Building a Podcast – Early Days

I have always enjoyed trying out new things and have been wanting to start a podcast for ages. I experimented last year by recording some of my short stories using a podcast app and then trying to review some books and films. But I originally didn’t give myself enough time and life took over.

Now I am determined to have another go. This time I will slowly but surely establish a basic podcast about my thoughts on entertainment, current affairs and the environment. Hopefully I will engage some listeners and be able to discuss books and TV shows in more detail than on my blog and offer some blogging tips too.

Episode 2

This week I mention a thrilling IMDB TV/ Amazon drama based on the Alex Ryder books. I also talk about a short, but impressive, book called ‘State of the Union.’ My intention is to discuss each subject in a bitesize chunk so you can skip through to one that interests you.

If you are a new blogger then maybe my weekly tips for developing your blog will be handy. I would love for people to add comments to each episode with their own ideas about the things that I review as well as their tips for helping a blog to flourish.

Here is this week’s short podcast:

Please check it out and drop a comment to help me get a conversation going. I appreciate anyone taking the time to help me get started. Please also consider following my blog for content about books, entertainment and the environment.

  1. So excited for you to start your podcast! I have toyed around with the idea but have no idea where to start. Great job!!

  2. While podcasts aren’t typically what I reach for (I’m more of an audiobook gal), this definitely sounds interesting. I read the Alex Ryder books when I was younger so it’d be fun to hear the show discussed in this manner!

  3. Hi Jamie,
    Just finished listening. You have a great podcast voice, it’s soothing and interesting. I enjoyed what you shared and was able to do a little work while having you on in the background. I often listen to books or storytellers while working and you fit right in! The snippets were brief so I was able to enjoy quite a few things in a short time. I know that you’re still working things out and I look forward to listening again in the future.

  4. I wish you all the best on your return to podcasting. I couldn’t do that myself as I hate the sound of my voice when I hear a recording of it

  5. I’m looking forward to listening to your podcast! My friend and I have a podcast that we’re still figuring out and it’s on season 2! So just know there is always room for growth.
