Your Podcast Voice - Deepstash

Your Podcast Voice

Unlike actors and radio hosts, podcasters do not need a professional sounding voice and only need to talk about stuff that is well-known to them. If you care about what you are saying, others will too.

Stay true to yourself and be genuine, finding your niche audience who love your thoughts.

  • If your podcast is aimless, valueless and full of commercials disguised as content, it will go nowhere.
  • Apart from having a consistent schedule of episodes and varied content, one has to look at all kinds of platforms to promote their podcast, even video platforms like YouTube.
  • Network with others and ask for collaborations that are thoughtful, interesting and relevant.
  • No podcast is an island, and one has to find supporters, fans and collaborators(to cross-promote with) to grow an organic audience.

The first and foremost thing to take care of is to provide value to the listener. Ensure your podcast has substance, which can be many things like being genuinely funny, entertaining, informative or simply having a gripping story.

Having lots of insights that people don’t find elsewhere also helps in increasing the value of a podcast.

  • Deep work”: using your skills to create something of value. It takes thought, energy, time and concentration.
  • Shallow work”: all the little administrative and logistical stuff: email, meetings, calls, expense reports, etc.

Shallow work stops you from getting fired — but deep work is what gets you promoted.

9 Tips To Give Constructive Criticism
  1. Use the "feedback sandwich" method when advising. Give a positive comment, then the feedback that could potentially be construed as criticism, and finish by reiterating the positive. That way the criticism is "sandwiched" between two positives, making it seem less harsh.
  2. Focus on the situation, not the person. This helps preventing the other person from feeling attacked.
  3. Think about timing when you give feedback. When emotions are running high people tend to become less receptive to criticism.
  4. Use A "Straw Man" to illustrate your point. "Try to give the critique through a personal anecdote or an inspiring story of someone famous who went through the same thing.
  5. Offer specific suggestions. This keeps the discussion focused and gives the other person a concrete area of improvement.
  6. Keep your language positive and avoid negative statements. It helps to set the tone of the entire exchange.
  7. Stick to "I" statements. Using "I feel" statements over more accusatory "you" statements works.
  8. Be conscious of your tone. If you're coming off as stern, or angry, that may trigger someone’s defenses.
  9. Think about if it really needs to be said, or if it doesn't need to come from you. Sometimes it's better not to say it. Nothing can be more off-putting than unsolicited advice.

A mechanical keyboard has a physical switch under every key so you get the best tactile feedback possible. Some, like Razer, have started substituting metal contacts for beams of light, giving instant actuation along with a traditional mechanical feel.
