It’s been a while since we’ve done a “back to basics” episode, and with a recent upward trend of seeing disappointment with relatively new podcasters, today we’re discussing the CRUEL REALITY of starting a podcast. We’re not doing this to discourage you from podcasting, but instead, we’re hoping that this will help you set your expectations at a realistic level and thus be more likely to continue.
In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we’re going to tear down some bridges as we discuss the Bridge Ratings report on podcasting. Finally, we’ll take your feedback about your podcast including what you think makes it successful.
