Transcripts

Speaker:

There are those who would have podcasters believe that they have to grind out

Speaker:

episodes day after day, week after week, month after month, and never take a break.

Speaker:

I am not one of those.

Speaker:

‘Cuz that’s dumb.

Speaker:

Today's episode is brought to you by Gumball, the premier marketplace to easily

Speaker:

and efficiently buy host-read podcast ads.

Speaker:

Gumball provides a transparent and modern buying platform, connecting great

Speaker:

podcasts with the best advertisers.

Speaker:

Gumball takes away all the logistical headaches for podcasters and advertisers

Speaker:

alike by managing inventory schedules, providing easy and consistent ad

Speaker:

script instructions, easy aircheck uploading, and ensuring payments

Speaker:

are made in a timely fashion.

Speaker:

Best of all, Gumball takes pride in offering the most podcaster-friendly

Speaker:

terms as a standard, meaning more money flowing directly to the podcaster.

Speaker:

As it should be!

Speaker:

If your show is pulling down more than 10,000 downloads per episode, you owe

Speaker:

it to yourself to talk to Gumball at Gumball.fm to see how they can help you

Speaker:

make even more money with your podcast.

Speaker:

That's Gumball.fm.

Speaker:

And tell 'em Evo sent you!

Speaker:

Hello, and welcome to another Podcast Pontifications with me, Evo Terra.

Speaker:

Mental health is important to podcasters.

Speaker:

Family is important to podcasters.

Speaker:

Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is important to podcasters.

Speaker:

But podcasters, perhaps like you, don't always get to focus on those things.

Speaker:

Sometimes podcasters are busy focusing on other things like, you know, keeping

Speaker:

income flowing, either through the podcast or through some other way

Speaker:

so that those podcasters can keep affording to make their podcast.

Speaker:

And hey man, I get it.

Speaker:

I've been there.

Speaker:

If you're there right now, you've got my sympathies.

Speaker:

May you claw your way out of this soon.

Speaker:

Now, if you're an infrequent listener or a brand new listener to Podcast

Speaker:

Pontifications - and look, I know infrequent is not a bad idea.

Speaker:

I put out a lot of content.

Speaker:

I get it.

Speaker:

This episode is going to be unusual, and here's why.

Speaker:

In acknowledgement of all of those important things I just mentioned above,

Speaker:

and probably a whole lot more of them, I'm not producing episodes this week.

Speaker:

Nope.

Speaker:

I'm on vacation with family members working on the work side less and the

Speaker:

life side more while I balance things out.

Speaker:

From the beaches of Belize, actually, in Central America, in case you're curious.

Speaker:

And while I do think it might be fun to record a podcast from Belize,

Speaker:

and I also recognize that there are already several podcasts produced

Speaker:

in Belize, I'm not going to do that.

Speaker:

Instead, I'm going to enjoy this warm Caribbean ocean right outside.

Speaker:

I'm going to eat lots of rice and beans, maybe some tree chicken.

Speaker:

I'm gonna try to drink the country out of Belikin if I can, all while

Speaker:

trying to sneak the occasional fried plantain from Sheila Dee's plate.

Speaker:

I'm sure I'll be posting lots of quirky photos and wild thoughts on my Twitter

Speaker:

account as is my want, so follow me over there if you would like @EvoTerra.

Speaker:

But I do know this.

Speaker:

I shall be back on Monday, October the 11th, 2021 with yet

Speaker:

another Podcast Pontifications.

Speaker:

Cheers!
