Courtney Calkins, the man, the myth, the legend from the Quadcast Podcast joins me today for a discussion on being an authentic host. It's what attracts us as listeners, and it's what will attract listeners to you as a podcast host. Bring the energy!
We also discuss methods to prevent "Pod Fading" and social media tactics in building your audience. I'll give you a hint, be social!
Never stop learning or trying to master your craft. Courtney talks about bragging when he first started that he never edited his show. Over the course of producing his shows, he's taught himself how to create smooth transitions, and segment bumpers. He loves placing music beds through out the course of an episode. His show has become highly produced. I think it's an aural work of art.
Podcasting is one of the few forms of entertainment where you can not only build relationships but form solid friendships! If you're producing your podcast, I'm sure you're hoping to be able to give something to the listener, but if you allow it, the listener will give something back. Podcasting can be a fun filled personal journey of discovery. It can be therapeutic. Be transparent and honest with your audience. You'll be a better host, and you'll have a better show because of it.
Courtney is a self taught indie podcaster with the production value of an NPR show, but with the energy of an afternoon morning show! It's talk radio at it's finest. It's a podcast about the podcaster.
I for one think it deserves a subscription on your playlist!
Also in this show, I begin production...errrrr...construction on the new Monkey Poo Studios project! More information to come in the coming weeks.
Keep listening....and keep podcasting!

Aaron Mahnke from the world wide phenomenon podcast known as Lore is interviewed in this episode. Aaron takes us from what was a simple (almost deleted) mistake, to a podcast that is now an upcoming television show, with a full season coming to Amazon Prime. Lore is about to become a book series too.
Listen to how one podcaster went from just wanting to tell stories....to living a dream! The man actually admits to having to sometimes pinch himself.
I'll be honest, I was extremely honored to spend more than the 30 minutes we had booked talking to Aaron. He's kind, intelligent, and very generous. I hope that everyone who listens to this episode learns something and is inspired to keep podcasting, or to continue on.
You can find Lore wherever you listen to podcasts. Find Aaron over at @amahnke and say hi!
I also have a quick "How Has Podcasting Changed Your Life" story from Ran Levi. Another podcaster who went from podcasting, to becoming a respected person in his field. He's been on TV. He's written books. Podcasting has indeed changed his life for the better and I'm so happy he shared his story with us! You can find Ran on twitter at @RanLevi

In this episode of Podcasting 101 I get a chance to meet face to face with a fantastic story teller, Paula Allen. This is something I hope to be doing more often with this show. Meeting podcasters, and talking all things podcasting in person.
Paula has been podcasting for well over a year now, but only releasing episodes now for just over 6 months. Lot's of practicing. Lots and lots of tape!
We discuss everything from her evolution of recording stories, to creating a podcast revolving around her passion for live music, and all the work that goes into traveling from venue to venue, to meet with live musical acts, to get true and honest stories for them.
She is so committed to podcasting and the music scene she is actually building herself a mobile podcasting studio that she will take with her to music festival's all across Canada.
If you're looking to be inspired to start podcasting, or get rejuvenated by someone who is so in love with podcasting, then this episode should do the trick!
