What is the International Podcast Association?

The International Podcast Association was launched at Podcast Movement 2019. Today I talk with two members of the executive board Liz Covart of Ben Franklin's World and Glenn Hebert from the Horse Radio Network.

Because of Our Podcast - We Lost 100 lbs

1:11 Emily Prokop and John Jominzu of the Hate to Weight Podcast announced on a recent episode that together they have lost a combined weight of 100lbs. Both say the support form their private Facebook group who cheer them on when they do good, and lift them up when they have a bad week has been a determining force in their weight loss success. I love this clip for:

  • Showing the courage each week that reveals their success or failures
  • The honest tears of joy that can't be faked
  • The humble thanking of the group instead of taking credit for themselves.
