I'm just planning on going into this guns blazing, with a mic, a laptop, and an outline. We'll see how it goes
Don't you mean Lazers Blazing!?!?!?
I actually did a short segment on the last episode of my podcast that covers what you're asking. Rather than typing it all out, I'll post a link to the video here cued up to the 12:00 mark when it starts:
I will add a few more things though:
Personally, I'd recommend making it family friendly to reach a larger audience. However, it's up to you. If you decided not to stay PG, I'd recommend making it clear on the onset to listeners, so if they have kids around (which a lot of us do) and they don't want them to hear certain stuff, they know to listen to it when they're around.
And remember: Robotic co-hosts are the latest trend!!!
Also, don't be discouraged if you start out with a very small audience. It is a VERY crowded field out there and you are covering a lesser appreciated system. But on the plus side, be prepared for some listeners just thrilled someone is covering the TG16.
And finally, always keep first things first. For most of us, making a podcast our main job, so if you ever have to delay a show for your work, your health, your family, your faith and so on, that's OK!
