Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, October 4, 2020, and this is show number 804.
Chit Chat Across the Pond
This week our guest on Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite is Jill McKinley of the Start with Small Steps Podcast at smallstepspod.com. You may already know her from her many fantastic tech reviews for the NosillaCast as Jill from the North Woods.
I’m a fan of the Start With Small Steps podcast and I thought it would be fun to have Jill to come on to talk about what it’s like to start a podcast in 2020. All of my experience and knowledge about starting is 15 years old so I was curious about what it’s like now. We talked about why she wanted to do a podcast in the first place, what kind of hardware and software she’s using for her recordings, and how she makes her podcast feed. We get into the style of reading vs. bullet points and even into editing a little bit. We talked about community engagement and whether to obsess on download statistics. We learn from Jill how important it is to her to always give attribution to her sources.
I loved talking to Jill about this because she’s so enthusiastic about her topic and she’s a total nerd. That’s the perfect combination in my book. Look for Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite in your podcatcher of choice, and of course, you can listen over at podfeet.com/… And be sure to subscribe to the Start with Small Steps Podcast too!
