091: Office Hours… Industry Jargon, Preparation & Mindset for New Podcasters

“And then the trick is to know when you have thought enough about it… and it is time to say YES, because there’s the coaching camp that says, ‘Just do it. Just start before you’re ready. Just record something and put it out there. Don’t overthink it.’ And I think, ‘Incorrect. Please, please think about what you’re doing before you just put it out there.'”

~Andrea Klunder, Your Podcast Boss

Recently I introduced you two the delightful power-packed podcasting duo Stacie Lampkin and Mike Palazza of the forthcoming podcast, Healthcare Behind the Scenes.

If you haven’t already, go back and check out Episode 090, which is part 1 of our Office Hours coaching session.

Then meet me right back here to learn more about:

  • how to navigate industry jargon on behalf of your listeners,
  • how to choose your podcast format (i.e. listening experience),
  • defining your interview style

Then we try to pin down exactly HOW MUCH preparation you need to do before you just go ahead and put your masterpiece out into the world!

Plus a tough love mindset pep talk from Your Podcast Boss!

“If you’re not willing to go on that growth and change and evolve with how things are, you’re going to give up because it’s just not going to be as rewarding.”

~Andrea Klunder

A refresh to give you some context for Part 2 of my “Office Hours” session with Stacie and Mike.

  • Stacie and Mike have a passion for educating folks on both sides of the healthcare equation: patients and practitioners.
  • Their combined professional knowledge––Stacie’s a pediatric pharmacist turned patient advocate, Mike, a social worker––and experience receiving care make are access points for the audience. 
  • They’re committed to showcasing guest-oriented, story-driven advocacy solutions.

Here are two hot tips from this episode:

Strategies for handling topic-specific jargon depend on your listener. Refer back to item one; it’s all connected. This is why thinking irl terms beats avatars.

Be willing to grow and change. Every podcast, every host is a WIP. Give yourself and your show space to evolve organically.
