Better Podcasts: Things That Matter

If you didn’t already know this, I produce and host two podcasts, The Photographer And Model Podcast and Confessions of an EMS Newbie. I’ve been listening to podcasts for years and recently started listening to a bunch of new ones.

They are driving me crazy.

I’ve decided to be part of the solution instead of the problem and offer some tips that may help make them better.

If you are taking the time to create a podcast at all you believe you have something important to say. If it is important you want other people to hear it, and to keep listening.

Starting a new podcast you can easily get overwhelmed and everyone has limited resources of time, money and expertise. You start reaching your limits and start letting things – especially time consuming or difficult things – drop by the wayside. I’m going to talk about the things that matter to your listeners and will keep them coming back.

Great content is key, but I’m going to assume that. If what you are talking about has not audience or is boring to them, nothing else will matter.

I was going to do it as one long post, but it got out of hand, so now it is a multiple day multiple post series and this is the introduction.
