I Launched A Podcast in Less Than 48 Hours. Here's How I Did It...

A week ago I wasn't thinking about making a podcast.

When it comes to my creator life I'm a jump first and figure it out later kinda gal. After a fun conversation with Daniel Bustamante on Racket on Thursday morning, I shot off a quick tweet saying I want to make Rackets and who wants to join?

Then I went to work.

I came back to over 20+ people who wanted to have conversations with me! And Creator Conversations was born. No planning, no prep, just a quick tweet. I spent the day shooting off calendar invites, filling up my calendar for the next two weeks, and recording & publishing my first two conversations.

Here's my process for starting your first podcast in 24 hours:

πŸ‘‰ Get people booked in with a Calendly link. This eliminates dreaded timezone conversations. It also helps to give people context of what will happen. I like to start with a 10-15 minute chat to warm up and then we start the counter!

πŸ‘‰ Use Racket Studio to record conversations. The 9-minute constraint is perfect! Not too long that I'm stressing about a whole lot of questions, but just enough time to have a good chunk of interesting conversation.

πŸ‘‰ Publish on Racket & Promote on Twitter. The best thing about Racket is you really only need a title and an image and you can hit publish. It's so low friction.

πŸ‘‰ User Anchor.fm to publish as a podcast. I've gone one step further and published each episode on anchor.fm so people can subscribe and listen on Spotify, Apple & Google Podcasts. As much as I like Racket, I find the listening experience a little disconnected.

Stop waiting for perfect conditions. Start now. Take massive action. Create chaos and clean up along the way.

Check It Out On Twitter πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

Come join the conversation on Twitter, it's much more fun with friends.
