Today on The Rise To The Top: The #1 Show For Mediapreneurs: The Podcast Answer Man, Cliff Ravenscraft, is in the house for a spirited conversation (to say the least)! We have a big time discussion on whether the term “podcast” sucks, and whether it is better to create/consume AUDIO podcasts or VIDEO podcasts and much more. Feel free to hop in below in the comments.
I use RISE partner Wistia for video hosting because they rock. Check ’em out.
