I’ve been hinting at it on social media; I’ve made no secret about it here on my site… and it’s here! My return to podcasting after nearly two years, Sonitotum. In this first episode, I talk about… * …why I stopped doing my last show * …why I started this one * …what you can expect from the show * …and from the next episode. I want you to listen, but here are some hints: * Life got really, really crazy * I’ve hit “reset” on my creative endeavors and I’m starting over… and taking you with me so we both hopefully learn a thing or two * Like it says on the branding: Make stuff. Find success. Stay sane. * I mean it when I say I’m starting at square one. You’ll just have to listen to discover what that means. Podcasting has been at the root of any measure of success I’ve had as an independent creator, dating back to October of 2004. I’m excited to be back. The medium is so very different than what it was thirteen and a half years ago, or even twenty months ago. But when I get behind the mic and start talking to you, it feels just a little bit like coming home. Let’s hang out! And once you listen, be sure to tell me what you think!
