Happy June! PLAYFUL CHINESE Podcast update.
I was off the track with the production for a while then back in 2021. In December 2021 I decided that I need to pick it up again and build consistency.
So I podcasted daily for 30 days. It was very challenging for the first 10 days then things got easier. It was a good experience.
- My episodes are mostly under 10 minutes. They are teaching episodes.
- It is a host-on-mac format.
- I started a document to plan the topics ahead of time. I also saw the pattern of the content I was building. Then a template was born. This template made everything simpler and less overwhelming.
After the 30-day challenge, I resumed the weekly posting schedule in 2022.
As of June 2, 2022
I have released a total of 90 episodes.
Teaching episodes: 86
Interview episodes: 4
All-time downloads: 33, 453
Unique Listeners Last 7 days: 202
My goal is to produce and release 104 teaching episodes at the end of August. I have 18 episodes to go.
Why 104 episodes?
That means a listener can listen to 2 episodes a week for a whole year!
After 104 episodes of the teaching episodes, I will take a break from the teaching episodes and share interview episodes.
A New season for Intervew episodes
I am very delayed with the editing of the interviews that I did over time. So, this is a way to clear my interview “inventory.”
There will be resistance. I know since I saw it before and it will show up again.
So the idea is that I must release all the interviews I have on hand before I can move on to produce new teaching episodes.
How should I release these interviews?
Should I release these long-form interview episodes on the weekend or on weekdays? I am still wondering.
I am currently using Simplecast.
If I start a new podcast I am going to be charged double.
Are there better options?
I am currently using Zoom.
What’s your recommendation?
