Is your goal to host a radio podcast show? I help new podcasters create a radio show hosted by them. I provide coaching from concept through tech training to broadcasting on KCPK-LP radio station. You ask: HOW do I start with a podcast? Find the person who is looking for you. That is me! It is my job to recruit new radio show hosts for KCPK-LP radio station.
You ask: WHERE do I start? You have access to your goal because you have enlisted me as your coach. So here is the starting work you must put in. Start with how you like to talk to people: Just you talking to listeners, like a free-flow of “thinking outloud? Talking to an interviewee one-on-one? Writing your script and reading it along with your commentary on the ideas, sort of like an audible blog? Engaging in short-form communications like callers calling in and asking you for advice and ideas? Doing a “group-think” approach to a problem? Alternating between music and talk? Recording nature sounds and taking “talk-walks”?
KCPK-LP is old-fashion terrestrial radio which increases your audience outreach with a 24 hour 7 day a week simulcast internet stream. KCPK-LP is an affiliate with Pacifica Network of 200 other FCC licensed radio station with whom your radio show can be syndicated to increase your audience outreach.

What is the Format of the Podcast?
The Solo Show: Also known as the monologue. You don’t on anyone else to record your episodes, and you’re building a reputation as the authority on your subject. The podcast is also exclusively yours, so you can make calls on sponsorship and monetization.
The Co-Hosted Show: Presenting alongside a friend or colleague. Challenges: Not only do you need to set aside time to record, but that time must also be suitable for your co-host. There’s also the question of ownership.
The Interview Show: Doing an interview show gives you the opportunity to have a chat with someone you admire. Bonus: Your guests will have their own audiences who may listen to the interview. You can grow an audience this way. Interviewing is a skill that you will may need to develop to gain potential guests. You also need to rely on technology (like Skype).
The Roundtable: One regular host and a number of guests, talking through one specific topic. The
Documentary: A narrator walks you through a range of interviews, conversations and on-location
clips to discuss topics.
The DocuDrama: A mix between drama and documentary which offers learning and info, but in an entertaining way.
