Let's build a Virtue Rolodex of Artists/Authors/Passionate Experts today!

Talking Podcasting with Andrew Allemann

Yesterday, I spent a delightful hour talking with Andrew Allemann, founder of I’d like to share some of the highlights of our discussion.

Andrew identified a much-needed service. I can’t tell you how much time I’ve spent searching for podcasts that were still on the air–we’ll just leave it at frustrating countless hours! When I would find a podcast that I would like to be a guest on, I would carefully craft my pitch and send an email. In the majority of the times, I would receive no answer from the host or a response that confirmed my suspicion that the podcast was no longer active.

Andrew is a blogger and podcaster. As he discusses in this interview, he started because he was tapping out his Rolodex of connections and began searching for a new set of guests to interview. He spent that same amount of time I have and then decided to create this service. I joined up and then asked Andrew to join me on All Things Creative.

I found out some exciting information from Andrew. First, I found out my audience is quite exceptional. Many of my podcasts have been downloaded from 2500-3000 times–meaning I have that amount of listeners! He provided that the median number of listeners falls in the 200-300 range. Art Chat/All Things Creative ranks in the top 20% when it comes to the number of listeners. If that isn’t awesome enough, consider this perspective. If you could get the number of your listeners (so, let’s roughly say 2500 of you) all sitting in one room for a presentation, would you be excited about that? You bet you would!

With that in mind and knowing some folks just aren’t interested in organizing a podcast every week or month, let me ask you this. If you could talk about your book, art, maybe your a voracious reader who would like to talk about the books you are reading, or whatever your passion is, wouldn’t be awesome to be able to share that with an average of 200-300 people? Well–then maybe you should become a guest on the right podcast. can help you get linked up with those appropriate shows!

Now, as I noted above, I have joined at the premium level. When listening to the show, you’ll hear Andrew and I talk about building the art side of this business.

Creation of Art Chat Library!

We figured it was about time.  After all we’ve been on the one in one form or another for about two years now.  Each show brings new insight and new listeners.   Our latest effort that was aired with our new partners at F+W Media’s Artist Network was on February 14th and is being very well received.  In fact we are on path to break the all time listens record.  But we are getting off topic.   Now you can visit the Art Chat Library and listen to any of our past shows!  One stop shopping so to speak!   As we complete new shows, they will be added to the Art Chat Library.   Organization is a good thing and we hope you enjoy the shows and the convenience.

You can find the link to the Art Chat Library on the menu bar above or by selecting this link.
