How Do I Pick My Podcast Topic?

If you're having a hard time picking your podcast topic, don't move forward with equipment until you figure out your topic. Here are some things you might ask:

  • What do you like?
  • What are you good at?
  • What do other people say you're good at?

Some other things you might want to ask is:

  1. What is the maximum size of the audience (If everybody on the planet that was interested in this topic listened, how many people are we talking about?)
  2. Do those people really care about that topic? Are they “rabid fans?”
  3. How passionate are you about this topic

First of all, you want to figure out what you're passionate about. This is key in choosing your podcast topic.
