Social Media and Why You Should Engage with Your Audience – PF10

June 25, 2016

Mike Rapin (creator and host of the I Read Comic Books podcast) and Jeff chat about why Mike created a Twitter account for his Podcast after a year in, what he does with the account, what he’s seen after using it, and the philosophy of engaging with your audience.

This week is a little different, instead of having a guest talk about their show, I had a specific topic in mind, which was social media and using social media to promote your podcast and engage your listeners. I decided the best person to talk to about this is Mike Rapin, creator and host of I Read Comic Books podcast, because after a year of podcasting they finally decided to create a Twitter account for the show.

We talk about why he did that, what they have done with their Twitter, and the philosophy of using Social Media as well.

One last thing before I finish these notes, I recently got a ticket to Podcast Movement, which if you’re unfamiliar is an enournmous Podcasting Conference. So I will be there July 6th through July 8th. I plan to get interviews with fellow podcasters and more, but I want to know what you want me to do while I am there, whether it is talking to specific people, or going somewhere to eat, let me know! Twitter is best, just tweet @PodcastFiend and I will be sure to get back to you!

I want to say thank you to Mike Rapin for chatting with me, and if you want to learn more about his show I Read Comic Books just go to and listen to their show (all 70 plus episodes).

Social Media has always been a beast of its own, and I am still working on utilizing it more and more. What do you think podcasters should do with social media? What should they *not* do? Tweet me at @PodcastFiend and let me know, I am also on Instagram and Snapchat as well.
