Jabriel: Hi, my name is Jabriel AlSuhaimi.

2

:

I'm an independent podcaster, DJ,

content creator, creative strategist,

3

:

a bunch of different things, and I'm

on a lifelong journey of constant

4

:

creation, collaboration, and learning.

5

:

And today I'm going to give you

a tip about batching, scheduling,

6

:

and using a content calendar.

7

:

I like to consider myself as

somewhat of a jack of all trades.

8

:

I like to throw myself into

new things and challenge myself

9

:

to be better going forward.

10

:

In terms of podcasting, I've

helped launch shows like curious

11

:

humans with Johnny Miller founders

for good with Craig Turner.

12

:

And I'm currently the producer,

editor, and co host of the Movie

13

:

Newbie which is a film review podcast.

14

:

Podcasting has been a part of my life

since I was about nine years old when my

15

:

parents got an iPod and I just stumbled

across this podcast called the muggle

16

:

cast, which was basically a Harry Potter

podcast that, um, I think people used to

17

:

phone in and record the podcast that way.

18

:

I think that was about 2009.

19

:

And then since then, I've basically

forgot about the medium until:

20

:

uh, I was in buenos Aires in Argentina.

21

:

And I met this amazing podcast producer.

22

:

Her name is Ninah Kopel and she introduced

me to the world of podcasting of, and what

23

:

it was like at the time and introduced me

to the shows like cereal, this American

24

:

life, a lot of American based podcasts,

and then fast forward to graduating from

25

:

my bachelor's program, it was towards

the end of:

26

:

work in music, although at the time

there was a little pandemic that hit.

27

:

And it was called COVID 19.

28

:

So I was jobless working out of my parents

house and I basically fell into podcasting

29

:

and the editing side of podcasting.

30

:

And it's basically changed my life

and I haven't looked back since.

31

:

So that's how I got into podcasting.

32

:

I think the biggest thing for me about

podcasting, it's that it's a medium that

33

:

anyone can do with very little barriers

to entry, at least for the moment.

34

:

I think anyone can create a podcast.

35

:

They can basically do it at home and do a

make believe podcast with their friends.

36

:

It's something that kids can probably do.

37

:

Anyone of any age can do.

38

:

And I, that's probably the

main thing that I love.

39

:

Although I think that's something

that's starting to change with a lot

40

:

of bigger companies coming into it.

41

:

It's making podcasting a

little bit scarier to start.

42

:

But for me.

43

:

I think everyone should

try it at least once.

44

:

I think one of the best things you can

do when starting a podcast is learning

45

:

how to manage the way you create.

46

:

So one thing for me as someone who can be

a little bit messy with the way I go about

47

:

my day, I think batching and scheduling

your podcast is very, very important.

48

:

So what I like to do is have a recording

day and editing day and then uh, admin

49

:

day where I'll basically write the show

notes, show summary, um, show description,

50

:

and then there's also a production day.

51

:

So if you can figure out a good schedule

for yourself, like where you think

52

:

you'll be the most productive, and that's

if you're doing everything yourself.

53

:

It could be possible that you're working

with a producer or an editor and...

54

:

Maybe you have to find days that work

with them, or if you have a co host,

55

:

maybe it's a specific day of week where

you need to start recording, but figuring

56

:

out a schedule, batching your content,

and then sticking to that schedule.

57

:

Because one of the most important

things is being consistent.

58

:

And I think consistency in podcasting is

what keeps the audience there, and what

59

:

keeps you motivated to keep on going.

60

:

So, I guess that's my big tip.

61

:
