Pod-Crashing Episode 24 Ego


<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/18958850" data-resource="episode_id=18958850" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="dark" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" data-hide-download="false">Listen to "Pod-Crashing Episode 24 Ego" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>



Heard someone say the other day, “The one thing that should always appear at the top of your podcast list is your ego.”  I chuckled.  Mainly because it’s the one tool in the box that’s gonna get you in and out of trouble.  It’s going to be your biggest cheerleader and top notched judger. Somedays the ego’s not there or it shows up too strong.
That’s the area of the ego the person wanted future podcasters to pay close attention to.  When the ego is multiplied to super amped status.  When nearly next to everything on the episode is about me, me and me.  A guest is sharing their experience only to be interrupted by the host. 
It’s too easy to get locked up in this habit.  Nobody’s doing it to one up the visitor but rather to relate with.  To have something in common.  A reaction.  Heard too often the listeners begin to think today’s show is brought to you by me, me and one more me. 
First of all don’t hang up on your ego.  You need it for every show.  Think of your podcast as being bigger than life.  Believing in your product gets people excited.  Sure the ego can take you overboard and it may come across as being an alpha dog moment.  Just don’t be the storyteller all the time.  Ask short questions.  Make even shorter statements.  Get your guest engaged in you which is then transferred to your listeners. 
I host three self-help podcasts.  The Choice, Daily Ray of Light and The Lyrics From Billy’s Forest.  They look and smell like an ego driven monster.  As host I read from journals of personal experience.  Teaching other creative minds how to push their abilities without injuring their capabilities.  Laid out like a heart on a sleeve are the steps and stumbles.  The goal is to recover with a winning spirit and attitude. 
Through transparency listener connections are made.  It’s never been an over the top ego trip.  It’s confident, compassionate and filled with courage.  Knowing where the thoughts are going keeps the episodes focused.  Becoming aware of how the written words are delivered requires a truthful ear.  Listen to your podcast in the car on a busy road.  Sit in a crowded Panera Bread with ear buds blasting.  Put yourself in the same place your listeners are and see if the ego is getting in the way of building a bigger community.       
There’s a reason why content is the number one need for listeners.  Without your personal journey, I might as well be listening to a bump on a log.  Inflection needs your history.  Its texture controlled by the edges of your imagination attached to an ego.   
Turn your podcast into a drinking game.  Each time you say I or Me it’s a free shot of your specialty.
You’ve got to remember this is all coming from a person that believes there’s an “I” in teamwork.  Teams require the strength of being an individual before becoming stronger as a community of creative minds.
I totally grasp what the person was sharing.  It’s easy to put yourself out there too far and be judged by the indentation your ego created in a very fragile and still truly undiscovered new world of broadcasting.  But you’re gonna need that ego when you sit down with potential advertisers that have heard of podcasting but don’t trust it to bring them business. 
The line I keep hearing, “Wow I can definitely feel your passion for what you’re doing and it’s obvious that you’ve dug in deep and want to see this through.  I need some time to digest this.  I’ll get back to you.  In the meantime go out find an intern that’s willing to do some grunt work for ya. Someone that knows the world of podcasting because they live it.” 
Swiftly you turn to your smart phone.  You need an instant pick me up.  Right there in plain sight your ego sees how fast the numbers are growing in the UK and Japan.  Yeah but here’s the bigger truth.  What do those listeners in foreign countries have to do with Keith Hawthorne Ford in Belmont NC? 
Sharing your strength and belief in what’s being delivered is a door opener but that chunk of wood hanging on hinges can easily slam if the product being presented has no legs to keep growing in new directions.  The ego tends to get in the way of hearing about other methods of reaching a different more dependable audience. 
I’ve spent the past seven years designing and redesigning.  Shuffling everything including my interviewing technique.  Ask the questions in ways that can get the conversation on several podcasts rather than a well-defined niche that happens to like Rock stars that eat bacon on Fridays. 
A lot of feelings get hurt within the invisible walls of let’s do it my way.  If you make it beyond seven episodes you’ll begin noticing how hard your heart is becoming.  The attitude of in it to win it.  Convincing your ego that landing ten listens today is still a victory.  Oh wait!  You just made 13 cents on Anchor.fm.  Greatest show on the planet. 
Podcasting is no different than a Renaissance Festival.  There’s a lot of crafting going on and it’s the confident artist that figures out a way to be heard and listened to constantly because in the process of learning they put a muzzle on the ego.  Go into every project expecting to be bruised.  If the internet trolls don’t send you wickedly induced emails then celebrate the occasion. 
Be open to talk with other podcasters.  Facebook has specialized groups always willing to share new tricks on how to build your following without losing your foundation.  Be humble while being encouraging and that requires bits and pieces of a developed ego.  If that monster gets out of hand step back a few feet and count to ten. 
An injured ego has been trained to silence the artist.  Be present with your feelings while understanding how easy it is to injure yourself.  When that happens the next move could lead to fewer episodes.  The most common excuse, “My job was getting in the way or I just couldn’t think of any new subjects.” 
When those words start falling off the edge of your lips there’s nothing anyone can do.  Latch onto a book about podcasting.  Scan the web for ideas you can steal.  Write a letter to the host of your podcast and tell him or her that you miss them.  Rebuild that ego with encouraging comments that might actually make you giggle. 
So what’s the moral of the story?  Non-podcasters are starting to take note of how this new age of communicating content is raising the level of confidence inside the giving hearts of those that love to talk.  Although I’ve been known for doing it… The great vibe the ego is giving off doesn’t work for everyone.  Sharing the adventure is a huge part of the fun.  To get friends and family involved most of us would a podcast studio for them in their homes. 
The moment they drop in a hot cup of truth about not being interested in when a few under the breath remarks are made.  Keep the ego intact.  You’re going to need a fit for a king confident walk for those days when Paul McCartney’s PR crew says he’s calling in at 2pm eastern and the phone never rings. 
So in a huge way I agree with the original seed in this conversation, “The one thing that should always appear at the top of your podcast list is your ego.”  It’s good to have one but very damaging with it gets out of control.  And please please whatever you do.  Do not use those closest to your everyday heart soul as a place to get applause for your loyalty to podcasting.  You’re setting yourself up for the big hurt.

