Eight Rules of Effective Podcasting

There are thousands of podcasts on the web, but why would anyone listen to yours? I found this site with suggestions and tips that made a lot of sense – Kirk’s Eight Rules of Effective Podcasting.

An abridged version of the rules state:

  1. Have something to say.
  2. Be prepared.
  3. Be short and simple.
  4. Be clear.
  5. Be yourself.
  6. Be unique.
  7. Provide detailed program notes.
  8. Don’t stick in music just to fill time, or to punctuate your show.

What’s so cool about this article is that he gives hints and other resources, including an example for copyright-free music in non-commercial podcasts from Magnatune.
