4 Tips on Making a Great Podcast


Podcasting is simple, but it’s easy to have some doubts when you’re approaching the microphone. Here are some tips regarding questions you guys have been asking us:

-Pick a good name It doesn’t have to be the snappiest title, but it does have to be memorable, and easily searchable on Google.

-Set up a time limit It all depends on what your objectives are, but 30-50 minutes is a safe bet. It’s long enough to allow the conversation to flow, but if we consider when our listeners are actually tuning in, it’s just about the right time for a commute to work, the typical drive, etc. Once you pick your time range, try your best to commit to it.

-Create a place for your fans to go when you’re not broadcasting Set up a solid network around your podcast where listeners can interact. Like to talk about movies? Get a site up, and include links to other reviews, show times, and more. Set up a Facebook page and Twitter account so fans can follow your updates. It’s what the pros do, and you have the same resources they do.

-Be flexible Don’t be afraid to make changes and develop the podcast as you go. If you need to scrap it and start new, that’s ok too. Sometimes a blank slate is just the thing to get the creative juices going.

So take these tips and go forth broadcasting away!

    When I’m on spreaker, I cannot hear it in my headphones when I’m playing music. I can hear myself talk, not while playing music. When I play it back, I have to plug my headphones back into my laptop. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    Ramp time would be nice in the play windows…it makes talk over smooth and you don’t overlap the singer. Stereo mic channel. The ability to take two input sources into the console. Thanks for this great system. Steve

    it would be awesome if there could be a phone in thingy so other people can phone a number to connect to the computer so they can be heard to!
    anyway please check out my youtube channel:
    and my website.

    Bruce, you can do what I did go to skype and rent a number its very cheap and intergrates into spreaker very well giving you a call in number directly to your computer and thus makes your callers on the air with you when they call in 🙂 THANKS SPREAKER for giving my website a voice finally
