Brandy currently releases a weekly 40-minute episode, but she’s thinking about adding shorter mini episodes to hook more listeners. Is this an effective way to build your audience or your community? Or it just yet another thing that takes too much time?

[PS: This is the cutest stock image I’ve ever gotten to use. Thank you, Haute Stock.]

By the end of this episode, you’ll learn…

  • How mini-episodes (sometimes called minisodes) can help you grab new listeners’ attention
  • Why Brandy chooses to live stream her podcast episodes, and how it helps her cut down on some perfectionist tendencies
  • Why it’s so important to create two-way communication between your podcast and your community, especially in our very digital age