Over Britain's tens of thousands of years of civilization, its history has played host to a series of strange and mysterious rituals, events, and cultures. In Smithsonian Channel’s new series Mystic Britain, British comedian Clive Anderson and anthropologist Mary-Ann Ochota travel across the U.K. to explore the sacred sites and supernatural beliefs of the ancient Britons. It’s a road trip mixing mysticism with trademark British humor!

Winner of the British Comedy Award in 1991, Clive Anderson rose to fame as the host of the long-running improvisational comedy series Whose Line Is It Anyway. His career included stand-up comedy, script writing, and hosting a number of television shows including the BAFTA ceremonies, Britain’s equivalent of the Academy Awards.

Among the stories featured this season include:

• Revenants -- Clive visits a medieval village where a pile of bones was discovered. Were they human sacrifices, outsiders murdered by angry villagers, victims of cannibalism? Legend holds that they may have been revenants –the medieval undead who rose from their graves to cause chaos and spread evil.

• Mummies -- Clive disproves some common misconceptions about mummies, namely that they were all Egyptian and wrapped in bandages. He learns that the Bronze Age Britons had their own bizarre and gruesome way of preserving the dead.

• Rollright Stones -- In an anonymous field, Clive visits one of the lesser known mystic locations in Britain: The Rollright Stones. Some of the ancient stones placed at Rollright are twice as old as Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Egypt. For 6,000 years, people have been drawn to this strange place and told supernatural tales of witches, fairies and druids.

