Q & A with Alexa from My First Kiss
When did you start podcasting?
I just launched My First Kiss in late July. So I started my podcasting journey this summer.
What made you think about starting a podcast?
I am a storyteller. Everyone would always tell me that I’m super random, charismatic, and most of all … a storyteller!
For the past seven years, I’ve been into videography and audio production, and it has grown into a passion. Why not turn it into a show of some sort?
I dabbled with the idea of having a YouTube channel (which I plan to start as well) and starting a podcast.
After months of having a vision, planning, and self-doubt, I just went for it!
What’s the name of your show and what is it about?
My podcast is called “My First Kiss.”
My show features fun, hilarious, deep, and scandalous stories about dating, love life, work, and life.
Think of it as a conversation with your friends over wine, or a diary. Hence the name “My First Kiss.”
I also can’t wait to have guests on my show to share their craziest stories!
So if you’re interested, let me know!
What’s your podcast setup?
My current setup consists of 3 MOANO PM320S Studio Condenser XLR Microphones, which were pretty cheap for the great quality — 60.99 on Amazon.
I use a MaonoCaster LITE audio interface.
It was 112.00 on Amazon and pretty good for a starter audio interface.
Then, I also have an assortment of studio lights, which were about $40 on Amazon.
The camera I use is my first camera, one that I’ve had for years (Canon Rebel t6i).
For editing software, I use Adobe Audition. I’ve been using Audition for a couple of years now and I love it!
How have you promoted your podcast?
I am in a number of Facebook groups that allow for podcast promotion on certain days and that has certainly helped.
I follow a lot of other podcasts on Instagram and it allows me to form connections and network, which is AWESOME!
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
How supportive and helpful the podcast community is.
Everyone has been so kind and nothing short of encouraging.
It really helps and goes a long way!
