    So before you buy the latest gear, don the headphones, and start sprinting towards your dreams of podcasting glory, I share some questions you should ask yourself to work out whether you should start a podcast.

    How to get multiple pieces of content from one podcast episode

    How to get multiple pieces of content from one podcast episode

    Releasing a podcast episode is already a pretty involved process so I'm sure you're not looking for more things to add on your to do list. But if the only content you're creating is the actual episode you're missing a huge opportunity.

    If you're going to put that much time and effort into releasing an episode you want to squeeze as much content out of that time as possible.

    So, in this episode I share how you can turn one podcast episode into multiple pieces of content which can not only help your workload but also help you promote your show.
