Kristy Yoder - Delegate Your Way to Success
Today's guest is yet another example of how networking works as it relates to podcasting. A former guest on a totally different show introduced me to Kristy Yoder, founder of Smart Virtual Assistants, to talk about her show called Delegate Your Way to Success. Straight from the Phillipines to the US, she started her show interviewing entrepreneurs, but pivoted her focus to now give them a platform for sharing their story, product or service. We talked today about building a community around podcast guests, tips for growing a show, how to find ideal guests and even how to monetize our shows. I learned some cool stuff, but the episode isn't about me, it's about her! After listening, find her show by searching for 'Delegate Your Way to Success' anywhere you listen to podcasts. Enjoy the listen.

Kevin Gootee - Gutting the Sacred Cow
Stand up comedian and New Yorker Kevin Gootee has started up multiple podcasts, with the most recent being focused on putting commonly loved movies on blast. Gutting the Sacred Cow pokes huge holes in the movies we've grown up with, and isn't afraid to point out the often ridiculous tropes and places where suspending disbelief is totally unrealistic. It's a blend of humor, ribbing and stomping on toes that make it a show you'll hate but will keep coming back to lol. Find it everywhere online, and also at guttingthesacredcow.com. I'm headed over there myself to see what they have to say about one of my favorite 80s movies.

Keaton Leikam - You Don't Fight Alone
Guest Keaton Leikam's podcast is all about mental health, and how banding together is often what makes people able to get through tough mental battles. Not having that community is what breaks people. His show, You Don't Fight Alone, opens with four questions, and has a unique format of just being the guest talking once the show's fully edited and published. Find Keaton's show by searching for You Don't Fight Alone anywhere online, and on literally sixteen different platforms, along with the podcast website, ydfa.org.

Noah Overton - How We Seeez It
Noah Overton and his best friend Steve decided to start up their podcast after noticing a pattern of really enjoying hanging out, partying and having discussions. Prior to the pandemic, their approach was to watch a new movie, head to a brewery later and talk about it, recording the conversation. Post pandemic, now a lot of that's not really kosher, so they've had to adapt. Listen in to find out how they've pivoted and what their show's like now, and search for How We Seeez It to listen anywhere you get your podcast fix online.

John Krikorian - Trek Profiles
A lot of guys like me and today's guest got our start in nerddom by way of Star Trek. Some others got their start in Star Wars, but we're not gonna talk about those people. John Krikorian's show is all about the notable episodes in Star Tre, of any flavor. But the show's focus isn't quite on the episodes themselves--rather the effects of the episodes. Big societal changes, meetups at conventions, and deep friendships formed, all as a result of this epic decades-old (and still somehow young!) TV show. Join John on his continuing mission, at trekprofiles.com.

Zach Bailey - Bailed Out
Met another podcaster who does shows in his vehicle too! Zach Bailey's show called 'Bailed Out - A Podcast of Musical Missteps' is centered first of all on having a good time talking about the bad side of music. The terrible songs, poor performances, and everthing that makes some songs give you The Cringe in a hurry. But also ones they recommend just to help cleanse the palate. It's a blend of music, comedy and friendship, all in a nice package. Find the Bailed Out podcast anywhere you listen online.

Gabriel Berezin - Fugues
Brooklyn native Gabriel Berezin and I got the chance to talk about how he started up his show, Fugues.

William Mankelow - The People's Countryside
William Mankelow got into podcasting without realizing he was podcasting! He used to be in radio shows, reading scripts, and had a radio show specifically for a hospital, so it already had the makings of being a podcast. Now his current show has to do with nature, philosophy, climate, sustainability and the human condition. The ultimate goal is to make it a live show, but for now, it's a great way to host environmental debates. Find The People's Countryside at thepeoplescountryside.co.uk and everywhere you listen to podcasts online.

