What SpaceX Webcasts Can Teach Podcasters [Episode 185]

As I was watching today’s SpaceX launch “webcast”, I found a few lessons that I think are applicable to podcasters. The population of the world breaks into two classes: People who've watched a space X launch and those who have not. If you have, you know they are a lot of fun to watch. But if you haven't, that's okay too!

  1. You're not making your podcast content for everyone. You're only making content for the people who are interested in the topic that you have to discuss.
  2. Make sure that you talk in normal language and explain what needs to be explained.
  3. Go ahead and fly your geek flag when you need to. Done right, it’s infectious!

Even if you’re in the “never watched a SpaceX launch” set, I hope you’ll pick up something from this bit of content. And if you need help with your podcast or need someone on your team with big ideas around podcasting, it’s what I do four times a week for you and all other times for my clients. Get in touch.
