Content is king. The day is here where people use podcasts in the car and public transportation during their morning/afternoon commute or a long drive just as easily as music. Personality is the driving force in this already crowded space. You have to be real, relatable, confident and amusing to connect. Outside of that you must be extremely knowledgeable on a particular subject, the rest can be excused. After you have compelling content and host(s) I believe knowing your audience and how to reach them via social networks and their personal devices gives you a chance for popular profitable show.
