Ryan from RyansTopShelf.com calls in to ask a question about whether it is common courtesy to pay someone if you feature them in a webinar or a product you make, in exchange for them agreeing to be on your show.
I respond by talking about the different ways you can offer value to your guests, including (but not limited to) promoting their products, having a joint venture arrangement and providing them with free content in the form of articles or videos.
The take home message is – Offer them value in exchange for the value they are providing for you.
Chris Deals calls in to ask a question about how to podcast on a budget. He listened to a past episode where I showed my brand new Podcasting Studio and recommended for me to talk about how someone can get started if they can't afford to start on such a grand scale.

I talk about why I decided to get such an elaborate setup. The main reason is that it allows me to deliver a high quality podcast VERY quickly.
To answer his question specifically, I make the following recommendations for the beginner Podcaster:
Recommendation #1 – Use a USB headset. Here are two great examples of all-in-one solutions:
The Plantronics Audio 655 USB Multimedia Headset
If you are a podcaster on the go, here's a great portable Solution:
For those that want to go with a slightly more elaborate setup, I would recommend a USB microphone (with a separate headset). The one I've used for over a year now is called the Rode Podcaster. It's great Mic that delivers a pretty good quality. However, the price point is $229.
I then get into the main content for this episode, where I share how I've been using Youtube to drive traffic to my Biology Website. I've been able to grow the traffic from 2,672 Unique Visitors in December to 7,507 in the last 30 Days.
Here are the things I've been doing that I share in the episode:
What I Recommend:
You can check out my Biology Youtube Channel to see how I implement those things.
That's pretty much it. Hope you enjoy the content of this episode. Leave me your feedback in the Comments below and by calling the hotline at (888) 835 – 2414.
