Why (& How) You Should Start A Podcast

Everyone has something to say. And we are in a time when people are taking in more audio content then ever before.

Millions of people are checking out Podcast every day. Places like Spotify have made podcasts a huge focal point.

So, why should YOU start a Podcast???

If you have a hobby.

A thing you love to watch.

Listen to.

Talk about.

Collect.

Do.

Build.

Create.

If you have a small business or dreams of a business…

No matter how small or large the niche is, there is an audience for you.

Whether that’s cooking or 80s hip hop or independent wrestling or current events, you can talk about these things, promote it, and gain listeners and a fan base.

A different reason to start a Podcast is to share your story. 

It can be about parenting. Or being in the workforce or an entrepreneur or having a side hustle. 

It can be about your ups and downs in life.

There are people out there that can always relate to what you are going through, and that in turn can help you and them out. 

I think you should start a Podcast. Whether that’s to talk about a hobby or passion or to talk about business or to tell your story.

Audio is how we, as extremely busy people, are taking in our information and entertainment. And whether you have 1 listener or 1 million, it’s worth giving it a shot!

I personally use ANCHOR.FM to record, set up, and distribute my podcasts.

My process is extremely simple:

  1. Record my audio using the Voice Memos app in my phone.
  2. Upload those memos as a New Episode in the Anchor app
  3. Create a title and description
  4. Hit Save & Publish

That’s it! Anchor basically does the rest in terms of getting it to other platforms, like Spotify, ITunes, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, etc…

I listen to ALOT of podcasts (probably more than I listen to music).

Some of the ones I check out regularly are:

Thr33sCo Podcast (Friends of mine. They talk a lot of current events)

GaryVee Audio Experience (Business/Mindset)

Joe Budden Podcast (Current events, mostly in the hip hop culture space)

Chasing Excellence (Fitness / Mindset)

Crime Junkie (Murder / True Crime stories)

New Day Pod (Wrestling Group telling stories)

Do you listen to podcasts? Which ones are in your rotation?
