With Podcasting now becoming mainstream, what is the future of this medium? To answer this question I spoke with one of the original B2B podcasters, Minter Dial who has produced a weekly show since 2010 with over 350 episodes to date.

I first met Minter in 2012 and have been a guest on his show twice before.

Minter first appeared on Series 1, episode 2 of the podcast to speak about Ethics and AI, so we were delighted to have him back as a veteran Podcaster to provide some excellent insights into how he got into podcasting, and why you should (or should not) start one and podcasts he listens to.

We covered a number of topics, including:

  • What got you into podcasting?
  • Has Podcasting replaced Blogging?
  • Don’t launch a podcast without a purpose
  • Think about why you’re doing a podcast
  • Will Podcasters become the new influencers?
  • What can brands be doing with Podcasts?
  • How do you produce a weekly show?
  • Do you have a favourite guest?
  • How do you find great guests?
  • What should Podcasters avoid?
  • What was the last Podcast you listened to?
  • Making sense with Sam Harris Podcast
  • What is the intellectual dark web
  • How do you discover new podcasts?
  • What 3 things should companies consider when starting to Podcast?
  • Internal Podcasts for internal comms
  • Why keep your Podcast internal?
  • Who should I interview next and why?

Three things for next week

1. Get the right equipment
2. Levelator audio software
3. Listen to other podcasts
