Building your podcasting audience is a constent struggle. Even when your doing good, you want to do better! Tyler Smith is the host of Battleship Pretension, a podcast that delves deep into the structure and theory of film. Co-host David Bax (absent) and Tyler have built their podcast for the last 6 years and still struggle to get it to a place they are happy with. This is a common theme amongst podcasters, What defines a successfull podcast, A small legion of loyal listeners or is it just a numbers game? Does a large number of downloads define success?
Of course our guest is the host of a movie podcast so there this episode is layered in a bit of film talk but we also talk Equipment as well as spend some time on how to market a podcast. This is an always changing, ever evolving creature in the podcasting world. If there is one way that will always show results, big or small, seems to be the guest host. With a guest host brings the possiblity of their fans following them to the show and if they like what they hear, perhaps they'll subscribe and stick around.
If you're a smart podcaster you're always learning and always adapting. If you're a new podcaster...hit the subscribe button and listen to this episode and the episodes that have come before it. Everyone runs thier show a little bit different. It's not really what's right and wrong (don't get me wrong, there are both) but it's how you use the information handed to you and make it work for your show!
As always, we'd love to hear from you!

Limited Release is a podcast about all things webseries. Candice and Nick come on over to Monkey Poo Studios via Skype to fill us in how they run thier show. This is an interesting listen for those that want to do a show with barely any Post Production. They teach us how to get all your sound files at the ready and play them as you record. How do you feel about editing? Some think it's a must...others don't. We discuss this and so much more.

Radio Drama Creator/Writer/Producer of the awesome We're Alive! Podcast joins us to talk about his show. We get a behind the scenes tour of how he produces his show. We talk screenwriting for the radio drama, he gives us insite as to how he schedules his team of sound designers, actors and editors.
The great thing about his story is he started out small just like all of us. He had a dream of telling a great story and built his audience by word of mouth. 20 listeners here...another 30 there. It took a while for him to reach the audience he has now. Millions of downloads to be exact. Hard work pays off. We're Alive is now part of the Nerdist Network and deservedly so.
We want to hear from you! Subscribe to Podcasting101 on iTunes or like us on Stitcher Radio. Let us know what you think of this podcast.

Podcasters using Skype for their interviews will want to listen to this one. The hosts of Beyond The 140, a play on the amount of characters allowed on Twitter, run thier whole podcast off of Skype. They are both in 2 seperate states. They've never even met. Every week they invite someone who's "Twitter Famous" to come on their show and have a chat. We also talk a lot about scheduling a show. Keeping in constent contact with the guest leading up to the interview is key. Having a Pre-show call is also very benificial. It helps all 3 get close like freinds. This show's in the interview.
@IAmDelFreaky and @JCWisdomNuggets have got a lot of great nuggets (pun intended) to share with first time podcasters or any podcaster for that matter. If you're looking to do more interviews or want a good template to create for you to manage your show's upcoming interviews then you can learn a lot from these guys!

Ben stops work on his Higgs Boson and climbs out of his Black Hole to talk Science and Podcasting with us! If you're at all familiar with "The Big Bang Theory" both the TV show or the real deal...then you must check this episode out!
We chat about getting interviews with the big people and how that could disrupt the flow of your podcast...or not. Depends on thier interest. How important the regular release of a show is to your audience and how to go about building said audience.
The interesting thing about Titanium Physicists Podcast is that it's all done over SKYPE. Ben's co-hosts and guests are scattered across the globe so he talks a great deal in putting a show together via different kinds of editing software.
This is both a fun, funny podcast with a ton of information thrown at you. So get out your notepad and take notes because Ben is a great teacher and he loves giving tests!
