Let’s be honest, we’ve all thought about having a podcast of our own at some point. Well, stop thinking about creating one and get on with it. The Mint One podcast wants to help, so here’s a guide!
Robert Baggs and John Nicholls have decided to combine forces to launch the weekly Mint One Podcast. Each week they will discuss a new topic around web3, as well as feature special guests from all corners of the industry. If there’s a topic you’d like us to cover, make sure you let us know through the Token Gamer Discord or Twitter, or Mint One Twitter.
In last week’s episode, we discussed the truth about web3’s creator economy. This week, we’ve decided to do our first entirely educational episode to help you get started with your own podcast!
Mint One Podcast, Episode 78: How To Start A Web3 Podcast
I had wanted to create a podcast since around 2005 when I heard The Ricky Gervais Show, a podcast with Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and Karl Pilkington (and it’s iconic, by the way.) I didn’t consider myself knowledgeable enough to speak on any topic (that was an error) and I put it off for well over a decade.
In this episode, we first discuss why you should create a podcast, before going into our workflow and equipment. On the topic of “why”, I want to add a few points I didn’t mention. Alongside imposter syndrome, I was hesitant to create my own podcast because I was terrified no one would listen. I always felt like I needed a reason to create a podcast so that if it failed, I could say “yes, sure, but the reason I created it is because…” It was a weak mindset, but I am certain I’m not alone.
The truth is, it will fail in the early days — it’s basically guaranteed. But if you stop viewing your own podcast as a business venture, or comparing it to the Joe Rogan Experience, you might find the benefits. It’s a great way to stay plugged into what you love, practice speaking, interview interesting people, develop yourself as an authority, and above all perhaps, it’s damned enjoyable.
We’d like to ask that if you listen to us on Apple Podcasts and/or Spotify, you rate us five stars and leave us a review if you enjoy Mint One. This helps both our podcast and the blockchain gaming ecosystem as a whole!
