Biting off more than I can chew

I managed for a couple of weeks to do two episodes a week. A ‘couple’ in the strictest sense of the term, I managed 2 weeks. 🙂 Turns out that recording and editing two episodes a week of a sleep aid podcast wasn’t good for my sleep. So now I’m tapering off a bit.

The more free-form improvised episodes I’ve been releasing are more achievable though. If I was going for more formal written episodes like my first two, even weekly releases would probably be beyond me. Full time work at my day job as well as family life means finding the balance.

I also really need a proper mic. My headset works okay, but I need to edit out a lot of disturbing lip-smacking noises that would not help people to sleep. And that takes up most of my time in the edit.

*** Don’t forget to take a look at my latest episode or the archives for a night’s sleep.


Sleep aid podcast – Launch day incoming

The introductory episode of our sleep aid podcast will launch on Monday the 4th of March. Once the show is up and running regularly, release day will be every Monday.

My thinking here is that it’s a fresh week, so it’s a good time for people to have something new to help them through the stresses of a new week.

The initial aim though is to try release initially on an accelerated schedule. Because of the sleep aid podcast concept it will be helpful for listeners to get a solid 6-8 hours of content to put on in the background overnight. So I would like for anyone discovering the show, even early on, to have an archive.

So at the very least we will have an episode every Monday, but I’m hoping for one extra every week, as soon as I can get episodes written and recorded.

As mentioned elsewhere the writing is the challenging part. So expect some experimentation in the next couple of weeks.
