  1. Great episode, really love all of the ideas other podcasters are using to celebrate milestones! My podcast, Weird Darkness, doesn’t celebrate number of episodes because I post almost daily. So I decided to celebrate the anniversary of the show… which is every October. Last year I dedicated the whole month to raising money for depression and suicide prevention, raising over $2,000. And then the last day of the month, Halloween, I broadcast the podcast live on YouTube outside and told ghost stories as trick-or-treaters stopped by. I loved interacting with the kids, letting them say hello to my audience in the camera, etc. The unpredictable aspect made it a great night and I received a LOT of feedback from fans telling me how much they enjoyed it and hope I’ll do it again this coming October/Halloween.
