And I didn’t even understand it.

It’s just the interview, which was my favorite part of journalism and the part I think I excelled at the best.” (22:03)  “I’m more methodical now about how I make my decisions. I say, ‘No’ more. I say ‘Yes’ to things that matter and, ‘No’ to everything else.” (24:39)  “Interviewing was easy; getting guests was no problem. I think just the technical part of launching and all the little things you have to do I was a little blown away by. And then also letting go. You were really good at coaching me to just put it out there even if it isn’t perfect.” (25:28)  “We’ve lost our collective sense of humor as a country.

The traditional textbook definition is someone who has learned and is interested in many different areas. And that means a deep level of knowledge.” (11:49)“When I find people to interview, the thing I look for is if they’re multidisciplinary. So, if they have a main specialty and they’re a specialist – even a hyper specialist – they’re bound to have some sort of hobby or maybe they’re a podcaster like us.” (18:09)“One of my main endeavors right now is trying to get this idea of a multidisciplinary spectrum out there.” (22:22)“I would honestly say I have often gotten a lot of existential crises. And it’s hard to deal with those, especially when they hit you hard.” (33:59)“First and foremost, I love learning. And since I couldn’t find a college that I wanted to go to, I pursued my own education and self-development.” (38:03)“Being a polymath individually is gonna have a lot of different topics. Having a group of polymaths means there’s an exponential amount of topics.” (47:55)“Hustling too hard is ok as long as you know how to rest and take care of yourself.” (52:06)THANK YOU SPONSORS!FocusriteFullCastLINKS MENTIONED*FullCast Website *Podcast Junkies Junkies Facebook GroupPodfest Expo Virtual SummitThe Polymath PodcastDustin’s WebsiteDustin’s LinkedInDustin’s FacebookDustin’s TwitterDustin’s Polymath CommunityNeomArthur Isaac’s YouTube ChannelLEMMiNO YouTube ChannelKardashev Scale🎧Podcast Production & Marketing by FullCast

And people started finding me from it. I was shocked that they were finding this podcast feed that was just about productivity and then reaching out and connecting with me. I thought to myself, this the direction I should go now.” (12:31)  “I very much want to make sure that, when I create a piece of content, you do the hard work once and then you repurpose it and make it work hard for you.” (14:27)  “Facilitating introductions is a huge part of what I have found to be great networking.” (20:06)  “There is a consequence for working eighty hours a week, grinding it out, living in your car, never seeing your family, never working out, only eating junk food and never really taking care of your mental, physical or emotional health.” (27:11)  “Self-care is about managing my nervous system. I’ve got to manage my nervous system because if I don’t my brain cannot function.” (31:38)  “Right now, with all that’s going on with the world, we need to take the pressure off. And if you can afford to hire some help, it’s totally worth it.” (41:55)  “The research shows COVID-19 disproportionately has affected women – working moms in particular.” (43:44)  “I figure if Guy Raz can republish episodes of How I Built This then I can too.” (1:00:17)THANK YOU SPONSORS!Focusrite  FullCastLINKS MENTIONED*FullCast Website *Podcast Junkies Junkies Facebook GroupPodfest Expo Virtual SummitLunch ClubVoxerClubhouseShe Podcasts LiveRacheal’s Plan Your Best Year Ever ChallengeThe CEO CollectiveRacheal’s PodcastFired Up & Focused WebsiteRacheal’s WebsiteRacheal’s Books: Your Business Sweet SpotFired Up & FocusedRacheal’s LinkedInRacheal’s InstagramRacheal’s TwitterRacheal’s FacebookRacheal’s Pinterest🎧Podcast Production & Marketing by FullCast