Darren Saunders - Sixty Thousand
In 2007 today's guest had a big life change. He started off by getting into welding and then later, radio. Obvious pivot there. But, he later pivoted into podcasting, which definitely is more common. Sticking with his show being hosted on a table or a phone, his low-tech approach and intimate studio setup brings a nice, relaxing experience, designed to talk about simple subjects that he had deep appreciation of. The name of the show is 'Sixty Thousand', because that's how many neurons are devoted to mapping your ears to your brain. This unique, niche show focuses on passion and purity, dips into philosophy and the 'negative space' of podcasting, talking about what everybody else isn't bringing up. Find 60kpod on twitter, and the podcast everywhere you listen online. Listen in at the end for a sample trailer.

Wicli Gnic - The Wicli Gnic Podcast
Today's guest and I met on Reddit--which is getting to be a pretty recurrent theme--and hit it off right away. His Italian-based show called 'Wicli Gnic' combines two Italian words--Wicli for 'weekly' and Gnic, which is the squeaky sound that his bike makes. And actually, that bike is what started the show. Today he does the intro for his show by riding around between home and work, and talking about the guest and topic. Once he's settled in at home though, that's the actual interview. His show centers on dark humor

Chicago Tony V - Livestreaming to Beat Loneliness
While today's guest hasn't been a guest himself very much, the guy's got an incredible story. And wouldn't you know it, my laptop ran out of space for the recording! But we got the gist of it. Chicago's own Tony V. got his start in podcasting as a direct result of the pandemic. In his words, 'sheer desperation and loneliness' led him to start his show, and then sheer luck led him to Reddit where he uses livestreaming as a unique way to broadcast. Plus, his hat game is on POINT, son! Find him on Reddit, Monday through Friday at 7am as user libbynator and listen in to what he's got cookin'.

Zach Beach - Learn to Love
I'm here today with Zach Beach, host of the Learn to Love podcast, and what he's got going on is something that could benefit a lot of people. Many of us, myself included, aren't masters at building relationships and communicating love. We all have different degrees of experience and different levels of understanding all the categories of love and relationships. But Zach's mission in life is sharing that knowledge. And one of the ways he does it is through his podcast. On this episode we talk about how he finds guests, who the perfect listener is, a bit about the process and the motivation behind why he got started. It's been a wild time since the pandemic started, but it's turned up some interesting trends that we talk about here, regarding how people really view relationships. There are things we all do that indicate we hold it in much higher regard than we let on. Find his show by searching for 'Learn to Love Podcast' anywhere you consume the medium, the-heart-center.com for his work, or zachbeachlove anywhere on social media.

Veronica Kirin - Stories of COVID
It's been a little bit since the last time I talked with Veronica Kirin, and last time I had her on a different podcast she had just finished up her project called Stories of Elders, where she interviewed the older generation to find out what life was like for them. Giving them a chance to look back and providing a story for people to look forward to was a monumental project. Now, with COVID being the most notable thing happening in most of our lifetimes, a new project called Stories of COVID, where people share their stories about what life was like when the pandemic took hold. Socially distant, of course. Stories of COVID is set to go live soon and you can find it at storiesofcovid.co, and you can sign up to share your story as well. Also find her at veronicakirin.com and all over social, and check out her podcast creation course linked in the show notes (https://veronicakirin.teachable.com/courses/the-audacious-podcast-course/). Listen in at the end for the trailer for the Stories of COVID podcast.

Dan Toler - Relevant History
Man if I had today's guest around back when I was a kid, history class would've been a lot less boring. There's so much that we don't talk about in school about why the world is the way it is today. And I mean I get it, because it's hard to deeply cover thousands of years of it and still have time for other stuff. Dan Toler's podcast, Relevant History, talks about the more obscure wars, hidden agendas, conspiracies and betrayals that make up the fabric of our history, that often gets overlooked. There's some really cool stuff that he gets into. Each episode takes about eight hours of effort, from doing research, outlining the subject, editing and publishing. If you think history is boring, Dan can probably convince you otherwise. And if you're just starting, his recommendation is to begin with Episode 13, which is about The Battle of Castle Itter. I'll be giving that one a listen myself. His podast is on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify and anywhere else you listen, and also at his site, dantolerpodcast.com. Let's find out what we've been missing being taught in this episode.

