Creator of the Day #9: Mark Askew

1) In one sentence, what is your podcast about?

ApexThis Podcast is a behind-the-scenes look as I create my own production & publishing side business. It’s like Startup, but with no money.

2) Who should listen to your podcast?

Those that are looking to start their own side-business and or are curious what challenges or obstacles others face as they try to launch a side-business.

3) How long have you been podcasting and why did you get into podcasting?

I’ve been podcasting for 3 years. I got into podcasting as a way to provide information quickly to my user group as we were not able to cover their topics in our monthly meetups and webinars. Despite being a long-time listener, podcasting sparked the idea of bringing my writing to audio.

4) What non-podcasting hobbies do you have?

I like cycling, writing, reading, and attempting lettering/typography though I am still a novice.

5) Tell us about your setup!

I use the following: AKG P420 microphone, Scarlett2i2 audio interface, Sony MDR-7506 headphones & Adobe Audition

6) What is one show (other than your own) that you think everyone should listen to?

The Truth – Super tough, but I love anthology series and fictional podcasts and when you add them together, you get The Truth by Jonathan Mitchell. Runner up is Hardcore History. I love stories!

7) Anything else you’d like to share?

I founded and run the Austin Podcasters Meetup providing local podcasters with monthly meetups and workshops to learn and talk about all things podcasting.
