Episode 048. "We must create content that matters so much to the people who are listening that they will pay for what they can get for free."Laura Walker, former CEO WNYC Studios @ Podcast Movement
The morning after Podcast Movement 2019 in Orlando, Florida, I had an idea for what I hope will be an ongoing wonderful series of behind-the-scenes podcasts specifically for VIP Circle members -- a little more unpolished, a little bit more raw -- which makes me so nervous to say that because I really pride myself on having very professional sounding, very polished episodes.
So I recorded, sitting on the balcony outside of my Airbnb room, all of my deepest insights and some questions that came up for me about the craft and culture of podcasting. So this is a preview of episode 001 of what I am calling Craft & Culture BTS with Podcast Envy, exclusively for my Patreon supporters of $5 (or more) per month.
On episode 47 of Podcast Envy, my advice for how to win at podcast conferences was to choose one thing to focus on -- one specific intention that you really want to carry with you throughout the conference so that you don't get overwhelmed with all of the things because you can't possibly go to everything. You can't possibly do everything and you have to budget your resources -- time, money, and energy.
But this year I was having a difficult time figuring out my focus area.
At a certain point, I decided that I was going to use the conference as my oracle -- like using the conference as a tarot card deck and asking the conference some questions.
Where do I need to be?
What is my next step?
And what resources are available to support me in this?
Those were my three questions that I held in my mind and then everyday I would just show up.
And no this isn't just about me. This is also about you because I think that there are some takeaways here for you as a podcaster who wants to make an impact in whatever area or community or niche you find yourself.

No matter where you are in your podcasting journey, community -- like real flesh and blood community -- is vital to your survival and success! And it's not easy to come by. This conference will be a catalyst for you for that.
