Setting Expectations...


Howdy, folks!  Time for another blog entry!  It's been a good 6 week or so and I feel like it's time to give you guys some reading material!  You know, since you all have spent so much time listening, it was time to try another medium!  It's been a great batch of shows lately here on The Podcast Digest!  I've had some amazing guests!  And I hope you guys have been enjoying listening as much as I've been enjoying putting together these great shows!

And lately, it seems like I'm on a rampage for guest spots!  I know, I know, you're probably sick of me by now!  But check out my Guest Appearance pages (link to the right) and please subscribe and rate these very kind hosts who've allowed me to pollute their episodes with my dulcet tones!  Ha!  And there's actually two more coming soon, as well!

On one of those yet to be released guest spots coming out soon, I got into a very good conversation about TPD, and I was able to put into words something that I hadn't really done so and I wanted to mention it here on the site.  The conversation was about the goals of TPD for the future, and while I ask this question of my guests all the time, I hadn't really considered it too much, personally.  But during my answer, I mentioned what I feel are the 3 main aspects of TPD that I want to continue and I hope that each of you have come here for and hopefully enjoy.  They are:

1. Interviews and behind the scenes chats with some of the biggest names in podcasting.
2. Introducing my listeners to newer shows that you may not have yet heard of, but will love!
3. Recommendation shows where I tell you what I'm listening to and have now subscribed to!

So far, in my 37 episodes, almost every one of them could fit into one of those 3 show types.  My hope is that this "mix" will make for an interesting show that you will love, rate, review and share with your friends!  So... let me know!  Does this work for you? Do you want to see more or less of any one type?  Email, comment here or find me on Twitter (@poddigest) and speak your mind!
