Stephen Jondrew and Stargate Pioneer host a weekly podcast dedicated for the Hobby Podcaster with tips and tricks on how to get started, sound great, have fun and not break the bank. Each week they talk about a podcasting topic in depth within an arc (like how to start a podcast, podcast gear for the hobby podcaster, and tips on different types of presenting-announcing-hosting) and then run down a current news item of importance to podcasting. They also run down any feedback and offer advice on how to make your hobby podcasting time better, easier and more fun.

As much as everyone hopes they won't find themselves in this situation, sometimes in podcasting difficult conversations can come up and they can be hard to have productively. This week we're going to discuss how you can best handle these situations including some considerations as you approach the situation, some specific situations that often come up with podcasters, and some ways to handle these situations. Before we get there though, Stephen had a CRITICAL HARDWARE FAILURE THAT ALMOST STOPPED HIM FROM PODCASTING FOR weeks.... which means that he has a HOW I SAVED MY PODCAST story.

In the Better Podcasting Download we chat about Squadcast going through an update, Apple Podcasts categories being in effect, and a study about how audio quality has an effect on public credibility.

In the Better Podback we take listener feedback including someone who asked if we have ever dropped a podcast based on poor audio quality. Finally, Stephen and SP talk about their first experiences with the Rode Podmic (1:00:00).
