As a content manager at Forem, one of the many cool things I get to work on is helping to promote DEV original podcasts on a weekly basis. For me, this is a fun combination of social media strategy, community engagement, and writing/research.
I'd love to hear your ideas about how we should be supporting podcasts and podcast creators here on Forem:
What would you like to see? What features would make your distribution AND/OR listening experience better here?
On a related note, the other day, I noticed a comment on our DevNews announcement post asking for more insight on producing/distributing our podcasts:
I'm currently chatting with a few of my teammates at Forem about this possible series which would likely involve interviewing our awesome producer, @levisharpe , for a multi-part series on creating a podcast from beginning to end including ideating and distributing.
I'd like to ensure that this series embodies the values of Forem: sharing knowledge with the community in a way that makes our efforts and initiatives repeatable for everyone — but I need your help:
Let me know if you have thoughts on how to make a series of articles on podcast-creation as helpful as possible. What burning questions do you have about producing and promoting podcasts? I'd love to hear from you whether you're a seasoned expert or a podcasting novice!
Finally, if you want to hear what the creators/contributors of our podcasts have been able to create, please check the brand new DevNews podcast (shoutout to the hosts Saron Yitbarek, @vaidehijoshi , and @joshpuetz ) and our first original podcast, DevDiscuss, today!
P.S. Season two of DevDiscuss starts this upcoming week!!
