I was about to create a page here at my blog linking to all of the Low Barrier Podcast episodes that my buddy and I produced weekly (mostly) between March and June of 2022.
But said co-host, Mister Jim Rogers, called my attention to the fact that, incredibly, Spotify still hosts them directly. I didn't think the audio streaming sites did that.
But cool, they can spring for the bandwidth in making them available, and I can call everyone's attention to that collection easily in just one blog post like this.
Production of the podcast began to sputter when the time commitment to producing each episode began to swallow up an entire day, and even more. First we began to miss a week here and there, and then finally, I was set to move and pretty much wound up using that turbulent event as an excuse to pause, then eventually backburn, then abandon, the project.
Aside from doing something consistently constructive - for awhile - the endeavor was very positive for me in that it gave me real respect for podcasters, YouTubers, and all forms of digital creators and influencers who manage to stay focused and non-distracted, adhering to a schedule around their jobs and families, to maintain grit and make names for themselves. It's not easy to do!
If I'm (we?) are able to ever try it again and actually succeed, it will be grounded in the experience and lessons learned from before.
It was absolutely worth it!
