EP84 - Richard Herring - How to build an audience through podcasting.

July 21, 2017

Richard Herring (@Herring1967) is an English stand-up comedian, writer and recognised as a pioneer of comedy podcasting. He daily blogs his life and is known as a massive advocate of free content and building a path for yourself by finding your audience using the internet. 

We talked about...

  • Moving into the self-funded self-generated content era.
  • How he build a relationship with his audience through podcasting
  • If he thinks he had a “leg up” on other lesser-known comedians getting into podcasting now.
  • What he would do differently if he started now.
  • How he is dealing with his anxiety about coming up with new ideas after doing a “best of” show.



This podcast would be great for anyone who is interested in starting a podcast and how the landscape of online content has changed in the last 5 years.
