How Long Should A Podcast Episode Be?

This has been such a frequently asked question, that I decided to address it again in this episode of the Delaware Blogger Podcast.

Once you have decided to start a podcast; you’ve chosen a title, topic and your description and you may even have your equipment and are ready to get into the closets to start recording.

However, one of the biggest questions you may have before hitting the record button is, “how long should my podcast episode be?”  How long should I be talking….5 mins...15 mins...30 minutes or even 60 minutes?

Pre-COVID, when podcasting was becoming popular I was taught that it was best to record no more than 28-35 minutes which was a normal commute on a bus, train or in a car, however, now with most people working remotely that has changed...a normal commute is about 13 stairs!

Most people’s commute is from the bedroom to the living room so the attention span got longer which is a good thing because we had so much more time on our hands with nothing to do, vegging out on Netflix became popular so much so that “Netflix and Chill” became a popular phrase.

I will be presenting “Creating a Binge Listening Podcast” at the PodKnow2021 Online Podcasting Conference on June 24th, here is the link if you need tickets https://nycpodcastnetwork.com/conference-speaker/antionette-blake/?1615675517

Just like blogging, if you can say it in 50 words, why write 500 words?

Listen to the entire episode to determine how long your show will be - but remember, you have to “do you boo boo!”
