Better Podcasting #170 - Recording With Co-Hosts In The Same Room

We've often spoken about how to podcast with co-hosts remotely, but what about the situations where you're going to record in the same room together? Things can actually be a lot different (and more complex in some ways) when you're recording multiple people in the same room together. In this episode we'll discuss some best practices and share some of our experiences when recording with other people in the same room. In this week's Better Podcasting Download, we discuss the hot-off-the-presses email from Apple about the use of podcast Title Tags, and what their expectation is for these. This leads in to our take on Apple and its power within the industry. NOTE: This was recorded a few hours after Apple sent their first email and there were two emails sent after this recording. While it doesn't change our position on the majority of the discussion, it MAY SLIGHTLY change the course of action you take on your individual show.
