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.
