Q & A with John Harrell from Harrell Wrestling Talk Podcast
When did you start podcasting?
My brother Jacob and I, uploaded our first podcast June 13, 2014
Why did you start podcasting?
We have both been long time wrestling fans and were looking for a better way to talk wrestling than blowing up each other’s phone with text messages back and forth.
Then after attending a live show, we thought to ourselves that we could do a podcast. We diid some research and hit the ground running.
What’s your show about?
Harrell Wrestling Talk Podcast is a pro-wrestling podcast that gives you all the latest news, rumors and current events.
We base our format on one of our favorite sports shows, Pardon the Interruption.
We have special segments that promote independent wrestling promotions and wrestlers. Once a month we have a fan come on for our pay-per-view prediction episode.
We try to set our wrestling podcast apart from others by being professional and family friendly.
What’s your podcasting set up? Hardware, software, CMS etc?
We live a hour apart, so we use Skype with Logitech headset/microphones to conduct our show and interviews, and record it with CallBurner.
After we get it recorded we use Adobe Audition for all our editing.
How have you promoted your podcast?
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
Really just what we know now. Neither of us had any experience in podcasting, and we have been learning from our mistakes and are getting better week to week.
So if you like Pardon the Interruption and are a pro-wrestling fan then the Harrell Wrestling Talk Podcast is a must subscribe!
If you have a passion for a sport and have been wanting to share that with others, maybe it’s time for you to podcast! And we’d love for you to host your media with us 🙂
