Podfade Happened To Me Too


You may have noticed that it's been awhile since I've come out with a new episode of this podcast.  And for that, I apologize.  I've often talked about "PodFade" in this show - it's when after a certain number of episodes, a podcast falls down your priority list.   Well, it happened to me.  Today, I'm going to tell you how it happened, and what I'm doing about it.

My wife and I are doing a lot of traveling this year - call it pent up wanderlust from COVID, scratching an itch, whatever.  Well, as a small business owner, you're never really fully "on vacation."   So I would work a lot of long nights and weekends prior to and just after a trip.   I thought I had a plan for this podcast - I had created some bonus content and planned on releasing that weekly.  Well, that worked in April.  But as we turned the calendar to May, June, and soon July, the work kept piling up, and the further away I got from creating new content, the less of a priority it became.   Now don't get me wrong, I have some amazing podcast clients, and the influx of new business is certainly a good thing - it just wasn't for this podcast.

So I've decided to pause The JAG Show for the summer, and perhaps re-tool it.   Summertime often sees a dip in podcast listening, as people's habits change for trips, being out of routine with school and work, and more.  So if you do need a break, this is the time to take one.   Here's what I would like to know from you, though.   What about this show have you liked and disliked?  Do you prefer more of the podcast industry news, practical tips for your podcast, or a combination?  I'd really like your feedback as I think about what Season 4 of the JAG Show will look like.  Let me know on social at JAG in Detroit, or drop me an email - jag@jagindetroit.com.

One thing I HIGHLY recommend for you if you're taking a break - learn a lesson from me.  Tell your listeners if you're taking some time off.   It wasn't until a colleague asked me the other day, "Hey, what's up with your podcast?" that I realized I owed you an explanation.  By the way, thanks for that, Stacey.

So my telling you that this show will be back in the fall, I'm committing to it.  And this will help hold me accountable.  There may be some bonus content between now and then, but I will be back in the fall.  Just let me know what you want to hear in the show.

So until then, stay healthy and stay safe. Lata!
