Podcasting Q&A: Is It Too Late To Start a Podcast? How Do I Find a Cohost? How Do I Get More Polished?

From Podcasting and Platforms

Chris Spangle discusses the common concern of whether it's too late to start a podcast, how to get the first 100 listeners, and how to find a good co-host.

He shares statistics on podcast growth, active podcasts, and the saturation of different niches. Comparing podcasting to other media platforms, Chris highlights the potential for growth in the industry and encourages listeners to dive in.

He also discusses strategies for growing your podcast audience from zero to a hundred listeners, finding a co-host, and improving public speaking skills for a more compelling listening experience. The key takeaways include:

  • Be persistent and promote your content on social media, asking friends and family to listen, and reaching out to other podcasters to be a guest on their shows or invite them to yours.

  • To find a co-host, build genuine connections and friendships with like-minded individuals. Explore local meetups, and social media groups, and invite potential co-hosts to participate in your show as a trial run.

  • Consider joining Toastmasters or trying open mic standup comedy to improve public speaking skills. Practice makes perfect, so keep experimenting and refining your style behind the scenes.

Dale then asks about bridging the gap between entertainment and self-improvement within a Christian context. They explore the importance of having a clear mission statement and central theme for a podcast while also considering how to combine humor and serious content effectively. Listen in as they brainstorm potential podcast titles, too.
