Alex Tucker Podcast episode 1 worked out surprisingly well. I say “surprisingly” because I had no experience podcasting before this. I’d never hosted a podcast, recorded a podcast about marketing, or edited one together. Now that it’s live, I’m proud of to say that I made my way through each of those tasks with little error.
It’s not perfect, of course. The audio is not great quality and I apologize for that. Hopefully you’ll agree that the quality of the information is worth the less-than-ideal listening circumstances!
I met my guest, Charles Tumiotto Jackson, through Medium.com. He’s a social media marketer and writer, so we had lots to talk about in the vein of marketing and writing.
Podcasting is a little weird for me
I’m going to be honest, I suck at thinking on my feet and I dislike the sound of my own voice. So why did I start a podcast? Mostly for the opportunity to build better connections with skilled individuals such as Charles. Recording a podcast isn’t much more difficult than having a conversation if you have the right tools, and I used a browser-based software called Meetfox to host and record the call. Everything went smoothly – I only wish the audio were better.
Undoubtedly, getting clean audio will involve as much of a learning curve as anything else… I did clean it up a little bit in Adobe Audition, but I’m not very familiar with the program and there was only so much I could do.
Massive thanks to Charles
Not only was he my first guest, Charles was an excellent guest. You can check out his website here: CharlesTumiottoJackson.com Whether you want to read up on social media marketing or hire someone to handle your SMM, his blog is a good place to start.
Get the Podcast Notes from Episode 1
I took about a full page of bullet notes while listening to and editing episode 1, and you can download the PDF by clicking here. We didn’t cover too many topics, but we went pretty in depth regarding a few things so the notes make a helpful companion to the show, or even a replacement for it if you can’t find time to listen.
Thanks for reading/listening! As always, I love to hear from you on social media or in the comments here. Don’t hesitate to reach out.
