Post-interview Discussion:

Pilar: Ironically, Isaac’s podcasts run for about 5 minutes, but his was the longest interview we’ve had with a single guest.

Craig: Isaac rightly says that it’s crucially important to be constantly improving delivery on the mic in areas like phrasing, projection, intonation, engagement, the use of silence, etc. The Real Brian has also been emphasising this on his Profitcast podcast (which has now finished):

Pilar: Podcasters should focus on mic technique, structured communication and understanding the medium in which you are operating. Isaac follows a concise script for his podcasts and maximises communication with his audience. A podcaster needs to find his/her voice and decide what kind of message and connection he/she wants to deliver. How intimate do you want to be with your audience? How much of your (personal) life do you want to talk about? How much of my opinion do I want to share with others? How many podcasting ‘rules’ do you want to break?

Craig: Before you break the rules (in podcasting, music, art etc) you have to learn them and know what they are. Podcasting with co-hosts has helped improve delivery and find a voice.

Pilar: When you podcast with a co-host, you start to find out what kind of podcaster you are.

Craig: The length of podcast episodes is a subjective thing. Longer podcasts can be paused and continued later. A podcast can’t be too long, but it can be too boring. One of the most downloaded podcasts on the libsyn platform is Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History which can be 3 or 4 hours long. His podcast once received over 350,000 downloads in a 24-hour period on May 6, 2015:

Pilar: Length is part of format and length depends of what you are trying to communicate to your audience.

Craig: It’s wonderful that JPod is still a free conference that promotes podcasting and education in and around the podcasting field. As Isaac said, this will probably change in the coming years and money will become more of a focus for podcasters.

Pilar: Hopefully, there will be a wide spectrum and not two separate camps of monetize or not monetize.

Craig: There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make a living from podcasting.

Pilar: We don’t all have to be entrepreneurs. If you’re going to do anything for free, let people know! Free also has value and this shouldn’t be understated.

Craig: It’s wonderful that Jpod is free for podcasters.

Pilar: If JPod stops being free, it probably will lose attendees who are podcast listeners/fans.