I started Diabetes Connections in the summer of 2015 because – like a lot of people who listen to podcasts – I realized that the one I wanted didn’t exist and I had to create it myself.” (13:28)  “When you’re in radio and television, crazy funny things happen, and you just go with it.” (20:10)  “One of the philosophies I brought over from radio was put your listeners first. Just put your listeners first in any decision you’re trying to make and the decisions will be extremely easy. And that helps me along the way.” (26:36)  “I had about 125 listeners per episode after four weeks. But I knew that those were very valuable listeners because they’re older, they have a lot of money and they want to spend it.” (38:28)  “I would like to do a talk or be on a panel about selling your show without selling your soul. I think above board ethics help you, help your show and help your listeners.” (45:11)  “One place that I’ve grown is in really letting my interviewees breath. I’m less afraid of silence than I was in the beginning.” (49:51)  “It’s one of the wonderful things about podcasting in that you really can be less than perfect if you’re trying and you’re genuine and you’re open.” (54:38) THANK YOU SPONSORS!Focusrite  FullCastLINKS MENTIONED*FullCast Website *Podcast Junkies Junkies Facebook GroupPodfest Expo Virtual SummitStacey’s PodcastDiabetes Connections WebsiteStacey’s Books: The World’s Worst Diabetes MomI Can’t Cook, But I Know Someone Who CanStacey’s InstagramDiabetes Connections TwitterDiabetes Connections FacebookDiabetes Connections YouTube ChannelChris Snider’s Mark All That Apply PodcastShe Podcasts Live WebsiteDexcom Website🎧Podcast Production & Marketing by FullCast

You either have that in you or you do not.” (25:03)“I have fans in South Korea and all over Africa. I have fans from Story Worthy so this is exciting in a way. To take something away from the pandemic is our ability to stay in touch and how small the world really is.” (30:09)“People that have ingenuity are able to rise up.” (32:30)“I would say the most important thing is to focus. You should already be focused when you’re podcasting anyway. And since they see you, clear up your background. Be normal, be professional. Understand that it’s important that they’re giving you their time.” (34:36)“I know I’m onto something good when I truly can’t sleep because I’m so excited.” (51:36) THANK YOU SPONSORS!Focusrite  FullCastLINKS MENTIONED*FullCast Website *Podcast Junkies Junkies Facebook GroupPodfest Expo Virtual SummitChristine’s PodcastStory Worthy Hour of PowerLink to the Story Smash ShowChristine’s EmailChristine’s WebsiteChristine’s InstagramChristine’s TwitterChristine’s FacebookChristine’s YouTube ChannelLink to the movie Young AdultLink to Thousand True FansLink to I’ll Be Gone In The Dark BookLink to Screwed-Up Stories PodcastLink to StreamYardLink to Island Idylls Podcast🎧Podcast Production & Marketing by FullCast

I’m a huge reader and, for me, something is real when I can read it.” (13:39)“When I was listening back and editing my own podcast, I realized that there’s something that happens to our voices when we’re talking to each other. There’s an energy that comes through, there’s a connection.” (17:24)“I’m ninety-nine percent curiosity and one percent podcaster. I’m curious about my guests which is why they’re there. I want to know things.” (27:28)“I think it’s way easier to interview someone one-on-one than it is to stand up in a conference.” (46:28)“I just really love exploring.

I love people who talk about strategy and traits and characteristics – people like Dan Sullivan and Alex Charfen. But I also like the people who talk about what works online – like the Russell Brunsons of the world.” (11:39)“I think that, if nothing else, entrepreneurship is the best personal development crash course you can possibly take.” (14:55)“My theory in life is that if you can’t look back five years ago and ask, ‘What was I doing’ then you’re not living.” (17:27)“Podcasts have probably taught me more than my education or any mentor. I am obsessed with podcasts.” (25:13)“I think that value is not just in the information or the tactical stuff.

Or, if you have a business, use the podcast as part of your marketing.” (11:06)“Starting in 2021, I’m shifting gears slightly to where I’m gonna be interviewing people who stated their business with less than one thousand dollars and built it to a million dollars without any venture capital.” (18:24)“Right now, I’m focusing on finding people to interview for the podcast that will fit what I’m doing.” (23:06)“I’d love to go to Aruba because they have a flamingo and an iguana beach.

