Welcome back How Do You Like it So Far? fans! This week, we have a special treat for you — an unreleased episode of Colin and Henry’s first ever recording from September 25, 2017. For this “throwback,” we are joined by Peabody-Award-Winning storytellers and radio veterans-turned-podcasting heavyweights, Tina Antolini (former Host and Producer of Gravy), Scott Carrier, (Writer and Producer of Home of the Brave) and Trey Kay (Curator and Producer of Us & Them). Our guests remark on the surprising differences they encountered moving from public radio to producing podcasts. They interview one another on how the structure and intimacy of podcasts lends itself to listener engagement and authentic storytelling without compromising their own styles. Antolini, Carrier and Kay discuss how the radio-to-podcast transition has opened up a market for 1:1 conversational type podcasts where listeners feel fully invested in the shows and fueled the explosion of amazing niche subject matter podcasts.
Here are some of the references from this episode, for those who want to dig a little deeper:
