Ep 131 International Podcast Day
International Podcast Day™ is September 30th and is an international celebration of the power of podcasts! So this MongoDB Podcast episode is all about Podcasting itself! Very Meta!
Mike and Shane are joined by Kris Jenkins, Developer Advocate at Confluent and Shawn "Swyx" Wang, Head of DX at Airbyte to use the opportunity of Podcast day to chat about all things Podcast related - how to get started, how to convince your organisation, how to get buy-in and what are the pros and cons of heading down the podcasting route. We spend time discussing the different approaches of the panelists, how they got started and how to engage and build an audience. We cover podcasting tech (and we live demo a glitch we had!) and equipment (Mike get's some plugs in!), and we try to examine the benefits and return on investment (qualitative and quantitive) that a Podcast will bring to your organisation.
So, if you're starting out on your podcasting journey, or even just thinking of it, then we hope this conversation and the advice imparted will help you understand the value of podcasting in either building and maintaining a brand, or growing a community, or both!
(PS. We do talk about the power of a good Microphone, but obviously Shane missed that tip - so apologies for his sound! Seems his Airpod's took over the recording instead of his fancy microphone!)
