With the end of the month of spooky comes a new year of the program and with that comes Ron’s Amazing Summary. The podcast first began in April of 2011, but it was not until October that I started to get the hang of things. So, for me the podcast’s birthday is always the spooky months. Here is a brief summary of the show.
Where Can You Listen to the Show?
One of the things that I am most proud of is that we have gotten the show into every major market except for Spotify and I am working on that one. You can find the show on iHeartRadio, iTunes, TuneIn Radio, Stitcher Radio, Google’s Music Play, Soundcloud, Spreaker, and many others. Thanks to the support of Jason Dowd and the folks at AMFM247.com the show is heard on the radio airwaves in nine cities accross the the nation. Every Friday night you can tune in the show at 8pm eastern time.
Are There Two Podcasts?
Yes! The main podcast is called Ron’s Amazing Stories and has over 260 episodes available. This show is the heart of soul of the project. There is however a second podcast called The Horror Express which I co-host with Jason Dowd. There are currently twelve episodes available. While this show does have its own show page. It does not have its own RSS feed. Jason and I both thought to piggyback the show on to the main podcast as it started out. If I can find a sponsor for the show it will find it’s permanent home on soundcloud. It will cost about $20.00 a month to do this. It may interest you to know that I did two other podcasts over the years that failed. They were called TSS – Flash Gordon and TSS – The Six Shooter. As I write this I can’t even remember what the TSS stood for. I think it was The Six Shooter, which was poor thinking.
Two RSS feeds – Why?
First what is an RSS feed? It stands for Rich Site Summary, which was originally called RDF Site Summary, and is most often called Really Simple Syndication. It uses a family of standard web feed formats to publish frequently updated information like blog entries, news headlines, audio or video. Ron’s Amazing Stories has two of them.
RSS feed number one is the behind the scenes workhorse. It delivers the podcast to all of the major sources. The second RSS feed is for the older generation of podcast listeners. People who use only their email to listen. This feed not only contains the podcast, but the weekly newsletter as well. To clarify, if you listen to the show from your email you are using this feed. If you want to subscribe to it head to our home page and sign-up.
That is the end of Ron’s Amazing Summary on some things I thought I wanted to clarify. If you have any questions or have an idea for a show or blog post please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for reading!
