If you have the ability to speak and press the record button, then you have an incredible opportunity in front of you to make some serious impact doing something that is both fun and easy - an on a massive scale just as I've done.



Few weeks before I released my first ever podcast episode... With Earl Alright



Just take a moment to imagine where you would be right now if you had your own radio or TV show with hundreds or thousands of loyal listeners all over the world in just a few months from today.







Well, I am privileged to have started my podcast The Audacity2Lead a bit early and feel it’s wonderful to share with you how you can start yours.



My journey into podcasting started with me running a finely-edited audio broadcast of my pastor’s messages on Facebook, Twitter, BBM and Whatsapp. I then went ahead and uploaded them to our church’s website.



In the bid to make the process better, I discovered podcasting is a cool route to publish the message my pastor has been given. Then I started testing…



What caught my eyes those days was that the first audio I published didn’t get much attention, but from the third and fourth, I suddenly began to have over 200 downloads weekly for each episode. And till today, even after I’ve paused publishing them, the stats are almost in that range.

OKAY, SO WHAT’S BIG ABOUT PODCASTING?

To a beginner, podcasting may be audio, video or media content shared over the internet. I’ll say it’s more like having your own radio or TV show with listeners and viewers around the world.



The unique thing about podcast is that you don’t need a radio or TV, you don’t even have to listen to it on your computer. Almost all smartphones now have in-built capacity for podcast.



If you use an Android phone, maybe Techno, you can get Stitcher from your Play Store. With Blackberry, you can check your media folder for an app icon called Podcasts, or you may download a completely different one from Blackberry App World.



The beauty of podcast is that you can listen to what you want, when you want, where you want.



Since you can download them to your phone’s mp3 player, you’re able to take and share your podcast to the farthest part of the world.

SO, HOW CAN YOU START YOUR PODCAST?

You are probably may have thought about starting your own podcast here in Nigeria, but you feel overwhelmed by all the expensive technical know-how’s you find online.



That is why I did this episode of the Audacity2Lead podcast just for you.



Imagine a podcast about how to podcast. Hilarious!



Just a few days ago, I read on Razor Social that

“Podcasting is set to continue to grow at a rapid rate for many years to come. What YouTube is doing to TV is like what Podcasting is doing for radio. Imagine in a few years time when you hop into your car and you switch on the podcast inst...
