Podcasting became the tool I needed to draw out more from myself, and in doing so, facilitated a profession in podcasting as well as a personal mode of succession that my girls will be able to immerse themselves into — and get to know their mother in her own voice, in conversation.
A recently published piece in The New York Times entitled “Have We Hit Peak Podcast?” has been quite the topic of conversation, garnering some mixed reactions. The subtitle removes all doubt as to the editorial angle: “If past experience (cough, blogs) is any indication, a shakeout is nigh.” No matter how one fits into the podcasting ecosystem, we can all see that the sheer number of shows has become overwhelming. However, not all podcasters get into it for money, fame, or to become an “influencer.” Discounting the creative joy of podcasting is a mistake.
