06 – Nordic Skiing: Getting Started skating on snow

In this episode, I talk about my experiences getting started Nordic Skiing.  I recorded this episode in my car on the way to a friend’s place in Iowa using the standard issue headphones that come with the iPhone 5s.

During the episode, I discuss the book that really inspired me checking out cross-country skiing in the first place:  Younger Next Year by Chris Crowley and Henry Lodge. 

Enjoy!


05 – Minisode:  A short re-introduction to the Getting Started Podcast

05 – Minisode: A short re-introduction to the Getting Started Podcast

Okay, okay…it’s been over a year since I “finally got back to recording podcasts” as the title of the November 24, 2014 episode says.  Looking back on that makes me laugh a bit.  Oh, how great my intentions were!  Well, here I am getting started again.

Since it has been so long since recording an episode here, I thought I would do a short “minisode” re-introducing the podcast.  And it is indeed short – just about 7 minutes.  Hopefully this really is the beginning of something that sticks this time.

Thanks for listening!

Note:

This is an interview format podcast I did with my older brother Bob in the spring of 2015.  So, the relative time references are no longer accurate.  However, I enjoyed doing the interview with him and making the episode, so I am keeping this one in the archives.   ( JGP – 01/28/16 )


Do you golf?  If so, do you want to improve your game?  Of course you do!!  All golfers want to improve their game.  And this is the perfect podcast for you to learn about a local Chippewa Valley resource that can help you do just that.

In this episode, I interview my brother Bob Pecor, and we talk about the golf coaching that he will be doing this year through his new Strike The Ball Golf coaching program.  Bob provides a peek into his motivation for starting Strike The Ball Golf and shares details about his coaching philosophy, what he will be offering, and the approach he will be taking with his students.

Bob’s coaching will be offered at Princeton Valley Golf Course in Eau Claire, WI.   Click here to read more details about his coaching program.

03 – Finally… Jason gets back to recording podcasts!

Wow!   It has been a long time since my last episode, and I am FINALLY getting back behind the microphone again.  Here is what you will find deep in the auditory goodness of this short new episode:

Website

I provide a short introduction and overview to the gettingstartedpodcast.com website  where I talk about:

  • the graphic design help you can get from fiverr.com
  • a brief description of the Divi them from Elegantthemes.com
  • and SO MUCH MORE!!   Wait, that’s about it regarding the website, actually.

Ideas for Developing the Getting Started Podcast idea

I share some of the thoughts that I have had regarding how this particular podcast can grow beyond the chronicles of my podcast set-up experience.  Even I am getting bored with that story…   I started thinking that lot’s of people are getting started with something be it a new hobby, a different job, starting a business, an exercise program…anything!  This could be a podcast that focuses on local resources for newbies looking to start activities from Aardvark Watching to Zoo Keeping.

Perils of the Home Studio

Finally, I talk a bit about my home studio transitions from the extra bedroom, to the office, back to the extra bedroom, and final banishment to the basement.   Such are the perils of the home studio.

That’s all for this episode, folks!  Thanks for stopping by to catch-up on what I am doing, and thanks for listening!

In this episode I talk about some production and studio upgrades that I have made in the recent couple of weeks including:

I spend a few minutes talking about my initial impressions of the microphone and share thoughts about the music I selected.

In addition, I share a short teaser regarding a new potential project to help someone else get their podcast up and going.
