338 Evergreen Content & Thoughts Behind A New Opening Script
Summary: Creating Evergreen Content (00:38:45) In this episode, I talk about the value in intentionally creating evergreen content.

However, the reality is that, until now, I had never made a change to the opening script that reflects the true focus of Podcast Answer Man. In this episode, I tried out my new script and shared the thoughts that went into the wording that I chose.
