Q & A’s with the guys from Expedition Radio
When did you start podcasting?
We started podcasting The Expedition as an archive to the live show (which began in Aug 2015), around May 2016. Frank, however has been producing radio and hosting shows online since about 2000.
Why did you start podcasting?
We love the idea of being able to show the progression of our program, as well as take a snapshot of music that we were feeling at any given moment.
What’s your show about?
The Expedition w/ Frank Foreal is all about music discovery and discussion. We’re three music junkies, headed by Frank Foreal, who are excited to dig up the best new music from around the globe that may or may not be on your radar.
What’s your podcasting set-up?
Our live setup uses a large radio console (which I don’t know the make/model of), but we have electrovoice mics hooked up, and Frank has a Pioneer DDJ-SR controller to mix/play music.
All of this records into a windows computer. After which, Frank and our new editor, Kid Gusto, edit a version to air on DashRadio, FrissionRadio, and Podcast platforms (using different imaging for each network).
How have you promoted your podcast?
We use targeted facebook ads based on locations of fans of the artists we’re playing on a given week.
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
I WISH I would have listened to more podcasts about podcasting, how to get featured on iTunes “New & Noteworthy”, etc.
If you are ready to discover some music and have interesting conversations around it, you must subscribe!
They are also featured on the Frission Radio Network which broadcasts online to an audience mainly in the UK & Ireland! How cool is that?
And if you happen to have an archive of shows that you’d like to start to deliver podcast, we’d love to host your media!
