Show Me Your Mic

Show Description

The original idea for this show was to talk with other podcasters about their gear, their software and their workflow for getting their podcasts out to their listeners. And we'll still take time to do that each episode.

However after a few episodes it became apparent that podcasters enjoyed talking about the philosophies and reasons behind choosing to get into podcasting as much as they enjoyed talking gear. So like most good podcasts, Show Me Your Mic continues to evolve and adapt as the guests help decide our direction.


Chris Enns will be your guide. He's the guy who created SSKTN and has a love of podcasting - but has plenty more to learn about the craft.

Ashley Milne-Tyte, host of The Broad Experience, joins me to chat about crafting a great podcast. I really enjoyed learning how she edits a longer interview down to a 2 or 3 minute story for news bites, and also how she produces her 10-15 minute episode of The Broad Experience.

Huffduffer is a great service for podcasters and it happens to be built by one guy – Jeremy Keith. Listeners of SSKTN will know that I, Chris Enns, am a big fan of Huffduffer so I wanted to have Jeremy on to chat about Huffduffer. We talked about where the idea came from, the nerdy origins of the name and ways to help your podcast look better when it gets Huffduff’d.
