Any community managers here who have podcast rooms in their coworking spaces? Looking to connect and find out more on the success rate of having one .
We have one at Radius.
At about 170 members, we see only minimal utilization. It’s a great additional call room and good for photography, but the podcast equipment is maybe only used 1-4 times a month.
Part of the reason is that our local Community Access Media station is three blocks away with a very active and successful podcast studio that is slightly better equipped. If they went away, we’d see a lot of new interest. The other reasons are probably the physical space and marketing, if we invested more, we’d probably attract more of the podcasting crowd in the city, and if we marketed the space we might attract users, but we focus primarily on equipping and supporting our members - not day-users for space/equipment.
