The International Podcast Association was launched at Podcast Movement 2019. Today I talk with two members of the executive board Liz Covart of Ben Franklin's World and Glenn Hebert from the Horse Radio Network.

Because of Our Podcast – We Lost 100 lbs

Emily Prokop and John Jominzu of the Hate to Weight Podcast announced on a recent episode that together they have lost a combined weight of 100lbs. Both say the support form their private Facebook group who cheer them on when they do good, and lift them up when they have a bad week has been a determining force in their weight loss success. I love this clip for:

  • Showing the courage each week that reveals their success or failures
  • The honest tears of joy that can't be faked
  • The humble thanking of the group instead of taking credit for themselves.

  • What is it?
  • Why do we need it?
  • Who is shaping it?
  • What do they need from you?
  • What do you need from them?
  • How long will board members be active?
  • How much does it cost?
  • What is their first order of business?
  • Why they chose to only use board members with no corporate ties at this point.

  1. The links to IPA and the survey appear to be incorrect. Can you review and update? Thanks!

  2. Caroline, I’ve updated the post. Sorry for the confusion.

  3. Ryan Shaughnessy says:

    Did they change domains? The utl doesn’t resolve

  4. Ryan,
    The IPA has “gone out of business”

  5. Russ Binder says:

    Can you share why? It seemed like a reasonable idea, from listening to your episode.

  6. The reason this this is a HUGE task, and its going to take TIME and MONEY, and really at least one full-time person. I also don’t think people quite understood the purpose of the association.
