When you create your podcast on your own, you feel a sense of accomplishment. Even if it's not perfect, maybe a little rough around the edges... that sense of pride you feel is well-deserved.
When you share it with your friends, unless they are bunch of dicks, they'll pat you on the back and tell you what a good job you did. Because they are friends. Many of whom haven't made their own show, so you're already better than them.
But members of the general public aren't your friends and will, often times, be a little harsh. Not because they are bunch of dicks (OK, some are), but because they are becoming more discerning in their tastes, and less forgiving of "quaint" mistakes your friends over look.
In this short episode, I equate all of this to home improvement projects. Which works. I think?
