    A Different Set of Common Podcast Questions

    I have been working in the podcasting space since 2008, and have two shows, each with over 100 episodes. As I spread the word about my current podcast, I receive countless questions about the ins and outs of podcasting. Some of the questions are pretty typical, but other questions cause me to pause, reflect and think about an answer. Here are five questions and answers that aren’t as common but continue to come up frequently.

    Peak Podcast? We’re Just Getting Started

    A recently published piece in The New York Times entitled "Have We Hit Peak Podcast?" has been quite the topic of conversation, garnering some mixed reactions. The subtitle removes all doubt as to the editorial angle: "If past experience (cough, blogs) is any indication, a shakeout is nigh." No matter how one fits into the podcasting ecosystem, we can all see that the sheer number of shows has become overwhelming. However, not all podcasters get into it for money, fame, or to become an "influencer." Discounting the creative joy of podcasting is a mistake.

It’s about helping individuals learn something new and engage with a medium that may have gone undiscovered."

    Making a First Im-PRESS-ion

    We're talking about talking to the press. Whenever I bring up reaching out to the press, I get this response almost like people don't realize they can? People seem to really undersell themselves and get really intimidated. Every podcast journalist I know wants this medium and its creators to succeed. So I think that's step one for getting people on the right track: journalists who cover podcasts want you to succeed.

    How I Cut My Podcast Production Time in Half

    I had a podcast that I loved creating, but I felt like I needed to quit. Between kids and my regular job, the 10 to 20-hour production time per episode was severely weighing on me. I realized that I needed to study my category and audience to help guide me toward choosing an appropriate [narrative] pattern. By visualizing the data that I collected, I could actually see what was going on at a higher level. I’ve cut my production time in half because now I have clarity around the structure of my story and I’m not stressing about it.
