How to host a successful podcast with Vicki Weinberg

Bring Your Product Idea to Life

08-12-2023 • 29分

This podcast recently won the Best Podcast Award in the business category at the Independent Podcast Awards, which was a real honour. Over the years I’ve had lots of people ask me for tips on starting a podcast. While I'm not an expert, I have been hosting this podcast since March 2020, and now have nearly 200 episodes released,  so I have learned a few things.

I thought I would share some behind-the-scenes information on how I run my podcast, in case it's helpful for anyone thinking of starting their own someday, perhaps as a goal for 2024. I’ll talk you through the process of planning the episodes, recording, editing and releasing them. I’ll also share what you need to buy tech wise (not much!).

  • An introduction to the episode and why I am recording this (01:23)
  • Who my podcast is for (03:45)
  • Why I like to have guests on my podcast (04:39)
  • The process of booking in guests, and scheduling ahead (06:41)
  • Why I batch record episodes (09:14)
  • Recording the introductions to conversations with guests (10:47)
  • Editing (11:29)
  • Outsourcing the rest of the process including transcription and show notes (12:06)
  • My podcast hosting platform, Captivate (12:51)
  • Releasing the episode, and accompanying social media, emails etc (13:24)
  • Five things that make a great podcast (14:16)
  • What do you need to buy (22:58)
