How To Create A Podcast That is Bingeworthy with Julie Lokun and Julie Riga

In this episode of the Media Casters podcast, Julie Riga and Julie Lokun discuss binge-worthy podcasts.

They start by talking about what makes a podcast binge-worthy, with Julie Riga suggesting that such podcasts are different and can hold the attention of the listener for more than 2.5 seconds.

They agree that there are many podcasts out there, some of which are below par. Julie Lokun admits to being addicted to Smartless, a podcast featuring Jason Bateman, and also loves true crime podcasts. Julie Riga, on the other hand, talks about how she was recently addicted to the TV series Manifest. The hosts discuss how podcasters can make their content more binge-worthy by leaving the audience with something to grab onto, such as high energy or tips, tricks, and techniques. They suggest researching the competition and taking one’s podcast to the next level. Julie Riga mentions some of her other favorite podcasts, including Crime and Cookies Juice, No Title Necessary, Gary Vaynerchuk’s podcast, and Gold Digger with Jenna Kutcher. Julie Riga’s podcast, Ingredients for Success, is also mentioned.
