Q & A with Matt from The Koops Podcast

When did you start podcasting?

I started The Koops Podcast in October, this year.  So far there have been seven episodes, so it’s still a very new program.  I’ve had the chance to speak with some amazing people, with some terrific stories, and I’m excited to keep bringing more stories of people’s lives and experiences – with a distinct slant towards humor and hubris!

Why did you start podcasting?

I am fascinated with the idea of communication.  We have to listen to other people’s stories to learn anything, and that is pretty much the theme of the podcast – it is listening to other’s stories that allows us to learn and grow as people.  Given half a chance, just about anyone is happy to talk about themselves and/or their opinions – this podcast is entirely devoted to others.

What’s your show about?

It’s all about the story.  Some episodes focus on a person’s life, and the wonderful experiences contained therein, others about knowledge, and the dissemination of information.  Sharing stories and sharing experiences.

What’s your podcasting set-up? Hardware, software, CMS, etc.

As a complete technophobe, I try to keep it as simple as possible – this helps with portability and cuts down on the things that can wrong.

Everything is built around Bossjock Studio in my iPad2.  This is a fantastic app that allows me to use carts when I need to add music or other samples on the fly, and makes managing the recording very simple.

I use Shure SM58 microphones, a Behringer UCA222 soundcard that connects my Soundcraft Compact 4 to my iPad, AKG k240 headphones.  For my post-production (compression only) I use StudioOne.

How have you promoted your podcast?

There is a Facebook page for the podcast, a Twitter account, plus I have added the podcast to a couple of podcast directories: Podfeed, OzPod, etc.  No other promotion apart from word-of-mouth.

What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?

I know very little, even now!  I’m not knowledgable enough to know what I didn’t know then!
