This week, I sit down with Tony Doe, host of The Tony Doe Podcast, where he chats with radio broadcasters who answer questions fans are curious about.
This audio series is about people from different backgrounds who share their radio stories, and how they feel about the medium’s present and future.
Art Reflecting Life
Tony’s backgroundis in radio, and his show reflects that, with his guests coming from the medium and sharing why they chose radio, and what they’re using it for to share their messages or art.
This is also true for Tony, who has used the pandemic to share his knowledge with younger people, and help them get their break in radio and the audio medium.
Does Podcasting Need More Regulation?
Becauseof his background in radio, Tony is well-versed in what can and can’t be said on public radio. This changes drastically when it comes to podcasting, and he shares some great insights on what he feels are the biggest differences, and how we can bridge them.
It’s a great platform for preparingpeople for radio; but it’s also a great platform for discussingthe things you can’t talk about on radio.
2022 – The Year of the Indie Podcaster?
Tony firmly believes that 2022 is the year that the indie podcaster can shine. While mega-million dollars continue to shape who’s who in the industry, this leaves a gap for the indie podcaster to be truly contextual for their listener, and deliver a more custom listening experience.
The Responsibility of Trust
We spoke about the recent controversy around Joe Rogan, and what that might mean for both podcasters and platforms when it comes to what can be said on a podcast. Tony’s a believer that the audience needs to make an informed choice – but the podcaster also has a big part to play.
Just because I have a podcast doesn’t mean I have to fool you or deceiveyou. I owe you, the listener, the responsibility of trust.
