The Future of Podcasting


[Editor's note: Please check out the blog post for the editorial cartoon by John Cox & Allen Forkum, Instagram photos, and my tweet.]

After doing some introspection, listening to fellow podcasters on different topics (e.g., hobby versus indie podcasters, and so called procasters / mainstream media radio broadcasters), and checking my book plan, I have decided to mix it up a bit and test a new podcast format and I will develop my workflow, over a period of time.

This post has been percolated for a couple of days, so I want to say cheers to the attendees at the podcasting conference, Podcast Movement.

As my thoughts on the future on my podcasting have been sinking in and I have "chewed" on the challenges with the workflow of EGO NetCast, I stumbled upon a transcription service called Trint, thanks to Fizzle's blog post (10 Killer Links for Entrepreneurs in 2017) for Fizzle Show podcast, episode 226.

After I have finished tinkering and pondering, I have to catch up with the backlog of my guests provided by PodcastGuests.com.

 

In the pipeline:

Through the grapevine: 

  • A guy who picked my brain in a positive way asked me about the optimal length of a podcast. He will launch his podcast in September.
  • I have become Nita Silverspjuth’s web PT, and she will launch her podcast, Management Studio (in Swedish), in September.
  • I am working with a couple of members of the Swedish Civil Protection Association, in Gothenburg, as they will start their own podcast on the notion of being prepared for 72 hours
  • In November I will talk about the future of podcasting regarding new technologies, trends, and the potentialities for the podcast industry, at a podcast conference in Stockholm. The talk will be for 40 minutes with 5 minutes for Q&A. The target audience is communication professionals (marketing managers, public relation officers, etc.)

You could say that this is the tangram puzzle of podcasting!
