Who are you and what podcast do you create?

"My name is Ben Schragger and I'm a Podcast Producer at CBS Sports. I produce the Fantasy Football Today Podcast, a year-round podcast providing Fantasy advice."

What tools do you use to record, edit, and publish your podcast?

"Adobe Audition to record and edit; Megaphone to publish."

What's your podcast listening app of choice? Why?

"I primarily listen on Apple Podcasts, but I really enjoy trying a variety of apps. Apple was the first podcast app that I ever listened on, which is why I have a soft spot for listening there."

What advice do you have for new podcasters?

"I think two things are most important: preparation and interaction with listeners. The flow of the conversation can be guided by a well-prepared rundown, ensuring that key topics are covered in a way that's enjoyable for the listener. Connecting with listeners is essential, as a main goal of podcasters should be to build a community that listeners enjoy being a part of regularly. A great place to engage is on social, expanding the community beyond just the headphones."

"Connecting with listeners is essential..." — Ben Schragger
