2020 Presidential Candidates’ Podcasts

Presidential Candidates blog

Podcasting has made it all the way to the top…the president! Both former and current presidents and presidential candidates are sharing their messages and stories in podcast format.

As the 2020 presidential race heats up, Podbean has put together a list of podcasts from the current presidential candidates. We pulled what we could find from the notable declared candidates, but if you know of others we invite you to contact us to add them to the list. Not all the podcasts are current, so we’ve listed the last episode date for those. We also included a few non-official podcasts covering the specific candidates.

We hope to see more presidential candidates share their messages via podcast, and updating their podcasts from the campaign trail. Of course, you can also find the presidential candidates being interviewed regularly on a wide range of podcasts and tune into podcasts covering the campaigns and elections. We’ll share a future topic with some of those podcast recommendations.

You can find this topic featured in the Podbean app to listen on the go. If you don’t already have the Podbean app, download it for free in the App Store or Google Play store. It’s the best way to listen and discover new podcasts you’ll love, with recommendations of hot topics plus personalized recommendations based on what you listen to most. You can also listen to these podcasts online here.

Corporate Training Podcast- 5 Ways To Make It Work For You

You’ve got a fantastic tool – a podcast for corporate training. Even with this modern medium, there are ways to pump up your training materials and make sure they’re heard by everyone who needs to hear it. Here are five ways to make your podcast work harder for you.

1. Use what you’ve got on hand.

Training isn’t new in the corporate setting.  There’s always a seminar to attend, a conference to fly to, internal panels or forums to participate in.  And with the way life goes, you’re always going to have a team member that gets sick, or can’t go, or has an appointment that means they can’t attend or participate.  

That doesn’t mean your information and corporate training have to go from a full-tilt to a screeching halt.

Podcasts are ready-made for consumption on the go and on-demand, and it takes no work at all to turn recordings of corporate training, seminars, and internal panels/forms into podcast episodes.  So not only will the information you need to spread exist in a form the attendees can access and check, it allows your traveling team members to access corporate training materials they wouldn’t have been able to before.

2. Use a secure log-in feature.

Security should always be your first major concern.  You’re using a media format that is widely accessible, but the last thing you want is Joe Somebody listening to your company’s podcast.  But you’ve already got a trusted security company handling your log-ins and technology – how can that work with your podcast?

With SSO (Single Sign-On) login service, incorporate the sign-in service you already use into your corporate training podcast.  Let your team members use the same email and password they use for work, and know that your content sits secure and accessible while cutting down on password-juggling.  

3. Let your team members submit content.

As much as you want to do everything yourself, sometimes a little help from the group can go a long way – especially when it comes to something as expansive as a communications podcast.  Why not let a few members of your team submit content to your corporate training podcast?

With the tiered admins, delegate roles to your podcast team.  Let your contributors submit their content while channel admins approve it for publication or dole out some edits.  Let your admin oversee and manage all your channels (second only to you as the corporate admin). With everyone chipping in and making it a group effort, your corporate training podcast functions as more than just a training tool: it’s a collaborative effort that has your team working together to improve how everyone learns.

4. Set groups and organize podcast access.

You’ve got a large team with multiple branches.  The training that applies to your design team won’t benefit your marketing team.  And trying to sort accessibility by individual names can be arduous and is just asking for a mix-up to happen.

Look no further than the handy Groups feature!  Sort your team members into groups, and set access to your corporate training podcast in batches instead of by name.  Want your head of marketing to have access to both the marketing podcast and the design podcast? Members can be part of multiple groups as easily as they’re part of one – no extra hassle to put their names in multiple places or have multiple points of access.  

5. Use engagement intel to analyze participation with your content.

So you’ve made you podcast, you’ve got your team members securely signed in and listening to their selected podcasts, you’ve got them submitting content for your approval (or the approval of someone you’ve chosen to approve these sorts of things!), and now you’re wondering what to do next.  Your podcast is out in the world – what do you do?

Monitor how your team members engage with it, that’s what!

With the comprehensive engagement analytics, see how your team members interact with your corporate training podcast.  Where they pause, where they rewind, what section they replay. Get an insight as to who’s listening for how long, and what material gets more attention.  This is your chance to fine-tune your podcast, to make targeted changes and improvements, and cater to the attention and learning style of your team members.

Your corporate training podcast is already the best tool in your shop when it comes to long-distance and on-the-go learning.  But with this list, you can fine-tune and sharpen that tool to make it even better.

Podcasts for Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness blog

May is Mental Health Awareness Month (also known as Mental Health Month), celebrated in the U.S. since 1949. One in five people will be affected by mental illness in their lifetime. Each year this designated month serves as a special way to educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.

