Essential Listening: Quant Strategies

Posted In: Weekend Reads

One of the interesting things about podcasting is that there are a wide variety of forms. Some podcasts are short and of the moment. Some are simply two people talking about a topic. Others are highly produced and edited and seek to maximize the storytelling punch. In this episode of StartUp from Gimlet Media, Alex Blumberg and company document how they came up with the new idea for a podcast and the amount of time and effort they put into optimizing each episode.

For those interested in taking an even deeper dive into the world of podcasting, Paul Kedrosky (@pkedrosky) recently recommended the The Podcast Dude. Episodes cover topics like audio quality, post production, getting your podcast into iTunes, and what to do when you run out of topics. If nothing else, it shows that there is likely a podcast for any topic in which you may be interested.
