Interview: Josh Nielsen, Speaker at the Asia Pacific Podcast Conference

Josh Nielsen is the founder of Zencastr – a podcasting production tool for quality conscious podcasters.  As an entrepreneur, audiophile, and podcast lover, he is currently directing his efforts into maximizing the sound quality of podcasts everywhere.

Josh has an interest in all things business, development, and marketing.  He has worked to help many companies build from the ground up, including time at the Techstars startup accelerator in Boulder, Colorado. While a native of the US, he has been living with his family and building his business in Christchurch, NZ for much of the past year.

Josh Nielsen will be one of the panelists at the Asia Pacific Podcast Conference on February 12th – 13th, and we’re sure he’ll share his vast experience on podcasting production and sound recording with us. Here’s the interview:

What do you think is the most common trouble new podcasters run into? And what do they have to do to prevent or fix it?

I think the hardest part for new podcasters is knowing where to start. There are so many skills involved in taking a single episode to completion. You need to be an audio engineer, web developer, charismatic personality, social media promoter, etc. It is easy to get overwhelmed and give up.
My recommendation is to not worry about it all at once. Take it one step at a time. Start by booking and recording your first interview. Then figure out what you need to do next. Once you get a couple of shows recorded it will motivate you to find out how to get them published and reach the ears of your listeners.

Interview: Paul Spain, Coordinator of the Asia Pacific Podcast Conference

Paul is founder and CEO at Gorilla Technology, coordinator of the Asia Pacific Podcast Conference and is building a podcast network focused on the Asia Pacific region. The NZ Tech Podcast, which Paul co-founded, reached #1 overall on iTunes in New Zealand by its 3rd episode – and his NZ Business Podcast saw similar success. His first taste of having his voice recorded was on a reel-to-reel audio tape aged 5. He’s also run a pre-Facebook global social network (WorldDJ.com) which reached over 300,000 members, and has appeared dozens of times on TV along with radio and both local and international podcasters.

With a deep interest in technology, Paul Spain has been involved in many aspects of digital media over the last 25 years. He’s coordinator of the next Asia Pacific Podcast Conference that will take place on February 12th – 13th in Auckland, New Zealand. Here’s the interview we conducted:

What do you think is the most common trouble new podcasters run into? And what do they have to do to prevent or fix it?

I commonly come across quality podcasts, that have failed to obtain the attention and audience they deserve. This is usually due to a combination of factors – such as lack of focus on the audience and building a community, inadequate promotion and even poor naming of the podcast. Seeking support and coaching from experts can help with getting much better results.

What do you think is the most common trouble new podcasters run into? And what do they have to do to prevent or fix it?

For me the main ‘trouble’ is picking what show to do and not letting your mind take over and freak you out from doing a podcast that you love. I went podcast fishing for a whole year when I first started with shows about geeks, dads, interviewing successful people – until settling on an interview podcast about life, MyKiwiLife.com!
