Stan The Man Talks Podcasting

TPN’s Stan Relihan (The Connections Show) was interviewed by IT Wire recently about his thoughts on the future of podcasting.

According to Relihan, putting the iPhone in the hands of senior executives will be an explosive mixture that has never happened before and will take the adoption of podcasting to a new level.

“Now that the iPhone has been launched globally with multiple carriers, it’s going to get major penetration. What that does is that there are many managing directors and senior executives in organisations that would probably never have an iPod but would get an iPhone for all its other functions, which automatically puts an iPod in their pockets,” says Relihan.

G’Day World #336 – The Sammartino Method (aka How To Get Rich Slowly and Surely)

Steve Sammartino is not only the founder of Rentoid.com (see G’Day World #306), he’s also one of the smartest money managers that I’ve ever met.

By age 33, Steve had built up a big enough share portfolio to be able to quit his corporate marketing job and live completely on the dividends. That was two years ago. Today, he tells me how he did it – and how you can do it to. Steve’s system is foolproof and doesn’t require you to know anything about shares or companies or the market. He calls it a “set and forget” system. I call it “The Sammartino Method” and I think we should all listen to this show over and over again. Then we should play it to our kids. Steve’s system is so simple and basic that everyone can do it. As he says in the show “All it takes is discipline.”

If you aren’t financially independent (and I’m not), then you can’t ever really be in control of your lifestyle. Steve will never have to work another day in his life if he doesn’t want to. Imagine the choices you would have in your life if you were in that situation in ten years.

The two books that Steve recommends you read are:

G’Day World #335 – Mercy Ministries Survivor “Vickie”

Today’s show is a continuation of the examination I’ve been doing around the relationship and practices of Gloria Jean’s Coffee, Hillsong Church and Mercy Ministries. Today’s guest is a former resident of Mercy Ministries in the United States. She spent 7 months inside Mercy about 8 years ago and is still today too frightened of them to use her real name, so she is using the alias “Vickie Lucas”. Vickie tells me about how she entered Mercy trying to find help for her bulimia nervosa condition but instead of psychological and clinical treatment, she was subjected to exorcisms, neglect and emotional abuse. She talks about how she was chastised in public by Mercy founder Nancy Alcorn, who claims to be a lifelong celibate, for getting her haircut – apparently according to Mercy that’s a clear sign she is possessed by demons making her into a lesbian.

The quotes contained in this show by Nancy Alcorn and Peter Irvine are taken from this video by The Cynic Sage.

G’Day World #334 – Leo Sayer

Leo Sayer

In 1980, at age ten, I bought my very first LP record – “Living In A Fantasy” by Leo Sayer. I listened to it constantly – 20 years later I bought it on CD and today it’s always on my iPod. Leo has had several Number One hits around the world, “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing” (a U.S. Grammy winner for the year’s best Rhythm and Blues Song), the romantic ballad, “When I Need You” (1977), which reached number one in both the UK and U.S.

He also had remakes of Bobby Vee’s “More Than I Can Say” (his fourth UK number 2 hit, and in the U.S., number 2 pop and number one in the adult contemporary chart), and Buddy Holly’s “Raining In My Heart” (1979) and “Orchard Road” in 1983. In the U.S., three of his singles – “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing” (1977), “When I Need You,” (1977) and “More Than I Can Say” (1980) – were certified gold.

This morning he chatted with me for an hour from the city he now calls home – Sydney, Australia.

Check out his official site, LeoSayer.com, for updates on his touring schedule and to read his blog updates.

Buy his new album “Don’t Wait Until Tomorrow” and “Living In A Fantasy” from iTunes:
