Don’t be lame.
Simple words… but something we live by. We have all been involved in lame projects but we want to fight the urge to be mediocre. Our collective knowledge of what to do (and a lot of what not to do) is something we want to share with you. So if you are building a podcast, resist the urge to be boring. Check out our stories and learn from our lameness (and others).
Trust your gut, you know when something is lame - don’t do it!
If more people listened to their gut about something being lame when it came to podcasting I might actually listen to podcasts on a regular basis. I have attempted to listen to podcasts in the past and I have yet to listen to the same podcast more than twice. They have either been too long, off topic, or just plain bad. There's nothing more irritating than listening to someone ramble about nothing with constant umm's and hmm's throughout the podcast.
