Do you have a great idea? Do want to vary your reach? Do you love to talk? Do you really love to talk? If you answered yes, podcasting is your next big project.
In this seminar you will learn the basics: Who, what and how. Who are you talking to? What are you saying? And most important, how do you get started? If you are boring your friends because you can’t stop talking about your favorite subject or your platform, then podcasting is for you, if only to save your marriage and your social circle.
In this webinar you will learn:
- Who – Podcasting is all about niche. Who shares your passion? Who wants to know what you want to know? Who is watching the same shows or reading the same books? For authors, Who is asking questions about your book or your platform (yeah, let’s all give a collective shudder to that term).
- What – Your show should be about your passion, what you love and what you can’t stop talking about. Learn some of the best practices for setting up a consistent show.
- How – the easiest way to start podcasting is through either Blog spot radio or Google Hangout. Learn what will work for you.

I am presently finishing up a 67,000 word memoir about my Army Brat Days in the fifties and sixties and should have it finished this year, to be called: “Interrupted Journeys: A Memoir of an Army Brat.” Barbara Fifield
Thank you so much for this information, Catharine and Linda Joy. These roundtables are always very informative. I understand the need to build a writer’s platform and find my niche in the sea of social media, besides having a writing/memoir blog, I mean. You are correct, Linda Joy. I’m one of the technologically insecure writers who would rather stay in her cave and write. But I can’t sell anything that way. What happens if NO ONE comes to listen to my podcasts, assuming I finally learn enough to make a few? As always, thank you Linda Joy for helping memoirists by having these roundtable discussions.
