►Tell us about you and your podcast
Jeremy Bohannon, former comic book store owner and pop-culture fanatic. Co-host Missy (wife), John (friend and fellow comic nerd), and Tom (oddly enough a Broadway musical buff).
PCBombcast or Pop-Culture Bomb-Cast for a proper name.
►Why & how did you start this podcast?
I've always been a fan of podcast and felt like starting one would be a great reason to get with friends and talk about the stuff we love.
Our first goal was simply to give me and John a reason to get together every week to talk all things pop-culture.
We started in 2015 under the name The R.A.P. Short for Random A** Podcast.
After buying the podcast starter kit in October 2015, we recorded and released our first episode in early November 2015.
►How'd you find the time and funding to do this podcast?
We release close to every week. Sometimes we add a bonus episode. Mainly about 60 episodes a year. It take me roughly a day to produce the episode after recording.
We make the time. Usually regularly on Thursdays or Sundays.
Overall I would say I dedicate about 4-6 hours a week to the podcast. More if I appear on someone else's show. And it one hundred percent funded be myself.
►What do you gain from podcasting?
We have a sponsor, but it mostly in beer that we review on the show once a month.
We got our sponsorship by having a prior friendship. And where averaging 12oo downloads a month at that point.
Currently we don't have any others and haven't searched out any.
Our benefits are mainly just a good time with friends.
►How does your podcasting process look like?
Lap top, mixing board, mics. And use Audacity to edit.
We reach out to people that we think are interesting to us in the surrounding area.
We prepare by coming up with topics for the week and typing up loose bullet points for those topics. And if it is a guest, we do the research needed pertaining to that guest.
Almost always in person.
►How do you market your show?
We use a combo of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. I don't pay attention to the breakdowns, but they are available.
►What advice would you share with aspiring (new) podcasters?
My advice is to do it! Find out your budget and what equipment fits into that budget. The next step is to talk!
Google any questions you have. There are plenty of people that have posted all the answers you will ever need.
