I am constantly blown away by the thoughtfulness and generosity of the podcast community. Todays Zedcast was produced entirely by my Friends. I knew nothing about it until I woke up early this morning to get some work done before the kids got up and found this in my GMail. It is without a doubt one of the sweetest, most thoughtful things I have ever received for my birthday.
I have been heartsick over the lack of activity in the Zedcast feed. It is not for lack of inspiration or want of muse. It is purely a Time & Priority thing. I am writing notes and recording snippets constantly. But none has ever reached the point of show-ness. During the first year, I put off my (paid) work, my family, and my running group to produce the Zedcast. During the second year I tried to do it all and put off my health as well. This year I have spent more time with my family, gotten back to regular marathon training, and my business is flourishing. This has left little time for anything else.
I will be back at the show in some form after Dec 5, but I know better than to make any promises beyond this.
I am still subscribed to over 200 podcasts and listen all day long. And the friends represented here are always at the top of my listening list, though I don't tell them often enough.
Thank you for a wonderful birthday gift!
