Hurricane Sandy was an eye-opening experience for Harry Duran and it really got him out of his comfort zone.

The Podcast Producers welcomes Harry Duran of the Podcast Junkies onto the show. Harry's podcast is incredibly unique in both style and vibe. You feel like you're able to let loose and relax into your chair whenever you listen to his show. We invited this Podcast Junkie on the show today to get to know him a little bit better. Harry believes that the 15-20 minute mark is when an interview tends to hit the sweet spot and start to get good. He also loves to interview people with the video on so that he can see his guests' reactions to his thought-provoking questions.

Why Aren't You a Podcast Junkie Yet?

This week Podfly is fist bumping Harry Duran, the co-host of Podcast Junkies aka The Podcaster's Voice. Harry's podcast is a podcast about podcasting! Although the description of his show might raise a few eyebrows, it's well worth the listen. His show ranges from an hour to an hour and a half long, but Harry's interviewing style makes the time just fly by.

Fun fact: A good chunk of the Podfly team owns Harry’s infamous yellow Podcast Junkies t-shirt. Next time you see Harry at a conference, bug him for one!

Harry's show really helps you get to know the hosts behind the podcasts and why they do what they do. When you sit down to listen to a show, you almost end up discovering a completely new identity of the host. We get to know what their childhood was like, some of their favorite hobbies, and the detailed origin story of how they ended up creating their podcast. Podcast Junkies is also a great way to find new podcasts that expand your mind, soul, and everything else in between. If you're a real fan of the medium, then why not be a Podcast Junkie fan too?

Our very own Corey Coates had a great convo with Harry for The Podcast Producers series. Here's the Raw & Uncut chat!

Harry is originally from Yonkers, New York, but currently resides in L.A. Growing up, he fell heavily in love with DJing and was often the guy lugging around his equipment in milk crates at highschool parties. He loves electronic and house music, and, of course, being a Podcast Junkie. Wanna know more about Harry? Listen to episode 64 where Dan Lizette guest hosts and interviews Harry himself.
