Ep 61: Defying the Weekly Episode Expectation

The Lazy Girl's Guide to Podcasting: A Podcast about How to Start a Podcast and Podcasting Tips

09-01-2024 • 8 mins

In this episode, I'll address the frequently asked question about whether podcasters need to produce weekly episodes. There is no hard and fast rule dictating a weekly release schedule and as a podcaster, you should find a rhythm that works for them. I parallel this with music artists who don't release albums every week, highlighting that consistent output does not necessarily mean weekly episodes.

I'll encourage you to focus on the age-old podcasting tip that is creating quality content and building a loyal audience, rather than feeling pressured to adhere to a specific release schedule. Ultimately, the emphasis is on the fact that podcasting is about finding what works best for you as an individual podcaster and your show.

Highlights:

  • Introduction to the question: Do you need to produce weekly podcast episodes?
  • Comparison with music artists who release albums less frequently than weekly.
  • Emphasizing that consistency does not necessarily mean a weekly release schedule.
  • The importance of finding a rhythm that works for the podcaster.
  • Highlighting the benefits of releasing episodes less frequently, such as allowing for more focused content and better preparation.
  • Encouraging podcasters to prioritize quality over quantity and to set realistic goals for themselves.
  • The importance of communication with listeners about release schedules and expectations.
