It’s never a good day when your podcast hosting company says they anticipate zero downloads on your next podcast episode. It sucks really. But that’s what happened to me at a time when I was considering shutting down my podcast anyway. It was the final piece of the puzzle that convinced me to shut it down. So I did. The already struggling Audacity Bootcamp Podcast is no more. I think having that podcast was a good idea but the timing was off. I may bring it back in a little different format in 2023. We’ll see.
But within hours of deciding to retire that podcast, I heard from David Hooper about a newly-published book of his entitled, 101 Podcast Episode Templates. This was great timing because all of us feel it from time-to-time. That dreaded funk that results from podcast burnout (or in my case, bad news from my podcast hosting service). So I bought the book and in this video I want to give you a peek inside it because what it really is, is 101 great podcast ideas to keep you going and to keep your podcast (or your videos too) fresh. As I explain in this video, my reasons for retiring the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast were a little different but just like every other podcaster, I’ve experienced burnout too and have found myself in need of fresh topics. David’s book might be just what you need for that extra nudge to keep going when you feel that funk start to set in.
