Do you ever feel like you are running out of things to talk about in your podcast?
You are not alone. I hear this challenge from a lot of podcasters.
The good news is that there’s gold hiding in your past episodes!
I’ve talked before about how to use past topics to inspire fresh topic ideas (check out episode 056 “How to Brainstorm your Podcast Ideas” or episode 024 of Just One Tip “5 Ways to Generate Podcast Topic Ideas”) but thought I would share this tip again because a client of mine recently had an epiphany.
She listened to her trailer and was reminded of a whole bunch of stuff she had planned to talk about but hadn’t yet covered.
Suddenly she was filling in her content calendar with juicy topics.
You might be surprised how much inspiration is lurking in past episodes.
Now, before you get bent out of shape and start saying things like, ‘Coach, I’ve talked about everything already!’ Let me reassure you that there is huge value in revisiting, updating, or remixing your ideas.
Think about some of the best known thought leaders. They don’t stop talking about something because they’ve mentioned it once. Heck no! They keep talking about it.
Can you imagine? “Oh, I did a Ted Talk on that topic so I’m not going to bother talking about that again…” Neil deGrasse Tyson isn’t going to talk about space anymore because he already talked about it once or twice. Jillian Michaels already did an episode on weight loss so she’s done with that topic.
Madness, I tell you.
Re-sharing your ideas in new and fresh ways is not repetitive. It’s not laziness. It’s called being consistent and that’s called having a strategy!
In this episode, I share a few ways for you to mine your old topics and episodes. Hit play and then head into your back catalog, heck listen to your own trailer again, and start jotting down opportunities to refresh and reshare some topics.
