When a podcaster stops producing episodes, suddenly and without notice, that’s called “podfade.”

Believe it or not, 50% of podcasts podfade before reaching episode seven. And then another 50% quit before episode 20!*

In this episode, Matt Halloran and Kirk Lowe share best practices for keeping your podcast going forever. Having produced 3500+ podcast episodes for clients and ProudMouth, they know how to avoid common mistakes that cause even the most enthusiastic podcasters to podfade.

Matt and Kirk discuss:

  • Advice for new podcasters on managing expectations and staying motivated 
  • Four KNOWs that make or break a podcast’s staying power
  • What you should (and shouldn’t) focus on during your first few episodes
  • How outsourcing reduces the likelihood of podfade
  • And more
