We’re a group of history podcasters who decided to form a community. Our members create podcasts on a wide range of topics and with a variety of styles. As long as it’s about history, it has a home here.
What we do…
Our main focus is a collaborative podcast where we all get to contribute. There are tons of different show concepts and ideas floating around. We do a ‘collage‘ style show where each member contributes a short story. We do interviews, where we get a chance to find out something about the podcasters themselves. We have plans to do other formats, such as a round table discussion on interesting topics.
Most importantly, this group gives us a chance to make friends with like minded people.
The biggest reward is the community itself. Podcasting can be a lonely hobby. But it doesn’t have to be. There are tons of fascinating people out there doing the same thing–the kinds of people you’d love to have a beer with. Friendships have formed, new collaborative podcasts have come into being, and for all of us, the podcast experience has been enriched.
Another advantage is of course the promotional aspect. Each podcaster has a different audiences, and this community gives us a chance to show our wares to a ton of different people who might otherwise have missed us. Many of our podcasters experience impressive spikes in their subscribers when they start contributing.
Sometimes we get businesses who pay good money for podcast ad placements. When this happens, we divvy up the money according to the most recently active contributors to our show. If you contribute regularly, you have a chance to make some money!
I’m in!!! …What’s the next step?
If you’re interested in joining our community, we’re always welcoming new enthusiastic members. Our goal is to be as inclusive as possible, so we don’t have strict requirements. But, in general we expect that you already have a few episodes out (5-8 is a good number).
