include the most credible, highly-regarded doers and thought leaders in the field of nonprofit work.
I agree. I’m grateful to each guest for sharing their expertise. They’re a very generous bunch.
She approves of Jargon Jail to keep the credible, highly-regarded guest explanations simple and easy-to-follow for listeners. That’s critical. There’s no value in technical fog when you’re trying to put strategies into practice. Transgressing guests are thrown in Jargon Jail, but easily paroled when they define their terms.
Of the host:
it’s his wit, sense of fun with his guests, self-deprecating humor that gets me. His passion for his work and the nonprofit sector really comes through.
I want guests to be comfortable, so their passion reaches listeners. I strive for a conversation listeners want to be part of.
Listeners, since you can’t be in the studio I’m channeling you. You’re whispering questions to me, even though 99% of you 9,000+ won’t listen until days or weeks later on iTunes.
That doesn’t matter. I hear you.
Cheryl’s only negative is that I put out one show a week. She wants more.
Credit for the #3 ranking goes to the folks at The Chronicle. Assistant Managing Editor Peter Panepento has been a strident supporter from the outset. Web Editor Cody Switzer makes the show sound great.
Regina Walton is the social media manager for my podcasts, consulting and everything else I’ve got my hand in. She promotes all the stuff I create with an enthusiasm and professionalism that is exhausting. You rock, Regina!
Cheryl McCormick, thank you so much! Each show is a true labor of love. Your recognition of my work is much appreciated.
There’s a good chance you’ve heard rumors to the effect that I host two podcasts for nonprofits.
I can confirm the veracity of that hearsay.
Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio has over 9,000 listeners each week. Thanks to a burst of activity that more than doubled the number of iTunes ratings because of my 500 Stars Campaign, Nonprofit Radio trended in two categories last week.
Here it is in “What’s Hot” for Government & Organizations:
And here, in iTunes’ Nonprofit category:
Please give the show a 1 to 5 star rating in iTunes. It’s simple. Start here, then click “View” in iTunes.
My monthly podcast for The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Fundraising Fundamentals has about 3,000 listeners. It’s a short, 10-minute format, compared to the hour-long Nonprofit Radio.
It may be short, but it trended impressively last week also:
Listeners, I’m very grateful for your support of my podcasts. I want them to bring you value and I want you to tell me if they don’t. Thank you very much for listening.
Future listeners: come into the fold. Join the flock. It’s only a matter of time. You might as well start now.

This is really cool. Starting last Thursday I host a monthly podcast interview show for The Chronicle of Philanthropy. “Fundraising Fundamentals” will be released by The Chronicle every third Thursday of the month. You can listen there or on iTunes, where you can subscribe.
My first guest is Gail Perry and she’s perfect to kick-off the show! She’s the author of “Fired-Up Fundraising: Turn Board Passion Into Action” and that topic is so critical for success, yet so many nonprofits struggle with it. She shares super ideas, like “redefine ‘fundraising’ so even board members who hate it can be part of it.” She has a lot of practical, easy-to-follow advice that comes out in our 20 minute conversation.
