How to build a profitable podcast.
Let us welcome our bCasters of the week...
This week, are Hyunok Jang & Gerhard Reus with the Koreanischkurs meaning Korean Course - welcome Jang and Gerhard!
Why did you start your podcast?
We thought it would be a great addition to our Korean Language course on YouTube.
Our goal was to provide more material in a less scripted, more conversational manner.
What has been the best thing about running your podcast?
The conversational nature of podcasting provides us with a platform to develop new ideas, insights, and teaching methods in real time. It's also a lot of fun and since there are no guests but only the two of us, we are getting a lot better as a team.
Who is your perfect listener and how do you help them?
We are helping self-learners of the Korean language by providing them with free learning materials.
Have you made a profit from your podcast? If not, do you plan too?
We offer topical online lessons on Zoom, get more subscribers on YouTube where we make money with AdSense, and are in the process of writing a book.
The podcast gives us a great platform to amplify all of that. The supplements in particular will be very valuable when the book release comes around.
What is your favourite thing about podcasting?
I expected podcasting to be like video, only without the image, but the joy I get from the podcast is very different. It feels like podcasting is less pressure and more creative process, which is weird because there should be less creative outlets.

Thanks for sharing Jang and Gerhard - Teaching and learning Korean is not simple, but giving free learning resources is a great motivator for anybody who wants to learn, and with the support of specialists, everything is possible and easier.
Thank you so much for your altruistic help and for sharing your knowledge and thoughts with others.
We're so really grateful to have you!
Thanks for being part of the revolution!
