Show Summary: "Creating a pilot episode helps you set proper expectations with your listeners." 

Ready to dive into podcasting but don't know what your first episode will be?

Then create your pilot episode! Pilot episodes help you set expectations with your listeners, and this is where you can warm them up and make them understand why they should listen to your show. 

It will also help you set your podcast's tone and save their time by telling them right off the bat if this is the right show for them or not. Through this, you can properly communicate what's in it for them even before absorbing the upcoming episodes. 

And in this episode, I share some guide questions that can help you create your pilot episode! When you're done creating it, I encourage you to share it with me by simply tagging me on my social media pages (Facebook, Linkedin & Instagram) or emailing me at
