Hello!!!!!! Y’all our little community has GROWN! In today’s episode, I’m just going to give you brief little update and ask you to celebrate with me for a hot second.
Dive right into outright numbers:
Including this episode, 56 episodes, 3 of which were Saturday School bonuses. First was Kaitlyn Comtock on Nativating Your Priorities, second was Christine Kaminske on Making New Friends; third was Gretchen Kirkpatrick on Life on a Farm. If you haven’t checked out those episodes, they’re GREAT, and you should know that we have a slew of new Saturday School interviews coming at you in the summer quarter. I’m pumped. If you know of a teacher who is a badass at something, please reach out to me and aggressively CC them to be interviewed. I love these conversations and the numbers are showing y’all do to--these are our most downloaded.
Speaking of downloads…. I had a goal of 500 listens in the first quarter, which seemed wild! But this past week, we actually surpassed 1000! I’m shocked and really grateful for your support, your sharing, and your ratings and reviews. It’s all very exciting and I’m very grateful to be connecting with you through podcasting.
So, coming up in the second quarter, we’re going to have three new themes:
April’s theme is about finding your community, and we’ll talk everything from local arts appreciation to local news. May we’ll dive into one of my FAVORITE topics: travel! So, think things like road trips, packing tips, and planning vacations. Finally, I’m titling June “The LEAST Comfortable,” and we’ll dive into topics like divorce, navigating religious difficulty, interpersonal conflict with people you love, and explaining your brokenness to others. It’s going to be so much fun, I can hardly wait. But really, we’ll touch on all of these topics with humor and shitton of grace because we are all deeply imperfect so we might as well be imperfect together.
If you’d like to support the podcast I’m going to give you a crash course in how to do that here, starting from least expensive to most.
That wraps up our NTINYT podcast quarterly business update! If you haven’t checked out the website, go do that! I think you’ll like it. And I’ll see you next week for April’s first unit: Local Arts Appreciation!
