The host, Pat Flynn, has been podcasting for nearly a decade, has published somewhere close to 2,000 episodes of his shows, and the SPI podcast has had more than 60 million downloads all time!

And the two of them spoke about the future of SPI, and how they were focused on growing the business through partnerships and acquisitions. Well, as you may or may not know, back in December 2020, SPI acquired one of my businesses – my accelerator and private community, Unreal Collective. And as a result, I now lead Community Experience for SPI. They’ve been wildly supportive and encouraging of my other projects, including my writing, this podcast, and Freelancing School. In fact, this episode with Pat on the SPI podcast is talking specifically about freelancing, and how I’m serving freelancers THROUGH Freelancing School.

They’d have new episodes of Boy Meets World, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place… And then, inevitably towards the end of the season, they’d run a clip show.
