So you have a podcast...very cool! You have content you put out consistently...Amazing! You promote that content on all your platforms to reach a bigger audience...Excellent! You promote that content once, and then pray the podcasting gods will take it from there and turn you into a massive star!  Sigh! 

That analogy is pretty much the path of most podcasters: Create content, promote said content through one cycle, and th...

No doubt it's your dream to be on the podcast of someone famous. Maybe it's your favourite thought leader, or YOUR coach (who's fu...

When it comes to marketing your podcast, it's an ongoing thing.

'I just don't have the time!'
How often have we said that, not really meaning it?  Have you ever noticed if you need or want something bad enough you find the time? Not only that, but our concept of time as it refers to podcasting is often misguided.  The Time Myth, as we explored in the last episode is as made up as time itself.   Today Carl and his guest take the time to bust the Time Myth, revealing how time ...

In the last episode Carl Richards and Diana Lidstone talked tech. Not really Diana's favourite subject...and she admitted TECH was holding her back from launching a podcast. Not now! She doesn't need to worry about it...she has a team that supports her and the show!  One Podcast Myth remains, and we're about to  eradicate it, for good!  Here's a quick look at the list of what those myths are:

In the previous episode Carl Richards unpacked the Content Myth. There's no shortage of content...you have boat loads of it already, you just need to know how to package it...and that's what todays' guest discovered.  She realized she was curating it for the written word. Once she explored ways to speak about her content more freely, it was like magic! And magical moments started to appear more and more in her show! ...

In the last episode Carl Richards and Bernie Franzgrote talked about how Bernie overcame the competition myth, and revealed the real competition, wasn't an external thing.

Why would anyone want to start a podcast? I asked myself that same question back around 2012, when I was first introduced to the concept. I was working full time in broadcasting and had a part time speaker training gig. One of my colleagues suggested I launch a show.

"Why?" was my not so educated response. "What will I do with a podcast?"

Since then I not only launched my own podcast, but I h...

I was certainly floored when I started conceiving the ideas for this show! With over 3 million podcasts worldwide (2023), there are shows about pretty much everything. In some cases, depending on the subject matter, there is even saturation! However, the actual art or skill or stories from podcasters and 'how they did it'...well, those shows are few and far between! And we're here to change that! So check out this th...
