    9 NOV 2023 · Before we dive into today's topic, I want to say thank you for joining me this season. If you have ideas for topics we should cover in season two, let me know at or on social media. In this grand finale episode, we explore the unexpected upside of taking a break from your podcast. We discusses the benefits of going on hiatus and how it can reinvigorate your show and creativity long term. Taking an extended break allows for creative recharging, giving your mind space to relax and inspire new perspectives. It also provides time for production improvements without the pressure of live episodes, allowing for refinements and enhancements to your podcast. A hiatus can build listener anticipation and generate buzz upon your return, creating a season launch moment. It also provides hosts with much-needed work-life balance, allowing them to recharge personally and avoid burnout. Additionally, the break provides valuable audience data, revealing your true fans and helping you better engage and serve your community. Don't fear reasonable breaks from the episodic grind. See them as a secret creative weapon to start your next season strong. Use the downtime wisely to refine your craft and processes while also rejuvenating personally.

  • #15 - Why Podcasters Should Ignore Reviews

    19 OCT 2023 · In this episode, we explore why you should consider ignoring podcast reviews. While feedback is valuable, obsessing over ratings can be counterproductive. We discuss how reviews often provide limited perspectives due to the minimal volume of ratings and flawed rating systems. Negative feedback can carry disproportionate weight, affecting your podcast's perception. We encourage you to focus on your core audience, your loyal listeners who deeply appreciate your work. We also emphasize that growth metrics and tangible goals matter more than subjective star ratings. Setting benchmarks for downloads, email list growth, and revenue increases is crucial for your podcast's success. Chasing great reviews can backfire and hinder your creativity. Instead, stay true to yourself and your core community, creating content that naturally earns ratings. In summary, this episode highlights why reviews should not dictate your podcasting priorities or content. We've covered the limitations of reviews, the impact of negative feedback, and why core fans matter most. Focus on clear goals and growth metrics to measure your success. If you've enjoyed this perspective, we'd appreciate an honest review. Thanks for listening and remember to create amazing content without worrying about reviews!
