1600 Podcast Episodes Struggling for Purpose

    • Personal Journals

I’ve been podcasting in one form or another since 2005. When I started podcasting I would sit in my car with either my laptop or a PDA and record my podcast. I had no idea what I was doing or how this new medium would change my life.







Since 2005 I’ve published at least 1,599 episodes. This is the 1600th episode I’ve published (I think). This is a good-faith estimate. There may be more but I’m terrible at keeping track of this kind of stuff.Here’s a (rough) breakdown of the number of podcast episodes I released each year. Numbers in parentheses are YTD totals.2005: 22006: 50 (52)2007: 90 (142)2008: 108 (250)2009: 50 (300)2010: 454 (756)2011: 56 (810)2012: 40 (850)2013: 67 (917)2014: 49 (966)2015: 66 (1032)2016: 50 (1082)2017: 63 (1145)2018: 104 (1248)2019: 27 (1275)2020: 168 (1443)2021: 75 (1518)2022: 50 (1568)2023: 21 (1589)2024: 10 (1599)







This breaks down to approximately 84 episodes per year. It doesn’t include podcasts where I was a guest or on a panel. No, the number in 2010 is not a typo. I recorded or produced 365 episodes for a daily podcast that year on top of my regular podcasts.







Let’s dig into the numbers!
