The 40-60 minute conversation on your podcast could probably be just as substantive in 20-30. Generally, listeners favor shorter episodes over longer ones. But only 15% of podcasts are under the 10-minute mark (via Demand Sage, Sept. 2023). I share tips for getting your podcast to the perfect length listeners enjoy.

Is vocal fry bad for your vocal cords and hurting others' perception of you? Or is it maybe cute? My work wife Allison Pons (@allisonpons) joined me to discuss. Think: "This is your captain speaking..."

Threads burned bright for two weeks then DAU were down over 80%.

Twitter's rebrand to X wiped out ~$4 billion in brand equity. RIP the bird.
