libsyn ● Q & A with D. Louis from Science Fiction Film Podcast ● ::When did you start podcasting?::
.
I started podcasting about a year-and-a-half ago, but at the end of June I closed my old feed to focus my rebranding efforts on my current show, “The Science Fiction Film Podcast.”
.
::Why did you start podcasting?::
.
I started podcasting because I am obsessed with podcasts. I listen to about 30 shows. .
I love expressing my ideas and opinions, and after realizing that speaking came easier to me than writing — I decided to take the plunge. .
::What's your show about?::
.
My show is about science fiction film. .
We also cover “The Walking Dead” and “A Game of Thrones” and sometimes do top-5 types of episodes that are in the genre. .
I have listened to a lot of tv & film podcasts, and really wanted to hear something where people spoke openly and authentically, while still maintaining a good analysis of the material. .
I didn’t want to have a stuffy and censored show, but I also didn’t want to have a adolescent show either. I basically wanted to be the Joe Rogan of tv and film. .
::What's your podcasting set-up? Hardware, software, CMS, etc.::
.
Hardware has really changed over time. .
I use a Heil-PR40, a Mackie 8 track mixer, a vocal compressor, Adobe Audition, and a soundboard on a Mac Book connected to the mixer for sound/clip drops. When I started I used a cheap USB mic and Garage Band.
.
::How have you promoted your podcast?::
.
I promote by word of mouth, social media, and fan engagement. .
I really loved the idea of making our fans part of the show. .
We routinely have polls that allow the fans to dictate what we cover in the genre.
.
::What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?::
.
Don’t be too creative with your show name. Understand that nobody cares who you are — only what you can offer them. What will tempt them to click play. The caring comes after you establish trust. .
