29- Considerations on Podfading

screncastartwork2048

Although we like to think positively and aspire that our podcast shows will go on forever and grow forever, we take a look at the reality of the environment in podcasting.

In this episode, we review some of the reasons for considering podfading your podcast show — all the way from burnout to a “fade-out, then fade-in” to begin another new podcast show, but with revitalized passion. Many of them deal with real-life situations and cases-in-point.

Some of the reasons given are:

-.Complications due to Health or age

– Too many podcast shows where you cannot do justice to them;

– Podcasting isn’t “fun” any more;

– Passion is fading;

– Just want podcasting to be no more than a “hobby”;

– Loss of your co-host or JV Partner;

– Decline of interest from your listeners or community, thus a decline of listeners;

– Cannot meat business objectives when podcasting is your business;

– Loss of money in podcasting (“don’t throw good money after bad”)

– Need to pivot to a new strategy, product, offering, technology or service for your business;

– You need a break, a rest and recharging of your “batteries”;
