Preventing Podfade

Podfading is when a podcast slows down and is (eventually) abandoned about seven or eight episodes in. No one ever starts a podcast intending to podfade. It’s always so exciting to start out with lots of ideas about who to interview and how to get it to sound right.

And yet, it’s a cycle we see again and again. While it can happen for a number of reasons, podcasting platforms that have tracked the phenomenon have picked up on a few recurring trends. For example, podcasters often get overwhelmed by all the work required, or simply run out of things to say.

However, there are plenty of ways to avoid it, from seriously streamlining the production process, to finding co-hosts and guests to help pick up the slack.

Get a full explanation of podfading as a phenomenon and find out how to take it on in this episode of the Spreaker Live Show.

Podcasting Tip: Using a Microphone

4

Podcasting is easy, but we all get caught up in the details sometimes. Common problem? Those pesky microphones.

If you’re too close, your voice is booming through, and if you’re too far, your fans can’t hear what you have to say.

The writers at Radiospeaker.it have come up with a solution. Your mouth should be about one hand’s length away from the microphone. Simple as that. It’s an ideal distance that gives you enough room to feel comfortable and sound your best.

Of course variables come into play, such as the type of microphone you’re using, the volume of your voice, and different filters and additional tools you use, so be sure to record a few test runs. In general though, one hand’s length is a good rule of thumb to go by.

Try it out next time you broadcast, and let us know how well it works out!
