In this episode we have focused on answering some listener questions and had a chat around how to get a larger audience for your show, how many VA’s does it take to make an AD, a potential Netflix for Audio, ‘Who are the gate keepers’ and revisit some previous topics – thanks to some feedback – literally and verbally – from you!
We also had two very special guests to talk to – King Robert Cudmore and Sir Matthew of McLean. Are those calendars on their way yet? We try to find out….
It’s a common problem in Audio Drama. The first episodes of your show are often your very first steps in the world of recording and mixing audio. This can mean they’re a bit rough around the edges, and can cost you a few listeners who’ll judge you on their quality.
Does this mean you should abandon your ongoing series and start something new?
We’re also talking about the importance of practicing. It’s worth spending as much time as you can learning the craft of audio production, and just working on your show alone might not be enough.
We talk about the pros and cons of creating a show which fits with current trends. You can grow very quickly, but you also open yourself up for some early criticism, so be prepared for that.
On the other hand, you might be making something very different to what’s out there at the moment. Because of this, perhaps you’re seeing small download numbers and low engagement. Does that mean you should give up and try something else?
