Hey, I’m here to talk to you
about how to run a weekly podcast in just four hours a month. My name is Kamala Chambers, and I’m the host of the Thriving Launch Podcast with Luis Congdon,
and we spend just four hours a month on a weekly show.
I’m going to show you the four things you need to get your podcast up and running without
wasting a ton of time on it. The first thing you need to know is to make
sure you have an interview-based show. This means you’re inviting guests onto your show,
and you ask them questions. That way, your guests provide all the content, and you don’t
even have to spend any time trying to figure out what you want to talk about or coming
up with a bunch of different ideas. And, as a side note, having guests creates
a more dynamic podcast and can help you gain more fandom.
The second thing you need to know about creating a podcast that’s going to save you time is
making sure you have an online calendar where you can set times and have the guests to book
themselves. I can’t tell you how many podcasters I see
wasting so much time going back and forth with their guests trying to find a time that
works for them. With a free online scheduler like Calendly,
the guests can book themselves. The third thing you need to know about saving
time with your podcast is batching your interviews. That means you have your podcast guests all
scheduled on the same day of the month. You can get through all of your interviews for
the entire month by doing interviews back to back in one day.
The last thing I recommend is to send your podcast episodes to an editing team. Unless
you want to spend the time editing your show yourself, I suggest you let the professionals
handle it. I have done a lot of content on how to hire
a team of your own at Thriving Launch. We produce podcasts, and there are a lot of great
companies out there where you can get your show edited for you.
Some of the things to watch out for in editing is to make sure your editor can seamlessly
mix together your files, and remove the unnecessary um’s, stuttering and pauses.
Now, to get a complete checklist for making sure you’re editing like a pro, just click

I look forward to listening to your podcasts.
