At any point between 2004 and 2014ish, if Apple had announced that it was doing away with iTunes, music consumers and tech-heads around the world would have dejectedly tossed down their 2nd gen. 4 gig capacity blue ipod minis and shouted, “But my music!” Recently, however, when Apple casually mentioned that they were killing the service (in name, at least), it was sort of met with a worldwide “Ok, whatever.” In this episode of Ponderings from the Perch, Momma Bird Priscilla McKinney met with Jeffrey Hayzlett to discuss - at least partially - if there will be any discernible impact for podcasters and podcast listeners during the separation and renaming of Apple’s various media services. Spoiler: it’s unlikely.
Jeffrey Hayzlett is the Chairman of C-Suite Network, host of The HERO Factor Podcast on C-Suite Radio, a primetime television host and a bestselling author. In addition to the iTunes kerfuffle, he and Priscilla discuss the art of podcasting, good guests, bad guests, and the importance of a network related to individual podcast genres. Ponderings from the Perch is a member of C-Suite Network, which Hayzlett founded to give c-suite themed podcasts a familial bond to share resources and connections.
What else? Celebrity look-alikes, of course! We’ll get you the photographic documentation in a forthcoming blog recap, but the Little Birds have collectively suggested that Hayzlett bears a resemblance to the great Hugh Bonneville - in short, we foresee Mr. Hayzlett answering to “Lord Grantham” in the near future!
