I’ve been podcasting for a long time. I debuted this show (originally as Online Marketing & Communications before rebranding after 150 episodes) back on April 29, 2010.
Since then, I’ve gone on to host, co-host , produce and supervise a stack of podcasts including the successful Wildpaw Dog Podcast, which won a European Podcasting award back in 2011 and In Focus, which is all about Liverpool FC, my first love, for the Anfield Index Podcast Network
When I started out there was very, very little information about how to start, what to buy, how to succeed with podcasting.
As the technology has become easier to use driven, I suspect, by the rapid growth of the smart phone industry, podcasting has become part of the mainstream. The Serial podcast did a lot of good for podcasting, getting the medium in front of listeners for the first time.
Nowadays, every self-respecting consultant, thought-leader, speaker or business owner is aware of what a podcast is. Heck, they may well have already started one.
An interview with Colin Gray, The Podcast Host Academy
An experienced podcaster, with strong roots in education, Colin's show, The Podcast Host , is an excellent source of podcasting tips, tricks and good old fashioned know-how. Colin’s approach is pedagogical, clear and very easy to follow. I am sure if you’re new to podcasting, his show is one you should definitely check out.
