It’s hard. You have to know what you’re doing. You have to know people. You have to have relationships. People have to trust you. But there’s no minimum for selling an ad. You just have to be smart, savvy, committed and confident.” (18:06) (Mathew) “I always found podcasting interesting because it’s basically the same thing [as radio] but without the restrictions of Broadcasting, and the FCC, and time limits, and all that nonsense.” (26:43) (Mathew) “The problem is people in radio think that radio is the end all be all, the same way that people in broadcast television think that broadcast television is the end all be all. And what they don’t understand is that it’s not about the technology or the delivery system.” (35:06) (Mathew) “I’m a big fan of the idea of localized content. I think that is a space that needs deep exploration.” (52:50) (Mathew)Resources Mentioned Podcast Junkies Website: Podcast Junkies YouTube: Podcast Junkies Facebook Group: Podcast Junkies Facebook: Podcast Junkies Twitter: Podcast Junkies LinkedIn: The Podosphere: <a...
