Glad to have to you here Fajar. I’m excited for the opportunity to listen to your podcast.

I run the Patriots Dynasty Podcast. Myself and my brothers are going back and rewatching every game of the Patriots dynasty starting back in 2001.

Sounds interesting, Football is really the only sport you can do something like this. The right amount of games and importance of them.

Hi! I’m Gabriel from Puerto Rico.

I have been listening to podcasts for a really long time and had one on climate change very early on the history of podcasting.

Now I’m thinking of making a new podcast where I interview people doing cool stuff in Puerto Rico e.g. entrepreneurs and authors.

I’m also building a podcast host.

Hi Gabriel,

I look foward to hearing your podcast, please let us know when you launch it.

Your idea of building a podcast host sounds interesting too, please keep us update with that as well👍

Hello

My name is Dmitry Dryomov
I found a recommendation of your community at Indie Hackers forum.

I recently recorded my first episode [it’s in Russian].
I still don’t have a podcast name or a page. The podcast is about hiring and managing a team in data science

I want to use podcasting to have fun, meet interesting people and be more public.

I want to focus on having interesting people on the show. I only want to have a good enough quality of audio and do less editing and more talks.

If you have some wisdom to share, I would be happy to learn :slight_smile:

Hi Dmitry,

Welcome to the forum!

I started podcasting because I wanted to be more open too!

Do you have any specific questions right now? Or are you looking for general advice?

I guess, I want general advice if you think it’s applicable to my situation: novice podcaster, have minor experience in sound producing, love to talk, not invested in quality sound producing. I only want to record remotely. It means I have separate tracks per speaker.
I do want to spend money but only on products that will save me time per episode produced.
I found that most automatic tools for podcast sound producing can’t work with multi-channel audio.
Maybe, you know good tools of such kind?

Also, I will be glad to hear your opinion on what is important for a good podcast series.

I use Zencastr to record interviews and then use Audacity to make them into one file. I go over it in this blog post about interviewing.

What’s import to make a good podcast series? That’s a great question and one that I’ve never thought about until now.

What immediately came to my mind when I read that is preparation. The most important thing is providing value to the listener, a host only does this if they are prepared for an episode. This means having good questions to ask in an interview, not “rapid fire questions.” For a solo podcaster preparing means having an outline of topics ready to discuss.

Can you walk me through pros of Zencastr over simple Zoom call?
I like to have a one on one conversation. I tried to have a list of written questions. It worked well for me for my first episode and I definitely feel that it helped with making an episode.

  1. Zencastr is made one a single creator, not a startup.

  2. I tried to record an interview on Zoom, I struggle to find the settings. Zencastr has everything right there.

3.Zencastr is web based, no downloading extra software

  1. Zencastr has integrations like Dropbox in case anything goes wrong.

  2. Simple for guests, I believe all the need to do is click the link and their in the zoom

  3. Zencastr is podcasting software, made specifically for podcasting in mind.

No video though

Thanks for the description, it really helped me. It looks like Zoom is better fit for me
I can share Zoom settings needed for interview record.

okay, any other questions?

Maybe you know some specifically good episodes of podcasts about podcasting behind-the-scenes?

Not really. I do some episodes about podcasting. But I don’t listen to those kinds of podcasts.

Hey guys, my podcast is Whiteboard.fm where I interview new and upcoming designers around the globe :slight_smile:
