Would anyone be interested in starting a podcast? (talking Politics/ Predictit/ Mocking RCP)
@grg481. In Brenden's scenario the fees would actually be less than $3.00. For each share that receives a $1.00 settlement, the 10% profit fee would be calculated after deducting the initial cost-basis for each share. For instance, if the cost to buy a share was $.45, then only $.55 of the $1.00 settlement would be subject to the profit fee. In this example, the profit fee on 30 shares at a cost-basis of $.45 per share would be $1.65.
less 10% ($3.00) in fees
Hi I am a geopolitical author. I'd be interested in blogging about world political events. Add me to the list.
This sounds great. I'm glad people are interested.
I'm interested in the production side. I've got experience editing audio and would be interested in working on segments and setup processes, setup websites. Might start with a shared google doc with those who are interested with contributing throwing out ideas for segments, "New Markets" (background, discussion), "Bear/Bull Top Picks", "PredictIt News" (policy changes, feature updates), "Devils in the Details" (how you could loose or make money by the technicalities in the rules). Is there anyone at PredictIt willing to sponsor this? Just some level of promotion would be all we need.
According to this, (yes, I googled "podcasting 101" haha) all you would need is one person with an audio recorder hooked into a mic, as well as the headphone jack of their computer while on a skype call with someone or even multiple people.
If there are any takers, we could have a weekly discussion about current events and the markets that may have been affected. There are also plenty of polls that come out each week that can be interpreted from multiple points of view. There wouldn't be a shortage of topics for several news junkies to talk about. I'm game to start one up, let me know here if anyone is interested in giving it a go. I think if you you had three people there would be enough conversation to keep it interesting.
Check this out: http://hivelogic.com/articles/how-to-record-a-podcast-with-people-in-multiple-locations it could be a small community driven podcast with people in different places and still be high quality. Just google's two-cents.
I would be an active listener
Skype works well, as long as the person on the other end of the call has a decent mic. What equipment do you have?
