Interview with Podcast Producer, Kattie Laur - Part 2
Kattie Laur has a background in broadcast radio so it naturally seemed to follow that she would become interested in podcasts. She's putting that passion to good use as a podcast producer and gives us some tips on what makes a great show, why she feels podcasts are an important medium and how they're the wave of the advertising future.
In this second part of our interview, she talks about:
* what a podcast needs to do to keep her listening to their intro over and over * how she decided to create sound breaks to switch between thoughts within a podcast * how different cultures experience your audio differently (context is everything!) * the differences between podcasts she's paid to produce ("learned passion") vs. her passion projects * what she can do for people when she's producing podcasts * how many different hats she wears, doing what she does * some more information about how she's highlighting female-fronted podcasts in her blog * how podcasting is still a bit of a male-dominated industry - so she feels more people should hear women's voices in podcasts * why podcasts appeal to people so much * how advertisers are catching on to the potential in podcasts
