with a special emphasis on personal podcasts. He inspired me to think about doing something for myself in addition to my work assignment. #PCTO19
“Why aren’t you podcasting?” It’s never been easier to share your voice and tell your story. Dive in for the joy of creating. “You don’t need 1000 listeners to make the art of creation worthwhile.” ~ @anthonymarco#podcasting#pcto19

Podcasters that feel like they need to sound like radio is like saying “The only way music sounds good is when it sounds like a Top 40 radio hit” @anthonymarco#pcto19
Most personal podcasts don’t put any energy into promoting their podcast outside a small, nuclear group. They accept that a small, interested audience, will find them through word of mouth. The gold can’t be Googled. #pcto19
Hanging out on the second floor. Come and say hello! #pcto19
“Podcasting is more accessible now than it has ever been.” Smartphones are ubiquitous. That’s all you need to record, to tell your story. Not enough people are taking advantage of that. ~ @anthonymarco#podcasting#pcto19
I’m on my way to #pcto19 to wave the @albertapodnet flag and learn more about making, marketing and monetizing podcasts. Lots of good sessions so far, judging from the tweets.
What better time to podcast than at PodCamp? Great sitting down with John Leschinski, Chair of @podcamptoronto, for a little guerrilla podcasting action talking his work with and the journey of PodCamp Toronto.
This PodCamp Special will air tomorrow morning — only on The Let’s Talk Show podcast. #PCTO19

Whatup podcast people! Super excited to meet all of you at @podcamptoronto, learn from the tenured podcast pros out there, and even deliver an insight or two. If cost and equipment are barriers you’ve run into on your podcasting journey, or if you’re simply looking for a new way to produce high quality at low-budget, I hope to see you at my session, kicking off Day 2, 10am, Room 100, ‘So you have no money: Making Low Budget Work for You’. #PCTO19
Swung by the @podcamptoronto opening mixer on our way to tonight’s movie date, mistakenly grabbed a glass of water from an unrelated party, turns out they do some great work with low income housing, left with a tentative podcast on the books. It’s ‘Day 0’ and #PCTO19 is already a success! They even let me keep the water.
Here’s looking forward to tomorrow’s Day 1!
2nd @podcamptoronto session is going 2 b about steps of getting your website and what’s next after you register your domain. Handling Social Media and Marketing. Dealing with trolling, hate and criticism. How to decide which domain you should use and webhosting too. #PCTO#PCTO19
My second @podcamptoronto session is on Sunday @ 13:00/1pm in Room 361. It’s called “How to get started with your website” #PCTO#PCTO19
The @podcamptoronto session is all about the evil of the F word, Financial Budget. All about Budgeting for your podcast, vlogging, blogging, etc…and my co-speaker is extremely knowledgeable Hollie Pollard @commoncentsmom#PCTO#PCTO19
It ain’t a party unless it’s a #GirthRadio party. Our fave ‘un-conference’, @podcamptoronto, is back and so are we. Catch us Saturday night as we host the PodCamp Afterparty at @BettysOnKing, starting at 6PM.
Time to get down and get nerdy (but, like, the 😎kind). Don’t forget to tag us and hashtag #PCTO19. We may even repost some of what you got. You know. If we like it.
See you all there!
PodCamp schedule is out! For anyone who wants to get into podcasting and hesitated at the investment, my session: ‘So you have no money: Making Low Budget Work for You’ is one you won’t want to miss.
