There Are No Nice Guys hosted by Laura Coronado

Laura Coronado combines her skills in marketing, fashion, and lifestyle to create a complete podcasting package.

I love the combo audience Laura has cultivated with her show. In one earbud, single women tune in to learn from other single women in today's dating scene. The other earbud? Men subscribing to learn how to be better suitors. There's something for everyone in today's edition!

Some housekeeping

I wanted to take a moment to thank my friends and colleagues that have helped me connect with others in the Audio industry over the last few weeks. I was laid off by Castos, which thrust me back into the job hunt scene. I'm very fortunate to have some great connections in the WordPress & podcasting space.

Special shoutout to Steph Fuccio for connecting me with others in her network and James Cridland for mentioning it on Podnews. I should be finding a new role soon. 🙏

Summarize your show for us

There Are No Nice Guys is a podcast about divorce, dating, sex, and what happens when single women realize there are no nice guys.

Why do listeners subscribe to your podcast?

It depends on the listener, but I think single women subscribe to my podcast because they want to know that other single women out there have the same dating experiences.

They want confirmation that they’re not crazy and to feel less alone. Men, both married and single, have told me that they subscribe because they want insight into single women.

What makes your approach to podcasting different from others?

My approach is simply relatable and transparent. I am a single woman, just like my main audience. I share my stories, perspectives, and experiences boldly and with vulnerability.

I'm straightforward and I don't sugarcoat anything. Lastly, I'm not toxic and if I feel I'm being such, I honestly call myself out on it and tell my audience, "Don't be like me!"

What do you hope listeners gain from your show?

The most important thing to me is that single women feel less alone. They're not crazy. Yes, dating apps are unsafe. Yes, dating is weird and messed up. Yes, it IS a red flag when a guy shows up to a date wearing cargo shorts and then proceeds to place his leftovers in his pockets. (That's a true story that happened to my friend who has been a guest on my show twice.)

All I want is for a listener to walk away knowing she's not the only one struggling. We're all in it together. I want my podcast to be a part of her support system.

What does your podcast legacy look like?

Hopefully, my podcast is a part of the movement to remove the stigma of being single and inspire women to continue to increase their standards. A single woman is more likely to be happy alone than she is if she settles for someone who is beneath her standards.

There is data that proves that.

What's the best piece of advice you have for other podcasters?

Take the responsibility and commitment you have for your audience seriously. Do your research. Learn how to pronounce your guests' names in advance of the interview. Provide content that has value. Don't waste your audience's time. Give them food for thought or information that empowers them.

What software do you use to produce your podcast?

•Google Docs to write episodes
•Gmail to communicate with guests and send interview questions in advance
Zencastr to record online interviews
Audacity to record in-person interviews, solo episodes, and for editing everything
Anchor for distribution
WordPress, of course, for my website. Hosted on CloudFlare.
