Summary: Launching a podcast is a little tech and a HUGE mental game of overcoming fear, getting out of your own way, and (sometimes) a daily grind. Join me as I share what I've picked up on my podcasting journey over the last 5 years, hosting over 250 episodes, growing as a host and editor, developing systems and processes, and beginning to share what I've learned. The road is hard-fought and has allowed me to help other podcasters launch, improve their shows, up their editing games, and more. And I've been able to edit over 300 episodes myself. Join me on my quest to help 1,000 podcasters launch, sustain, and improve their shows.
Yesterday I shared about some of the things I’ve done to grow as a podcaster. Today I’m going to give you a real example of how I do this.
Podcasting may involve some technology hurdles but the hardest thing to master is providing consistent, high quality content. Here's what an experience with a traveling evangelist and the military can teach us.
Maybe you've been producing your podcast for a while. If so, it might be time for a change. Here's why you might want to make a change and what happened when I changed how I produced mine.
Nearly every new podcaster has to decide what microphone to use. How much to invest. What will you ACTUALLY get with a broadcast quality mic?
You’re going along. Your podcast is going great. But something unexpected happens. What will you do?
Every choice we make to do something means there's something else we can't do. Launching a podcast takes time. Will you be able to balance work, family, and a podcast?
When I first started as a podcaster, I wasn't very good. In fact, I was pretty bad. But I did a few key things to improve as a podcaster. Listen to discover what I did.
There are a lot of different things to figure out before starting a podcast. One of them is how you will set yourself up do the work to continue and to be creative when things get difficult or it takes longer to get things done than you'd hoped. Here's what I did to make it easier when I was just getting started. And, while I've tweaked some things over the last 5 years and more than 250 podcast episodes, I'm still following the same basic things I laid out for myself before I got started.
