In this episode, Shawn and Jen discuss the idea that there is a perfect length for a podcast episode. We mention the potential future of podcasting for Conservatives. We also talk about why a brand could benefit from having its own podcast – and end with an example of how NOT to do that.
In this episode, Shawn and Jen discover that there actually are audio footballing (or soccer) podcasts out there. Who knew? We give hope to introverts who think they couldn’t possibly do podcasting. (You can do it!). And we point out a podcast with an anonymous host who is providing a beneficial service to listeners.
In this episode, Shawn and Jen give you a round-up of articles that predict what will happen in podcasting in 2017. We discuss what we think about the potential rise of “walled gardens”, the future of advertising in podcasts, and what it means that we’re all mainstream now.
In this episode, Shawn and Jen talk about a Korean podcasting platform that is more popular in Korea than iTunes is. We debate the value of transcription of podcast episodes, and ponder if Shortcut (and services like it) can really make audio more sharable.
Ironically, we also get into a discussion about the importance of consistency in podcasting (despite the fact that we haven’t been super consistent.)
In this podcast, Shawn and Jen talk about the passion involved in podcasting. People often start podcasts about something they are passionate about. That same passion can come out in weird ways in response to either praise or a critique of their show.
In this episode, Shawn and Jen talk about what could happen if your podcast became a movie (or TV show). We also discuss why moms should listen to podcasts, and point out the stories behind some podcaster’s Twitter handles.
In this episode, Shawn and Jen talk about pirates that steal other people’s audio content. We review some options about what you can do if your content is stolen, and point out a site that tends to end up with a lot of stolen content.
We also talk about why it is a good idea to listen to a podcast while you are running. And we finish the show with a nice story about a podcaster who participated in the Rio Olympics.
In this episode, Shawn and Jen discuss the dream of all advertisers who place their ads on podcasts – the unskippable episode.
The advertisers are super interested in finding some way to know, for certain, how many listeners actually heard their ad (and how many skipped right over it). This motivation values ads more highly than the content of your podcast.
In addition, we give you a really good example of how to advertise your podcast without annoying people. It takes a little creativity, but has great potential. We also poke at the concept of getting to the top of iTunes.
In this episode, Shawn and Jen discuss two articles that provide advice on how to start your own podcast. One is intended for those who are brand new to podcasting, and the other brings up thoughts of WTF.
We also review yet another list that is in response to the infamous one done by Collision Media.
