It’s Embarassing! (But Also a Good Opportunity.)

In 1991, I had a chance conversation at the gym that changed how I did workouts.

Long story short, the dude I talked to wasn't lifting weights at the gym, he was simply lifting himself through various bodyweight exercises.

That set me on a path of various forms of pullups, dips, handstands, pushups, lunges, etc.

I did that for almost 30 years.

Fast-forward to right now. It's been three years since gyms shut down due to the pandemic. And I fell off the wagon a bit.

A couple of weeks ago, I installed a new pullup bar at my house. I'm back to using it, but it's embarrassing how much momentum I've lost.

On the other hand, I've spent the last three years doing other types of exercise, so I've also gained momentum in new areas.

Have you done this with your podcast?

It's easy to get "off track" with a podcast. Because of this, I'm doing a free, "Podcast Jumpstart" program in June. More info is below. Or go here to get it now.

Even if you've lost momentum with your podcast, like me, there are probably a lot of things you've also gained at the same time. So this will be a good opportunity for you to dig into your podcast (whatever state it's in) and make it even better than before.

I hope you'll join me and hundreds of other podcasters who will be doing Podcast Jumpstart with me.

In this issue of Big Podcast Insider, I've got a great trick that will double the listeners of your next episode by getting your social media followers involved in its creation. There's also a list of ten simple things you can do to finally get control of your email and some advice on how to handle "bad" reviews of your podcast.
