4/30/2019
More
This tactic has been used by radio and television for decades to make a story more relevant and compelling. Should you be using it in your podcast too? I love talking to strangers. There, I said it. I’m that guy. I will walk right up to you and ask the most inane question or share the strangest observation - whatever is on my mind - because I just can’t get enough of conversations with new people. That might make me weird, but it’s served me well in my radio career (not so much my...

4/2/2019

You’ve got a co-host - that’s great. It makes creating the podcast so much more fun and easier too, right? Bad news - there’s a much higher chance that you’re effing it up because two hosts means double the chances you’re getting it wrong. Translation, your listeners are suffering. They’re being subjected to bad audio, uncomfortable silences, unnecessary babbling and, sometimes awkwardness that is leaking right through their headphones and gumming up their earballs. Now, let me be clear...

Do you have a verbal crutch? You know that word or sound you lean on when you’re struggling to find the next real word in your sentence. Um, ah, like, you know, I mean… it’s natural. Now, stop doing it. Disclaimer. This is not a podcast about how to edit out every um and ah from your podcast (I don’t believe in it). And, it’s not a podcast about how to never say um or ah again.

My podcast disappeared from iTunes. Poof. Gone. No warning. Just gone. Can you imagine if every episode you ever painstakingly created just … vanished. That feeling in your chest right now is pretty much how I felt when I got a friendly tweet letting me know that my podcast had disappeared from iTunes (aka Apple Podcasts).

Confession time. Are you a podcast cowboy who just wings it with every guest? Is every interview you do the podcast equivalent of a blind date. Not cool. I don’t care if you can pull it off nine times out of ten.
