This is the first of what I hope develops into a audio podcast about the JaYoe World Tour.  Here you can hear a more in depth discussion about my travel preparations, my thoughts, my gear and a lot more details about what goes on while on the JaYoe World Tour.

This first one is more of a test than anything.  I wanted to set up the process of making the Podcast and really just wanted to figure out how to make one of these… I wouldn’t even classify this as Podcast #1… It’s just a test.

Still, you should find it interesting!  Enjoy.

    Matt, really enjoyed your first podcast. I’m digging the way you are putting this all together. Every time I get a notice about something new on the JaYoe sight I get super excited and so far you haven’t disappointed. Keep up the good work and good luck when you get back on the road. Really looking forward to following your adventures again. By the way, I recently received my metallic orange HPV Scorpion fs20 and I LOVE IT! I have you to thank for making the leap into the world of trykes. Any chance you will find your way through Seattle on your tour? Hope so, would love to clock a few miles with ya.

    Hey Matt, what podcasts do you enjoy listening to? (3 hours? Wow!)

    I enjoyed your first podcast, was very informative and interesting. I would have loved to have something to watch, even if it was a still picture, better that than just a black screen!! Anyway, I would love to hear about the people you meet, the people you might stay with and eat with. I always liked how you described the food and how it was prepared. The stories of the people you might stay with for the night, your thoughts on what you are experiencing and what you and Ryan are doing, seeing and thinking. It was also interesting when you described the scenery you were biking through. You are a very good speaker and you talk like you are very comfortable with what you are doing and saying. You’re very good at what you do Matthew, I know I’ve listed items here that you already do in your videos. I’ve never listened to a podcast before so I don’t what exactly what it is. I personally would love to see some video with the speaking. Thank you for giving those of us who can’t travel like you do the opportunity of seeing the world through your eyes!!!

      well.. if you want to watch.. it takes time away from travel… i think i need to find a middle ground. the nice thing about audio podcasts is you can listen to them while your running errands… or driving or whatever… i actually love audio podcasts… im listening to one now as a matter of fact.

    I understand the difference between what you want to accomplish in podcasts vs videos, but I much prefer video. Thinking about the podcasts in the context of your desire to get more people following your story is difficult bc it seems the podcasts would be targeted st only a subset of your audience. On a totally different note, your partnered ride sounds like a great reality show ;-). Too bad that opportunity never got going.

      that was just the first one… and by offering a few different media i can focus more in the act of traveling…. The audio podcasts have a lot of potential… just need to find the right format for them.

    This is a great idea. You had stated earlier that you thought that you might be producing videos only maybe twice a month on your journey. If podcasts are easy to produce/post your more fanatic fans (redundant, no?) will be able to track your journey closer to real time. You are pretty darn good on extemporaneous self-editing. If podcasts are frequent (daily or every other day) the rule of thumb would be about 7 minutes for a solo podcast diary style or 15 minutes if both you and Ryan are talking, But like every rule there is an an exception: If you are on a roll with a vivid story to recount, keep talking.
