Podcast Thanks, Support and the Future
Thanks to everyone that has listened to my Christmas Podcasts and sent some positive words my way. Also, a huge thanks to all my brilliant guests. At the time of blogging this, the show has had over 15,500 listens and rising. That’s far exceeded my wildest expectations. Thank you.
It’s been a huge pleasure to speak with such funny, smart and lovely people. If you’ve enjoyed hearing from my guests, please let them know by Tweeting some love their way.
It’s been a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. If I’m honest, I don’t think I’ve ever worked so hard on anything in my life. I’ve quickly learned that releasing 7 podcasts in 20 days, whilst maintaining a full-time job is…mental.
I’m currently weighing up the idea of another regular fortnightly show in the New Year. I’m brainstorming some ideas to try and make it funny, informative & engaging. Whether I do produce a new show largely depends on whether or not the audience support outweighs the server costs (£110/US$180 per year) plus production costs. I don’t want to charge for content, so I would have to rely on the generosity of voluntary contributions from the listeners to supplement the costs.
If everybody that enjoyed the show donated a dollar, a pound or a….Yuan (I don’t really know China), this would help supplement the costs involved and could even go towards new equipment to improve production and audio quality. If you’ve enjoyed the Podcast and would like to hear more, please consider making a contribution amount of your choice by becoming a patron.
If that’s something you can’t do right now, please take a minute to review/rate and subscribe to the show on Stitcher & iTunes. This will improve the ranking of the show, and enable it to reach a bigger audience. Because my show is listed in the category of “Religion & Spirituality” the majority of my competition are evangelical religious shows. Listening, rating and reviewing will help me knock a few of them of their perch. This thought makes me happy.
I hope you’ve laughed and learned something.
Have a great Christmas