• Stonehenge -- Clive tries to unravel why Britain’s greatest Stone Age monument was built - and why whoever built it chose the middle of Salisbury Plain. Builder suspects include Merlin the wizard (with the help of giants), as well as the last of the Stone Age people.

ESPN 30 for 30 Podcasts, with The Undefeated, presents The Sterling Affairs, a multipart series examining Clippers owner Donald Sterling – including his rags-to-riches rise, his unlikely role as owner of the NBA’s least successful franchise, and his ultimate downfall, when his racist comments, secretly taped by his mistress V. Stiviano, were made public and he was forced by the NBA to sell his team. This is also the story about how a domestic drama boiled over, putting the NBA in crisis. Donald’s wife Shelly Sterling had abided by his infidelity and shameful business dealings, but it was her lawsuit against V. that finally exposed Donald Sterling for all to see.

The Sterling Affairs paints a picture of a city and a league in transition – from the dark days of Sterling’s reign to the team’s reversal into winners -- and the moment when NBA players and a new league commissioner found their voice and ushered in a new era.

Ramona Shelburne – an NBA Insider, senior writer for ESPN, national radio host and ESPN TV contributor – can preview this “almost too strange to believe” story from the 30 for 30 Podcast

Texas Flood by Alan Paul and Andy Aledort, is the first definitive biography one of music's last great bluesmen. This book is the culmination of three decades of work and hundreds of interviews with the people who knew Stevie Ray Vaughan best, both personally and professionally. In addition to speaking with Stevie himself, his brother Jimmie, and Double Trouble bandmates, Paul and Aledort interviewed a who's who of his heroes and musical peers, including: B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Warren Haynes, Albert King, Gregg Allman, Buddy Guy, Doyle Bramhall, Stevie Ray Vaughan's co-writer on many of his great original songs, and ex-bandmates including W.C. Clark, Angela Strehli, and Lou Ann Barton. TEXAS FLOOD includes over 170 photos to paint a complete picture of Vaughan's life, from his humble Texas beginnings to his premature death in August of 1990.
The book includes an epilogue by Stevie Ray's brother Jimmie Vaughan, a foreword by Double Trouble drummer Chris Layton and an afterword by Double Trouble bassist Tommy Shannon.
Stevie Ray Vaughan seemed poised for a new, limitless chapter of his life and career just a few years after his severe addiction to cocaine and alcohol almost killed him. His tempestuous marriage was over, and he was newly in love with a supportive girlfriend. His first collaborative album with big brother and first musical hero Jimmie Vaughan was complete and on the verge of being released. His last album with Double Trouble, In Step, had been his most successful, both critically and commercially. Instead, it all came to a screeching halt when Vaughan was killed in a helicopter crash on August 27, 1990 after that evening's dynamic performance with Eric Clapton, at the tender age of 35. In the three decades since his untimely passing, his legend and acclaim have grown exponentially. In spite of this, there has never been a full accounting of his story. Until now with TEXAS FLOOD.

Sitting inside The Vault at The Play Room in Charlotte Eddie Zee said, "We've all had what Abby is singing about.  An it should have been me moment."  In all walks of life music plays a huge role in how we're shaped into adults.  During those steps we're either listening to, watching or making the beats that somehow become the soundtrack to one or millions we'll never meet.  I didn't know at the age of 16 that forty one years later I would meet another 16 year old with the same passion to put music to work.  Not just in sound but through the vibration of inspiration.  I was that kid that spent unheard of hours staring at KISS posters trying to figure out their unseen personal image.  Captivated by the mystery and inspired by all things possible, being a member of the KISS Army meant I had to hit the road with more than a dream.  In all things I'd do the mission was to tell the story of every singer/songwriter and musician that somehow got to be more than normal kids plucking away on metal strings.  Gene Simmons not only played a huge role during my 40 years of radio but through the presence of music he's made a huge impact on Abby K's journey and sacrifice.  My first meeting with her felt like a mirrored image.  Across from me was every musician at 16.  The ambition, drive, loyalty, determination, dedication and willingness to reach far beyond the presence of all things right now.  The shyness was a place we've all stood.  Only to hear that she changes once the eye makeup is  laid into place upon a face that will soon crack the concrete walls that currently keep great Rock from being the fad favorite.  At 16 I too hid behind images in a band called Painted Face.  There's something about those masks musicians wear that enables the creative spirit to withstand the pressures of being compared.  Once inside the shoes of music the world feels good again.  Now lets sing.  The world is ready for Abby K.  The wait is over.

