About Neal Veglio and Podknows PODCASTING

What does Podknows Podcasting 'do'?

Are you obsessed about your brand?

Do you want people who stumble across you online to be left with a solid impression?

Would you like to feel confident that any time you share your content it’s connecting with the right people and leaving them with the desired emotions?

Do you want potential listeners to consider you a serious proposition for doing business with you, and ultimately become your loyal and most valued customers?

If you’ve answered these questions with a “yes”, then you need to talk with Neal at Podknows Podcasting.

Podknows isn’t a podcasting agency.

Podknows isn’t like other professional podcasting services. These business ‘do’ podcasting, and that’s the product they sell. 

For Podknows, the podcast is the vehicle you’ll use on your journey towards success. Whatever that success looks like to you, you’ll have Neal and Podknows guiding you towards it.

And we’re serious about getting you there.

Because there are core values in place (scroll below), potential Podknows podcasters are invited to an initial introductory meeting (online or in person as preferred) in order to learn more about goals.

Exclusively yours 

Podnows doesn’t work with everyone.

There’s a reputation to maintain, and we only want to work with those we truly know we can help.

But if we decide there’s a fit we can definitely help you benefit from #thepodknowsdifference.

This means Podknows is able to focus more attention on you and your goals.

Podknows will be your loudest branding and marketing cheerleader.

Podknows is here to make you sound good through podcasting, or any other type of branding that uses audio at its central core.

Want to learn the origin story? Read on!

It started with listening to Kenny Everett.

Those soundscapes.

The silly noises and voices.

Everything cuddly Ken was creating on his Capital Radio show triggered the imagination of a young eight year old Neal Veglio, Podknows‘ founder.

What started out with just one silly radio disc jockey’s zany radio show turned into an obsession with all things radio and audio.

Listening to the American radio shows pouring in over the AM waveband late at night was a must.

Under the covers.

In the midst of darkness.

And then there was the music creation.

Music production

Neal began using home computers with samplers to pick bits of old vinyl records and put them in to the computer to then change and manipulate them.

This led to a love of the keyboard synthesizer, and creating dance music records.

Aside from one music magazine featuring a Veglio composed track on its cover CD, the music career wasn’t to be.

Aside from a limited number of ghost compositions through freelance gigs, the number one hit failed to materialise.

To this day, Podknows utilises a lot of this musical experience and skill.

All of the intros you will hear on the podcasts on the Podknows Podcasting Network were all composed and produced by Neal Veglio.

These are included as standard for all network podcasts.

The first podcaster?

A lot of people cite Adam Curry as the podfather – the first person to ever podcast.

These people are basing this on the fact that he was the first person to post audio to the internet inside an RSS feed.

However, if you’re going from a wider metric (as many do, including YouTube and even social media posts) Podknows founder Neal Veglio was the first person to ever post audio online for people to download.

In March of 2001, an mp3 version of his radio show was uploaded to the website of pioneering digital radio station Stormlive.

It crashed.

Neal was the popular afternoon presenter and had listeners in the US as well as across Europe.

This was the start of a deep and serious love affair between Neal and podcasting.

In 2001, Neal’s fascination with what would later become known as podcasting, began.

Podknows Podcasting is the brainchild of former national radio personality Neal Veglio (JACK fm, Capital Radio, talkSPORT).

When the radio industry went fully corporate and started turning its back on small businesses and communities, Neal recognised a gap in the market for creating platforms for those communities.

During the early part of his radio career, helping out in radio station newsrooms in the mid 90s, Neal discovered a talent for using documentaries to help ordinary people tell compelling stories.

Combined with a stellar 25 year career hosting morning shows, chatting with celebrities and taking callers to air, he quickly developed an awareness for the kind of content these people wanted to hear.

Now, Podknows has a clear ‘why’:

Helping brands and individuals talk to their customers and advocates, using podcasting to share compelling and relatable audio content

Planning

To have the best of chance of success with your podcast, you need to first figure out everything there is to know about what it is, why you’re doing it, and the results you want to achieve. You don’t want to launch any kind of podcast without a clear strategy in place, and having been involved in launching more than one hundred shows, Podknows is best placed to help you.

Production/editing

This often-overlooked aspect of podcasting is arguably THE most important one, second only to the content itself. Get this wrong, and you’re already ditching half your listeners. Podknows uses two decades of podcast creation experience to edit your content to a superior level, that will help you beat the competition.

Coaching

Everyone’s different, so every coaching programme is different. Whether you want to learn everything quickly and to an advanced level, or you just want to learn the basics and grow organically, all sessions are tailored to your exact requirements.

Branding

If you already have a podcast up and running, but you want to make it sound better, Podknows offers custom audio branding, including music beds, show idents and even voice overs for your intro and outro. It’s hard to explain the difference between a well branded show, so I’d instead advise you to listen to one of our many network shows to hear the difference between them, and the podcasts you’re regularly listening to!

Repairs

If you already have a podcast but you’ve listened back and you know it could sound better, Podknows offers an episode repair service. This can include anything from removing awkward silences of stammers, bad Zoom glitches, excessive room noise and hiss, and volume levelling to make sure everything is more pleasant to listen to

Full branded podcast

Want a podcast for your brand, but don’t want to get involved in hosting it or producing it? Are you a busy corporate executive who prefers to pay others to get it done? Or are you perhaps a time-poor small-business owner? Talk to Podknows. Using a team of professionals, you’re just one conversation away from having your own professionally branded and presented podcast that’s connecting your business with your ideal collaborators and customers. Using almost thirty years of presentation experience, we’ll make sure you have audio content you can be proud of.
