Why And For Whom We’re Podcasting

These two questions are so essential that we put them into this inaugural episode of Audience. If you don’t have a well thought out and defensible answer for: Why you’re podcastingWho you’re podcasting for Then stop everything else now and let’s figure this out. The answer to these two questions will guide almost all of the creative content decisions that you make with your show. Doing this will give you great alignment between the 3 pillars of a great podcast: what your audience is interested in, and specifically what your message is. Getting a high degree of alignment between these two will give your listeners the feeling that you’re talking DIRECTLY to them. Almost like you had that one person in mind when you created your show….probably because you did. Episode Transcript Speaker 1 00:04 Hi there and welcome to the first episode of the audience podcast.

Grant Funding a Podcast with Danielle Desir Corbett

Funding a podcast can be tricky. Unless you’re one of the top-rated podcasts, ads typically won’t generate all that much revenue. Paywalls are great under the right circumstances. But if you don’t already have a large following, they can be a barrier to your podcast being discovered. Enter grant funding. Yes, grants exist for podcasters, you just have to know where to find them. So Danielle Desir Corbet, founder of WOC Podcasters and host of The Thought Card Podcast, started ‘Grants for Creators’ a bi-weekly newsletter aimed at helping creators find grant funding for their projects. She chats with Stuart about what grants can do for a project and how to find the right one for your project.    Resources   Danielle’s Website: danielledesir.com/about/ NYT Story about Podcasting nytimes.com/2022/03/04/arts/indie-podcasts-fiasco-campside.html ...