Mid-August marks the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the most famous rock concert of all time.

The bus, which was called “Light,” may be the most valuable piece of American automotive art ever. The only problem? No one can remember where it is. In The Woodstock Bus, filmmaker John Wesley Chisholm teams up with “Dr. Bob” Hieronimus, the bus’ original artist, in a journey across America’s highways back roads and junk yards to find the lost symbol of a generation, restore and repaint it, and bring it back to Woodstock where it belongs.

John Wesley Chisholm can discuss the new film, the unlikely paths he found himself in his goal to solve this 50-year mystery, and why the iconic bus remains a symbol of enduring hope for a better future. The Woodstock Bus is now available on CuriosityStream, the award-winning documentary streaming and on-demand service from Discovery Communications founder and media visionary John Hendricks.

Dealing with a verbally abusive father and an indifferent mother, Hannah is drawn into the alluring but dangerous drug-dealing scene of their wealthy Connecticut town. In I Love You Like That, Hannah must cope with a broken family and the assumed death of her ex-boyfriend Deacon who was shot, seeking comfort in the arms of all the wrong boys. But just outside of town, Deacon awakes in the hospital, realizing he has been entangled in a federal undercover sting operation as their informant.

Squeeze have announced the American leg of "The Squeeze Songbook 2019" tour that will see the UK legends play their extensive list of hits as well as rare, lesser-known gems from their back catalogue and solo careers. Tickets are on sale. For ticket information, visit http://www.squeezeofficial.com/shows/.
"I am over the moon to be announcing the 2019 tour with Squeeze," says lead vocalist and guitarist Glenn Tilbrook. "We've had something of a renaissance in the last few years, and look forward to this continuing, as we will play a set of songs that are both new, contemporary and as innovative as people have come to expect from us, along with the old beauties."
With a previous show at Coachella, forthcoming appearances at the KAABOO Del Mar and Bourbon and Beyond festivals, two critically-acclaimed albums in the last three years, numerous headlining appearances at festivals and sold-out solo shows, "something of a renaissance" seems like an understatement. The band will bring their scintillating live performances to the USA with a mix of not only the hits, but also rarities that span their 45-year career both as Squeeze and solo artists.
"I feel excited about the tour," adds guitarist Chris Difford. "It's a great band full of dedicated, hardworking, passionate people and we have a fabulous catalogue of songs to dip in and out of, so I feel completely blessed. I can't wait to strap on the electric guitar again and sing the songs that got me where I am today."
Difford and Tilbrook have been compared to Lennon and McCartney since "Take Me I'm Yours", their first release in 1978, blasted the band into the forefront of the UK music scene. Following hits including "Tempted", "Black Coffee in Bed", "Hourglass", "Cool For Cats", "Up The Junction" and "Pulling Mussels From The Shell", Squeeze established themselves as a vital part of the quintessential rock scene. These hits also established Difford and Tilbrook as two of the most prolific songwriters of their time with each amassing a wealth of melody-rich earworms over the past four decades as both Squeeze and solo artists. "The Difford and Tilbrook Songbook 2019" tour will capture the works of two of the most talented songsmiths working today.

In PLEASED TO MEET ME: Genes, Germs, and the Curious Forces That Make Us Who We Are (published by National Geographic) research scientist Bill Sullivan offers a groundbreaking new window into how genetics, epigenetics and microbes work with our environment to make us who we are. Sullivan, a professor of pharmacology and microbiology at Indiana University School of Medicine, draws on cutting-edge research to illuminate how our genes not only dictate our physical traits but can also have an enormous influence on our personality and behavior.

