After listening to the podcast, I began to more seriously consider the idea...and the root of my fear. The truth is that creating a podcast IS a lot like creating a work of art. In the beginning, there will always be at least some level of fear of judgement and/or failure...and with time, it'll dissipate. But in order to reach that point in time, it is necessary to take that initial step into the unknown.
So, after taking a deep breath, I took my first step... and guess what? I LOVED it! Sure it's not perfect, but neither am I, and I am okay with that. Full of rookie "mistakes" and recorded in one take, I hope you enjoy my first podcast attempt--and if you don't, that's okay too. :)
