Announcement: We’ll Be Back Shortly | E017

If you downloaded this episode, you may have noticed that it’s rather short. The reason for that is I don’t have an interview this week. This will just be an announcement.

It is merely some time for me to step back for a bit and reflect on the direction of the show. I want to make this show better for you so I’m going to use the next month or so to reflect and...

This episode is a recap of Podcast Movement 2017 in Anaheim, CA. PM17 took place from August 23rd to 25th, 2017.

But on the very first day I ran into Matt Neff of the Entreneato podcast. Matt and I are both from Columbus, OH and we met a few months back at the Columbus Podcasters Meetup. It was the first time for both of us to...

Drone Piloting and Applications with Dave Agler of Double I Media | E012

On this episode I have Dave Agler of Double I Media. Dave does a range of things in multimedia, including voiceovers, video, and podcasting. But today we’re focusing on drones.

There is also a lot more involved when using drones commercially, mainly operating legally, and Dave will go into detail about these...
