Quid Pro Quo podcast advertising

When I read this post by Jay it got me thinking. He posted an audio ad for his own podcast and asked anyone to include it in their podcast and that he'd reciprocate by playing their ad in his podcast.

Which made me Google around a bit and now I'm asking: is there a site for ad-trading like that? Seems like it'd be a nice thing to have especially for the more hobby-level podcasts. You could organize straight-up paid advertising but then also simple ad trades between podcasts.

Podcast roundup

Here's a list of some of the podcasts that have been playing my stuff lately:

I'm also in this Japanese Podsafe music network now and have been played on a bunch of podcasts I can't figure out the names of.

And as for traditional radio my album's in the Top 5 of the Top 30 on WMEB, the University of Maine station. Thanks to everyone playing my music!

Brad Sucks: Podsafe

After a few people told me to do it, my album I Don't Know What I'm Doing is "Podsafe" now. You can find it here. Complaint #1: there seems to be basically an unlimited number of sites for musicians to upload their music to and they rarely, if ever, allow you to specify URLs. You have to upload each song individually off your hard drive like a chump. I'd like a meta-submitting/uploading service. Like an automated street team. Or sites should make it less annoying. I have MP3s on my fast website with neatly labeled ID3 tags. Please take advantage of that.

My other complaint is that these sites all have blogging services with no option to syndicate your own blog from somewhere else. I'm not going to start blogging on Myspace or Podsafe or whatever. There's no way. But if you were to syndicate my RSS feed, you'd have the illusion that I was participating and I would possibly build readers on your service (tying me to it, which is what you want) rather than just having a big empty blog there.

Airplay

A shout-out to podcasts that have been playing my junk:

I'm also told I was part of an impromptu battle of the bands on the Jay Thomas Show on Sirius satellite radio where I lost to Jay Thomas's 14 year old son. That's pretty awesome, but also a crushing blow and a massive intelligence failure.

Thanks to anyone else out there forcing people to listen to my music. Drop me a line if I missed any places!

Remixes and More

Here's some remixes and also the first mash-up I've gotten:

The latest remix source is for I Think I Started A Trend (61mb). As always, please deliver to me your remixes and I will be most pleased.

I'm going to be presenting an award on The Skinny on Sports' award show podcast - The Skinnies. Presenters include Adam Curry, Dave Slusher, Michael Geoghegan and some other familiar names. Apparently listeners have the chance to win a 1 gig iPod Shuffle and Etymotic 61 earphones, the show should be up on and after Wednesday.

I'm working on a lot of Brad Sucks related stuff and hope to start actually finishing some of those things soon or at the very least die in my sleep and have them released posthumously.