Ben Fogt - What Day Is It?
Ben Fogt got started on his podcasting journey as a joke actually! Early in the pandemic he had surgery that kept him in bed for 3 months. And he picked up listening to podcasts to keep himself occupied. He'd noticed that a lot of people literally didn't know what day it was most of the time, and he thought, 'well it'd be funny if there were a podcast for that so that I can say, hey there's a podcast for that'. But oddly enough... there wasn't. So he started one. His first podcast is called 'Today Is...' which features quick 5 second episodes simply telling you what day it is. From there he decided to highlight the history of the small island city he lives in, close to Detroit, called 'What's the Deal, Grosse Ile?', capturing stories from the island's long history all the way back to 1776. Ben's gotten into a lot of different areas in podcasting, editing, tv broadcasts and Youtube channels that make for a really fun story that you'll have to hear because this intro's getting kinda long. The easiest way to find the 'Today Is...' podcast is by searching for him, Ben Fogt, on Podchaser. The podcast about his hometown is whatsthedealgi.com, and then an upcoming resurrection of the Dad Labs channel is coming soon at dadlabs.com. Let's jump in now.

Kyle Highfield - The 'I Know You' Podcast
Kyle Highfield is a fellow Redditor who ran across the Big Honkin' Call for Guests last month and logged in from The Netherlands to be on the show. His show started as a result of being quarantined the first time during the pandemic, and realizing that a) he was listening to a ton of podcasts and b) it's gotta be easier than he thought to get started. And so he did. There's a bunch of topics that he covers, but overall the purpose of the show is to not only get people to share their expertise, but do so with a good amount of humor mixed in. I cracked up when he told me his answer to a marine biologist's question who asked, 'how does coral eat?' The word picture he came up with was hilarious. It was totally wrong too, and the guest ribbed him about it for five whole minutes, but that's what makes it a fun show for the host and guest both. The Podcast: I Know You. The location: ikypodcast.com and everywhere you listen online, including Spotify, Apple Podcasts and many other platforms. The goal: meet really cool people and learn interesting things, while mixing comedy in for good measure. Enjoy the listen.

Julie Laurin - Interviewing for Curiosity
So apparently there's a cardinal rule that should never be broken when it comes to podcasting. And I was today years old when I found out. Apparently you're supposed to niche down when you create your show, but if today's guest Julie Laurin is any indicator, it's a cardinal rule that can absolutely be broken. And have some really cool results. When she was younger she had a passion for creating documentaries. Always with the goal of being super informative. Later in life she realized the learning curve and tech hurdles for podcasting were insanely low, and she then had the opportunity to interview people in the science, history and art spaces. It's been an amazing journey as she brings on experts, both well known and not so well known, to talk about some particularly interesting things in their respective fields. Each episode can then become a really cool talking point that she can share with others. She's already giving me ideas of people I can introduce her to as future guests. The Podcast: Planet B612. The location: planetb612.fm. The goal: Have artists, scientists and historians on the show to talk about really niche topics themselves, while not being a niche podcast itself. Enjoy the listen.

Les Zaldor - In It From The Beginning
Today's guest has been podcasting for exactly 16 years to the day! We recorded this on March 8th 2021 and he's been doing it since 2005. Through the years of slinging shows there's been a recurrent theme of music. Whether it's streaming songs online, managing a studio or interviewing musicians, it's always had the focus of music. Today, he finds guests who also happen to create free songs for use by podcasts hosts exclusively, which means he has a really unique way to find guests. They end up getting more exposure, talking about their project and having a place to share their story. Les has learned a ton about the art and science of podcasting, and I'm personally excited to keep in touch with him as I bonk my way around this new-to-me podcasting experience. The Podcast: Zaldor's World. The location: zaldor.com. The goal: Interview musicians from all over, about the kind of music they create. Enjoy the listen.

