I constantly meet podcasters and potential podcasters that are obsessed with production quality. Now don’t get me wrong you should try to make your audio and or video quality good but many seem to be attempting to emulate FM Radio or Hollywood Cinema when it comes to video. People do not listen to podcasts, watch videos on youtube or seek out any form of alternative media to be impressed with production quality and great audio effects or stellar cinematography. They want information and entertainment that FM Radio and Hollywood don’t provide, so stop tying to emulate them.
Worse yet are the people who have yet to produce one episode or video because they are trying to “get it perfect”, screw perfect! With out a full crew of professionals perfect doesn’t exist. This type of material needs to be put out several times a week, the focus must be on the audience and giving them the content they are looking for.
