►Tell us about you and your podcast
Undisputed is a long-form conversation podcast hosted by Sam John Byrne and Gavin Quigley & produced by Infinity Media. Available on iTunes, acast and YouTube.
►Why & how did you start this podcast?
Taking inspiration from informational entertainers such as Neil DeGrasse Tyson, David Attenborough, Jordan B. Peterson, Joe Rogan, Ben Shapiro and many more we wanted to create an open collabortive platform that provides intellectually entertaining and comical commentary on everything in this life.
We had no goals. We just love conversing with people about their journey, thoughts and opinions. Everyone is unique and has a unique perspective. The thing is not many people have the courage or time to ask somebody what they do. That's where we step in.
Nearly a year ago now.
About 6 months. We ran into a lot of technical issues and personal schduling conflicts but everything fell into place in the end.
►How'd you find the time and funding to do this podcast?
Our episodes are very sporadic. We set nothing in stone and just release content when we can. It depends when our guests are available and if we're available to do it. Every podcast is produced within 48 hours. It's the promotion of the podcast that takes the longest.
We just shoot for an hour on the weekends and then I would spend the rest of the day editing and making some adjustments the following morning. It's not that time consuming as long as you organise yourself correctly.
In excess of about $2000. Our equipment is pretty standard and we incorporate our podcast through our website although it's a separate platform all together. It just saves money hosting from there than SoundCloud. Everything is funded by myself and my business partner.
►What do you gain from podcasting?
We're currently not advertising but we do have a donate page and patron page. Nobody likes advertising. We don't even have sponsors or affiliates. So we can say pretty much whatever we want. We do have some revenue models in place but we haven't tested them as of yet but when we do will let you know.
The real benefit from this podcast is developing professional relationships with our guests. The people on it are very interesting and have a lot to share. Whether it be fitness, political perspectives, self-development advice, business advice or whatever. There experience is applicable to your situation, whatever that may be.
►How does your podcasting process look like?
Two blue yeti mics, garage band, two Panasonic cameras, camera stands, a table, 2 chairs and a macbook with garage band.
We dm our guests through instagram :)
We don't prepare at all. We treat it as if we're just meeting up with one of our friends for a chat. It keeps things way more relaxed and casual then. That way you're not thinking what will I ask next and you more so get engrossed in the conversation. Just listen attentively and get yourself involved in what they're saying.
We have a studio in town we rent our for 3 hours. Costs about 120 euro per session we meet our guests there.
►How do you market your show?
Our listeners predominetly find our podcast through YouTube. And then Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
►What advice would you share with aspiring (new) podcasters?
Take as much time as you need in the planning and branding process. We're extremely broad in topical conversation which makes it extremely hard to brand. Focus on getting niche specific. Talk about whatever you love. And just get started.
