My client has been interviewed on various different audio platforms including spotify. He would like to house all of these recordings in one place - is this even possible and if so where, how?? I have no idea as I don’t have any experience in podcasts. Many thanks in anticipation. Rx
Probably the best thing would be to get the original files from those that interviewed him and then if they want it for safekeeping, to put it on a drive.
I would think you’d want some sort of permission to host those podcasts somewhere, even if on your own website. As those who interviewed your client may not want a competing podcast from them saved elsewhere?
Hi @eternalkaz - it’s not for safekeeping, it’s to use as content, just like uploading video interviews onto YouTube. Would this equate to a competing podcast as it would be from various different podcasters and podcast platforms but all with the same person ie my client? Rx
this is what I do - I have a YouTube PLAYLIST called something like “Interviews with Phyllis” and then HOPEFULLY everyone who has interviewed me on video or a podcast puts it on YouTube - then I just add that to MY playlist. Works great because you have a dedicated URL for this playlist and can share it around or embed it on the client’s website so people can see how good they are being interviewed.
Is this what you are hoping to set up @rachel1 ?
You can always POST anybody’s YouTube video as a Community Post too
Similarly to what @phylliskhare is saying, you can always share these podcasts to other platforms. I just wouldn’t save them personally and then go upload them somewhere else as if it was my own content.
If you have your own website you could link out to them as a hub for podcast episodes the client has been in.
Well, it’s been some time since you posted this @phylliskhare, and thank you for doing so. My sincere apologies for not responding sooner but I have only just got back around to looking at this. Been crazy busy this end.
OK, I’ve worked out how to save to a playlist - go me!! What about the ones that are on spotify but not on YouTube - anyway of saving them to a playlist?? Rx
I did a search for my name on Youtube - found this one - clicked the three dots – clicked Save to Playlist - found the Interview Playlist and saved. Then you can arrange where you want it on the Playlist. Makes SURE the playlist is marked as Public and NOT Private @rachel1
That’s how I was doing it when I found them. I’ll go and search interviews with his name, I only typed in his name, so maybe the word interview will help - good shout @phylliskhare - thank you.
I’ve also added the Spotify link URL to the ‘about section’ which links directLY through to his Spotify account. Rx
Me again, sorry
It seems from reading a few articles that to optimise/customise a Spotify account you have to have an artist’s account with one song on it! Is that correct or is there any way around this?
I have a client who wants to showcase podcasts, radio interviews and other audio work and I’m wondering which platform would be the best to achieve this? He has Spotify but wonders if this is the right/wrong platform, he also has YouTube.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Any advice on this one folks?? Rx
Not sure about spotify. The easiest way seems to be making a playlist on YouTube as it can host all the things you mentioned above.
