PE043: Shiny Things: Don’t get distracted by Luminary, Spotify, Google Podcasts and more


“If you’re in it for fame and fortune and money, you’re in the wrong place. There are way easier ways to do that.”

Your Podcast Boss

No blinky lights, flashing signs, and pockets full of glittery fairy dust needed.

There are some big moves being made by big players in the podcast industry at large. HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF $$$$$, in fact.

My advice to you?

Do what you do best. Focus on listeners. Focus on community. Focus on delivering outstanding content.

You know that thing when you’re in the ocean and there are massive waves out in the distance and by the time they reach where you are standing near the shore, they are gentle little salty swells around your ankles?

Yeah, this is that.

Podcast Envy VIP CIRCLE is here!

I’ve been teasing it FOREVER. Now there is a way for us to connect 1×1 AND for you to become part of an intimate community of podcasting colleagues who all want to make an impact, shift culture and all the while, reap the deep rewards of podcasting (no, I’m not necessarily talking sponsors…) for ourselves.

This is a community we will create TOGETHER. And because of this, the first 5 members to join by June 25, 2019, will receive the Founding Member rate of $29/month.

I will NEVER offer this rate again and it will be yours for as long as you are current.

To request to become a Founding Member, pop over here to apply.

I’ve got 20 questions for you and if I think the membership is right for you, I’ll send an invitation to join.

Yes, but, Andrea, what EXACTLY will we be doing?

I don’t know!

Okay… well I do have a pretty good idea but the truth is I don’t want to create something you don’t need just because I think it’s a good idea.

I also want us to be conscientious and intentional with our digital media, our attention, and our time together. And I have some ideas I think are pretty great! Curious?
