As someone who has been helping people understand technology for over 20 years, I'm here to say words matter. Today I help you understand two confusing terms floating around the podcasting space so you can stop confusing your audience.
Show notes is a phrase I'm going to swap out for "Episode Description." We know what a show is. We know what notes are, but your listener may not understand what it means when you put them together. Podcasters created this phrase, and most podcasters understand the phrase. Listeners may be a bit confused. If you add a little more clarity, they may avoid being confused. By calling the description of your episode the "Episode Description" may lead to less confusion.
Youtube launched a "feature" to turn your YouTube playlist into a "Podcast." To this, I say, Just because there is a mouse in the cookie jar doesn't mean it's a cookie." You need an RSS feed to be a podcast.
Yes, YouTubers create content.
But they are no podcasters. They are YouTubers.
Technically we are all content creators.
