The Podomatic Feature Series
This week, we spoke with DucksNPucks podcast
to get the cold hard facts about starting a Hockey Podcast.
These folks have been cheesing greasy wristers from the blue line since 2014 and always
have fresh episodes for us hockey fans!
Check out the podcast here!
1. When, how, and why did you start podcasting?
DucksNPucks podcast was started in the summer of 2014 before the 2014-15 NHL season to compliment DucksNPucks.com which was started earlier in the year to cover the Anaheim Ducks and NHL through written articles and social media. The podcast gives fans a place to ask questions about the Anaheim Ducks and hockey. [It] was also designed as a place for news and hot topics for hockey fans. There weren’t many options in terms of podcasts that covered the Ducks. To this day there still isn’t an official podcast run by the Ducks hockey team.
2. How did you pick a subject/topic?
The topic for the show was chosen based upon the DucksNPucks articles and social media that were already covering the team and sport of hockey. We also decided to cover the NHL and sport of hockey in general so the show wasn’t just focused on the Anaheim Ducks.
3. Advice for people that haven’t pressed record yet?
The biggest advice we can give to someone that wants to do podcasting is to first find a topic that is big enough to develop a decent-sized audience. If the topic for the show is too narrowly focused, then it might be difficult to build a following. Also, do some research in regards to technology and test out the equipment before trying to record an actual show. In the beginning, we went through some growing pains trying to use different types of equipment and different recording methods.
