Brief Encounter: The Ideal Podcast Length

Short, concise, intriguing: the ideal formula?

With so many podcasts out there for people to choose from, it’s great to keep your audience tuned in and engaged. That means cutting straight to the chase. And it seems that duration really is key: the shorter, the better. Generally, listeners just don’t seem to get through hour-long episodes. In fact, it turns out listeners actually prefer podcasts to be A LOT shorter- and the stats prove this.

But as well as nailing the length, there’s also timing to think about: what’s the ideal day to publish your podcast for peak listening? In time for Saturday? Or towards the start of the week? You would be surprised! It’s all about perfect timing – in the duration of your podcast, as well as the time and frequency of publishing.

Find out what our stats and experiences reveal in this episode of the Spreaker Live Show.

How To Keep Your Podcast Topic Sounding Fresh

Exploring the different sides of your topic

How can you make sure that you never podfade or run out of things to talk about on your podcast? Most of the work you put into your podcast revolves around presenting your main topic in an entertaining and informative way – and it’s the core reason why your listeners tune in. It has to be multifaceted and provide numerous fresh angles.

While excellent storytelling skills can make anything sound interesting enough, bringing content that’s of value to your audience is what will keep them coming back. It’s all about drawing from the resources available to you, and finding those unique takes. You can refer to your listeners’ feedback and contributions, scrape podcast topic ideas from other media sources in your genre, subscribe to newsletters, set up google alerts, and run thorough keyword searches.

Learn about all the different ways you can make the most out of your podcast’s topic in this episode of the Spreaker Live Show.
