This Week In Domaining – Episode 1: A recap of the top domain name news stories from last week

Podcast Icon

Well I’ve decided, after years of staying out of the audio or video streaming world that it’s time to jump back in. For those who know me, you know that I have a lot of energy and sometimes that energy just doesn’t translate as well with writing alone. At the same time, my life is incredibly busy and as I learned years ago, video takes a lot more time to put together than audio.

So I have decided to try (note the emphasis on try) to do a short and sweet weekly podcast with a recap of the top Domaining news from the previous week. Since I read Domaining.com every day and really enjoy following along with everything that’s going on in the domain name world I thought a nice concise recap would be something people might like. Also since I spend just about every waking minute running a SaaS startup I wanted to do more to give back to the Domaining world and thought this would be a fun way to do it.

I said in the beginning of the episode that I’d try to keep it to 5 – 10 minutes but I went over by about a minute on my first episode so let’s just say these episodes are likely going to be 10 – 15 minutes. Hopefully this is a short enough format that you can easily catch-up on the latest Domaining news on your way to work on Monday.

Also, three quick things to point out about this podcast before you scroll down and hit play:

  1. I am keeping the podcast sponsor-free – what you hear on the podcast is me reporting the news, good, bad, and ugly
  2. No interviews – I’m going to stick to covering the news, if you want interviews both the DNW Podcast and DomainSherpa are the best place to go, seriously – they rock!
  3. Focus on other blogs – I don’t want this to be wildly self-promotional so want to highlight other blogs breaking news

Okay, ready to dive in and get started? Here’s the first episode of This Week In Domaining:

    Great post again Morgan, love the short episodes. I kept this tab open for a few days until I finally got the chance to listen to it. Glad I recently bought more bitcoin even after the split!
