Podcasting needs to be made better, not just easier. Because after 15 years, less than a quarter of the population listen to podcasts regularly. While new business models, discovery apps, and content curators will evolve, much of the responsibility --and work-- falls on us, the working podcaster. Th… read more


One Week Break - Aug 26, 2019

As much as I don't want to disappoint you, I really need back the three hours each day that this show takes. All is good on my end, but I need to put my head down and focus on my business.

Here's a taste of what's going on:

  • I'm onboarding two new clients at the same time, and that's a lot of work and focus from me. And I can't let those slip, as it's paying clients that afford me the ability to bring you Podcast Pontifications four times a week.
  • I'm giving a presentation about podcasting at Disrupt HR Phoenix this week, and I need to spend many, many hours to prepare for it. If you've ever seen me speak, you know I put a lot of effort into making sure the timing is perfect and that I have every aspect of my stage-game down pat. 
  • In a couple of weeks, I'm headed to Kazahkstan to talk about podcasting at PATA Travel Mart 2019. I haven't even started that preso, because I'm incapable of prepping for two different talks. Thanks, brain.
  • Prior to that, I have an original article due for the print-version of Podcast Business Journal, which I also haven't started. (Side note for Ed: How do people subscribe to the print version?)

So yeah... I'm busy. So is everyone. I don't think I'm special. But I am exercising my own control of my own show, and being a good doobie by letting you know in advance of my little break.

Talk amongst yourselves, and consider buying me a coffee if you like. Also, if you have topic ideas or things you want to talk, is a nifty way to do that.

And if you want to add to my workload, great! Email me at or go to to see a list of the services we offer our clients all around the globe.

The show will be back right after Labor Day!
