Why I Renamed Inside The Studio Of The Podcaster To The Podcasting Gear Show.
Initially when I was conceptualizing and planning this show, I wanted to call it Inside the Podcaster’s Studio; you know like, James Lipton’s Inside the Actors Studio show. I ran it by a great friend of mine Wayne Henderson from Media Voice Overs Dot Com. He told me that Ray Ortega had a show called “The Podcasters Studio” and suggested changing it. We played with it, and I settled on Inside the Studio of the Podcaster, a bit long for a podcast name, but it had the same intent as the original thought.
Last, week Dave Jackson called me out on his School of Podcasting Show, ribbing me that the title was STILL too similar. I could have taken offense at that, but when someone who has been podcasting as long as Dave has says something, I need to step back and consider it.
And you know what? He was right. It still was too similar to Ray Ortega’s show. My content was different, more niche, but title was too similar.
Hence, the Podcasting Gear Show was born. I did my homework this time. No one in iTunes has a title like this one. For you listeners, nothing changes. The URL is the same, the feed is the same; its just a name change. Besides, now there is absolutely no question what the show is about.
