Steps to Post a Podcast Highlight on Clammr

1) Click “Menu” Button (top left corner)

2) Click bottom “My Library” button > “More” button > “Podcasts” 

(Note to Len & April: In our next released version in about 2 weeks, these 3 clicks will be reduced to 1 by just clicking directly on a “My Podcasts” button.)

3) Select the source Podcast from your Podcast List > select the episode

4) Select “Yes” to include the Podcast’s metadata in your post

5) Touch the clip on the soundboard to activate it > then drag the soundwave within the track to select a different section of the podcast.  (As you drag, you will see the timestamps for the  beginning and ending of the clip.)

 – Your selected clip can be 18 seconds or less

 – Select a highlight or phrase that is a valuable, standalone nugget

6) Click the Play arrow button (in the top left of the mixboard) – to confirm you have made the intended selection

7) Click “Next” in the top right

8) Click the Facebook and Twitter icons to connect your social media accounts – if you want to simultaneously post Facebook & Twitter

Here are a few instructional videos that might also be helpful: 

 – The first video on that page runs through the clammr creation process.

Music for my podcast is from an original Thelonius Monk composition named “Well, You Needn’t.” This version is “Ra-Monk” by Eval Manigat on the “Variations in Time: A Jazz Persepctive” CD by Public Transit Recording” CD.

NOTE: Special thanks to Chris Kraft, founder of Share Rocket, who tuned in to my Periscope livestream last night when I was putting the episode together. He spotted a mistake I’d made at the opening, when I was headed toward the registration desk. “You said 2014,” Chris alerted me in a text message that flashed across the Periscope screen. So I snipped the offending year and left in the month and date. This was my first experience of livestream crowd editing of a podcast!

    Len: I very much enjoyed your interview with Robert Martin, but I must totally disagree with him with respect to the impact of the printing press versus photography. No innovation in history since the wheel has had a more profound and fundamental impact on every aspect of society than the printing press to include little things like the Age of Enlightenment and the Reformation. Photography changed a lot but not with the same depth of change.

    Fair point, John. It’s hard to argue the accepted point that Gutenberg led to huge changes. I think Rob’s take was more theoretical, part of his presentation of successive ways of rendering reality, from print to visual, video and now virtual reality and maybe even smellivision–all ways of connecting with reality through the senses. I’m glad you enjoyed the interview. He was fun to talk to. I hope to post his full talk as a separate episode in October, when Darlene and I will be in Ecuador for a month. Thanks for commenting.

    I can see what he meant about how photography fundamentally deepened our perception of the world going from the printed word to photography. However……;-) If you think about it, prior to Gutenberg peoples view of the world was mostly limited to the five senses, what was happening in his or her local area, or word of mouth. The printing press literally opened all mankind to the entire world and beyond. In a sense we went from near zero (before the printing press) to near infinite (after the printing press) with regard to our relationship with our world and beyond.
