►Tell us about you and your podcast

My podcast is an automotive based podcast. My friend Brandon co-hosts the podcast with me. We talk about cars and sometimes whatever is on our mind. We interview numerous people in the industry. We also go to car shows and talk about those events on the podcast.


►Why & how did you start this podcast? 

My initial goals were to just talk about cars and have fun. I enjoy listening to podcasts and I love cars, so I decided to start one. We started the podcast at the end of March. It took a few weeks to release our first episodes.


►How'd you find the time and funding to do this podcast?

We usually release an episode once a week. Sometimes twice a week. The actual episode is usually an hour or a little over. Then the editing takes maybe a half hour or so. We do it on Sundays. I have a little over $2000 invested including equipment. Yes, it all came out of my pocket.


►What do you gain from podcasting?        

Right now I have no sponsors. I hope to at some point. We average 100 downloads a day right now. It's a lot of fun and I get to talk to cool car people and learn stuff.


►How does your podcasting process look like? 

I use audio-technica mics, a Yamaha mixer, a Zoom h6 recorder, and Audacity for editing. I usually message people on Instagram or email them. Research a little bit or just on the fly which actually works well for us. We record both in-person and through Skype.


►How do you market your show?

ITunes, Google, Stitcher, IHeart radio, tune in, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, the usual. Most of our listener base is from iTunes.


►What advice would you share with aspiring (new) podcasters?

I learned about sound and I learned how to interview people. I learned how to use social media more effectively. Blogs, books, videos, and other podcasts are great resources and highly suggested.
