Calling Catholic Podcasters! Here’s how we can help you grow!

by | Jul 27, 2020 | Latest, Sneak Peek

We’re re-inventing how Catholics handle online events, and want Catholic podcasting to be a part of it.

Here’s the idea: most online events do all their own posts. Run their own Facebook fan page and email list.

Everyone’s afraid to collaborate. What happens? Reach stays small, audience engagement is small, and speakers don’t get to shine.

That’s not good for anyone.

And then there’s you on the other hand, working hard to have fun, grow your podcast, and share your message.



In fact, during our last event, one of our speakers is also a podcaster. He did something incredibly smart.

Without being asked, he scheduled interviews for the next 2 months with all the speakers at the event (watch them here!). He and his audience is now growing. He’s got a plan. And our event gets plenty of promotion.

Let’s partner with you to get the word out, help me host live Q&As with speakers, and join me in hosting these events.

You win by reaching a ton of people, getting interviews with speakers you couldn’t normally reach, and get regular access to our community to grow yours.

We believe that Catholics need to network and collaborate! So here’s the breakdown:

  1. You join our private group and email list called the ‘Podcast Corps’ (kinda like a press corps at galas and launch events). You get first access to event releases and speaker interviews. We will then share your episodes with our community.
  2. You get to host as many live Q&As with our speakers as you want during our events. That’s part of our ‘No Speaker Left Behind’ program.
  3. You also get first-access to our Evangelion Season 1 lineup. Read about it here.

Our speakers aren’t great with tech. In fact, they’d rather not deal with it at all. Even the A-grade veterans who’ve been on radio for years. They just want to show up and chat.

Some of our recent events had dead space where speakers hosted their own live Q&As for the first time. That’s why the ‘No Speaker Left Behind’ means every panel or Q&A session come with a podcast host – someone good at keeping convos going.

Here’s how I see it being worth your time. And why it’s absolutely worth it to us.

  • You get to reach a ton more people to promote your podcast and position yourself as an expert.
  • You get to make a speaker’s day by helping them shine before the audience.
  • Plenty of our speakers are new voices, working hard to build their communities. You get to be the early-adopters that help them shine.
  • Lastly, you get to be our breaking news anchors to the Catholic world.

The more we do cool stuff, the more we all have to talk about.

And I’d much rather share your posts with everyone than ours, so that we all win.

Who is the Podcaster–also speaker in the conference–who scheduled interviews with the event speakers, and where can we find the podcast interviews or access the podcast? I’m really interested in listening! I have a long drive and listen mostly through audio.. Will you post the podcasts here too?

[…] Every episode is hosted by a different podcast host. (Read about our Podcast Corps?) […]

Even though he hasn’t released any new episodes in a while, I’m going to give a shout out to Dave DiNuzzo’s TrueManhood podcast.
