The show is filled with “Because of My Podcast” stories. We also have a great example of a good question, and a reminder that Apple is going on Holiday soon (very important if you wanted a podcast ready to go in January 20201).

Because of My Podcast, I Got a Book Published, that Inspired a Podcast

I was contacted by a publisher to write the book Profit from Your Podcast: Turn Your Listeners Into Livelihood and it took a lot of work, but it's getting very good reviews. This lead David Hooper (author of the book Big Podcast, and host of Red Podcast and Big Podcast) along with Jeff Sanders of the 5 AM Miracle podcast (author of the book with the same name) got together to create a series called Podcast Profits which promotes my book.

The podcast is called Podcast Profits: Make Money (and more) With Your Podcast

Dave called me to let me know what he was planning, and to make sure it was OK to have “Because of My Podcast” stories. As they were talking about me, I was fine with that. I was really surprised that they didn't mention/plug their podcasts or their company Voxphonix until the last episode (and it was very minimal).

Now That's a Good Question

This is a new segment I am adding today. While I hear people say “That's a good question” when IT'S JUST NOT. So now, when I hear an actual good question, I thought I would spotlight it.

This example is from an interview by Lars Ulrich (the drummer for Metallica) who is interviewing Noel Gallagher (of Oasis) and Lars asks him how he feels about doing some of the older songs that were mammoth hits in the 90's when he has his own solo songs now. Noel starts to answer the question on how it makes his audience feel, Lars interrupts and asks, “But what do they mean to YOU.”

Lars then does something brilliant and Noel takes a deep breath. He shuts up and lets him think. The longer he lets him think – the better the answer. Eventually, Noel explains how those songs mean the world to him. Noel wasn't really answering the question, and Lars pointed him in the right direction. Catch the who interview on YouTube

Thanks to Wayne Henderson of for his awesome tones.

What Is Your Favorite Podcast and Why?

Every year the last episode is you answering the question, “What is your favorite podcast and why.” Now I want to know about your show as well, so if I answered the question it would sound like this:
