Isn’t that just one more thing to add to our plate? Well, actually, we have a bit of a contrary opinion, having done it for a combined what, 24-25 years between the two of us prog podcasting in this new medium, and we have some pretty strong opinions of why can actually save you time.

First of all, if someone’s listening to this, and they’re thinking, You know what, I’m curious about starting a podcast, I listen to podcasts. I enjoy them. It seems like all my, my peers and colleagues and contemporaries are starting podcasts. You see it all the time. You know, celebrities are starting podcasts, but I got too many things on my plate. I’m way too busy. How can I possibly add that one more thing on top of the ball? What’s your response to that?

Jeremy Weisz 1:58

I say just don’t start it. Because it’s less. It’s less competition? No. Um, uh, yeah. If you’re not feeling it, don’t do it. But, um, you know, I know in our lives, John, we always look to deliver value first to people before asking for anything. And so I don’t know how people do it, like, how do you deliver value first in a relationship. And we have found there is no better way to do that, than to have a podcast. And so if you want to one of the biggest things is you, you want access to higher and higher caliber people and as you, whatever you categorize as higher caliber people. They’re busy. Okay, they have a lot of things pulling at them. Well, how do you deliver value to those people first? And there’s a number of ways, one of which is to profile them on your platform, the people in companies you admire? So? I don’t know, John, how do people really get access to higher caliber people? You know, giving with a podcast is a big one in our world.

John Corcoran 3:01

Yeah, sheer grit or connections, right. But you know, those two things. So how

Jeremy Weisz 3:06

do you get connections? Yeah, exactly. So that was a big one, you know, we always say, the amount of time it will take you to get access to higher and higher caliber people without this. It just takes longer, and it’s going to cost you more, it’s going to take more time.