With wit and humor, Sullivan deconstructs provocative studies suggesting that certain genes influence whether someone is a liberal or conservative, violent or timid, lean or obese. But genetic makeup, he explains, is only part of the picture. Through a process called epigenetics, the environment can actually modify our DNA, which may explain how the behavior of our parents — for example, our mother’s behavior during pregnancy or whether our father was a smoker — can play a wide-ranging role in obesity, depression, anxiety and more.

Sullivan also examines recent studies regarding how our microbiota — the trillions of microbes living inside our gut — can affect our behavior and mood. The book draws from the latest psychology research to reveal why and how our brain can trick us into performing irrational behaviors or actions detrimental to our well-being and society. It also explains why people with opposing points of view struggle to convince one another to change their minds.

Steve  Gold, co-founder of Peace of Stage, LLC, was at the  1969 festival, and years later obtained the original wooden stage from the event. The company is now celebrating the legacy of the festival by creating collectible artifacts from that very stage. 
“We decided to create various items of that legendary festival by offering small pieces of (literally) the centerpiece  of the event, the Woodstock stage – the same floorboards on which Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and other rock greats  made magic – as collectibles they can treasure,” says Gold. “People have an intense emotional attachment to the festival, whether they were there or not. With the Woodstock 50th concert still  up in the air, the original stage is the only artifact that exists for people to touch and reflect upon. Its importance is beyond measure – it’s like the Holy Grail of rock music. To be able to give them a chance to own sections of the original stage is something  I had to see through.” 
Gold, who grew up near the concert site in Bethel, NY (and who attended all three days of Woodstock when he was  just 15 years old), recalls how the stage was the focal point for the nearly half million people in attendance. “I had a friend whose father worked electricity for the festival, so I had unrestricted access to what we might call the backstage area,” he says.  “I’ll never forget all of those people looking at the stage, half a million people directing their energy to one place. There were no cell phones; nobody was taking pictures to post on Instagram. You had a million eyeballs witnessing the greatest music that  was ever played in real time. And it was all happening on these pieces of plywood.”
Weeks after the concert, Gold helped his girlfriend’s father unload pieces of plywood from a truck that were to  be used to build a paddleboard court. “I was told it was the wood from the original Woodstock stage, and I couldn’t believe it,” he says. “I was literally holding sections of where Jimi Hendrix stood.”
Forty-eight years after Woodstock, Gold couldn’t shake the memory, and he  traveled back to the Robi Lane bungalow colony in upstate New York (about 15 miles from the original concert site at Yasgur’s Farm), where that same paddleboard court still existed. Much of the wood from the Woodstock stage also remained, and Gold, realizing  its significance, persuaded the owners of the bungalow colony to let him take possession of it. “I got 3,000 square feet,” he says. “There was still painting on the wood in certain places, and I knew they were markings. I looked at concert pictures and said,  ‘That’s where Richie Havens was playing.’”
To honor the Golden Anniversary of Woodstock, Gold, along with Randy Garcia  and David Marks, founded Peace of Stage to offer music fans the opportunity to purchase pieces of the genuine authenticated flooring in various collectibles, such as Peace Pendants, Stage Frames (with a four-square-inch piece of the stage) and Stage Cubes  (which feature nine-square-inch pieces of the stage).
As Matt Marks, the Director of Digital Marketing for Peace of Stage, explains,  the minute people open these collectibles the effect is profound: “Something they’ve only seen in pictures is suddenly right in their hands. It’s something they can hold and touch. The connection is immediate. We’ve even heard from people who say they’ve put  their ear to the pieces of wood, and they can feel the vibrations of the music.”
Adds Gold, “We get emails from people who have bought these pieces as remembrances  of loved ones. The stories we hear are so touching and gratifying.”

