Radio Killed The Podcasting Star

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… However, with the utmost respect to Laporte, neither he nor any other podcaster has changed the radio landscape like Ariana Huffington or Matt Drudge did to newspapers with their blogs. The Huffington Post was acquired by AOL for over $300 million and is now competing with mainstream media heavyweights like the New York Times and Washington Post. OK, HuffPo was and is an exceptional business. But even its sister AOL site, the tech blog TechCrunch, sold for over $20 million and changed the tech journalism landscape with its insider reporting and subjectivity.I can’t think of a single podcast that has had that kind of impact on the radio industry. Indeed, Leo Laporte himself is having the most success not on iTunes, but on radio. According to his website, he “hosts a national radio technology talk show every Saturday and Sunday from 2-5p Eastern on over 150 stations on the Premiere Radio Networks.”A glance over the current Top Podcasts list on iTunes confirms my suspicion. It’s dominated by public radio networks (like NPR and WNYC), along with semi-celebrities who already had a following via TV or radio (like Chris Hardwick and Adam Carolla).

At least that was the theory, when professional podcasts and blogs were getting started in the 2000s. But unlike blogs, podcasts by indie voices have not gone on to seriously challenge the mainstream media incumbents. Where is the Ariana Huffington of podcasting? Can you name a political podcaster who’s had the same impact as Josh Marshall and his Talking Points Memo blog? Sadly, there are no podcasting stars – and it’s all radio’s fault.Five years ago on ReadWriteWeb, Alex Iskold wrote an article that asked: Will Podcasting Survive? Here in 2012, podcasting is clearly still alive and well. But it’s mainly thanks to established radio and TV networks like NPR and ESPN.Podcasts are audio or video shows that you can subscribe to, typically via iTunes. I’m a subscriber to several music podcasts from NPR and KEXP. NPR Music’s flagship podcast show, All Songs Considered, releases on average one show per week. It’s about 30-45 minutes long and I nearly always make time to listen to it – usually while I’m cooking, cleaning up or walking. But that’s a key issue right there: because podcasts demand all (or most) of your brain’s attention, they have struggled to make an impact in our multi-tasking culture. Budding podcast stars simply couldn’t get enough of our attention.This isn’t to say that there aren’t successful podcasters out there. In the tech world, Leo Laporte is the closest we have to a podcasting star. After starting with This Week in Tech in 2005, he went on to create a podcast network called the TWiT Netcast Network. It now has over twenty-five shows. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Make Your Financial Goals SMART and Your Savings Systematic

first_imgThis blog post by Dr. Barbara O’Neill is a part of the Military Saves campaign. Military Saves Week is February 26 – March 3. Learn more and take the pledge to save here: https://militarysaves.org/organizations/military-saves-weekDr. Barbara O’NeillBy Dr. Barbara O’Neill, Financial Management Specialist, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, boneill@njaes.rutgers.eduThere are several important reasons to save money, including peace of mind and to have cash available for emergencies. Another motivating factor is to have money to achieve financial goals (e.g., buying a new car).Setting financial goals is a lot like planning your next vacation. In order to develop goals and a travel itinerary, you need to know your starting point (Point A), destination (Point B), and the time frame and cost of the “journey.”What is your financial itinerary? Have you made specific travel plans?Start by making your financial goals “SMART” goals. SMART is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-related. In other words, financial goals should have a definite outcome and deadline and be within reach, based on your personal income and assets.When writing a SMART goal, use this format: “I plan to [describe outcome] by [date].”Example: “I plan to save $15,000 for a car in 5 years.”The more specific a financial goal, the easier it is to determine how much savings is required. You simply work backwards to break a large goal into smaller pieces.Example: $15,000 in 5 years will require $3,000 in annual savings or about $58.00 per weekly paycheck ($3,000 divided by 52).If this sounds too intimidating, simply write down where you are now and where you want to be later.Example: $100 in savings account now and $1,000 in savings account later.No matter how you write them down, goals provide a framework for investment decisions and help narrow down your choices. For example, if you have a short-term goal, like freshman year college tuition in a year or a new car purchase in three years, you’ll want to keep this money liquid so that there’s no loss of principal.Find more info at http://militarysaves.org/On the other hand, if you have a long-term goal, like college expenses for a newborn or retirement in twenty years, cash assets are a poor choice due to the risk of loss of purchasing power. Over long time frames, stocks provide the best historical return of any investment type.A financial goal everyone should have is to build an adequate emergency fund. This is savings set aside to cover unanticipated bills or monthly living expenses if paychecks stop (e.g., unemployment). Too often people use credit or borrow from family members in an emergency because they lack a savings account to fall back on.Make establishing an emergency fund a priority. Fund it with 3 to 6 months of living expenses or whatever amount provides peace of mind. When you withdraw money from this account, pay yourself back on a systematic schedule. Discipline yourself to use emergency fund money only for real emergencies (e.g., car repairs).Follow this advice from America Saves: “Set a Goal. Make a Plan. Save Automatically.”As the soundbite indicates, setting goals is just a starting point. To turn goals into action requires habits (e.g., save $100 monthly) or, better still, systems (e.g., make automated savings deposits via payroll deduction or checking to savings account transfers). Habits are ingrained behaviors that people do without thinking and systems are processes that people follow. Both habits and systems are repeatable and foster a sense of personal control.A key to savings success is goal-setting. Remember, people don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan.last_img read more

It’s not all the time easy. But, all the time, it’s important to analyse the games and not just to look at the ranking in the table.”If we analyse it since the beginning of the season, we’ve had fantastic games and performances sometimes without consistency.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

It felt like the season was over at this stage last season.”The fact Liverpool are with them now it maybe asks questions of this Man City side that we haven’t seen before.”I’m sure they’ll answer them, I’m not questioning them in that way, but I think it’s nice we have someone chasing this City side.”This City side is a special side, and I think over the next four or five years we will be speaking about a special team in this Premier League era.
