Over the last few weeks, I’ve been hinting at a forthcoming Puttylike podcast. I’ve wanted to do this for some time now, and I have to say, I’m really excited about this project!
I think the podcast will be a great way to bring the Puttylike community together and ignite everyone’s creativity. My hope is to take what I’m doing here on the blog and expand it. I want to reach more multipotentialites and inspire more people to embrace their puttylike nature by designing lives that are based around passion, variety and freedom.
More than anything though, I’m super excited about meeting more of you and I want to make the show as interactive as possible.
Where We’re At
Over the last three weeks, my co-host Abe and I have been meeting up once a week via Skype to record episodes. (It’s pretty amazing that two Scanners on opposite sides of the continent, who have never met in person, can just up and do that. It goes to show how limitless the collaborative possibilities are these days.)
The first two episodes have been recorded and edited and we’re recording a couple more this weekend. The idea is to record a few episodes in advance so that we don’t have to rush to get them out on iTunes once the show goes live.
This should allow us to maintain a regular release schedule. That way you’ll know exactly when to expect an episode and you won’t be waiting and waiting. I listen to a lot of podcasts myself and I know how irritating that can be.
What it’s All About
The content of the show will be similar to the articles here on Puttylike and the ideas discussed throughout The ‘Undeclared for Life’ Manifesto. We’ll be riffing on things like productivity, self-employment, dream-pursuit, fears, location-independence, and what it means to be a multipotentialite.
Most weeks we’ll choose one specific topic and discuss it, delving in deeper than would be possible in a blog post. Occasionally we’ll interview guests- people who have found ingenious ways to incorporate their scanner personalities into their daily schedules and income streams.
We’re going to have a few special segments on the show as well. We might run experiments on each other (and on you) to test out different productivity models. We’re thinking of tracking Abe’s quest to become self-employed, because we figure it could be useful to other multipotentialites who are aching to get out of their jobs.
We might also have a segment on the show that features your projects. I would love to do a spotlight on some of your creative endeavors, maybe conduct interviews, and who knows, possibly hook community members up with other community members for collaborative purposes. How awesome would that be! I mean, we’re such a diverse and talented bunch, I’m sure we’d easily be able to fill in each others’ gaps.
What do You Want to Hear on the Show?
This podcast is really for you. It would therefore be monumentally helpful for us to hear what it is that you want!
Please don’t be shy. We really want your input so that we can make the show as awesome as possible. Leave your thoughts in the comments field below, or if you prefer, shoot me a quick email.
