271. The Podcasting Mistakes to Avoid

Sure, hindsight is 20/20. But if you’re a new podcaster, hearing the hindsight of legends in the business is invaluable. Wouldn’t you want to know their mistakes, so you could avoid making them yourself?

On This Episode Of Should I Start A Podcast….

Even the best podcasters make mistakes. Learn from theirs, so you don’t have to make your own.

When starting your podcasting journey, mistakes are inevitable. I know I’ve made a ton! But I can promise you, I’ve learned from every single one. Messing up is how we grow, right?  However, avoiding the common podcasting missteps can make your journey a bit smoother, so you can focus on growing your show.

I gathered some of my friends, who happen to be among the greats of podcasting, to rehash some of the blunders they’ve made along the way. In this Clubhouse session, we field some questions from the audience and reflect on what we may have done differently. We don’t always agree on the production process, but every perspective is constructive.

You should never let the fear of screwing up stop you from starting your podcast. But it never hurts to learn from mistakes, even if they’re not your own. So if you want some actionable advice to start your show off on the right foot, listen up!
