103: What a Radio DJ Can Teach Us About the Podcasting Wave, with Tysen Webb

Released Monday, 28th April 2014
Good episode? Give it some love!
We’ve seen video kill the radio star, will podcasting do the same to radio next? What’s podcasting going to look like 5 years from now - is it the next big “thing”?
Joining us to answer all those questions - and so much more - is radio DJ extraordinaire Tysen Webb.
More About This Show
Tysen is a man of radio. He’s been a radio DJ for 22 years and it’s the only full-time gig he’s ever had. It’s not a stretch to say he knows radio inside and out; it’s been his passion since he was a child. In fact, he started working as a radio station producer when he was only 14 -  his story about how he landed that gig is reflection of his solopreneurial hustle.
When he joined The Solopreneur Hour for this show, he had much to share about the trajectory of radio, why he has his own podcast and the important role podcasting is playing and will continue to play in our audio lives.
You'll also discover things like:

His first on-air experience: how he took advantage of an opportunity.
His 20,000 foot view on the podcast movement: how to ride the tidal wave
The biggest challenges he sees in podcasting and we break down how to tackle each.
Why creating a show based on YOUR personality and your hard-wiring is the first step to success
How he thinks podcasting will affect radio
And how the Mini did at our first car race!

Tysen has known since he was a child that he wanted to be on air and he has the voice for it! As a man who has been behind the mic for over 20 years, Tysen is well-qualified to talk about the radio trends he has seen in his history as well as the impact podcasting has made on radio so far. He sees podcasting as a tidal wave that is just beginning to rise, as do I.
We chat about how to take advantage of that rising tidal wave and how you can lay the groundwork right now, including what equipment to use and some basic fundamentals every podcaster should do know when he or she gets started.
But we don't limit ourselves to podcasting! Like every episode, our conversation runs the gamut of numerous topics. In this show, Tysen and I talk about our own particular passions: video games, car racing and vision board/bucket list items. Not only does that chat make for interesting conversation, it is also highlights the joy of the solopreneurial lifestyle.
And that's one of the reasons I've created this show: to remind you why you're a solopreneur! Whether it’s car racing, playing a particular sport or making extra time for your family, design your solopreneuer lifestyle to include your passions. I hope this episode reminds you to follow your vision, make time for the things that really feed your soul and stay on your solopreneurial course.
