Patrick McLean, promo for The Seanachai

If you listen to podcasts, no doubt you've heard a promo. A short, 30-second to 2-minute sound clip in the middle of someone else's podcast promoting another podcast. Podcasters commonly put them in breaks in their own podcast, like little commercials. Done well, they can amuse the listener and hook them onto your podcast. Done poorly, they can annoy and alienate the listener.
