The Brassy Broadcast podcast is an exploration of ways we create, engage, and communicate. 

Apr 26, 2020

Brené Brown’s Unlocking Us podcast episode about FFTs is now required listening for my podcasting clients because she shares her challenges around starting a new podcast and how she has worked through them.

This is my first time back in a while. My focus for the past year has been on my other podcast, Beauty and the Gi, a podcast about the intersection of life and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu on and off the mat.

It feels good to be back. Now, does this mean that I'm going to be back on a regular production schedule? Probably not.

I'm using The Brassy Broadcast as a resource where I can direct clients and folks with questions about podcasting. It's more about adding to the resource library as needed, rather than feeling like I have to put out a new show every week.

This episode is actually serving a couple of different purposes for me. The first is that I wanted to record and edit a full episode using Descript. It's a cool tool for business owners, authors, and industry experts that want to start a podcast. It's a great tool to get you started.

The second purpose of this episode is to share with you why I’m making listening to the FFT episode of Brené Brown’s Unlocking Us podcast required listening for my new podcasting clients.

Here are some highlights with time stamps. Did you know that if you include the time stamp in your show notes, some apps will take you right to that spot in the episode? Not all apps do this. I know that it works in Overcast, Pocketcasts, and Castbox