This year, Mental Health Month continues to focus on the previous year’s theme of #4Mind4Body, but expands to explore the topics of animal companionship, spirituality, humor, work-life balance, recreation and social connections as ways to boost mental health and general wellness. Some of the key messages are:

  • Mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and wellbeing, and mental illnesses are common and treatable.
  • A healthy lifestyle can help to prevent the onset or worsening of mental health conditions, as well as chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. It can also help people recover from these conditions.
  • Humor, spirituality, recreation, animal companionship, and work-life balance are important for everyone but may be of special importance to people also living with chronic health conditions and those who care for them.

Podcasts offer insightful stories about mental illness, resources for mental health, and outlets for humor, meditation and balance. Many Podbean listeners (and podcasters) share how much podcasts have helped them with mental health struggles. They might use podcasts to help relax before bed or calm anxiety. Hearing others’ stories helps people dealing with mental illness feel less alone. Podcasters have often found an outlet for creativity and a sense of community through podcasting as well.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we’ve put together a special topic in the Podbean app and have listed some of our top choices below.

If you don’t already have the Podbean app, download it for free in the app store or the Google Play store. It’s the best way to listen and discover new podcasts you’ll love, with recommendations of hot topics plus personalized recommendations based on what you listen to most.

Podbean Unveils Enhanced Audio Recorder and Editing Features in its App

audio recorder app

The Podbean Podcasting App’s Audio Recorder Function Offers a Range of New Effects and Post-Production Tools

Wilmington, DE – January 24, 2019– The Podbean app features an audio recorder function, allowing podcasters to record and publish audio podcasts right from their iPhone or Android devices. The newly-released version of the app provides a robust suite of recording and editing features for the podcaster to create even better audio.

The latest version of the Podbean audio recorder provides a rich library of free background music in various styles and moods that podcasters can use in their recordings. It also offers special effect sounds, tone adjustment, and echo effects to mimic different surroundings. After recording, podcasters can use the editing features to cut the audio, merge two recordings or split recordings. Podcasters can also import background music and other audio files, as well as export their recorded audio to easily use other professional editing tools or repurpose content.

“As we all do more on our mobile phones, we’re encountering more podcasters who want to be able to record and publish on the go,” said David Xu, Podbean’s CEO. “We released the audio recorder in the app in 2016 and have continued working to make it more functional for podcasters producing mobile audio. This is the first in a series of upgrades to the recording and post-production features in the Podbean app.”

For an overview of features, visit Podbean’s audio recorder page. You can download the Podbean app free from the App Store or Google Play. Podbean is seeking feedback to continue improving and enhancing the audio recorder for podcasters. Contact Podbean Support to provide feedback or get help.

Podcasting for Non-Profit Organizations

non profit organization podcasts

Podcasting can be a wonderful communications solution for non-profit and cause-based organizations. Some non-profit organizations use a podcast to communicate advocacy information to members/supporters. Others may repurpose educational and informational content to reach a wider audience. The audio format is a great way to increase engagement and spread your organization’s message further.

We’ll be sharing feedback and case studies from a few Podbean users podcasting for non-profit organizations. We hope they’ll provide specific ideas and lots of inspiration.

Podcasting for Non-Profit Organizations: A Case Study in Expanding Engagement

Michelle Mittelstadt, Director of Communications for the Migration Policy Institute and MPI Europe, shares her organization’s experience of podcasting with Podbean:

1. Why did your non-profit organization decide to start podcasting?

Podcasting represents a great ability to project beyond our geographic boundaries for our events and webinars. We see podcasting as a quick-form and effective way of engaging with audiences, at a time and place of their choosing. It seems like more and more organizations have been getting into the podcasting space.

2. What is your primary objective with podcasting?

Sharing our knowledge with new audiences, in ways that work for them.

3. What benefits has your non-profit organization experienced from podcasting?

Podcasting has significantly amplified our reach, and represents an effective way of identifying new audiences.

4. Has Podbean been a good platform for hosting your podcast? How has the process been to create and manage your podcast using Podbean?

The platform is an easy-to-use, intuitive one.

5. Have you run across any challenges? Do you have future goals for podcasting for your organization?

We’ve to date used podcasting chiefly to present our events and webinars. Soon, we’ll be adding expert interviews.

The Migration Policy Institute Podcasts can be found on Podbean.

Non-profit organizations benefit from having a strong communications strategy, to interact with supporters and donors, educate consumers and raise awareness. Podcasting for non-profit organizations is an engaging solution to enhance your communications plan.
