CHICAGO (March 31, 2017) — David Dault (@DaultRadio), host of the radio program Things Not Seen: Conversations about Culture and Faith, and Rev. Steven D. Martin of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. presented a lively and tip-rich workshop, Podcasts that are Addictive, during the 2017 Annual Convention of the Religion Communicators Council.
Dault began with a brief look at the mechanics of addiction, concluding that our goal is not so much an “unhealthy dependence,” but to keep people listening, coming back, and telling others to listen to our podcasts.
Compelling content, quality, and consistency are the watchwords for anyone wanting to create a podcast, according to Dault. He outlined five podcast structures (monologue, dialogue, panel, montage, and magazine) and advised attendees to know them, pick one and stick with it.
