One Last Thought...
introduction of an introduction and let's laugh onto the camera a lot. The entire content could be squeezed into 20 minutes, but some parts were actually useful. I would recommend the authors to delete the part where they make fun of reading disabilities - it might have been recorded 5 years ago, but the course is still available in 2020
It's great that the two hosts recognised a need for this particular course because hosting a podcast successfully requires a very different skill-set to creating a podcast from a technical perspective. The two hosts are clearly well intentioned and want to do their best work. I just wish that the production value of the content could have been higher. The entire course is presented through skype conversations between the two hosts and certain episodes lagged as a result. Second, i feel like the material points the hosts tried to make could have taken a lot less time and some of the longer conversations could have been much shorter and succinct while offering the same advice. It seems as though the hosts themselves could have done with a bit more preparation and put a bit more effort into the actual production of this course.
Great course - short and to the point. Lots of relevant information and tips on hosting and improving your podcast style and content.
Starting from the first steps, Martin and Scott take you through all the little things to think about to create a high-quality podcast. Highly recommended for those just starting out AND those who have experience and want to increase their skill.
Martin is a tremendous person who gives great insight without over-complicating with excessive detail that only serves to confuse the viewer. The information presented is outstanding- go back and listen repeatedly until it sinks in!
Interviewing and communication is not quite the inherent skill people think. This course is very informative and easy to follow. The teachings will help create necessary skills to be a show host. I highly recommend it.
