My name is Doug Miles. "Book Talk" interviews with authors of the newest books available. We have a wide demographic - M/W 25-64.
I began the podcast in 2008 and post 2 to 3 episodes per week. It is an extension of the talk radio show I hosted in the Tampa Bay area for several years.
I record the interviews and edit on the laptop. The show takes approx. 30 minutes to produce. I have used "google ad sense", as well as other advertising.
I enjoy broadcasting and interviewing. I'm open to sponsorship provided it is a product or service that is respectable and fits in with the format. We see approx. 10K downloads per month on my website. It is also posted on other platforms.
Sound Forge audio editing software. I have several different publicity firms that send me information on available authors. I contact them to set up phone interviews with the author. I usually get a book to read beforehand.
Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter posts to promote.
Treat each podcast like you are doing it live. Make it sound like a radio broadcast and conversational.
