Internally I’ve created a small podcast which I’ve titled The Education & Leadership Podcast and on it I share some thoughts on this growing company, provide insights via my “guests” (which are our staff members), and also tidbits on the growing trends within our market and vertical.
I have a few questions and thoughts that I’d like to posit – so if you don’t mind indulging me for a moment…
First off I’d love to hear from you if you know of any other great podcasts that tackle a combination of technology, education, and leadership – I’d love to download them and listen in, especially if they are podcasts that target specifically the growing code school arena. That would be amazing.
Second, I’d love to hear about other podcasts that you think I and my team might benefit from. There is always room to learn more about our industry, education, and especially leadership and I’m always open to trying out a new podcast or two.
Third, would releasing the internal podcast publicly be of interest to anyone? Obviously I’d have to rethink my approach if I knew that it was also going outside of these hallowed TIY walls but I’d love for your thoughts if you have any. And, if you have or know of any examples of internal podcasts that were developed for staff but that are also shared publicly.
Which brings me to my fourth question: If I were to release them publicly I’d love to increase the quality through and by which I record them. I’m a complete podcast noob and even though I’ve tried it once or twice I’ve never really done it well or “right”; I’d like to get some decent equipment and start out strongly. Suggestions?
Finally, what do you look for in a podcast and what keeps you “hooked” and continuing to subscribe to them? What differentiates a mediocre podcast from an amazing one? What can we do or borrow from others that are “best in breed” that might make sense?
Appreciate the thoughts folks!
