Q & A with Liz from Liz’s Healthy Table
When did you start podcasting?
I started podcasting in 2008 with the launch of a show called, Cooking with the Moms. I cohosted that show when I was with Meal Makeovers Mom. That website platform was rebranded in 2017, and the Liz’s Healthy Table blog and podcast were born.
Why did you start podcasting?
I started podcasting before most people even knew what a podcast was! I was looking for a new and exciting way to reach a broader audience. As a registered dietitian and cookbook author with a passion for helping families eat a healthy diet, the podcasting route made sense.
We recorded 297 episodes, and the show was downloaded millions of times! We made a positive impact on people’s lives based on the emails and feedback we received. It was thrilling and exciting, and we never ran out of healthy eating topics.
What’s the name of your show about and what is it about?
My new show was launched in 2017, and it’s called, Liz’s Healthy Table. Here’s how I describe my show:
If you’re looking for a healthy new way to feed your family without hassle or hype, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to my podcast, Liz’s Healthy Table, where I serve up wholesome, flavorful recipes with a tasty side of science, good nutrition, and fun.
I post a new episode every two weeks, and the topics I cover include everything from Fermented Foods—what they are and why your family should eat them—to Eating Meatless More Often, the Instant Pot Craze, and the Magic of Meal Planning.
I invite an expert guest to join me each week, and I always include listener questions, recipes, and supporting Show Notes. I offer lots of giveaways too, especially when cookbook authors and chefs come onto the show.
What’s your podcasting set-up? Hardware, software, CMS, etc.
I record my podcasts using Skype. A piece of software called, Call Recorder, records the interviews. I then send the interview files to my editor at Team Podcast. I use an external microphone and headset.
How have you promoted your podcast?
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
When I started podcasting in 2008, we were new to the game. And with little competition, we pretty much owned the food/nutrition space.
When I launched my new show, I jumped right in. But I wish I had started the new show with more of a splash with several shows and lots of reviews.
By doing that, I might have been featured in New and Notable on iTunes. So in hindsight, I should have been less of an eager beaver and planned a bit better!
