Podcast fiction is not a career, it’s something you do for the love of it. Sure, it’s a good way to build a name, and build people interested in your stuff, make a ‘platform’… but only if you love it. Or it’ll fail. And hurt.
I am a writer. I’m also a communicator and a net culture guy, so podcasting is a no-brainer for me, right? Well, scratch that, it actually was-and is-a bit of thought, and a heckuva lot of work.
Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but when Phil Rossi recently admitted in his blog that after losing his job, he’s thinking about turning off the podcasting mic, it resonated. Made me sad. Rung my bell.
