Travel Tales From Beyond The Brochure

Aug 25, 2022


This podcast was supposed to have been on beer. But I was waiting for a couple of contributions that never came. That will be coming soon. Instead, I thought I'd do something related to that very fact, and talk about podcasting. Since it's been over four years since I started this pod, since I've done nearly 70 episodes, and since I've recently passed 20,000 downloads. I'm going to talk about 'things I wish I'd known before I started'.

Topics discussed in this episode are:
* Having been in Glasgow for a year
* Socialising with enbies and doing stuff in September
* Why I don't vlog (part 7832 of a series of 8490323)
* The sound quality of my early podcasts
* Abandoned and ended podcasts
* Meeting audience expectations
* Planning Podcasts leads to Perfect Performance
* Contributions, effects, and the need for a 'Sound Library'
* The sheer length of time it takes to make an episode
* It's okay to change
* Who listens to podcasts anyway?

A PDF transcript of this episode is available.

As always, if you have anything to say about the topic, or indeed about my podcasting in general, leave a comment or let me know. I have a newsletter with extra content, and where I'll be mentioning future podcast episodes if you want to make your own contribution.

I also have a Patreon - if you like what you hear, and want to access exclusive content (or just to show your appreciation), then head on over.

Until next time, bye for now. :)
