Podcast review – NashvilleStandUp.com

I’ve been a subscriber for the podcast from NashvilleStandup.com, but ended it today. Here is the email I sent them:


Just wanted to say sayonara. Ive downloaded some of your shows as podcasts, and have come to the conclusion that they, well, suck. I’m 6 minutes into the 15th of october show, and so far there has not been anything worth listening to, just noise, crappy sound, internal backslapping and general boredom.

Here’s a tipoftheday for ya: Editing

Here’s another: Add some more standup jokes, and add previews to the beginning so the listener at least have something to look forward to.

Oh, and another: It is cool to actually be able to hear what people say, put on headsets so you can hear whats actually recorded, the sound on that show was just awful, the first 6 mindsplittingly bad minutes of it.

There are very few standup podcasts available, so you have very few competitors, but that doesnt give you carte blanche to do bad work. The listeners deserve better.



I hope they get their act together. I love standup, but the only other podcast I’ve got in this genre is the Tom Shillue Live Comedy Podcast, only updated once every blue moon. Please, happy podcasters out there, whip out that mike and record some more standup for me. I know you can do a better job than the Nashville standup crew.

PodcastChapterTool – Voxmedia Wiki: “Apple’s chapter system adds an entire new dimension to podcasts. For the first time, true podcast ecommerce, or pCommerce for short, is possible. Chapters add the ability to embed links and graphics displayed in sync with the podcast. Now podcasters can discuss a product or website, place a graphic representation for it on the screen and simultaneously provide a hyperlink that, when clicked, would give the podcaster credit for that clickthrough and tie in to existing e-commerce systems. Additionally all new types of podcasts are now possible: Artwork podcasts that actually show the artwork they are discussing, story-based podcasts that use the chapter art as illustrations, soundseeing tours that show pictures of what the tour guide is discussing and more.”


iTunes adds podcast directory

Oh my, this is kind of a big thing. iTunes have finally gotten around to building a podcast downloader into their fine software. This will give a big boost to the popularity of podcasting. Hats off everyone, glad to get rid of ipodder (house of wax version) og doppler.

Blabla: “Apple – iTunes – Podcasts Directory: “Try this on the Internet: Search through thousands of podcasts, find a few that really speak to you, then devise a way to collect every single episode. In minutes. Or you could just visit the iTunes Podcast Directory. Find free podcasts from everywhere, all in one place.”
