Stay Tuned, Next Week, New Guest

The Wide Wide World Of Podcasts

When I decided that I would jump into this world of podcasts, little did I know all the things that would go into creating one.


I figured I would invite a guest with something that I feel my listeners/readers would enjoy hearing about. So then they call in, and we have a conversation. Simple, right?


Not exactly how it goes. When I invite someone to be a guest, I then have to send this form to give us their bio and let me know a little about the subject we will cover. So far, I have attempted to stick to this; however, we chat about many other things. I use this to prepare. My son says, “Mom, do not read a script” WHAT? Why not? How am I going to remember everything I need to say?”


Finally, we get to the day of recording. Which, by the way, can be weeks ahead of when you hear it. Side note here, my April guest and I talked about all the snow and how cold February has been. Anyway, once my guest and I have our chat, the recording goes to the editor. The editor puts both of our voices together and makes us sound great. I am pretty sure he takes out a lot of the umms and ahhs I have and maybe the paper rattling of my notes. Once that is done, a lot of back-end work happens, and finally, my son gives me a link to the actual podcast. Who knew!


I hope you enjoy March’s podcast. My guest is Kathy Jentz, someone that many of you already know. She is involved in so many things in the Maryland, DC area. Her gardening talks at Behnke’s were some of the most attended. Still giving talks all over the area, she also has a new book coming out this Spring! I can’t wait for you to listen in!


If you have any ideas of other guests I should contact, please let me know.

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
