047 How to Start Your Own Podcast

Here are the show notes for the most recent episode of the Christian Publishing Show.

You can listen to this episode here.

 

We have talked a lot about podcasts on this show lately, and this is the last episode of the series. Honestly I was not planning on doing one more episode but two things came up that pushed me over the edge. First, a lot of you asked questions about how to start your own podcast and secondly I found out about the first ever Spark Christian Podcast Conference.

I am particularly excited about this because while there are more Christian podcasts than any other category, there has to my knowledge never been a Christian Podcasting Conference before.

Joining us today is Misty Phillip a podcast host of the Host, By His Grace Podcast, and founder of the Spark Christian Podcast Conference.

Misty, welcome to the Christian Publishing Show!

The Course of the Week: How to Get Booked as a Podcast Guest

Once you take this course, you will know how to contact podcasters and feel confident going on their shows to talk about your message. You will learn techniques most podcast guests don’t know, techniques that took me over a decade of podcasting to learn and develop.

You don’t need to hire a PR firm for $3000 to get you podcast interviews!

You just need to know the secrets of pitching podcast hosts yourself. And, once you start nailing interviews, podcasters will start reaching out to you to invite you on their shows.

    I’m confused. This post says there is a podcast conference, even asks the question “where and when” it is, but then it lists a set of presentations/classes, with no mention of where or when. Is there a real conference, or not? If there is, where and when?

    There’s something in the human voice
    that lends the written gravitas,
    imbues the thought and prose with poise,
    confers in our hearts its abidance.
    Having heard Churchillian tones
    it’s as if he reads his works aloud,
    but much speech ascribed to dead dry bones
    is lost to us in history’s cloud.
    The commanding voice of Washington
    commanded respect and admiration,
    requisite for heart and tongue
    that was midwife to a nation.
    But with Jefferson we are perhaps in luck,
    for it’s said he spoke like a bilious duck.
