We just published the 108th episode of the Christ is All podcast. I won’t tell you what the topic is. You can find out yourself when you listen to it (I assume all of you have subscribed by now, except for the newbies to the blog).
Here’s a recent email I received by someone who is in his early 30s that sparked the idea for this blog post:
“Frank, just want you to know that your podcast is changing my life. I’ve binged on all 100+ episodes and they are amazing! I love the variety, the humor, and the different types of music in the beginning. My only regret is that I wish I would have known about it several years ago when I was going through some stuff that you address.”
Two things struck me about this note.
(1) This person “binged” on the episodes. People often do that with TV shows via Netflix or Amazon Prime. They’ll watching one show after the other. The thought never occurred to me that one can “binge” on podcast episodes. Now that we have 108 episodes published, I invite you to binge on them.
All the episodes can be downloaded to your Apple device on iTunes here.
If you have an Android phone, you can subscribe using Beyond Pod.
If you don’t have smart phone, you can stream them all on your computer here.
(2) At the end of his note, he said what I often hear, which always makes me sad. “My only regret is that I wish I would have known about it several years ago when I was going through some stuff that you address.”
In looking at the podcast analytics, we have countless subscribers, but relatively few of them share the episodes with their friends. New subscribership is pretty low and the listen-rate isn’t increasing.
This is significant because every year I re-examine the different ways I use my time (which is a limited resource), and “cut” what’s not bearing fruit and growing.
So I’m debating on whether or not to continue the podcast in 2015. As I’ve said before, it takes a lot of my time to produce each episode. As a steward who wishes to be faithful (1 Cor. 4:2), I need to spend my limited time on what’s growing. So I won’t hesitate to stop the podcast if it’s not seeing growth.
Consequently, if you want me to continue to produce episodes, would you take a moment to share the podcast link with your friends on a regular basis . . . starting today?
We’ve made it super easy for you to do so.
Just go to frankviola.org/love
There are thousands of Christians in their 20s, 30s, and 40s – our main audience – who have never listened to the podcast and don’t even know it exists.
You’re the key to letting them know how much you’re benefiting from it. Only this type of “worth of mouth” will persuade others to subscribe.
Enjoy the new episode and your “binge” on all the previous shows.
