James Marriott drinks beer, watches football and discusses both on his popular podcasts.

He loves listening to other people’s podcasts too.

And all this is (part of) how he makes a living.

With two decades’ experience in media, including 15 in commercial radio and 4 in newspaper journalism, James now specialises in podcasting and mentors new and existing podcasters along their path to success.

In this episode James gives exceptional advice:

  • why people love podcasts (and still love the radio),
  • his career path from journalist to radio station manager to podcaster,
  • what you must think about if you want to launch your own podcast,
  • how to stand out in your area and produce a podcast people enjoy,
  • editing and hosting,
  • his own process of supporting podcasters,
  • how to avoid common mistakes and problems.

He also describes a diverse array of podcasts he loves and has tips to follow if you’re being interviewed on a podcast or the radio – or if you’re interviewing anyone.

Enjoy the episode: James really knows his onions and cares about making great quality content (and helping other folk do it too).
