Listen: I Should Start a Podcast

Making a podcast is easy with Anchor, but you may still have some questions about getting started, choosing a format, or promoting your show. We've created this podcast to help you out along the way! 

1. What is a podcast anyway?

Say you upload your latest podcast episode, give it a title, and publish it. Your listeners get that episode automatically on their phones, in all sorts of apps, on all sorts of devices, all over the world. How? Why? What kind of magic happens when you hit that publish button?

2. Your podcasting questions, answered

This week, we're changing things up and answering your questions in a special Q&A episode.

3. Getting the word out

After you’ve published an episode or two, and you’ve really got your rhythm down, you’ll probably want to start thinking about how to really find your audience, and grow your podcast. We’re talking about marketing. Today, we talk to Anchor’s marketing team about how to get the word out about your show.

4. Packaged with care

You’ve got your show recorded, you’ve spent hours putting the finishing touches on it, and it’s time to sit back and enjoy the fame, fortune, and critical acclaim that your podcast deserves. But wait! You’ve forgotten the sexiest part: metadata and SEO. Today, we’re talking about packaging your show to give it the best chance for success.

5. Conversations and interviews

We explore the other voices on your show: cohosts, guests, and how to approach an interview. Plus, we hear some conversations from around Anchor.

6. Show structure

On this episode, we talk about how to structure your show and come up with a great format.

7. Recording and microphones

You've got the idea, and now it's time to record it. What mic should you use? Will your phone sound good enough? What does "cardioid" mean? We talk about these questions and more on today's episode.

8. What's your podcast about?

It’s pretty simple to record a podcast and get it distributed really quickly. But the part that can be the trickiest is just getting started, and having an idea of what your podcast actually is. So that's what we're talking about today.

Looking for something we didn't cover?
