We're back!
Jerod Morris and Jonny Nastor and reunite to talk podcasting ... for the first time in almost 18 months!
We are actually killing two birds with one stone: a Lunch & Learn for folks in the Unemployable Initiative (a community that Jerod runs) and a new episode for this long-dormant Showrunner feed.
Learn more about the community:
We cover:
• Takeaways from the annual Infinite Dial survey on the podcasting industry.
• Why our four pillars of successful are still just as important now as when we developed them; in fact, they are probably more important.
• What authenticity in podcasting actually means.
• Why it's not just about connection anymore, but about developing something on top of that.
• Umm ... what is a "podcast" anymore?
• What impact with Spotify and other streaming services have on listening habits and the way we should think about our podcasts.
• A few technological advancements worth considering.
• A massive podcasting opportunity that not a lot of people are considering.
We also answer several questions from the live folks:
• How do you promote a new podcast and drive attention to it?
• What should you consider if you have a thick accent?
• Are short-form podcasts a good option for hyperlocal websites?
And more. It was a jam-packed conversation. And you know what? It was just really fun. The Showrunner podcast worked because Jonny and Jerod have a lot of respect for each other, good chemistry, and different viewpoints. I think all of that was still there 18 months later. :-)