The book is at the same time a deep examination of the causes and potential cures of the quintessential 21st century American sickness-public mass shootings. At the heart of that examination is an unpacking of America's deep polarization and political gridlock. It addresses head on the question of why? Why is American gun violence so different from other countries? Why does nothing seem to change?
The "Parkland kids" inspired hope of change. But the ultimate questions stubbornly remain-what should, what can, and what will Americans do to reduce gun violence? Tragedy in Aurora argues that the answer lies in a conscious cultural redefinition of American civic order.
Over recent decades, America has defined a cultural "new normal" about guns and gun violence. Americans express formalistic dismay after every public mass shooting. But many accept gun violence as an inevitable, even necessary, and to some laudable part of what it means to be "American." Although Americans claim to be shocked with each new outrage, so far they have failed to coalesce around an effective way to reduce gun death and injury. The debate is bogged down in polarized and profoundly ideological political and cultural argument. Meanwhile, America continues to lead the globe in its pandemic levels of gun deaths and injuries. Combined with the cynical "learned helplessness" of its politicians, the result is gridlock and a growing roll of victims of carnage.
Is there a path out of this cultural and political gridlock? Tragedy in Aurora argues that if America is to reduce gun violence it must expand the debate and confront the fundamental question of "who are we?" Tom Diaz gives a new understanding of American culture and the potential for change offered by the growing number and ongoing organization of victims and survivors of gun violence. Without conscious cultural change, the book argues, there is little prospect of effective laws or public policy to reduce gun violence in general and public mass shootings in particular.

Cherie Currie And Brie Darling

The Runaways front-woman and solo artist Cherie Currie and Fanny drummer and singer Brie Darling were ‘70s icons who got the headlines.  Unfortunately, they didn’t always get the credit they deserved as strong women holding their own in all girl bands forging new ground in a rock & roll playing field then dominated by their male peers.

While Currie and Darling had a mutual admiration for each other, the two didn’t meet until 2017, when Darling reached out to Currie to contribute vocals to Fanny Walked the Earth, a reunion album from the trailblazing band Fanny, - the first all-female band signed to a major label (Reprise) in 1969. Now fierce friends and cool collaborators, they’re singing together on the new album, The Motivator - a 12-song album featuring nine classic covers by bands including T. Rex, The Rolling Stones, Buffalo Springfield, Stevie Wonder, and John Lennon, plus three powerful new originals, including the tough rocker “Too Bruised” and the topical “This Is Our Time”. The tour is set for late 2019.
"The Motivator" also features a host of family and friends to do backups, including Currie’s sister, actress Sondra Currie, her ex-husband, actor Robert Hays; friends, Susan Olsen of Brady Bunch fame and actress/director, Allison Scagliotti.  Darling’s brother, Henry Berry is on “He Ain’t Heavy”; and brother Phil Berry does a guitar solo on the Kinks tune “Do it Again” while her sister, Rory Berry Bishop plays drums on Thunderclap Newman’s “Something in the Air.”  Patti Quatro—Suzi’s sister and a member of Fanny—plays guitar and sings on “For What It’s Worth.”
Darling, also known as Brie Howard, has recorded as drummer, singer and writer with Fanny in the ‘70s, as well as with the bands American Girls in the mid ‘80s and the Boxing Gandhis, who have put out three albums since the mid-90s.  As a backing vocalist, and percussionist, Darling played with or has written songs for the Pointer Sisters, Jimmy Buffett, ELO, Ringo Starr, Carole King and more.

Darling and Currie both have also acted in several films.  Currie starred with Jodie Foster in "Foxes" (1980) and Brie starred in the film "Android," opposite Klaus Kinski.  Brie’s creativity also extends to the kitchen as she is a cake artist who won her episode on the Food Network’s Cake Wars.

