Podcast Review

This week’s Podcast Review is about the WebmasterRadio.fm

Description: This week’s review isn’t just about a Podcast but a whole internet radio station of Podcasts. Small business or large, web fluent or rookie, this radio network of Podcasts is THE source for all things web.

Technology, sure, but that is not all. Advertising, business models and more are covered. If it has an Internet topic connection your will find the topic here.

Comments: Great production values, (the ads are sometimes kind of corny) sound, hosts and guests are all first rate on most of the shows available. The width of topics covered is quite staggering here is a small sampling:

– The Daily SearchCast hosted by Danny Sullivan, Editor of Search Engine Land and guests Co-Hosts
– The Hook with Katie Kempner, The intersection of Advertising & PR
– ad:tech Connect hosted by Special Guest ad:tech luminaries
– Next Stuff Now hosted by Chris Tolles, VP of Topix.net
– Domain Master with Monte Cahn of Moniker.com
– RainMaker hosted by SEGuru (Daron Babin) and Brandy Shapiro-Babin
– SEO RockStars with hosts: Todd (Oilman) Friesen and Greg Boser aka Webguerrilla
– Cover Story with Brandy Shapiro-Babin, David McInnis of PRWeb

Remember this is Internet radio so the site does a nice job at letting you listen easily and connect at the best speed for your individual connection. This also means that there is content playing on the website 24/7.

Pluses: The big plus is the volume of content presented by some of the top leaders in the Internet industry. I also like that the audio is coming at me continuously, I can just listen like a traditional radio station.

Minuses: I found it hard to actually figure out how to download a show. I think you hit the yellow ‘i’ button and then click on the ‘request’ window in the pop-up that opens.

The ‘Buy’ button on the home page is confusing because it takes you to an Amazon page listing several CDs for sale but they seem to have nothing to do with the show listed or webmasteradio.fm. Confusing?

To find the RSS subscribe button click on the ‘Archives’ button in the right side column.

Recommendation: If you can get past the user interface you will discover a wealth of great information that is well worth your time investment. Check out WebmasterRadio.fm

    Agree, easy lisenting… the confusion is a real turn-off.
