Why you shouldn't start a podcast
Podcasting is a great way to get your message out into the world but it’s also a lot of hard work.
For every show that’s listened to by millions of people, there are hundreds with an audience consisting of the host and his or her mum.
So before you buy the latest gear, don the headphones, and start sprinting towards your dreams of podcasting glory, I share some questions you should ask yourself to work out whether you should start a podcast.

My name is Rachel Corbett and I've worked professionally for almost two decades in radio and podcasting. I've worked in front of the mic hosting and presenting radio shows for some of the biggest networks in Australia and I’ve been at the helm of over ten podcasts including Lady Startup, Eligible, Before The Bump, You’ve Gotta Start Somewhere and Google APAC’s first podcast, Rethink.
You can find all my podcasts at rachelcorbett.com.au/podcasts.
I’ve also worked behind the mic as Head of Podcasts for Mamamia, where I grew the podcast network from 15 to over 35 shows, the team from two to nine producers and quadrupled the audience to over 90 million downloads and over one million unique listeners a month.
I’m currently Head of Podcasts & Digital Content at Nova Entertainment and Founder of the best practice online podcasting course, PodSchool.
So, if you're looking for someone who knows about podcasting, you've come to the right place.
