“If I was to start a podcast today, I would focus on transparency as the key theme and emotion. I would start a podcast that is violently interesting, and violently transparent, and that makes you feel uncomfortable.”

The advice can also be applied to a video series, blog, or newsletter.
Speaking of which, if you write a newsletter I invite you to join my Newsletter Creators Facebook group!
