Seven years ago, I recorded my first live podcast.
The process was remarkably simple, even then: my co-hosts and I called into BlogTalkRadio on our phones and we provided postgame commentary for a basketball game that had just ended.
I’m pretty sure the three of us outnumbered listeners for that first show. So the stakes were extremely low. It was basically like we were just talking on the phone amongst ourselves, as we might have done even if we weren’t recording.
Except that it wasn’t like that at all.
Because some people were listening. And a million people could have been listening, had they wanted to.
I mean, we were live … on the air!
Which gave that first episode of our nascent postgame show an energy unlike any other I had ever felt before.
I was hooked.
