263: My Google Talk: How to start a podcast on the environment

I posted a few Clips from my speaking at Google to my blog. They didn’t video record the whole event, but I did get the audio, so today’s episode is my talk there on how to start a podcast on the environment. For better or worse, it’s over two hours and the audience wasn’t miked so you can’t hear everything, but attendees loved it.

My first goal was for attendees: How to start a podcast—in particular, how to create your first episode. The difference between zero and one episodes is huge, so I designed my talk to minimize the barriers to that first step.

Behind-the-scenes stories of Seth Godin, James Altucher, Nobel laureate Seth Shelden, McKinsey’s Global Managing Director, and other guests intersperse. I share my podcast and overall environmental leadership strategy, explaining why I go for the guests I do.

I share lots of anecdotes of podcast guest, including some early ones, for those of you who recently joined. I share my background on my life as it relates to environmental leadership.

They booked me for over two hours, so I’m not sure how many of you will listen all the way through, but those who do will hear lots of nuggets and you’ll hear me unguarded. The room was as full in the end as the beginning, so attendees found value.

I’ve appeared on one attendee’s podcast already and several others met with me since, so I think it helped.

Attendees weren’t miked so hard to hear them but I think you’ll be able to reconstruct their questions from my answers