Connor of Scarecasters - What Am I Getting Myself Into Here?
Every once in awhile I get the chance to talk with two co-hosts at the same time. And every once in awhile there's a podcast that blends two wildly different themes that don't seem like they'd fit, but it does anyway. Today, it's both. In this case, it's taking the macabre, dark parts of humanity... and laughing about it. It's funny and scary how I ran across today's guests but after hearing about their show, I gotta do it. I gotta listen to at least one episode. Maybe you'll want to as well. I'm not sure what I'm getting myself into here but, I gotta find out. The Podcast: Scarecasters. The location: Spotify, iTunes and anywhere you listen online, and their website, scarecasters.com. The goal: skillfully blend comedy with crime and bring a unique show that's sure to make you feel... a little weird? I'm giving it a listen soon, hope you do too. Let's get started.

Jason Portizo - On Beers and d20s
Jason Portizo's been in the podcasting game for awhile, and has the hardware to show for it. Found myself geeking out a bit at what all he's accrued over the years. Back before 2015, he was fully immersed in the musician and band scene as an audio engineer. But when the studio closed, he looked around and said to himself: wow I've got all this hardware lying around, I should start a podcast! Right now he's got multiple shows, but the main one is all about traveling to various breweries, and interviewing the owners there about their brews and how they got started. It's a video-based show that they bring all their gear and do all the setup onsite. Another show starting soon is about role playing games, and takes place in the world of Dungeons and Dragons. Real time play, nerds and beer on tap, can't go wrong. The brewery podcast is called 'Flight and a Pint' and can be found at flightandapintpodcast.com. The D&D themed show is called 'Curmudgeons and Dragons', Google for more info. We'll talk about how he finds guests, edits and produces the show, along with having an audio tour of his studio. Let's get started.

Rocky Powell - Wild Nights with Rocky Powell
Fellow Redditor Rocky Powell and I got the chance to talk about her show, and it's really unique. She shared how her background as an actress and in improv, combined with everything that happened due to the pandemic, led to her starting up her show. She'd sat on the idea for two whole years before pulling the trigger and becoming a full fledged podcaster. She hasn't left her comedy roots though, and bring humor and sharp wit to her shows, along with helping her guests feel comfy sharing their stories. And, it's helped her boost her network in the comedy space, all without leaving home. The Podcast: Wild Nights with Rocky Powell. The location: Spotify, Google Podcasts, Youtube and anywhere else you listen. The goal: Have guests on to share wild stories that happened to them. Got a wild story to share? Get with Rocky and she may invite you on. Let's jump in now.

Kris Ball - Think About Eurovision
It's a tale as old as time, as far as 2020's concerned. The pandemic put his retail job on hold, so he bought a mic so he could pass the time during lockdown. Used it for music and for reading poetry at first, but after awhile, Kris Ball realized he really wanted to start a podcast. When he put out a notice for a cohost and found one with similar tastes in music, it was a match. Think About Eurovision is a podcast where Kris (A British Eurovision Fanatic) and Kim (A Canadian Eurovision Newbie) take a deep dive into the Eurovision Song Contest one year at a time. He shares stories about how they got started, what Eurovision is all about, and an interesting way they were able to find some guests. They've been podcasting for about a year, and as long as the contest keep going, they'll have plenty to talk about. Wanna get familiar? Head over to thinkabouteuro.vision in any podcast app, and start with the 2014 episode.

