Podcast #3 – Hygiene discussion

Based on previous posts to establish be basics of a podcast, we now have all things setup.

Now it’s time for a real hygiene related discussion. It is lead by one of our FSC account manager Vicki Baines from SCA UK acting moderator in discussion with title “The future of the facility service and cleaning industry”.

Please note the content is served from Amazon S3, acting storage location for the video reference. The player below will play content from there.

In the next post we will make a slight alteration in that the blogpost will incorporate a Youtube player with the content combined with the iTunes podcast download link still pointing to Amazon S3. This way we will consume Amazon cycles only from downloads and Youtube will handle the web-play for those users viewing the on the web.

Podcast #2 – continue the podcast journey

As a podcast is about communicating with an audience based on a subscription model (hopefully not a one-off), this is now the next podcast episode.

As on the first post, it contains a small voice recording and a description.

Going forward, the voice recording will be the true recording of my business content and the textual description (this body text) will be the show notes from the conversation aimed at the potential listener to grasp what the podcast episode is about.


To be continues in the next episode, this time with full video content…

Podcast #1 – Establish a podcast

I have for long been listening to podcasts, both with voice & video and am now dependent on the convenience of being able to consume content at various places such as in the car, while vacuum cleaning etc.

Now that our business (in one area) wanted to publish from scratch, came the questions how you actually do it.

The prime scene is to be able to syndicate your content to Apple’s iTunes due to the established audience there.

The requirements are rather simple from the look at it:

  • Put your content at a public location (supporting byte range support)
  • Create a compliant RSS do point to your content ( )
  • Request a podcast from iTunes and wait for approval

From there on, keep updating your RSS stream and point to new & updated content.

This post represent content in terms of text & voice media. It is referenced by a RSS stream pointing to it’s location, in this case my WordPress blog.
