What is a podcast? And how to listen to one

A podcast is like an on-demand radio show, with each podcast covering a variety of topics from Politics to Arthurian Legends… there really is a podcast for everyone. Some podcasts are one-offs whilst others form part of a regular series, much like TV shows. Read more

Can I be a guest on the podcast?

If you have a story to share, an opinion on marketing or business then I want to hear from you. Pitch your idea and we’ll see if we can make a show of it.

We’ll chat for 30 minutes on a topic, I’ll mention some interesting links or related stories, edit it to make everyone look smart then put it out on YouTube and publish as a podcast.

We record the show using webinar provider Demio. This simple software captures our video as well as anything I want to share on the screen. However, while video is important, this is first and foremost a podcast so we edit for the best audio quality and continuity.

Who produces the Something Inventive podcast?

Clare and I produce the show, along with guest interviewees. I prep all of the show notes in Google Docs, invite guests to book a date using Doodle and record the show using Demio.

Once a show has been recorded I hand over to Clare Harris for editing and adding intro music which is called ‘Goofy Vocal Groove‘ and was composed by Dave Girtsman.

Can you help me start a podcast?

If you have an idea for a podcast or need help producing your own get in touch. I can help coach you through recording, getting listed and finding guests or we can produce the whole shebang for you.

Yes we do. My audience is a mix of professionals and people starting/growing their own business. They’re interested in how other business owners overcome challenges as well as tips and tricks in marketing, business and life.

People also get a lot out of the website links, tools and ideas I have on the podcast and use them as a resource to revisit on our website.

A typical sponsorship features:

  • A mid-roll (60 second) sponsorship spot
  • I write and read the ads or you provide a script
  • A link to your website on each episode post and the podcast show notes

If that sounds interesting, drop me a line and we’ll see if we can reach a deal.
