If you're thinking of starting your own podcast, hosts of fixed ops shows say it's important to make it sound good, keep it tight and be consistent.
Corey Smith, host of "Fixed Ops 5," tries to keep every episode at 25 minutes or less because he knows his listeners are busy. Also, he knows few topics or guests are engaging enough to hold an audience for an hour.
Like most fixed ops podcasters, Smith worked at a dealership before he attained his current post, national fixed operations training manager at National Auto Care. Unlike other fixed ops podcasters, Smith also is a former DJ.
