Do’s and Don’ts of Podcasting with David Mulé
Podcast producer David Mulé Rebecchi shares his Podcasting Do’s and Don’ts
If you’re passionate about communication and want to talk to the world, you will have considered podcasting. Born in the digital age, this medium keeps gaining fans, both listeners and creators. Technically, all you need to be a podcast producer is a computer, a microphone and basic audio editing skills... but to produce a successful podcast, you need to know a lot more.
David Mulé Rebecchi (@davidmule) is a podcast journalist who has worked on a range of projects for companies and broadcasters including Spanish majors: Cadena SER and Podium Podcasts. He’s also the president of MadPod, the Madrid Podcasting Association. This video shares his experience and sets out his 3 Podcasting Do’s and 3 Don’ts.
Find out what they are:
1. Stay abreast of the latest developments
Like any good digital medium, podcasting evolves all the time, so you need to know about the latest developments. It’s really easy to get left behind, so pay attention!
2. Listen to a lot of podcasts
This is really basic, but it’s also a really important tip. Listening to other podcasts is the best way to learn benchmarks that will help you create your own.
3. Improve your technical equipment
It’s normal not to want to invest too much time or money in the best possible equipment when you start out. However, as you gain experience, David Mulé recommends updating your gear to achieve increasingly better results as this will help your message reach listeners more clearly.
1. Don’t cover too many topics
Although it may be tempting to try and broach a lot of different themes to attract the widest possible audience, your podcast will work much better if you address specific topics. You’ll achieve better results by targeting a particular niche.
2. Remember podcasting isn’t radio
Although there are plenty of points in common, podcasting is its own medium, and there’s no point approaching it like radio. The language and way of interacting with the listener are very different, and you have to consider those aspects when creating your content.
3. Don’t neglect the sound quality
Podcast content is very important, but as David Mulé underlines, listening to a low-quality audio podcast is like watching a film that’s out of focus: it devalues all your work. So you need to spend lots of effort ensuring the sound doesn’t detract from the quality of your podcast.
