My Test Podcast episode

Busy Mom’s Survival Guide Podcast Episode 000.
This is just a test podcast recording for me to practice podcasting. It is mostly me babbling and practicing all the knobs on my new podcast equipment.

    You said you want us “to listen” and “to enjoy”! 🙂 (And we will do just that!) Looking forward to your new podcasts, PJ!

  • anne conover

    That was great PJ! Look forward to many more podcasts. You’ll be a pro in no time!

  • You sound great! You should keep that as the name of your show… I don’t even remember the name of my show. I like your voice.

  • “I don’t even remember the name of my podcast” So funny. Good luck on your new venture.

  • Joan

    You are going to figure out what all of those knobs are for!

    Yet another example of the GMS gang putting a smile on their customer’s face…your podcasts will be fun!

    I loved it 🙂 I didn’t think you were too quiet when you turned your mic up… And I agree that you should name it “I don’t even remember the name of my podcast” lol!

    Voices sounds clear. The background music seems too loud. Cant wait to listen to the 1st episode 🙂

  • juliet

    You saying you don’t even remember your name of the podcast was hilarious.

  • Sherri

    Listened & enjoyed!! Great job!

  • John

    So did we remember what the name of the podcast was, and the other piece of music sounded like the first :P. The smell of my soaps in the bathroom down the hall brought the podcast to life. LOL

  • Secrena

    Those darn’ll get them down! Good Luck!

  • Jess

    Loved how the knobs were confusing you! You’ll get them figured out sooner or later. Maybe. ;+) good luck!

  • Kathryn Breighner

    What fun this new experience will be! Isn’t it great to learn new things?

  • Jessica B.

    This sounds exactly like a radio show; I love it! I think you did a great job with the levels in terms of talking and music, and it sounds like you do have a great teacher. 🙂

  • Melissa Woods

    I loved it!!! I laughed outloud when you said you didn’t remember the name of it. So funny. 🙂

  • Lora Grisafe

    Fun! I like the music you selected too. I’ll be downloading your future “I don’t even remember the name of my podcast.” shows…heehee

  • Pam

    I love that you enjoy the learning part of all this. I think you send out a strong message to everyone when you are able to say “I don’t even remember the name of my podcast” and how you had a good teacher…taking chances, making mistakes, learning from them and having someone to help you along the way. I like that you turned it up because you “don’t like to yell” and you want to talk in your normal voice. Looking forward to hearing more about your experiences in podcasting.

  • Cristy

    How do you fit it all in?! I thought your voice was clear and easy to understand.

  • Jen

    “Until next time…And that’s about it.” Your Phone # came and went so quickly-sorry didn’t catch it. But I can go to the website. :0) You guys sounded great – crisp and clear! So…until next time…keep milking those goats!

  • Sherry

    Sounds great. Speaking of volume, I neeed to find the volume control on our new laptop!

  • Nicole

    This sounded great! Can’t wait to listen regularly! Love GMS and can’t wait to start using it on our baby due in a little over two weeks!

  • Jennifer Navarro

    “I don’t even remember the name of my podcast..”. LoL!

  • Margie Averhart

    “I don’t even remember what the name of my podcast is” Good Luck with your podcast…

  • Whittney

    I love it! And that you couldn’t remember the name of the podcast made me laugh!! So excited for the first “real” podcast to go up!

  • How cool! My son did this when he was in high school, wow, 6 years ago. His was about indie bands. I love your soaps and lotion sticks and lip balms!!

  • Melissa

    You made me chuckles that you don’t remember the name of your podcast! GREAT job! You will certainly be someone I look forward to listening to!

  • Amanda Rossman

    I like that you were pretending that you had another piece of music to play and then played real music-I was expecting imaginary music 🙂

  • Heather Russ

    “Welcome to another episode, or actually it’s the first episode, of I don’t even remember what the name of my podcast is!” Too cute:-)

  • Ammie Barbee

    I left a post earlier but I can’t find it now so I will leave another. Loved the podcast (my first one to actually listen to). It was nice to hear you being “real” when you couldn’t remember the title of the show. What is it actually? Your voice level sounded great though I can relate with my kids thinking I am yelling.

  • Karen

    ”I don’t even remember what the name of my podcast is!” Ha, that would be me, forgetting the first thing I had to say!

  • Julie

    Looking forward to the rest of your future podcasts. I didn’t think you were yelling.
