If you're ready to start podcasting but not sure what to talk about, here are some tips to help you get going!
- Talk about something you really care about or know extremely well. This will help make your episodes more engaging and draw listeners with similar interests to your podcast.
- Start with something you could talk about for hours. You'll want to choose something you can talk about across multiple episodes, so make sure you pick something you genuinely love discussing.
- Record with your friends, and just have a conversation like you normally would. This is a great way to loosen up and get comfortable sharing your voice.
- Don't feel too pressured to have a consistent topic. You can also just make episodes about whatever you feel like that day. On vacation? Capture it. Got an idea? Tell your listeners. Heard a good joke? You get it.
