What’s Up Mevio?

On Saturday 28th January, without warning, my account with Mevio was suspended.  It was working the day before, butI was locked out and all the feeds for all my podcasts were dead.  So far, all the MP3 files remain still in-situ and anyone using my feedburner feeds will find no interruption, but I can’t add any more shows to Mevio.

By Wednesday 1st February nothing has happened. Some reports suggest they’re working on the problem, but no-one has heard a thing from the company. Their customer support has always been a joke and this is no exception.

I’ve already moved H2Z and PCP over to an alternative service (archive.org) and will move DSZ and TDZ in the next few days.

Message to Mevio: It was the best of times, now it’s the worst of times.  It’s not my fault I don’t love you any more.  You don’t ring, you don’t write.  It’s over.  I’ve found someone else.

European Podcast Award 2011: Let the judging begin!

Important day today. Got my login details as a Judge for the European Podcast Awards for 2011.  As winner of the “Personality” section for 2010, I know how this can affect the impact your podcast makes. I have to do this right.

I have 16 podcasts to listen to (4 shortlisted in each category of Personality, Business, Non-Profit and Professional) and make my recommendations, along with the other judges from such places as soundcloud and audioboo, as well as other podcasters.

Wish me luck!

Justin Wayne’s Podcast Report

Justin Wayne, one of my fellow podcasters from AMP and MIUK has written a report for his college on the future of podcasting. He’s based it on figures from a number of podcasts, including my own, and has included soundbytes from Rodrigo de Sa, from the Azores.

Both Justin and Rodrigo actively broadcast live in streamed shows, and, of course, I don’t, so we have different opionions, but it’s interesting to see what the figures show: both downloading and streaming are on the increase.  New media (if it still is “new” of course) is alive and well.

Checkout the report in full here.

Thanks for a great 2011!

I’ve just collected the download stats for the podcasts and we had an outstanding 1.83 million downloads during 2011 alone.

I was amazed by the 116% growth from 233,293 downloads in 2009 to 504,862 in 2010, but the 263% growth in 2011 to 1,834,993 downloads is absolutely amazing. I’m so honoured that so many people have taken the time to download the podcasts and spread the word to their friends.  The popularity of dubstep obviously makes a difference, with 934,805 downloads for DSZ in 2011.

Remember it’s the artists that make their music available to us podcasters that makes the podcasts this popular.  So remember to say thank you to any of the artists who’s albums you mmay have downloaded, purchased or shared with friends during 2011. They are what makes podcasting so worthwhile.

Artists: I salute you!
