So far, here’s what we found out about Podcast Listening Habits in Nigeria.
So we kicked off the Tony Doe Radio Bootcamp on Saturday, July 4, 2018. The participants were close associates [Seyi Olaleye, Iruo Umusu & Ibrahim MB], mostly involved in web and game development.

This was the most mature class encountered yet, but I believe there are no age limits to pursuing a career in broadcasting. In fact, there’s always a demographic void or programme category that needs to be filled at one point or the other. And for some of them, taking advantage of New Age broadcast skills could improve their other businesses.
I talked about the benefits of podcasting.
In my hour long ramble, I highlighted the limitless possibilities available when it came to choosing a topic or area of podcasting interest. I mentioned a podcast dedicated to dog owners, not the type of show you would find on regular radio. I shared with an enthusiastic class, though without props sake of say my equipment no folo me come… but with enough body language and dramatization, that each and every one them could develop and share an engaging, interesting podcast. And they would find an audience.
Afterwards, I was approached by a few of them who wanted to know if they could expand their ideas. One had a successful sport betting tip gig running on Whatsapp. He wondered if he could expand it into a podcast. Why not?
Another had been sharing via blogs and social media, encouraging tidbits for Nigerian Startups. Can he turn it into a podcast? Again, why not?
To encourage every bit of action towards achieving a podcast dream, I mentioned that even without the heavy machinery [studio tools], a decent enough smart phone could be useful. There are apps available on the various app stores and even a podcast company has taken steps to make the experience wholesome from recording to editing and then sharing on social media.
