Welcome To The Towncast Podcast!

Welcome To The Towncast Podcast!

In our first episode, host "Towncast" Joe Gangemi tells you what the Towncast Podcast is all about. To put it simply, our goal is to teach you how to launch a podcast - or a towncast - of your own. We’ll do this through topical episodes where we cover one aspect of the podcasting craft at a time - from the fundamental to the advanced.

Don’t know what a Towncast is? Quite simply, it’s a form of content - usually a podcast - that is specifically intended for a geo-local community. Think a podcast, but tailor-made for a particular town, city, or state.

In some episodes, Towncast founder Mathew Passy will sit down with podcasters who are already successfully producing geo-local, community-focused content. In some cases, these shows have already been running for almost 10 years!

As you’ll discover in this episode and future ones, the possibilities for towncasting are only limited to the people, the places, and stories that are outside your door.

Some of the points we cover in this episode:

  • The premise of the Towncast Podcast
  • What is towncasting anyway?
  • Some ideas on how to start a local podcast of your own
  • Joe opens up about his past struggles with social anxiety/fear of public speaking
  • Some thoughts on the philosophy and theory behind podcasting

This episode’s bonus takeaway: If you could share one message with the world, what would it be?