Chloe and Monica - The Podcasting Odd Couple
Brand new hosts and first time guests Chloe and Monica decided to take a HUGE risk and come on the show to talk to me about their show. And apparently the risk paid off. They got a wild hair to start up their podcast when they realized they could be sharing their conversations with the world. I mean, they think they're both interesting, so maybe the rest of the world would too! It's become a podcast containing a blend of deep topics and a little bit of wild and crazy subjects once in awhile. They're polar opposites--one does editing and one does design. One's an introvert and one's an extrovert. One's into conspiracy theories and taboo topics and the other... is growing into it :) But overall, their goal is to affect the lives of people when things are still largely shut down and people aren't able to meet like they used to. It's surprising the power a podcast has to foster relationships, and these two podcast hostesses have just dipped their toes into the power they have at their fingertips. And I don't think they quite realize it yet. The Podcast: Call Her Average. The location: almost everywhere you listen, including Spotify and iTunes. The goal: Share messages with basically their past selves, about what young girls go through, and build a deeper friendship with each other in the process. Let's listen in now.

Robby Slaughter - Got Three Minutes? You've Got Time for a Podcast
This was the shortest and yet most complete podcast that I've done in awhile, and it's thanks to today's guest. Robby Slaughter answered the call on Reddit to share about his podcast on my show, and it's such a unique approach to podcasting that I can't help but see how I can adopt it for my own shows. His episodes are always three minutes long, and feature some neat or uplifting info. And at three minutes, the episode length is easy to consume. I'll even include a full episode of his at the end. The Podcast: Simply Inspiration. The location: simplyinspiration.me, and anywhere you listen to podcasts online. The goal: Share inspirational stories or history in just three minutes. Before this intro gets too long, let's have a listen to the conversation.

Anthony Milan - How 'How I Built This' Led to 'Art We Like'
Back in 2017 Anthony Milan and his best friend Camden were on a road trip, and Camden said, 'hey you mind if I put on a podcast?' And that's what kicked off Anthony's passion for the podcasting craft. Podcasts were what got him through incredibly boring days at work. But as a musician he realized he had all the hardware to pull off a podcast. He and his friends would also get together after watching movies at the theater, and stand around discussing it. The result was putting the two ideas together to create a unique podcast. Their show delves deep into all kinds of art, talking about what they like, and sometimes what they don't like. With Anthony being the even keeled co-host and Camden constantly pushing the envelope, it makes for an excellent show both for them and for guests to come on and discuss the intricacies of different art styles, and even ask the question of, 'What even IS art?'. From books and movies to puzzles and even pizza, almost everything can be considered art. The Podcast: Art We Like. The location: artwelike.podbean.com and anywhere else you listen to podcasts. The goal: Discuss what they like and what they don't like about all manner of art, and enrich listeners with deep history of how that art came to be. Enjoy the listen.

George Faulkner is a musician who has an Audio Engineering degree, and working at IBM's corporate communication team blended together to drop him into the deep end of the podcasting world. Bring all his experience together to bang out a podcast for his boss over a weekend led him to become the person in charge of all podcasting for IBM.

Jeremy Cline - Ex Nihilo Podcasting and Career Transitions
Today's guest Jeremy Cline got started in podcasting about the same time I did actually, which is pretty cool, late 2019. And it was his first foray into starting a new business. In his words, he went about this backwards because he started a podcast -before- starting a business. But because of that, he's got some really interesting perspective over people who do it the 'right way'. Starting from the ground up, we talk about how he found his first guests, and refined the process of editing and publishing, to make it into an incredibly helpful resource for people today. The podcast: Change Work Life. The location: changeworklife.com. The goal: share stories of people who have made crazy career transitions, and help people grab life fearlessly and plunge into wild new areas in their own career. Is that you?

