Listen to this podcast

Hi, welcome to Small Business Trends Radio. I'm Anita Campbell, your host, and as always, I am so glad you could join us today. We have a very special show today. It's called "From Hobby to Business-Lessons of a Radio Show." And my guest today is actually my business partner on the radio show, executive producer and sometimes guest host, Steve Rucinski. Welcome Steve!

Great to be here, Anita.

Well listen, today we're going to be sharing our lessons learned from our first year, or almost first year with Small Business Trends Radio, and how it went from a home-grown podcast to a radio show. And more than just sharing some war stories, but there will be a few of those, we're actually going to give lessons learned. And Steve and I have been wanting to do a show like this for a while, so the opportunity presented itself, and we said, let's grab it and you know, let's share some of the lessons that we've learned over this journey since late 2004.

And then I attended a CIO event locally here in northeast Ohio, in I believe in October 2004, and Anita happened to be sitting with me and at that event, they had a door prize, and I won an iPod. Well naturally then that got me into iPod and iPod sites, and through those different iPod sites, I discovered Adam Curry, who some people call the Podfather, or the father of podcasting. Our listeners may be of the age, or have children of the age, they remember Adam Curry was a Vjay on MTV in the 1980s, he's owned several different businesses and kind of an entrepreneur and he took and helped sort of create this idea of podcasting, recording audio and allowing it to be distributed on the Internet. So not long after that, I met with Anita and said I'd had this learning about audio files and maybe we should think about doing...
