Podcast Advice

Posted by Dr Matthew Anderson @dranderson, Apr 5, 2016

Hi, new to the Social Media Network and excited to be here. I was thinking about starting a podcast for my website on digital/connected health. Any advice, specifically do I need to have my guests sign any type of waiver or consent? As a physician I have not really done this before.

This post by podcast veteran Jack Wallen may be helpful, @dranderson, although he doesn’t answer your question directly: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-dos-and-donts-for-successful-podcasting/

@jkennedy93 in our community is a podcast pro. Janet – any suggestions?

Hi Matthew – Please feel free to reach out to me to “talk shop” about podcasting. I am happy to help. To answer your specific question above – below is the language that I include in all my podcast invitations and confirmations I send to my guests. I ran it by and IP lawyer and she said this should work. I don’t ask my guests to sign anything however.

Recording: By participating in the GetSocialHealth.com interview, you agree to allow Get Social Health LLC to record, edit and distribute the recording in any manner. You also agree that Get Social Health LLC may use some or all of the recording or its content in the future in speeches, webinars, books, courses, and other types of publications.

Hi Matthew – Welcome to podcasting! I’m so excited that you’re going to be joining the fun! I’m also happy to help as much as I can. To be honest, I have never had any of my guests sign a waiver, but Janet’s suggestion is definitely something to keep in mind.

Just in a general sense, as far as starting a podcast (or anything in social media or media in general), ask yourself these questions:
– Who is my target audience?
– What are the goal(s) of the podcast?
– How are you going to try to get the word out about the podcast using traditional means (like word of mouth) or digital means (like Facebook and twitter)

Good luck and feel free to reach out if you want to further discuss!

Hi @julieswenson – Thanks so much for your interest. My podcast is unapologetically called “Dr. The Mike Sevilla Podcast.” In addition to a traditional podcast format, I also place the audio from google hangouts and blabs that I have done in the past. Here is the iTunes link. Thanks again for your interest!
