All of that begins with your persona. What you now know that many podcasters don't is that your persona doesn't develop by accident. Do You Need (or Want) a Co-Host? Your decision about whether or not to have a co-host for your podcast is entirely subjective; ultimately, there's no answer that's definitively right or wrong. There are a number of plausible reasons for going it alone: • You may value the flexibility of not having to coordinate with another person to create a show • Your vision for your podcast may be a very personal one that would not easily accommodate another personality • Your podcast is specifically designed to promote you as a personality or some product or service you're involved with • Your kindergarten report card said, "Does not play well with others" On the other hand, there are some great reasons to have a co-host: • Your podcast was conceived as a joint venture with someone you like or someone with whom you share a business interest • You want to balance a couple of different perspectives • You know someone who can bring some quality or expertise to your podcast that you can't provide by yourself • You want to share the workload of regularly producing a podcast with someone else If you decide to have a co-host for your podcast, there are a few rules you'll want to keep in mind to make the arrangement work as well as possible for you, your co-host, andmost importantlyfor your listeners.

Your show can be exactly as long as it needs to be to cover your material…and not a moment longer.

There are several elements that are regularly featured in that podcast: • Technical banter • Non-technical banter • Podsafe music • Mashups • Promos for other podcasts Curry tries to mix these elements in a way that keeps his listeners' attention. That variety doesn't happen by accident. It's the result of a show prep process that follows the principles we've discussed here. Keep an Eye on the Clock As a podcaster, you don't have the same kinds of time constraints that radio personalities have.