Daniel King - Snippets of Different Lives Lived
Daniel King has really hit on something big with podcasting. Too often we amble through life not really being aware that people around us have deep experience. It's almost like everybody else is an extra in a movie starring Us. But everybody's got a story. While studying abroad, Daniel used to listen to podcasts while traveling to and from his destinations, but when coming back to the States, fell out of the habit. Getting a job at Amazon delivering packages reintroduced the passion he had for listening. A fellow redditor inspired him with a podcast format of simply inviting people on to share their story, or something that really interested them. The result is his podcast. Each episode features an hour long conversation with a complete stranger, about what interests them and their experience in life. In a way, it's like living another life an hour at a time, which to be honest, sounds pretty frickin cool. The podcast: Across the Pond. The location: Spotify, Anchor and iTunes. Just look for the lilypad icon. The goal: Give guests a chance to share an hour's worth of their life and experience, and the the things that excite them the most. Is that you? Listen in or get with him to guest on the show. Let's get started.

Maximilian Clark - Comic Nerds, Get Ready to Geek Out!
When I was a kid I loved reading comic books. The detail, the story arcs, the character development. Today I got hit in the face with nostalgia. Maximilian Clark and his entorage of nearly 60 actors and writers have created a podcast which does deep worldbuilding in the comic book universes that we all grew up with. Stories in the format of public radio, with different segments, news, and even advertisements, further immerse you in the world of comic book lore. There's a lot going on in backwoods towns in the midwest, all up and down the coast and almost everywhere except North Dakota. The Podcast: Superhuman Public Radio. The location: anchor.fm/spr.

Stevie Din - Howfur Much Tae Let Mike Tyson Chap Ye Oot?
What a unique podcast and what a unique guest. I think Stevie Din is the first guest I've ever had from Scotland, and hearing how his podcast came about had me smiling the whole time. Starting from three guys sitting around the TV watching football, during commercials they'd ask each other ridiculous questions. Questions like: 'hey if you could blow up the stadium, and nobody would know... 2 million pounds? Would you do it?' And I'm sitting here going 'whaaaaaaat?' the entire time I'm hearing this! Like, what the heck kind of question is that? But it's resulted in a really cool podcast that gets people working their imagination and being crazily entertaining. One question they've asked a guest is: If you could get one million pounds, but every day when you wake up, Mike Tyson had 30 seconds to try and knock you out, would you do it?' Well, would you? I personally wouldn't, I need my face for work, but maybe you'd take the challenge. It's a hiliarious podcast that will keep you hooked. The Podcast: Extreme Polls. The location: available anywhere you listen. The goal: ask interesting 'what if' questions about what you would do for a certain amount of money. Also: If you're listening to this and you happen to be Stone Cold Steve Austin, lemme know, this guest wants to talk to you.

Kon Krell's been inspired by video games and podcasting for a long time, and his podcasting journey started 10 years ago. While working at GameStop a friend approached him about co-hosting on his show. At a time when not many people in Germany knew what podcasts even were, it was a wild decision to join up. But the rest is history. On their show, they run with particular themes found in video games, news about the industry, and anything else that comes to mind with these guys. Deep down, it's a podcast about what's interesting to them, and things that matter to the world. And it's resulted in a lot of spinoff podcasts. It's a great way to podcast-ify normal conversations that they have amongst themselves. The Podcast: The Pixelburg Podcast. The location: Found everywhere you listen online. The goal: Just having conversations with friends about what's going on in their world, and give you a peek into their lives. Enjoy the listen.

August Acker - Let's Get That Bread, Son!
Years ago, today's guest August Acker worked in the service industry. When he was back in the kitchen, he'd listen to a ton of podcasts about gaming, with a sprinkling of history. One day he thought: I can do this. And as inspiration often does, it kicked off his show. Although the name of the show doesn't have anything to do with the topic, the unique format of using video games themselves, and talking -about- video games, makes this a really cool show. Listen in for tips about how he and his co-host Greg bring their show, and what their weekly cadence looks like. The Podcast: Bread Radio. The location: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Podcast Addict, and breadradioshow.com. The goal: talk mostly about gaming, the gaming industry, and sometimes some wild tangents to mix things up. Check out the conversation coming up now.
