The Podcasters' Survival Guide


May 5, 2014

In this episode of the show we're talking about ethnography, geography, and history, and how we think you should be doing the same. Essentially this is our reaction to much of the advice out there in the Podcasts about Podcasting space, suggesting that you shouldn't speak about specific geographical or historical information, and you should try and keep your Podcast as international friendly as possible.

Josh and Jackson have slightly different thoughts on the subject, but in the end they both agree that you shouldn't cut out the things that make you who you are, and if you want to incl. geographical or historical information from your country, DO IT! Just endeavour to explain why those things are relevant and why those places, events and experiences impact the subject at hand. 

As Australian's who listen to loads of shows from North America and the UK, we feel it would be awful to hear those shows try too hard to become the international call sign for "vanilla Pods". ;)
