As my mother says at the beginning of the podcast, "I didn't think it would last." But we made it to episode 100. Woo hoo! It took us 8 years, but here we are. On today's podcast, entitled "Looking Back. Looking Forward," we chat about earlier episodes, the future of podcasts, paying for content, and lots more. I hope you'll give it a listen!
If you do not see the podcast player above, please click on this link. On the off chance that you've never listened to a podcast or don't get why anybody would want to, here are some facts: (1) Podcasts are convenient. It's a recording that is available to you whenever and wherever you'd like to listen. You can pause, stop, start, fast forward, and rewind. Stream it through Apple Music or any podcast service. (2) Podcasts are great for listening to while making art. They provide intellectual stimulation and create a bit of company (like hanging out with friends) without the visual distraction of the TV. (3) Podcasts can inspire and educate you. I often find myself jotting down notes when I listen to a podcast. There's so much I want to remember.