You can build a business on the Internet by using your own skills. And, this pandemic has made a lot of people think that way and start wondering, ‘How can I take advantage of it?’” (08:19)“And that’s fun. It’s fun to be with people who are constantly saying, ‘Well, what if tried this?’ We’ll give anything a shot once and I think that, in this space, it’s a really fun place to be in for sure.” (10:58)“One of the things that we always preach is, ‘You have to maximize your content. You need to be smart about how you use your content because there’s only one of you – there’s only twenty-four hours in the day – so you can’t be constantly creating.” (14:16)“I think if you’re a content creator of any type, if you’re a podcaster, you should always listen to what your audience wants. They are the commodity. They’re the ones who are gonna help you be better.” (22:08)“If you build that community, and you listen to them and you give them content they want, they will follow you through all different iterations of your career.” (24:35)“People are busy. People are trying to cut back on their social media. Everyone’s on a different time schedule. If you’re only sharing something one time – whether it’s your newest podcast episode or a sale that you’re having – you’re really doing yourself a disservice.” (32:30)“My advice to everyone is use ten to twenty minutes to go into social media and actually engage with your audience.” (37:08)“I just think audio as a medium is becoming more mainstream. And when that happens, the more fun things people start doing and experimenting with. And, I’m excited to see how that grows in this industry.” (47:47)THANK YOU SPONSORS!Focusrite  FullCastLINKS MENTIONED*FullCast Website *Podcast Junkies Junkies Facebook GroupMeetEdgar WebsiteMeetEdgar TwitterMeetEdgar FacebookMeetEdgar InstagramMeetEdgar PinterestMeetEdgar LinkedInMaura’s LinkedInMaura’s TwitterSocial Post Podcast Link to Paperbell  🎧Podcast Production & Marketing by FullCast

I was just interested in it as a story.” (09:12)“Having a dad who’s a reporter can be a little hard sometimes. I feel like, as a kid, he was always finding the storyline, running through things that I thought were large problems that he thought he could really simply. And sometimes you don’t really want your problems to be simplified.” (14:20)“I would call myself a fairly early podcast junkie. I’ve been excited to see how podcasts have expanded because in the early days they related a lot to the same kind of topics that were for that early adopter audience.” (18:49)“At a startup you can dream up ideas, make them come true – engineering willing – and have two people use them. And at Google, you can dream up ideas, make endless decks about what they could be and potentially be able to do them on a much bigger scale.” (28:20)“Local [news] is something that we value very highly and are working to understand how we can help those local outlets, how we can recognize the new and emerging local outlets and how we can just connect our users to them.” (35:58)“That is my pitch is that your podcast doesn’t need to be two hours long, news or not.” (46:55)“Here’s my hill to die on. Everyone is a news reader. Everyone’s interested in the news. I know that the news can be overwhelming and that you want to turn it off sometimes and look inward.

I had an ache – a literal, physical ache in my body – of wanting to dive in more and be involved in this community.” (10:34)“I don’t know how I found it, but I did find it. I think it’s just one of those things where you don’t really know you have a voice until you’re already there.” (17:04)“I love to talk to anyone who’s making a living in podcasting. Ya know what I mean? It can be hard out there, as they say.” (33:49)“There’s also that insecurity of, ‘Will people subscribe to another newsletter or will people be interested in whatever work I produce next?’ I still don’t know the answer to that question, but I’d feel pretty lame if I didn’t at least try.” (43:47)“This is what podcasts do. They let you be a fly on the wall on some conversation that maybe you could never have and learn something.” (53:34)“I keep thinking that I am alive exactly when I want to be alive. This is an incredible time. Lots of it is tumultuous and sorrowful and painful, but it is fascinating and I’m glad to be here. I’m glad to be part of the generation that is experiencing this because hopefully good will come.” (56:56)THANK YOU SPONSORS!Focusrite  FullCastLINKS MENTIONED*FullCast Website *Podcast Junkies Junkies Facebook GroupSkye’s LinkedInSkye’s TwitterSkye’s Website Skye’s Podcasts: Inside PodcastingHeavyweight PodcastPodcast Business JournalFuture Thinkers PodcastThe Bulwark PodcastLink to the book AbundanceLink to Podcast Newsletters:Hot PodBello CollectivePodcast The Newsletter🎧Podcast Production & Marketing by FullCast
