I have been wanting to start a podcast for a long time. I always seem to get stuck on a project before I get it off the ground. The details seem to overwhelm me before I can get started. I don’t know why, I am by no means a perfectionist. I am totally great with mediocre, good enough, and satisfactory.
I get stuck wanting to have my ducks in a row. I like to know the overarching concepts. I need to understand all of the in’s and out’s before I undertake something. These are the lies I tell myself. The truth is that I am afraid to start. What if it sucks? What if nobody listens? What if I build it and they don’t come?
I will never have a podcast if I don’t get started. Sometimes the best way to get started is to just start. So, I am releasing my first official podcast. It is recorded straight into my phone, no edits or effects. It isn’t earth shaking or ground breaking but it is a start. Now I have to keep going and continue improving. I want the next one to be better than this one. I know I am not changing the world, yet. But hopefully, if I get incrementally better, it will be good enough to make a difference.
You can listen to Brother Jack’s Soapbox right here. For the first couple episodes, we will focus on getting started.
