            If I were to start a podcast

Hello creative community,

I am touching base to ask you for some help and feedback today.
 I have been doing some planning for the year ahead and a project that has been on my list of things I have always wanted to do keeps coming back into my mind… starting a Podcast. A podcast all about creativity. 

So I would like your feedback on what you would like to hear from me or what you think I should discuss. (Survey Link is here: https://forms.gle/PNQgFGbbDfQPZW2RA)

Firstly – what is a Podcast?

Simply put, a podcast is a blog for your ears. Think of it like an audio programme or regular radio show that isn’t on the radio but found on places like Apple Podcasts. Spotify and Google Play.

The dictionary definition is: “a digital audio file made available on the internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device, typically available as a series, new instalments of which can be received by subscribers automatically.”

Or as another website describes it: “A podcast is a series of spoken word, audio episodes, all focused on a particular topic or theme, like cycling or startups. You can subscribe to the show with an app on your phone and listen to episodes whenever you like on your headphones, in the car or through speakers.”

A Creativity Podcast with Me

My aim is to launch a podcast that will come out on a regular weekly basis. It will be around 30-60 minutes long and you can grab a cuppa and listen to me talk on subjects to do with art, creativity and inspiration. However, to make sure that I create something that people will listen to I would like you to help me out here and provide me on feedback as to what you would like to listen to. Remember that the medium is audio not video so arty tutorials and demonstrations will not be possible in this format.

  • What are your burning questions for me?

  • What topics that I speak about already fascinate you?

  • What would you like me to explain in terms of what I do or what I create?

Podcast Survey

If you have 5-10 minutes spare – can you fill out this short questionnaire about my podcast ideas. It will help me to shape the podcast to really fit in with all of you – my creative community! It means that all the feedback will be in one logical place for me to review as well.

Thanks for your time and I will keep you updated with this project.
