I'm not a great speaker.

I really don't like listening to myself talk.

But I might have some interesting things to say.

I know it seems like everyone has their own podcast these days. However, maybe there's room for one more?

I've listened to several podcasts that talk about startups. They often feature an interview with a prominent guest. Someone that has done something that sounds at least semi-difficult. They're often almost an hour long but around 15 minutes in I'm looking for a different podcast to listen to.

So how would I do it differently? Well, people seem to like our transparency into our journey building Canny. I'd want our episodes to be short and sweet, focused, and to the point. I want to teach people things that we're learning.

We are starting a company, we are nomads, and we're a couple. There's got to be people interested in hearing about that.

Maybe each episode can answer a question from our (small) audience. Maybe I can treat it like a verbal diary that I share with the world. So many maybes. Maybe I just need to record something and put it out there

Ultimately, if I give it a good try and nobody listens, I can just stop. No big deal. What's the harm in trying? Right?

If you're reading this, what podcasts do you like?

    @hum I hope you have it now? I'd love to listen short podcasts. I currently catch up on IH podcast and The Knowledge Project. But they are too long.

      @seunoyebode I didn't end up doing it yet, too much has happened in the last couple months! Thanks for the interest though, I'll let you know if we do end up doing it.

    @hum do it. Thats the only way you will know if it will gain traction. Podcasts I like tend to span across the board, it used to be just tech and start up but I find that the crime ones are very interesting too.

      @alvinmilton Nice. I really like listening to storytelling podcasts. Although most things I do these days are, at least somewhat, for business purposes.

    @hum Go for it! :D I don't listen to podcasts though. I prefer to read the transcripts and/or listen to audio books :)

      @basilesamel Good to know! It shouldn't be hard to transcribe each episode.
