I started this last year and I want this to be an annual
event. I ask my audience, "If you could only listen to one podcast
what would it be, where is it, and WHY do you listen to it. Thanks
to everyone who sent in their answers. I want to thank Ray Ortega
for alerting me to a post from Seth Godin that sates,
“There’s no such thing as a niche that’s too small if the people
care enough. If you think you need a bigger market, you’re
actually saying that the market you already have doesn’t need
you/depend on you/talk about you enough.You might not need a bigger
niche. You might only need to produce more value for
those you already serve.”
With people choosing the following podcasts over all others, one
can assume they are delivering tons of value.

As I listened to theses clips, I listened and
made notes. When I put it all together, here is how it broke down.
These are the qualities that people mentioned most. These numbers
indicate (according to the 50ish people who replied) how important
the following topics are.
If you combined funny and entertaining, that would be 47% (for me
if I'm laughing I'm entertained). That would mean
49% Value (things I can use, easy to understand)
32% Personality (objective, chemistry, authentic, objective)
32% "Deep Dive" (in depth information)
15% Behind the Scenes (info you can’t get anywhere else)
11% Inspiring (encouraging, kept me positive)
11% Stories (people love stories)
9% Voice ("I love their voice").
I have said (since 2005) your podcast is not about you, it’s about
the audience. If you are a radio station, your call letters are
WIFT (what’s in it for them). Find out what they want and deliver
it in an entertaining and encouraging fashion, and you will connect
with your audience.
A HUGE thank you to all my listeners, but a special thank you to
everyone who called in with their responses
