Did you know that there are currently over two million podcasts? Not only that, but roughly a quarter of Americans listen to at least one podcast a week?
Podcasts continue to grow in popularity, and due to last year's pandemic and subsequent social distancing measures, their popularity has only skyrocketed. It seems that the main question around podcasts has shifted from “do you listen to podcasts?” to “do you have a podcast?”
If you have considered starting a podcast before, now might be the perfect time to hop on board. Whether it's to highlight your business, or simply for creative fun, there are bound to be people out there interested in listening to what you have to say.
In fact, we here Idaho State University’s Continuing Education and Workforce Training know the benefits that having a podcast can bring. Around two years ago, we created our own podcast. titled CEWT Talk
CEWT Talk was started on the premise of bringing on entrepreneurs, instructors, and members of the Pocatello community for a discussion-- the ‘catch’ being that episodes are only 20 minutes in length. (In time, this has proven to not always be the case, but we try!) CEWT Talk is now into its third season, and we have published over 100 episodes!
In the last two years of producing and publishing podcasts, CEWT’s team members have learned a thing or two along the way.
And now, we want to share some of the things we learned with you! In this five-part special series of CEWT Talk, Jason Batalden and Paul Dickey share their experience during the creation and production of CEWT Talk. This series will lay out the groundwork for podcaster novices on how to get started in the creation of their own podcasts. (Yes, this is a Podcast About Podcasting By Podcasters. Yes, that's in capitals because that's the name of the podcast. It's great, right?)
“[CEWT hopes] that we can inspire people to start their own podcast, and realize that if we can do it, they can also,” said Dickey.
