Another factor: sometimes I think Jocelyn is a bit worn out on making the podcasts. And she's the real driving force.

Maybe if more of us would 'Like' the podcasts on our FB our network of contacts would listen to them.

I enjoy the podcasts very much.
I must still be part kid because I think it's cool when you say "fuck" and "shit".
It's hardcore permaculture (like hardcore rap except less guns and killing).
almost all the rest of the podcasts speak in monotone voices andDRONE on and on. s o yeah maybe its been said before paul, but they are yawners. you make me want to jump in the dirt!
i dont know how to do it but you should try to get on the top banner at itunes.
it only gets abt 6 miles to the gallon
how do we or can we still sign up for sepp holzers pdc classes in missoula montana?
" If I had even one podcast that had more than 10,000 downloads, I would feel a bit more comfortable approaching big players (that I don't already know) for an interview. Currently, my most popular podcast hasn't even been downloaded 2,000 times."
Well one thing that came up several times in various marketting courses was that people who are hot shots in an area are generally delighted and very receptive to being asked for interviews. They are as eager as you are to get their message out. You have a big audience here even if it isn't 10,000 and possibly your audience would complement their audience and both would benefit?
Besides, you don't have to belabour the fact that your podcasts haven't been downloaded as often as you would like. You DO have an audience here.
i have beenhesitant to get involved in the forums because i thought that whatever i posted would just sit around in cyberspace and noone would ever really pay much attention unless i got really lucky
they seem to just want to talk about their farm animals and ohhh theyre so cute
i would get in touch with this super funny musician named josh gardner
i will write adam carrolla and tell him about you and how he should interview you.
Hey Paul, I just wanted to offer you some words of encouragement because I heard your dissatisfaction with those that said they were going to help out promoting your podcasts. I knowhow you felt/ feel because i was a manager of a csa for 3 years. I Went through a lot of the same stuff. I find you very entertaining and would be happy to pay for YOUR podcasts. Have you ever heard this guy at thepermaculturepodcast.com? YOU and Jocelyn are way better at presentation of this material!
Thank you so much and I think you should tell people how to make a link to the forum. I for one am not always successful ingetting the link to be blue.

There is another forum (to remain nameless) that has good stuff but I don't listen to it because there is too much political stuff thrown in it.
If I wanted to listen to political stuff I would turn on the TV or something. Lots of people love that stuff but I don't.
I like your podcasts and this forum because it sticks to actual hands on stuff that we can do to improve our lives.
And someone mentioned the monotone thing - Don't really want to make your head any bigger but you do have a good voice to listen to. You have the ability to change tone, and emotion - preachy, understanding, humerous, playful, angry and neutral. That talent is hard to come by. Makes it interesting to listen to.
That said, there are some folks with a big following that you could plug into, such as Get Rich Slowly, where your video on lowering your heating bill by only heating yourself could be written up. JD is looking for readers to write in all the time.
And there's Dave's Garden, which has good articles by readers. Surely you could be making some money selling articles. I do.
Paul - After spending hours really delving into the innards of this forum, I now see that you are doing a ton of stuff already to make it grow. I am impressed. How do you keep up with it all? Thanks for keeping it going.
