Stephen Jondrew is a man of many talents much boredom. Stephen often fills his spare time co-hosting and producing several podcasts, maintaining/administrating a variety of websites and yet somehow he also keeps a full-time day job and even has a wife and son.

Stephen enjoys all things geeky including tech, comics, sci-fi, podcasting and a bunch of stuff in between.

OsX vs Windows? Windows... for now. Star Trek vs Star Wars? Star Trek, every time.

SP as he is known to his close associates has dedicated his life to working within the system to bring geeky humor and science fiction points of view to the mindless minions in charge of providing the freedoms, security and infrastructure to our lives. Given the opportunity, SP would gladly slip through the Stargate to begin colonizing a new planet and living the Little House On The Prairie life or suit up to mine the solar system's asteroids for precious metals, gems and hidden signs of ancient advanced societies. SP has a lifelong fascination with geeky shows, advanced technologies, revolutionary science and apocalyptic tales.

Better Podcasting – Episode 016 – Video Podcasting: The Better Podcasting Method

Welcome to Better Podcasting! We talk about podcast tips, tools and best practices to help you succeed with your podcast! Just like you we podcast purely out of the love and the fun of it. Podcasting is our hobby and we love that it is yours too! We always encourage your questions and feedback and you can find all of our contact information at betterpodcasting.com.

Stephen and SP take this episode to run down how they are able to put together high level video productions on the hobby podcasts of Better Podcasting and GonnaGeek using multi sessions of Skype, overlays and the XSplit program. They break down the hardware required, some of the software options available, how they arrived at their solution that they are currently using, what are some of the ways to manage some of the pitfalls (i.e. digital drift and syncing both audio and video), and how to stitch it all together to get a great produced product while keeping it at a level that hopefully everyone can follow.

This week’s Better podcasting Download runs down the drop in NPR radio under 55 years old statistics and what it might mean for podcasting. SP also runs down why podcasting is better to listen to for him versus the radio.

In this week’s PodBack SP and Stephen run down some lengthy YouTube feedback from Brain Hurley on options for webhosting for your website, and some specifications to watch out for as you are choosing your webhosting company. Stephen recommends checking out WebHostingTalk while you are on your way to decide where you want to place your webhost, and SP strongly recommends grabbing your podcast domain and at least point it somewhere as you start your podcast journey.

Avatar ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Stephen is a west coast Canadian who enjoys pretty much all things geeky. Whether it's podcasting, playing with tech or just watching a great re-run of Star Trek, Stephen is probably interested in it. GonnaGeek is the brain child of Stephen. You see, for years he has helped run a variety of specific genre websites (such as comics, Star Trek, etc) but sometimes he found himself needing to talk more than just comics... that's why he created GonnaGeek. Stephen is currently the Producer, Editor and a Co-Host of the Official GonnaGeek.com Show (www.gonnageek.com/show/) and Better Podcasting (www.betterpodcasting.com). He also runs www.thepodcastforum.com
