Why You Should Not Start A Podcast

just-say-noThis week’s podcast episode is unique in several ways. First, I made the intentional decision to not use any audio clips within the podcast from beginning to end. I did this as a means of motivation for brand new podcasters who may be struggling to find the right music or audio branding for their podcast. My thought is that if you have content that is worth creating, you should not let something as little as not having any music keep you from sharing that content with the world.

Also, I’ve never produced an episode of Podcast Answer Man that has gone this far over an hour in length. This episode is actually 1 hour and 52 minutes. However, I can’t see a way that I would have been able to share what was on my mind without spending this amount of time on the topic.

In his blog post, Spencer shared his “very real and raw thoughts” about his own podcast and why he thinks many people shouldn’t start a podcast.

A majority of this extremely lengthy episode is my full reaction to what Spencer shared in that blog post.
