Building your podcasting audience is a constent struggle. Even when your doing good, you want to do better! Tyler Smith is the host of Battleship Pretension, a podcast that delves deep into the structure and theory of film. Co-host David Bax (absent) and Tyler have built their podcast for the last 6 years and still struggle to get it to a place they are happy with. This is a common theme amongst podcasters, What defines a successfull podcast, A small legion of loyal listeners or is it just a numbers game? Does a large number of downloads define success?
Of course our guest is the host of a movie podcast so there this episode is layered in a bit of film talk but we also talk Equipment as well as spend some time on how to market a podcast. This is an always changing, ever evolving creature in the podcasting world. If there is one way that will always show results, big or small, seems to be the guest host.
