Guest Post by Russell Sherrard: A Podcast Is Born!

I was first introduced to creating a podcast for various things. I listen/watch a tech show on the weekend and the host mentioned an app called Anchor.fm. I went to Anchor to check it out.

A few of Anchor’s best features:

UNLIMITED FREE HOSTING → We don’t believe in charging creators to make or store their content. No storage limits, no trial period, no catch. 

This is one of the main reasons that I went with Anchor
ONE-CLICK DISTRIBUTION → 

Make your podcast available everywhere people listen (including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify), with just one click. 

This is another reason I went with Anchor.MONETIZE YOUR PODCAST → Get paid for your plays by beloved brands we’ll match with your show, or collect monthly payments from your listeners. Or both! 

This is a good feature that I don’t have to worry about.

It is taken care of for me

PODCAST WITH FRIENDS → 

Record with guests or cohosts anywhere in the world, or collect voice messages from your listeners to include in your episodes. 

This feature only works on “compatible” smart phones. I was told when I downloaded the app that my phone was incompatible. Not only that this feature only works on compatible phones.

STRAIGHTFORWARD ANALYTICS → See at a glance how your podcast episodes are doing over time, so you can understand and grow your audience. 

Good feature. Easy to read.

RECORD FROM ANYWHERE → Anchor’s mobile apps, iPad app, and desktop platform make it easy to capture audio anywhere, anytime. 

Again, does not work on incompatible phones.

I found an alternative. Use freeconferencecall.com Works better than the app and your recording can be up to 6 hours in length. 

Despite some shortcomings of the app I decided to create my own podcast. It is called Ask the Author Podcast.

Listen to the NEW Ask the Author Podcast.This podcast conducts candid and insightful interviews with Christian Independent Authors. Ever wanted to know what your favorite authors favorite food is?
