Q & A with the crew from Unleash The Fanboy
When did you start podcasting?
We started experimenting with podcasts in late June, and after 2 or 3 practice episodes, we dove straight in.
Why did you start podcasting?
Unleash The Fanboy is quickly becoming one of the bigger sources for news regarding indie comics, super hero movies, and general fandom, and we wanted to expand how we interact with our audience. What better way than a podcast?
What’s your show about?
We’re a bunch of fanboys sitting by the proverbial fireplace, sipping our favorite swill, discussing the latest geek news from the week.
How have you promoted your podcast?
We promote our podcast through our social media accounts, but really, the best tactic we’ve ever employed is to embed the podcast player in our website’s header. It loads on every page, in a convenient place, and after long enough, even the most uninterested visitor will think “Hey, I wonder what they’re talking about”
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
I wish I knew that we didn’t have to bend over backwards to edit the show. In the beginning, we spent about 6 hours an episode editing everyone’s individual recordings, removing all of the dead air and embarrassing guttural coughs, but that’s not really necessary. The advantage of podcasting is that it is NOT a massive corporate radio show. At its best, podcasts are a conversation between you and your listeners.
