    How about Valking through WordPress?

    As Tweeted earlier – how about W.H.Y! Meaning WordPress Help (with) Yoast. Or simply just The Yoastly Podcast.

    Good luck with it…

    Great call by Daron.

    As for suggestions, here’s a couple for the name of the show;

    1. Tagged
    2. WordPress Opentopic

  4. Ryan ErismanBy Ryan Erisman on 1 July, 2009

    YOW! Yoast on WordPress

    Great news Joost, always looking for new WordPress-related podcasts. Good luck with it.

    I’d love to hear some topics aimed at using WP as a CMS.

    Looking forward to the podcast :) .

    Here is a name suggestion: The PressCast or The WordCast

    • DavidBy David on 11 July, 2009

      WordCast already exists as a WordPress Podcast. :)

    This is really good news, I download a good number of webmaster radio shows via itunes and have been impressed whenever you’ve been on them in a guest capacity, will be sure to add your podcast to the list.

    Congratulations Joost! Looking forward to listening.

    Nice one Joost,
    Make sure and let us know when they get scheduled.

    Name for the show?
    I dont think I should make any of my suggests public. I will IM you some ideas :)

    my suggestion is WordPresser

  11. Chris ClaytonBy Chris Clayton on 3 July, 2009

    You should call it “press it with Joost” or somthing, leaving out ‘word’, that way your not restricted to just the blogging software but can also talk about their sister products such as buddypress, videopress ect.

    Cant wait to listen :)

    • Joost de ValkBy Joost de Valk on 3 July, 2009

      That’s very smart feedback Chris, thanks!

    WordPress Toast with Yoast

    Daron is an awesome guy! I’ve known him since I went to my first SEO Conference that he hosted in Vancouver, BC in 2001.

    WMR tends not to build the name or brand of the host into the name of the show.

    I can’t see anything with Yoast or your name being in it.

    That said, think about the job the show does for people. It helps them…
    extend and optimize the WordPress platform far beyond the stock install, right?

    Kind of like aftermarket replacement parts for a car.

    Seems to me that “Pimp My Ride” would be a good seed of an idea to take and expand upon for the name.


  15. kartoBy karto on 2 August, 2009

    I think you should call it “Yoastcast”

  16. Aaron D. CampbellBy Aaron D. Campbell on 6 August, 2009

    Now that the first episode is out there, do you know if there will be a way to subscribe to this via iTunes (or something similar)?

  17. LaurensBy Laurens on 12 August, 2009

    Here is another vote for adding the podcast to iTunes.

  18. LaurensBy Laurens on 12 August, 2009

    You may also want to fix the tags in future episodes. The first episode has ‘Joost DeValk’ as the title and ‘Press this’ as the artist. I guess it needs to be the other way around. Setting ‘genre’ to ‘podcast’ or ‘WordPress podcast’ would also be a nice touch. Metadata are not just important to WordPress users only!
