- 37:10 – There are many different archetypes for a podcast, all of which have their own unique strengths. Some of the most common include Artist, Teacher, Educator, Conversationalist, Newscaster, and Storyteller. Leverage the skills you already have in order to make your podcast a success.
- 42:20 – When launching and developing a podcast, you don’t need to stick to a set amount of publications at first. If it is more involved, more artistic, you may be able to publish less because your it has more staying power than that of a newscaster.
- 45:00 – If you are already performing in your daily life, whether that’s through song, poetry, theatre, interviews, or professional talks, record it! You can use that as one of your publications, and get two uses out of one production.
- 46:00 – Ask yourself who your podcast is for, what you want to create for your audience, and how it will serve them, and develop from there.
- 50:00 – One of the challenges with podcasts is getting people into the conversation with you. You can incentivize people to reach out to you in different ways, like giving them a shout out on the show or providing forums for questions or feedback.
