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.
