Five reasons you might want to start a podcast
- You’ll meet some amazing people. Most podcasts are based on interviews, and having a podcast is a fabulous excuse to interview fascinating people.
- It will help clarify your thinking. You might hesitate to write, but most people don’t hesitate to speak their thoughts. Spending twenty minutes or more to explain something is a great way to understand it.
- You will earn credibility. Our culture gives extra credit to people who are thoughtful, generous and well-spoken.
- It’s a productive habit that gets both easier and more useful as you stick with it.
- It creates an asset, one that people can engage with for years to come.
- (not a reason) To make a fortune. You won’t. But 1 through 5 are a bargain, because you don’t need a permit, a license or a budget. You can simply begin.
Today’s the best day to sign up to join Alex DiPalma and me in the Podcast Fellowship.
We’ve run it twice before, and it works better than anyone expected. We’re assembling a cohort of terrific people all on the same journey–to share their ideas and make a ruckus.
Alex is a significant force in the world of podcasting, with experience at NPR and Midroll, and you couldn’t ask for a more insightful and committed guide. She and I have worked together on the Akimbo podcast for more than a year.
Lessons start this week, so today’s the day. It’s easy to sign up.
Podcasting is a way to find your voice and we’d love to have you join us.
