Q & A with John Saunders from Brightside Radio!
When did you start podcasting?
We started our Brightside podcast in September of 2012.
Why did you start podcasting?
Our main idea was to put out the music we think people deserve to hear, rather than the mainstream massacre that happens in the top 40 today.
What’s your show about?
Our show illuminates the underground artist and the creative image behind any art. We strive to update our fans weekly on the best in hip hop, indie rock, and EDM.
What’s your podcasting set-up? Hardware, software, CMS, etc.
We use a mix of different softwares and hardware, because we treat every podcast as a piece of art. We use softwares like garageband, ableton live, Logic Pro, audacity, soundflower, and reason. Our hardware includes two shure digital mics, two MacBook pros, an ableton launch pad and a mixer.
How have you promoted your podcast?
We are current enrolled students at SDSU so a big part of our following is there. Other than that, our content and constant updates keep people coming.
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
I wish I knew the week to week “have tos” about podcasting. There’s a lot more behind the scenes then you think.
