Podcasting Alone Versus With A Co-host

This is something I've thought about quite a bit. There are a lot of pros to doing a podcast with a co-host. I've done a podcast with a buddy for four years or so. I've tried other video, audio, and podcast projects. It's hard to do solo. There is something great about having a partner in terms of motivation and accountability. It's also lot easier to create content when you are bouncing ideas off of someone else.

The downside is that it can be hard to find someone to partner with who you have good rapport with. Then you have to sync up schedules and make sure that you are on the same page.

Anchor has a feature, I believe, which allows you to find a podcast co-host, which is really fascinating.
