School of Podcasting - Plan, Launch, Grow and Monetize Your Podcast

Jan 31, 2023

In today's episode of The School of Podcasting, I recount my experience at Podfest which was attended by many new faces. I share my conversation with the host of The Accidental Swingers, a podcast discussing non-exclusive relationships. I also discuss Cinemaker, a Mac-only video recording program for video interviews. Lastly, podcast hosts announced updates at Podfest. I also share my presentation.

If you're consistent and persistent in producing shows, what else is needed to continue to grow the audience?

  • Does having a seasonal podcast make for lower downloads?
  • Does podcast growth depend on the platform (media host)?
  • Could it ever be the most painful? That people don't like it?
  • Is a specific theme best or should I have a variety of topics?
  • Are there typical plateau points?


This month's question is from Jacob from the Old Men - New Games. When a host has English as a second language and may occasionally mess up a word or two, Is that a no go? Do you listen, or immediately back out?
