This bonus episode of Inside Podcasting is all the good stuff from Skye’s interview with Everything is Alive (everythingisalive.com) creator Ian Chillag that didn’t make it into the full episode from last August. The episode is divided into two parts: the first illuminates a bit more about Ian’s background — and contains some juicy bits about what he learned about interviewing from Fresh Air’s Terry Gross — and the second reveals a few more behind-the-scenes details regarding how Ian makes his show. Enjoy! If you haven’t listened to Skye’s original interview with Ian, you can find that here: http://insidepodcasting.libsyn.com/everything-is-alive-podcast-ian-chillag ----- Inside Podcasting is produced and hosted by Skye Pillsbury. Evo Terra of Simpler Media Productions is Skye’s co-producer for season two of the podcast and is also helping Skye put together these bonus episodes (more to come!). Charles Quilley is Skye’s sound engineer. Thanks to Jason Calacanis for greenlighting this project.
Podcasting journalist Skye Pilsbury joins us to discuss how podcasting compares to the dot com boom of the early 90s and where we are headed. You can subscribe to her Inside Podcasting newsletter HERE Thanks Skye!
Believe it or not, there are some things I suck at. Taking a vacation isn’t one, but one is writing a press kit. I’m just terrible at it! That’s why I’ve invited Skye Pillsbury, a journalist with PR chops, to tell you what it takes to make a great press kit for your podcast. No, there isn’t a template you can copy. Well… there are. But those suck. As Skye will tell you (repeatedly), it takes a human approach to impact a human. And the journalists who write about (or need to write about) podcasting just happen to be human. Humans, oddly enough, tend to respond better to those they have a relationship with. Crazy talk! She recommends following the guidelines from RadioPublic and Bello Collective to actually create a press kit for your show. And then she gives some practical tips on cultivating a relationship with the journalists you’re pitching. (Because there’s more to it than the mechanics of sending an email.) ----- Share this with a friend: http://podcastpontifications.libsyn.com/perfecting-your-podcasts-pr-pitch Podcast Pontifications will return in January 2020, published by Evo Terra four times a week and is aimed at the working podcaster.

Hello and welcome to a bonus episode of Inside Podcasting! Today we are featuring an episode from the Podcast Brunch Club podcast, in which PBC founder Adela Mizrachi interviews Alie Ward, host of the Ologies pod. Ologies is a show where Ward, who is a humorist and science correspondent, "asks smart people stupid questions and the answers might change your life." Podcast Brunch Club is more than just a podcast. Every month Adela and her team put out a themed listening list. People listen on their own time and then members gather in real life to discuss the playlist (there is also a virtual chapter).
