WordPress Community Interview With Krystal O’Connor

Krystal O’Connor lives near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and works at Libsyn, which is a podcasting hosting service. Libsyn has over 2.6 billion downloads and hosts over 25,000 shows with 44 million monthly audience members. Krystal provides technical support, writes and maintains the Libsyn Knowledge Base, produces the video tutorials, manages the Libsyn Tutor YouTube channel, and co-hosts Libsyn Live.

She spoke at WordCamp Pittsburgh 2016 with a presentation titled WordPress + Podcasting.

Many podcasters turn to WordPress to help build the website that will be the landing page for their podcast show, but did you know there were themes, plugins, and best practices geared directly toward marrying your podcast and your WordPress site?

Krystal is very active in the podcasting community and Podcamp Pittsburgh.

Krystal blogs at https://www.krystaloconnor.com. If you read her About Page, Krystal states that “We were the first house in the neighborhood with a computer (one of the IBM PC’s), and I distinctly remember installing a hard drive into the computer when I was about 7. That’s when I got my start in the tech world, right there on my grandparent’s den floor.”

We talk about podcasting in general, procasters versus podcasters,  audio versus video among other things.
