Because podcasting is the best way to leverage your curiosity.
Because a podcast lets you explore the true final frontier: your perspective.
And because the barrier to entry has never been lower. There’s no gatekeepers. There’s no network execs telling you what to say. It’s just you, a microphone, and your limitless curiosity.
But even though it’s easier than ever, it’s a lot of work to create a podcast that people remember. But that’s exactly how they’ll remember yours: because you put in the work to make it memorable.
Conversations spark insight, connection, and forward momentum. A good conversation is a collaboration between three people. The host, the guest, and the audience participate in making something remarkable.
You can host a podcast.
Which is why I’m starting a new video series called Paul Teaches Podcasting. I’ll be posting at least two videos a month on all things podcasts. Expect tutorials on…
- The best practices of hosting a podcast
- Stalking your guests (aka doing your homework)
- How to have a juicy conversation
- Getting comfortable on camera and with a mic
- How to come up with questions on the spot
- and loads more…
I hope you’ll check it out. And I hope it’ll move you to picking up that mic, reaching out to your favorite people, and hitting record.
Here’s a quick video to get you started.
And if you have any questions about podcasting, reach out to me on Twitter. I love talking about this stuff. I’d be happy to help.
P.S Thanks to Robbie Crabtree for helping with the video.
