Keeping Your Show Relevant Is All Relative [Episode 245C]

Today’s topic is relevancy, and the conversation is led by Mark Asquith.

Why talk about relevancy and what it means to working podcasters of today and tomorrow? How about:

  • The podcast landscape is vastly different than it was just a few years ago, and the pace or rapid change is increasing.
  • Big entertainment brands are entering the space, and that impacts how smaller shows present themselves
  • While consumers are growing more demanding, they’re also finding more ways to engage with their favorite things and passions via podcasting
  • Those consumers don’t care how they get their content, only that they get what they want
  • Why podcasters need to hold their heads high as they beat their drums.

And when you hear the last set of bumps, be sure to stick around to the end of the file for a little special something… that Mark probably wished I had edited out.
