This is one of the most insightful shows I’ve had to date about podcasting, and it really hits home with me about how reaching and engaging people effectively. Sean is a master at marketing to people, and has taken that skill set over to podcasting in a unique way. His show is like no other, by design, and keeps getting better all the time.
Sean says that the first step in creating the way you want to structure a show is to make a list of the things you like and don’t like about the type of show you want to create. After you’ve cut out all of the things you don’t like, and be sure to include the things you do like, then you’re well on your way to a high quality show structure. From there, just start recording episodes and iterate over time. Learning by doing is the only way to go.
Having a unique voice, and staying true to it over time is the key to success, according to Sean. A lot of people are guilty of bouncing around a topic. Instead, have a laser focus on your viewpoint, and explore all of the aspects of that perspective.
Sean is giving away a really fantastic resource for all Podcastonomics listeners. One of the biggest thing all creatives have to overcome is getting past what Sean calls The Resistance. That nagging voice in your head saying that you can’t do something new and difficult. Sean has put together a great resource that we can all use to squash that voice and overcome The Resistance.
