Facebooktwitterredditmail

From time to time we find ourselves in conversations with people talking about things that they don’t like within podcasts – today we want to talk about some things that turn us off of a podcast immediately. After we go through some of these, we’ll also talk about some things that we’ve heard others say turn them off – but doesn’t actually turn us away. As we go through we’ll explain some of the reasons why these items bug us, and some suggestions we have.

Finally, we take listener feedback in the Better Podback.

Better Podcasting #197 – Building A Podcast Community in 2019

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Back in May 2015 (in Episode 81), we tackled the idea of building a community around your podcast. However, since recording that, a lot has changed with both community structures, our experiences and community platform availability – that means it was time to revisit this topic. In this episode we’ll talk about the considerations for building a podcast community, some best practices if you’re going to, and our personal suggestion of platforms to try to build a podcast community in.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we revisit last week’s discussion on Libsyn’s IAB certified statistics to share the further details that SP mentioned last week on the show, and some new information received after Libsyn’s Rob Walch reached out to us.

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Whether related to podcasting or the niche that you podcast about, as a hobby podcaster there are probably events that you wish that you could go to, but might not be able to. In this episode we discuss how you can identify events that you think have a take-away for you and how you can pull information from them remotely. We’ll also talk about some of the things that you miss out on by not attending in person.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, SP shares some metrics from the podcasts that he has hosted on Libsyn, and how they were impacted by the new IAB certified stats.

Finally, in the Better Podback we talk about a recent firmware update to the Rodecaster Pro.
