What it takes to listen to podcasts

Jason: Especially now, these days, we have MPR and people from big media organizations coming into podcasting and really elevating — the bar is being raised because they’re trained in storytelling and news making and audio production, and there’s a lot we can learn from that. To keep up, you’re going to need to learn from that, and that’s not too intimidate anybody, but I think there’s a lot of value in listening to a variety of podcasts, especially some of those that are doing really well in the rankings just to kind of get an idea of what’s working and what you want to adapt and what you want to do differently.

Evaldas: That’s quite a good insight. I see a pattern here that can really go wide, very wide to gain new knowledge in different kind of spaces, but it sort of helps you to find your ways out of achieving success.

Jason: Yeah, I mean, if all you do is listen to the same obvious stuff, and just like the stuff that’s really close to your own topic, the stuff that everyone else is probably reading and listening to and following, then your ideas are just going to kind of be an echo of everybody else’s ideas. So, what really helps you stand out is when, I think, you follow that curiosity outside of the usual boundaries and parameters and bring in that perspective, because then you have a unique voice that starts to form at that point.