Episode 22: When It Finally Sinks In
When what finally sinks in?  This!  Well what is this?  Right.  Before 2012 I was all out radio.  Not against podcasting.  I was just radio.  I mean a totally sick puppy that spent 12 to 15 hours a day writing and producing commercials while performing physical shows in several different markets.  Part of the workday plan was to blog.  The goal?  Write about everything.  Not text.  Not IM.  Blog!  It was my real voice.  I could say anything.  Which put me in several large circles outside the realms of radio. 
Cool!  A following that wasn’t being controlled by program directors and consultants.  I was in charge of my own content and how it was being delivered.  The goal was to drive the numbers up on the stations website.  Big task for a non-morning show air talent.  Not a battle.  No war wounds.  Just an open mind to walk and not jump into this new age of sharing information. 
I loved my readers so much that letting them hear my physical verbal inflection had to be the next step.  I know!  I’ll Vlog!  They can see and hear me!  No no noooo.  A total disaster.  It was at this point of the digital journey that I realized most blog readers want the intimacy of reading alone.  Pictures of long haired radio people with radio voices interrupted the interpretation of what they were pulling from the blogs. 
My numbers dropped in the worst way.  How the hell was I going to get them back?  Angry at my decision to one up the performance I chose to walk away from the entire digital process to write a book called Scrambled Eggs.  I wouldn’t return until it was published. 
When it finally sinks in.  When what finally sinks in?  This!  Well what is this?  Right.  That 2.5 year break from blogging and pretending to be a radio performer is what set the stage up for podcasting to take up space inside this open field of who the hell am I?  Then there it was.  A television commercial for Chevrolet bragging about how their new models featured wireless internet. 
My Beatles moment.  Blue Tooth was going to connect smart phones to the sound system in the car.  I wanted to be on that platform!  But with what?  I talked over song intros.  Podcasts are an hour or longer.   
I didn’t have a clue as to what I was doing.  I sat down many times with national decision makers.  The man that brought me to the Carolina’s in 1985 seemed ok with the idea but I can still hear him, “It doesn’t make money.  So no you don’t have my attention.” 
Every publication and broadcast blog spoke of the proper podcast length but nobody could decide.  There wasn’t enough research to prove anything right.  I was in charge of production for six radio stations I couldn’t stop the wheel to pull off an hour long show.  Which is a cheap way of saying I had no fricken idea what I was going to talk about. 
When it finally sinks in.  When what finally sinks in?  This!  Well what is this?  Right.  Wait!  It’s 2012!  Those closest to the money in broadcasting aren’t interested in what I’m doing means I can make up my own rules!  It was sinking in!  You can’t break something if what you’re trying to create doesn’t exist. 
Sixty second Classic Rock Reports.  Yes!  The more I did the more listeners I was picking up.  Before long I had the attention of music promoters which led to actors, authors and famous chefs.  But something was still missing.  My real voice.  The one created by blogging.  Where I could talk about anything!  Vlogging didn’t work, why would I take a chance on podcasting?  I finally broke the ice in 2013 with a Podcast called The Choice.  My addiction to creativity would serve as the platform.  Normal people don’t put in 12 to 15 hours at work.  I had a habit and it was all connected to creativity. 
Utilizing my passion to write blogs I redesigned the layout by getting the attention off me and onto the listener.  I’m not the only creative person on the planet.  Outside of Julia Cameron where are the coaches and mentors that lead the builders and shapers through the desert?  They’re not there! 
When it finally sinks in.  When what finally sinks in?  This!  Well what is this?  Right.  Bringing life to a niche requires unique and a willingness to learn how to fail.  Each time I found my face in the mud I went deeper with the exposure of what it’s like to be a creative.  Transparency became the steps that started to climb.     
While the conversations with the people of fame continued to grow stronger and stronger so was the podcast The Choice.  Texture was beginning to take shape.  Learning how to find listeners meant playing by the same blogging rules.  Write and talk about everything.  One podcast will lead listeners to other podcasts.  Cross pollinating the podcasts served as an invitation for listeners to explore.  Oh he does this too!  And this? 
A friend asked me in 2015, “What are you doing?  One minute you’re landing a conversation with Yoko Ono then you’re talking about writing books.  Your Facebook page doesn’t represent the person I thought I knew.”   
Remember I am no expert.  I’m a daily student.  I show up in this recording studio every morning at 5:30 to try and figure out why I’m here and not where my dreams should’ve landed me.  Only one GM supported my footsteps during my final moments in terrestrial radio.  He was enthusiastic because I was energized.  He listened to my gut reaction to how listeners could get what they on demand.  Any subject about every possible thing.  This is where you put in the sponsor. 
His exact words, “I don’t know what you’re doing but I understand why you’re doing it.” 
Today iHeart Radio boasts with a very loud voice how they’re the world’s largest podcast outlet.  I’m blessed to host 9 completely different podcasts on the platform. 
So what’s the moral of the story?  When it finally sinks in.  When what finally sinks in?  This!  Well what is this?  Right.  That moment when you decide how important your art is to the world.  When you sit down and record your first podcast.  Struggle to get the second finished while endlessly envisioning new ideas that could lead my listeners to your performance. 
When it finally sinks in that podcasting isn’t going away.  It’s just getting started.  There’s a lot of weeds in this wheat field.  Quoting Steven Furtick, you can’t pull what doesn’t belong in the field out.  You’ll injure the roots of the wheat.  In all things podcasting, great shows to shake your head can’t believe I just sat through that.  Let it grow.  Let the weeds live with the wheat.

