Ampel recently joined many of our colleagues in the podcast agency world to contribute to Co-host 2023 report on the state of podcast agencies. This exhaustive report sought to review the tools, challenges and processes affecting the podcast production industry and explores the biggest ideas and trends from podcast leaders, including me. Oh, hang on, I have to read my quote. Oh yeah. Okay. "Agencies who treat their clients audio channel more like LinkedIn for your ears rather than check out our new podcast will deliver better results to their clients." If you're curious about what us agency folk think and how we operate, this is actually quite an interesting read.
Are you interested in the podcast game? Maybe you're interested in dipping your toe in with an idea you've been thinking about for a while. It's true that having the right expert team can help you make the most of your sound, but we know that sometimes employing a team isn't actually available to you financially. And so that's why we've pulled together a few tricks and list of some things to get you started. First, invest in good equipment. Second, choose a quiet room. Edit your audio, script it, and the fifth - Whatever it is you make must sound different. Please don't be afraid to make some bold choices to make sure that your voice is heard.
Harry: Hi, my name is Harry, and I've been interning at Ampel for the last little short while. I've been asked to share with you guys a podcast recommendation. And out of all the podcasts out there, the one that's gotten my attention and many around the world is Red Scare. Red Scare is a clever podcast that pretty fearlessly tackles culture and politics, brought to you by Dasha and Anna, who record from their apartment in New York City. They cover everything from Sydney Sweeney to dissecting the definition of wokeness to a hilarious impression of Zelensky. Red Scare is a delightful blend of humor, politics and pop culture.
Josh: That's all we got time for. So if you want to know how you can make waves in sound, send us a note. HearHere@ampel.com.au
