Podcast hosts delve into deep discussions on hot topics and pop culture. Most podcasts focus on one theme or specialization, such as crime, romance, or music. The most entertaining podcast hosts tend to be great conversationalists. They are also good listeners who make their guests feel comfortable and valid in sharing different opinions. They are connectors, creators, and entertainers that enjoy the challenges of researching and sharing what they know in an engaging way.
Becoming a podcast host can be challenging as the market is quite competitive. Most people with successful podcasts have experience working in radio or another communications field. But marketing is also a big factor in increasing engagement for podcasts. Jobs for this role are expected to decline -5% by 2028.
