►Tell us about you and your podcast
We are Rick and Julia Ingham, we're longtime fans of the Mad Max series of movies and turned our love of the franchise into a podcast.
Each episode we take a look at one minute of a Mad Max movie, one film at a time, moving chronologically through the series. This format was conceived by the team over on the Gutterballs Podcast and popularized by the Star Wars Minute.
►Why & how did you start this podcast?
We were inspired to begin our podcast by listening to other movies by minutes podcasts, and in January 2017 we launched the Mad Max Minute to try our hands at it.
Pre-production on Season 1 (the first 93 normal episodes plus our 6 hiatus specials) was very short, Rick had the desire to start a podcast on New Year's Eve, 2016, and by January 30th, 2017 our first episode was released.
►How'd you find the time and funding to do this podcast?
For seasons 1 and 2 we released episodes 5-days-a-week, but we found that we were burning through content too quickly, so for season 3 we rolled back to 3-days-a-week, and that's worked out well for us as producers. We pre-record all of our episodes ahead of time, usually weeks or months ahead of release to allow for plenty of "wiggle room" when it comes to post-production.
We initially self-funded all podcast related expenses until we started a Patreon (patreon.com) which helps cover the hosting fees for our homepage. We also accept donations and have a Teepublic storefront (teepublic.com)
►What do you gain from podcasting?
Podcasting is a way for us to celebrate a piece of media that we've enjoyed for years and has given us many new friends and acquaintences. We may never recieve financial gain from this project, but we're happy to be flirting with the idea of breaking even.
►How does your podcasting process look like?
Rick does the producing, editing, and web management. We record using Studio microphones fed through a mixer into Adobe Audition.
We find most of our quests through the Movies by Minutes community, but on occasion reach elsewhere when a special occasion calls for it.
We each prepare separately and then use our personal notes during the recording, it helps to keep our reactions genuine when a new observation is presented.
A large portion of our guests connect with us online through Discord, Skype, etc.
►How do you market your show?
We share new episodes through our Twitter and Facebook pages and can be found on iTunes, Google Play etc.
►What advice would you share with aspiring (new) podcasters?
If there's one piece of advice that we can offer, it's to be prepared. Producing a podcast is something that can quickly spiral out of your control if you're not careful, so make sure your ducks are in a row before you waddle out of the pond.
