    Low-Effort Content Creation

    I’m creatively burned out and stretched too thin. I’m also frustrated by people making low-effort content. Note: I’m aware of the poor audio quality in this podcast. I’ll do better next time.

    Podcasting in a Car

    I’m slowly rebranding this podcast. You’ll hear the new tagline in this one: A personal audio journal of faith and folly. I’m still massaging the delivery. This podcast was recorded in my car.

    Sometimes Life Gets in the Way of Podcasting

    Sometimes Life Gets in the Way of Podcasting

    Sometimes life gets in the way of podcasting and that’s OK. Don’t beat yourself up over it.







    My friend, Scott Roche helped me understand this after sharing a post on TikTok. I highly recommend that you follow him if you do anything creative.







    Sometimes the things that prevent you from podcasting are in your control and other times they’re out of your control. Whatever, the reason, it’s OK.
