A Podcast’s Power To Change People… And The Podcaster

Podcasting may look hot, but it’s still one of the slowest growing mediums ever. As podcasters, we’re partly to blame. Here’s how we can fix that without changing how we make our own shows.

With Podcasting, Change Flows Both Ways

I’m not sure most of us podcasters-and until recently I was in this camp-realize that we too experience permanent change as we produce our episodes. Especially if we’re highly niche, presenting similar ideas and thoughts to our audience on a regular basis. As we engage in the act of podcasting, some of the change we’re putting out into the world flows back on us.

Put Down The Drum Circle And Back Away Slowly

As a rule, I’m not a consumer of self-help content. I don’t go in for the books and videos that talk about transformative change at your fingertips if you’ll only fork over $19.99. My skeptical nature often skews cynical, and I’ve seen too many earnest people peddling easy answers to an all-too-eager audience for my taste. So please don’t ascribe deeper meanings like “be the change you want to be in your own life” to my words. I’ve no interest in being saddled with the “guru” mantle.
