    Better Podcasting #269 - Keeping The Passion for Your Podcast

    Ideas Aren't Always Original (and that's ok)

    Ideas Aren't Always Original (and that's ok)

    With so many podcasts in the world, it can be hard to come up with an original podcast idea. Does that mean you should still create your podcast? We think so. In this episode we discuss some of the reasons why we think it's ok to create a podcast that has a theme that has been created already, some of the considerations you should have, and some of the ways we think you can help put your own unique spin on the topic.
    In this week's Better Podcasting download, we discussing some recent changes we've seen discussed about Libsyn.

Up-To-Date Information

Stephen and SP really speak from experience. With too many podcasts to count, they have plenty of notches in their belts. They know equipment, and they know how to help, and can relate to people who want to really hone the craft of podcasting. Thanks, guys! Keep it up.

Great Tips, Great Rapport!

The hosts really love what they do and organize their topics well. It’s refreshing to have a “podcast about podcasting” that isn’t trying to look at the angle to monetize. I’m working my way through all of the episodes and hope to launch my own podcast in a few months. With these two guys in my corner, I am beginning to think it might come true! Thanks, Stephen and SP for a great show.

Don't waste your time

Mindless chatter back and forth... too bad bc the hosts obviously have much knowledge to share, but they waste sooo much time trying to chat and be funny. Sorry guys, not funny. And btw kinda hard to take ya seriously when ur using a name like Stargate Pioneer or whatever childish moniker it is. Just not cool...
