Hello, and welcome to today’s podcasting tip. Today we are going to talk about finding great content.
I meet a lot of people who say to me, I want to start a podcast but I have no idea where to get content. And my answer is always the same — it’s all around you. You are creating it and consuming it every single day. Believe it or not, you could even be creating it while sleeping. Your dreams could be the topic of your next episode.
Most people want to make a podcast about something they are passionate about, and that means you are living and breathing content. So start by looking at yourself.
Now get out your phone. Look through your emails, your social media posts and your shared articles, and videos. Compile a document of your rants and raves, and those everyday messages, suddenly, the raw material — with a little editing and rearranging — will become scripts or at the very least give you ideas for topics or conversation.
Go through your gallery and take the audio from any videos you made while at related events, and now you have an authentic and original source of sound effects and background noise. If not sound bites, maybe mini interviews.
And those video messages your friend sent via WhatsApp when you are at your lowest point, could be powerful moments as you document your recovery. All excellent content if relevant to your podcast.
I would also bet this shiny ten pound note that you are in atleast one online groups whether its facebook, reddit or somewhere else… groups and communities are great places to find content. Jump in the relevant communities and look what people are talking about. Copy and paste topics or questions into a google doc. Then you have a list of topics and conversations as content for your podcast.
Content is all around you. So, go and use it.
