Hi there! My name is Aaron. I made this show to help people like you make a great podcast. If you're interested in learning about podcast production, storytelling, recording gear, growing an audience, getting better at communicating and speaking, overcoming the hurdles, connecting with your listeners, expanding your personal and professional network, and other things like that, this is the show for you. Since 2012, I've been lucky enough to work with many great podcasts, including shows from Dribbble, seanwes, 5by5, SVS Learn, Shoptalk, CodePen, and more. This show contains nearly everything I've learned about podcasting in the past 10 years, and I'm still making updates and new episodes as I learn more. Thanks for listening, and happy podcasting!
This episode is for those of you who are thinking about starting a podcast. You're tossing around ideas in your head. You're wondering, “What kind of format should my podcast be? Solo, co-host, interviews, or something else?”
I want to start by saying that there is no rule that says you have to choose a single format and stick with it. You can switch it up once in awhile if you want. It's pretty common for someone to deliver a short monologue before interviewing someone.
The right format for your show will depend on your goals and what you enjoy. Each format comes with it's own set of challenges, so that's what I'm going to talk about in this episode—the Pros and Cons of the different podcast formats.
