2 Reasons to Start a Podcast

There are many reasons why you might want to start a podcast and if your heart's in the right place, then you should definitely do your research and start one! Here are just two reasons for starting a podcast:
1. Get the word out there
There are things out there in the world that are just not being discussed, at least not in podcasts. Some people prefer to listen than to read or watch, so audible reading is really up-and-coming and you're lucky to be surrounded by great content and technology that could kickstart your career. So, if you have an idea that could benefit people that no one's talking about or the detail isn't there, then why not take initiative and start your own podcast?
2. You keep thinking about it
Listen, it doesn't matter if your idea is already out there or not. If you're thinking about it and it's stuck in your heart, then it means you have a different take on the subject or topic. So, don't wait for the podcast to start itself, because you have a lot to say. There are not too many podcasts out there and your audience has a different opinion about every podcaster, so why wouldn't they choose you? You have the motivation, and you give your audience confidence and comfort through your podcast.
