How to Listen to Podcasts…To create a better podcast.
I probably listen to more hours of podcasts on a weekly basis than the average person thanks to a lonely work situation that allows me to plug in my earbuds and consume hours of episodes without interruption. I intend to cover various styles and techniques I’ve found effective in a variety of podcasts that keep me engaged and enhances the listening experience. Especially, I plan to introduce various portions of podcasts to give examples of: introductions; music; humor; advertising reads; self-promotion; length; interview styles; voice, volume, and clarity. It’s okay to steal great ideas from podcasts to spice up your own podcast.
