Have you ever hit a massive wall because LIFE hot totally hard all of a sudden? Did you keep podcasting? Or did you simply say ‘screw it.’

What do you do when you have an idea and you can’t follow through?

Is podcasting an immature category? Discuss amongst yourselves.

How do you feel if someone in your industry starts to experiment with a style/format that is exactly like someone else?
