    Smart move - give the people more of what they want. I have to admit, one of my favorite podcasts is "Millionaires Unveiled." As much as I like to say it's for the mindset and tactics, there's a certain degree of voyeurism behind it as well.

      Just a comment, but I would prefer to "read" about the interview rather than listen to a podcast.

      Everyone has a story. I predict this will be a great hit.

        I agree with Bev that I would rather read the stories.

          I am not an expert on WCI's business but I've heard that the spoken word is much easier to monetize than the written word in this day and age. EVERYONE has a podcast, and blog posts can be farmed out to guests or used as ads.

            You know the podcasts have shownotes, right? You can read to your heart's content. Verbatim if you want.

              I wish that were true. Forums, Facebook Groups, Podcasts...all difficult to monetize. I'm not sure we're "in the black" on any of those three. Difficult to track of course.

                I am 13.6 x more likely to listen to the podcast of these personal vignettes than I am to read about them in the blog. It's much more interesting to me to hear the person's story in their own voice. Several years ago, just because I could download it from the library, I listened to the autobiography of Toni Tennille (you youngsters will have to google that one). It was read by her and fascinating and captivating, and in a million years I would not have read it.

                  Agree. I really like podcasts. I feel like I am hanging out with the people. I was ice fishing up in Maine listening to this one and trying to stay warm and convince the fish to bite while I listened. Felt like those folks were on the ice with me.

                    I read the shownotes. I have a real hard time listening to a podcast. Same goes for recorded lectures or even now with these zoom meetings. My mind tends to wander.

                    Funny because I listen to audiobooks just fine.

                    Anyway I appreciate that the podcast is available in readable form. I wish all of them were.

                      I prefer to read because I no longer have any commute. When I walk outside I like to listen to the birds or stop and talk to neighbors. I know strange.

                        I know podcasts are popular, but I can’t force myself. Data rate is too slow. It is odd though because I am good with audiobook s and typically have one on for the commute. I think the difference is that I want the podcast to get to the point and I want the book to last. If I read I burn through the books too fast.
