This year at Dreamforce 2015 we took podcasting to a whole new level by giving our Salesforce podcasters a big stage in the Admin Lodge to record and connect with fans. With new shows being recorded almost every hour of Dreamforce our community of podcasters generated a ton of content!
In celebration of International Podcast Day– September 30- a day dedicated to promoting podcasting worldwide through education and engagement we wanted to share the links to all of that great content our community of podcasters created this year in the podcast studio at Dreamforce.
A fortnightly podcast with developers working with all things Salesforce and Salesforce1. Especially force.com (Apex, Visualforce) but also Heroku and ExactTarget.
Dreamforce 2015 Special #1
This is a video podcast for the ambitious salesforce.com administrator. Each episode is focused on combining project management and process improvement methodologies to further our careers.

There are podcasts and then there is WizardCast! WizardCast is the newest addition to The Wizard News’ growing media empire. I’m joined by my co-host Mark Ross, aka Salesforce Yoda from the The Swamps of Salesforce-Dagobah, as we explore the world of salesforce.com with some fun and humor. Listeners are invited to interact with us. Maybe we’ll interview you or you could join us for a quiz episode. Perhaps you’ll send us a question or a bit of audio we can play on the podcast. So come and join us. I hope you learn something. I hope you laugh. Above all I hope you have some fun.

Listening to a podcast is a great way to consume amazing content while on the go. For Salesforce Admins it’s easier than creating a workflow. If you are new to listening to podcasts let me walk you through your options.
Three ways to listen
1. From the embedded player
Most podcasters publish their episodes on their websites with an embedded player. So if you aren’t familiar with podcasting this is the easiest way to listen to a podcast. It’s like going to a blog post and clicking play. You can check out our most recent episode here.
2. Play in a pop-up window
Just below the player is a link “Play in a new window”. If you click that the player will open in a new smaller window. This makes browsing the web easier and it can play in the background while you… gee I don’t know… do some Salesforce work.
3. From your mobile device
For those ButtonClick Admins who are on the move, sitting at your desk to listen to the podcast may not be your gig. No worries, we have you covered. If you are on an IOS device like an iPhone or an iPad you can download the podcast app from iTunes and subscribe there. When you subscribe to a podcast it means new episodes are delivered automatically to the app, so you don’t have to search anymore.
There are additional podcast apps available for Android and other devices- my favorite for those is Stitcher. With any podcast app you can subscribe to the podcast, and with Stitcher- like the iTunes podcast app- new episodes will appear when they are published.
I’ll be honest, I listen to 100% of the podcasts I’m subscribed to on my iPhone. They allow me to consume content with very little effort. So I hope this makes listening to podcasts easier for you. If you haven’t listened to the ButtonClick Admin podcast I ask that you give it a try. And if you like what you hear, or if you don’t head on over to iTunes and give us a review- I would love to get your feedback. If there are other podcasts you listen to please share them in the comments below.
