Do You Need a Podcast Co-host? – PCI 349

Do you need (or want) a podcast co-host?

First off, you do not need a podcast co-host. The beauty of podcasting is that anyone can do it and the barrier to entry is incredibly low, this includes doing content by yourself. Here are some pros and cons of having a podcast co-host.

Today’s Hosts: Todd Cochrane and MacKenzie Bennett

Reviewing the pros and cons of having a podcast co-host


  • Content collaboration
  • Less stress involved in execution
  • A fun working relationship with a colleague, friend, etc.
  • Consistent tone and messaging coming from the show
  • Delegated responsibilities
  • Conversations and content flow better as opposed to speaking to yourself

Technology advancements have greatly changed multi person podcast capabilities.


  • Less creative control with a co-host
  • Sharing monetary earnings
  • No legal disputes over intellectual property and content if you do not have a co-host
    • Basically any kind of legal issue that may arise
  • How to end the show or part ways

Not everyone will be interested in having a podcast co-host and for good reason. Not all shows are meant to have that duo (or more) dynamic and that’s one of the great things about podcasting, you can forge ahead at your own pace and create a wonderful podcast all on your own.
