Now that SMP Mike has released Episode 95 into the wild, The Delivery is five weeks from its 100th episode and a bit under two months from its second birthday.
I mention that because being a successful broadcaster has been a dream of mine since I was young. Now, you might not think that a weekly podcast that’s not heard by as many people a month as attend one National Hockey League game is the definition of success, but it is. See, 95 weeks ago this podcast didn’t exist and now it’s a regular fixture of many peoples’ lives — whether they listen to it here, download it from iTunes, or join the live show on Tuesday nights. There are plenty of podcasts that have fallen by the wayside since I started The Delivery, and we’ll see a few more pull into the garage before I’m done here, too.
So, yeah, this is success. SMP Mike and I built a solid, entertaining, growing podcast from essentially nothing. We promote it with little else but Twitter, our own websites, and the incredible word-of-mouth power of all of you who listen and love the show and look where it is now.
But — there’s always a “but”, isn’t there? –it’s far from the only success SMP Mike and I will see here. The Delivery will get bigger. There will be more. The second half of the show deals a bit with the dreams I have for the show and for my involvement in new media overall and how we all ought to spend a little part of every day working on fulfilling our dreams. It’s pure inspirational candy and don’t we all need a piece of that once in a while?
I spent the first half of the show talking about media bias and how the right has been sorely let down by Tucker Carlson and The Daily Caller. I think the two halves of this show go very well together. You’ll have to listen to find out how, though.The Delivery - Episode 95
