I was listening to Kevin Smith's Keynote address at Podcast Movement 2016 and he shared the story about how his friend Bryan Johnson was ready to kill himself. Kevin told him to start a podcast, and even though he didn't really want to he did. It gave him purpose. That podcasttellem-dave-steve made Bryan feel great as he got feedback from his audience. This podcast later turned into the TV Show Comic Book Men. Another story Kevin related was of his friend Jason Mewes who Kevin had cut out of his life due to him being addicted to Heroin. Kevin talked Jason into doing a podcast called "Jay and Silent Bob Get Old" and the first few episodes Jason shared about his addiction and the podcast was focused on keeping him sober. So today "Because of my podcast I didn't kill myself and I got a TV show. Ready to start a podcast? go to

Chancellor UniversityFrom time to time I'm going to sneak in my own stories. So this one goes back years ago when I first was getting into education. I had a job interview with Chancellor University and when they saw I understood how to podcast that really peaked their interest and I got the job. The bad news is the school was in pretty bad shape and they kept restructuring. At one point they wanted to use me as a telemarketer (for admissions), and I bowed out of the company. Originally I wanted to make a podcast for students, but that never happened.

Daniel Herrick loves formula 1 racing, and he loves his brothers. Over the years life had happened so they didn't have the opportunity to get together and talk like they did when they lied under the same roof. Now they all love Formula 1 racing, so they decided to get together and create a podcast. So while podcasting is often seen as a business tool, it can be used to boost family relationships in addition to business relationships. 

Their show is the Five Lights Formula 1 Podcast.

Next week we hear from another Dan as we hear about his dream of being in the Baha 1000.

This podcast was recorded partly at Podcast Movement a few years ago (2014?).

A few years ago Major League Baseball shut down a bunch of podcasts who were using logos illegally, using the name of the teams illegally, but one of them was NOT Corey Fineran. He had named his show Ivy Envy. It was a show about the Chicago cubs. Then one day he got a direct tweet from the official Chicago Cubs team. He thought the team was coming down to shut down his podcast.

So Corey called the front office, and they mentioned that hey had heard his podcast, and read his blog where he had criticized a certain contest the Cubs were running. The Cubs representative explained how it wasn't' a Cubs rule, but one from the Major League baseball. But because of Corey of the Ivy Envy podcast, the Cubs lawyers had taken Corey's points and gone to Major League Baseball, and in turn they changed the rules. 

Your podcast can put you into a position of influence. You never know who is listening to your show. It just might be the head of a baseball team.

Click to Download Dave Jackson Director of PodcastingWelcome the the first episode of Because of My Podcast. Its a podcast where people finish the sentence, because of my podcast_____. Today you're going to hear my story. I had been podcasting for 10 years. My background is in training, and I've been helping people understand technology and software for over 20 years. The current director of podcasting for the New Media Expo had stepped down and they needed a new one.  Behind the scenes, the man (Rick Calvert) that ran the New Media Expo approached Libsyn. Libsyn is a podcast media hosting and their VP of Podcast Relations knows everybody in the space. So when Rick asked Rob who he thought might be a good fit, Rob answered, "What do you think about Dave Jackson." Rick then went to Blubrry and spoke to their CEO and asked him for some names. Todd answered, "What do you think about Dave Jackson?". Rick then went to Spreaker and spoke with Rob Greenlee. What did Rob say? You guessed it, "What do you think about Dave Jackson?' How did these podcasting companies know me? Because they all listened to my podcast. The podcast positioned me as an expert. It allowed me to show I was competent, and it also allowed me to interview all of them in the past and start building a relationship. So why start a podcast? Be seen as an expert Establish relationships
