    Are you podcasting to an empty room?
    For most podcasters, it not empty, but we always wish it was more. A common phrase you hear from podcasters is, “I am creating great content, but I am not reaching enough people fast enough.”
    It is not a new problem, and it will not be solved overnight, but as we discuss in today’s episode, it has already been solved.
