Hear how other podcasters will change their podcasting in 2013 to help reach new goals.

What I will be doing different in 2013 is to add a feature to my podcast – where I bring in an actual client and address his/her solution during the show.

Carlos Quintero from Media on Q

1. We did 12 episodes of Financial Tech in 2012 and pod faded in March. Recently, we relaunched the show with a brand new format. 10 minutes of Market Commentary by a CFP from our Credit Union. 10 minutes…that’s it. Weekly.

2. Going to launch a special version of Home Tech called HTI (Home Tech Interview) where I interview interesting people for our audience. The standard format for Home Tech is currently Round Table every week. All tech. This podcast extra will be a bit different.

3. Going to work on relaunching Enterprise Tech (all about enterprise software, ex. Oracle, Microsoft, etc) later this spring. Maybe May or June.

That is as far out as I can get at the moment.

Jim Collison from The Average Guy podcast network

I will podcast differently by becoming more focused on my topics and less on distractions. Also a more consistent schedule.

More consistent schedule and calendar of guests.


More good guests. I think good guests, and sometimes guests with a name, are good ways to build audience for my niche.

Dave Dufour from Theatre Geeks Podcast

I will focus more on being right on topic always.

SavageTechman from Digital Mancave Podcast and The Quotables

Live audio streaming some new shows with a couple of new co-hosts on a very regular basis and more closely targeting my ideal audience. Working hard to develop a more engaged audience by working on content and utilizing social media more effectively.

Mark Kelleher from Mark in Russia

I’m planning on using Google+ in my podcasting as a way to build engaging communities. We’re on some of the other networks but Google+ is an untapped resource. I’m also going to utilize Google+ Hangouts.

Nick Seuberling from Start Talking and Recording Today

By summer, I expect us to be broadcasting a vid-stream/vid-cast.

  1. Cut back from 13 podcasts to 6.
  2. Make 2013 a year of giving back by releasing premium content for free (limited time).
  3. Help other podcasters, like Richard Cleveland’s new Podcast U.

How my other podcasts will be different

  • Handing over Are You Just Watching? to my cohost Eve.
  • Get more great guests, including celebrities.
  • Not worry about episode length.
  • Incorporate feedback more “inline.”
  • Delegate more tasks.

    Hi Daniel !

    In 2013, I’m going to do two main things to podcast differently. First, I’m going to add a small segment to my shows Euterpia Radio and Euterpia Radio Rock : I’ll pick one track from 12 months earlier, and play it on the show. That is the easy thing. The second thing I’ll do to podcast differently, is to invest in podcasting gear : a condenser mic and a mixer, at least. Oh, and one third things I’ll try to do : get my girlfriend to co-host my shows with me – but I make no promesses on this :)

    Cheers, and thanks for another great episode of The Audacity to Podcat !

    • Daniel J. Lewis

      Great goals! But I highly recommend a dynamic mic instead of a condensor. What’s your budget?

      • Yannick (Euterpia Radio)

        I did set my budget at around €300 ($400), that includes a Behringer Xenyx 802 mixer, 2 t.bone SC 400 microphones, 2 Millenium MA-2050 tabletop mic stands, cables and adapters. I will eventually have to add at least one pair of good headphones on top of that.

        The the t.bone SC 400 itself costs around €60 ($80).

        Won’t a dynamic mic pick up a lot more noise ? I’m going to setup the studio in my appartement, and even though it’ll be on the last floor, it’s not gonna be really soundproof.

        • Daniel J. Lewis

          No, it’s condensor mics that pick up a lot of ambient noise.

          • Yannick (Euterpia Radio)

            Thanks for the info ! I think I’ll go for a Behringer C1 then.
