What Is A Podcast? (00:01:34)
I enjoy introducing the world of podcasts to someone who has never heard of podcasting before. Not for the purpose convincing them to start a podcast, but actually start listening to podcasts. I am a firm believer that podcasts have a power to change people's lives for the better like no other platform out there.
In this episode, I share an example of the language I use when describing what a podcast is to someone for the very first time. It just so happens that I was able to record such a conversation with someone while I happened to be out in the field recording an episode of my Pursuing A Balanced Life podcast. I also issue a challenge to all podcasters to make it a goal to introduce at least one person, each week, to the world of podcasting. This would be a true “podcast movement.”
Other Topics Covered In This Episode:

– A possible way to save money on your mobile data plan (00:45:32)

Upcoming Event Schedule
One of my favorite things about traveling to, and speaking at conferences, is meeting members of my community. I always make it a point to host a community meetup wherever I travel.
Below is a list of events that you might be interested in. If you can make it to any of these events, I'd love to have the opportunity to meet you. If you are not able to attend the event, but are in that area, I'd still love for you to come to the personal community meetup that I will host in that town.
