ciscovoicedude whats the first piece of content you ever created?
aossey question: Do you ever find it difficult to produce material from work experiences without disclosing info you shouldn’t?
datacenterdude @aossey thats the hardest part about doing a podcast as a vendor.  All hail post-production!
aossey Josh, that leads me to my next question: what tools are you using for post-prod editing?
bwhaynes Q: What equipment, gear, apps do you use to deliver your social media snippets?
bwhaynes Q: Is there anything shameful in giving a shameful plug for your company or a valued fellow tech person?
CCIE4713 Favorite audio hardware?
datacenterdude @CCIE4713 the mic. Always the mic.
datacenterdude DONT SKIMP ON THE MIC!

CCIE4713 The voice of experience?
Guest 16 Any other panelists want to comment about how much time each person spends in total for a single audio or video podcast? For how long a podcast?
aossey Q: what services are you using to promote the content?
Guest 16 Is there a minimum run rate (a number of podcasts per month) needed to build an audience? (This is Wendell – FYI).
