54: Hey! Let's Start ANOTHER Podcast! - THINK FIRST

Dave has been track EXCATLY how long it takes to make a podcast. This includes:

Researching storiesOrganzing show notes for recordingRecorind the PodcastEditing mp3 tagsUploading the mp3Creating the Show notes

It turns out that based on my last 7 podcasts, you spend 4 minutes for every 1 minute of podcast. For example this podcast is about 10 minutes in length. As I type these show notes I'm at the 34 minute mark.


Well, sometimes we get caught up in how fun podcasting is and we want to start another one before realizing that if we do a 15 minute podcast 4 times a week, that 4 HOURS of show production required. In some cases, you end up skimping on preparing good quality content, and then ALL your shows suffer.

Just Dave's way of saying, "Maybe you should think about it before starting another podcast."
