The Canadian Podcasting Awards were finally live-streamed tonight. Join Miss Elizabeth, Jason and Jim as we watch the show. There's some pretty good content at 55:45 where Jason notices a French speaking winner has no subtitles, and translates LIVE!
This video ends suddenly at the hour mark, but you can watch the continuation for a satisfying end.
I stitched these together to give you 5-in-1. These videos have been getting up to 2000 views, which is crazy for a small account with only 61 subscribers. We are watching our stats like HAWKS this January to see if our advertising plus TikTok plus a few other targeted efforts will have a noticeable impact on audience.
We also finally fixed our hosting situation, which has been a 3-month long disaster. Our first new hosting option decided to shut down just after we joined them! We are now at Zencastr, and I built a pretty sparkly website to go with it. So things are coming together.
I think we are overdue for a livestream, too. Let’s book one soon!
How has your January been? Let us know about your projects!
We are excited to announce that some big changes are afoot for our Smileton podcast! Jason and I consulted with an expert and came up with an action plan to move the enterprise forward.
We are working on a new show title and podcast graphics, and will start publishing the show on a new podcast feed as well. The Smileton universe will continue as usual, and the show format will continue with slight changes. (You've probably notice a few format experiments in the last couple of weeks!)
There are many benefits to the changes we are making, and we'd love to share these with you in a livestream coming up soon. But in the meantime, watch this progress video as I command an AI to create podcast cover art of a cute small town, in 3D cinematic hyper realistic detail, featuring bright sunshine. How cool is that?!
p.s. Nothing will change around here, except perhaps some graphic changes and maybe a name change, if that's possible. We think the show is going to be called...