Grant Wilson And Mustafa Gatollari From Ghost Hunters On A&E
Fifteen years after introducing the world to the field of authentic paranormal investigation, Ghost  Hunters returns to A&E on Wednesday, August 21 at 9pm (ET/PT.) Original team leader Grant Wilson and his handpicked group of professional ghost hunters use their decades of field experience to investigate  hauntings across the country.

Engaging forensic experts, historical records and the most innovative technology available, the new squad will help everyday people who are struggling with unexplained supernatural phenomena. The team is committed to discovering the truth to give relief to  those plagued by paranormal activity and will follow the evidence they uncover wherever it may lead. The new crew working alongside Grant includes paranormal investigators Daryl Marston, Kristen Luman, Brandon Alvis, Mustafa Gatollari, Brian Murray and Richel  Stratton.

In the the first episode, "Ghost Hunters: School Spirit,” Wilson and his team investigate activity at a century old high school in Pocatello, Idaho, after being contacted by the principal. During her tenure, the principal has dismissed many of these rumors  as mere urban legends. However, when the school’s security cameras capture an unexplained electrical disturbance followed by what appears to be a ghostly apparition in the hallway, she begins to fear there may be some truth to the local legends. Might Pocatello  High School truly be haunted? Or is there some other explanation? The Ghost Hunters are on the case to investigate.

Grant S. Wilson has been actively involved in all types of paranormal investigations since his first intense encounter with the supernatural at age 15. He has paved the way for much  of the modern field through his work with The Atlantic Paranormal Society (T.A.P.S), a group he co-founded nearly 30 years ago. Grant’s uniquely tempered approach to the discipline helped capture the world’s attention on Ghost  Hunters and Ghost Hunters International, both of which  he produced. Grant has been featured on many popular news, talk shows and late night programs, has authored six books on the paranormal, and is even an avid composer, Grant has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people and impacted millions more worldwide  with his extensive knowledge and down-to-earth technique.

Mustafa Gatollari is the paranormal historian and site analyst of the “Ghost Hunters” team. Mustafa has over 80 investigations under his belt in his decade long work, focusing  primarily on private homes and helping ordinary people. As a writer, Mustafa likes to approach an investigation the way an investigative journalist might approach a story – he not only enjoys conducting interviews with witnesses and digging into a property’s  public records, but he’s also skilled in uncovering information quickly, which is an asset in any investigation under a tight schedule.
