This past week I was inducted into the Academy of Podcasters Hall of Fame. I am honored to be in such good company, and deeply grateful for all the kind words. In looking back at my 13 years I noticed a pattern:
Valuable content leads to relationships that lead to opportunities. The key word is VALUABLE content. Then you have to work at relationships, and you need to take advantage of every opportunity. Look back I see how:
6:00 Who are Dave's influences? Dave Barry, David Letterman, and Dan Klass
7:59 Thank God I was bullied?
9:25 Hope for all the introverts
10:05 You learn from all your failures
11:00 Content - Relationships - Opportunities
12:50 Dave's first podcast attracts Marcus Couch
14:45 Dave gets to go on the radio to explain podcasting to Music Business Radio
16:30 Marcus Couch invites me to get involved with Podshow. The Internet's first free podcast media hosting
17:25 Why it's not the tech
17:55 Dave tries to sound like Scott Fletcher of Podcheck Review
20:33 Why free media hosting drives me nuts
Podshow/Mevio 8/2005 – 4/2014 (116 months –
38.8 million dollars spent)
Podango 9/2006 – 12/2008 (27 Months)
wildvoice.com 7/2006 – 7/2009 (36 months)
mypodcasts.com 2007 – 2011 (estimated 48 months)
Audiometric.io 11/ 2012 – 8/2014 (21 months before being purchased by panoply and taken off the market).
Opinion Podcasting 11/2015-10/2017 (23 months)
The average is 45 months. Take Podshow and the 38 million out of the picture and that drops to 31 (which is close to my typical answer of three years or 36 months)
Anchor.fm was started in August of 2015. If they make it 45 months that is May of 2019. If they go 31 months that would be May of 2018. So far Anchor has burned through 14.4 M already (see https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/anchor-fm#section-locked-charts )
