Q & A with Moxie from Your Brain On Facts
When did you start podcasting?
Your Brain On Facts launched this February.
Why did you start podcasting?
My goal in making the podcast was to divert the surging tide of useless facts in my head, so my friends and coworkers wouldn’t have to listen to them quite so much. The plan backfired because researching the podcast puts more facts into my brain.
What’s the name of your show about and what is it about?
Your Brain On Facts is a half-hour show of things you didn’t know, things you thought you knew, and things you never knew you never knew.
What’s your podcasting set-up? Hardware, software, CMS, etc.
I use a Tonor microphone that we’ll call cost-effective, which my husband got me as part of a kit at Christmas. All glory to Audacity for editing and to Kevin MacLeod for royalty-free music.
How have you promoted your podcast?
Promotion is probably the most difficult part of this process to succeed with, but I’m doing what I can on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If anyone knows a reliable site or app for making audiograms, please get in touch.
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
If I could go back to January when I was making my first few episodes, I would tell myself, “You’re right about wanting to have a back catalog to give new listeners enough to listen to, but don’t make them all on the same day. Spread the process out so you have time to learn between episodes.”
