A multitude of factors are converging to make now the perfect time to launch a podcast. But should you?
In the first episode of The Showrunner, host Jerod Morris explains the factors contributing to the current podcasting boon and walks you through how to decide if you have what it takes to run a successful podcast.
Jerod and a host of family, friends, and experts paint a vivid picture of the current podcasting landscape.
As narrator, Jerod takes you to …
- His kitchen, where an insightful piece of advice from an unlikely source changed how this episode began (and taught him an important lesson).
- His closet (in the interests of superior audio quality), to find out how and why his non-tech-savvy fiancee became such a huge podcast listener.
- Podcasting Utopia, or so it seems, where Jon Nastor (who will be co-hosting future episodes of The Showrunner) experienced a rocketship ride of success after launching Hack the Entrepreneur.
- Boulder, Colorado, where Brian Clark has developed New Rainmaker with education in mind but without the massive budget you might expect.
- Night Vale, to show you how surprisingly simple and cost-effective producing a great podcast can be — and what is possible when you do it right.
He takes you to many other places as well, finding the likes of Robert Bruce, Jay Baer, and Michael Hyatt along the way to provide extra insight on what the current podcasting landscape is like and who should be preparing to take advantage of it.
If you’ve considered starting a podcast but haven’t yet, this episode is for you.
If you have already started a podcast but want validation that you’re on the right track, this episode is for you too.
And if you’re neither of those people, but you enjoy rich and entertaining audio experiences, then hopefully you will still find this episode to your liking. 😉
Listen, learn, enjoy!
