Jet Streamer Podcast: What makes a "good" podcast?

Updated: Mar 23, 2021

This is a moment!

Just to prove that Jet Streamer is not all sizzle and no sausage, it's a great day to say that we're launching our brand new podcast! Yep, that's right, just to show you that I know what I'm talking about (mostly...) the shiny new Jet Streamer podcast hits the digital airwaves as of today. Hooray!

So what's this podcast about, anyway?

Well, this is a podcast for entrepreneurs and small business owners who are looking to use podcasting to connect with their audiences and gain a better relationship with their customers and clients. For those that would like to rise above the traditional "talk into a microphone for an hour" format that so many entrepreneurs have tried (and failed). It annoys me to see so many smart people waste so much time- especially when they usually have a message that people need to hear. So let's change that!

So in this episode, we start the discussion about what makes a "good" podcast. I've come up with a few of my own favourite ideas (read: pet peeves) about what makes a podcast listenable, and what will keep your audience coming back episode after episode.

I'd love to hear what you think! Am I on the right track? Leave a comment below or on social media and let me know.

And for those who are listening to the embedded version, the links mentioned in the show notes are available below.
