Podcasts are great tools on virtually any subject... However, with over 2,000,000 podcasts out there, sifting through them is exhausting. Any recommendations?

I currently follow; Indie Hackers, Means of Creation, Creator Economics, The Colin & Samir Show, Influencer Business, and the Creator Lab Podcast.

Along with all my travel-specific podcasts - Shout out to Shane of Tourpreneur and the Travel Massive Podcast 🥳

Thanking you all 💜

Great discussion, Jessica. Right now, as I'm looking for connections between travel and web3, I'm listening to this podcast by Luca De Giglio: anchor.fm/luca-de-giglio.

I also like this one, which has a good global overview of tourism: anchor.fm/future-of-tourism.

Otherwise, I myself was recording podcast episodes with tourism experts. Most episodes are in my native language, but 6 of them are in English: fromzero.global/podcast/

I hope this helps! :)

Which platforms do you use to upload the podcast audio? Or should we do it on our own websites?

One of the most used ones is def Anchor - anchor.fm/dashboard. It's for free and does its job! Otherwise, there are also more advanced ones like Buzzsprout, Podbean, etc. Here is a list: www.adamenfroy.com/podcast-hosting

I think it's way easier and better to use a hosting platform rather than uploading it to your own website.

I use Buzzsprout and they've been great. No problems at all and I would say inexpensive

Thanks, Katy. I am working on my first travel podcast. Can you monetize your podcast via Buzzsprout?

Hi Joydeep, they have an integration with Podcorn. Monetisation is an interesting topic. I have found most success with featured content. I just passed 500K listens and it's still not enough to get on most of the ad networks. We podcasters (myself included) need to do a better job of promoting the value of this medium. I have multiple clients reporting significant sales from their features so it definitely works.

Libsyn is the best, they have the highest industry standards, easy to use and great customer service. There are also many Wordpress plugins to upload your audio. If you don't use WP, you can also take your HTML code and manually upload each episode onto your website. Reach out to me if you need details :)

Thanks, Katy! Congratulations on your 500k plus listens. So what I can conclude is feature content (sponsored) and ads are two ways to monetize it, right?

Hi Lynn, thanks for sharing about Libsyn. But don't you think, uploading it directly on the website will impact the site speed of your website?

There are some great podcasts for deep diving into destinations too eg Greece Travel Secrets, Holidays to Switzerland and to toot my own horn Untold Italy where we primarily feature locals and expats and explore the regions of Italy in depth

Podcasting is such a great medium for travel content and I'm not sure why there aren't more actually. I'm also a fan of Tourpreneur, Brené Brown's Dare to Lead and Unlocking Us, Pat Flynn's shows, The Digital Tourism Show, Films to be Buried With by Brett Goldstein

Katy, most podcasters podfade after seven episodes. Podcast production is a very involved and time consuming medium. If you have a production company to save time, you're looking at $400 to $1000 per month for production costs. So while many people start making a podcast, most don't stay around for the long haul. I produce three podcasts of my own and other podcasts for clients with the help of my team.

Yes, after producing Untold Italy myself for the first 30 episodes (I am very stubborn), the relief when I hired a producer was incredible. It definitely requires commitment that not a lot of people understand. I actually took Pat Flynn's course and I think that really set me up for success

Lots of good recommendations in the thread!

Also going to throw in the Voyages Afriq Podcast (thetourismpodcast.podbean.com) which is dedicated to Africa’s travel industry and features conversations with different thought leaders, changemakers, and tourism influencers throughout Africa.

Dare I mention "The Travel Addict," a podcast by a British fellow by the name of Malcolm Teasdale? I happened to be his most recent guest: www.malcolmjteasdale.com/podcast-episodes/episode/7a774425/fellow-travel-addict-and-ex-pat-of-6-countries-jonathan-delise-talks-about-his-teaching-escapades-overseas.
