10 Times As Many Listeners! (A Podcast Host’s Thank-You)

OK. Brag time.

My podcast is in it’s third year of existence. Listen to a few of the recent episodes while you get a super brief overview of the show’s growth:

Ep.89 | Mallory Shotwell – Founder and Director of CULTIVATE on local art, community, ”making it”, & marketing Creative Ops

As a former Montessori teacher, Mallory Shotwell's interest in art and business make her a great person to start a group like CULTIVATE, a collection of artists, teachers, and industry folks. With the acquisition of their new space in Grand Rapids, Michigan, they'll be able to highlight contemporary artists and teach community-based art & business classes, while also serving as a "traditional" art gallery for art shows and installations.

Year One: Meh…

Not a lot of downloads. Not a lot of marketing and outreach either. Honestly, I didn’t tell anyone about it. I wanted to see if it grew on its own. Which it did.

Year Two: Here We Go

The podcast had 5x as many downloads! People from outside the local area started to listen.

Year Three: Doing Its Own Thing

This year the downloads have doubled from year two. That means the podcast has grown nearly 10x its original listenership as we near the end of 2022.


And I thank you all. Very sincerely.


Don’t forget to take a look at my novel, if you like scifi, horror, and/or time travel.


Christopher Tallon is the author of the dark, adventurous, time-travel novel Switchers.

Well, I’m that kid in the corner / All f**ked up and I wanna so I’m gonna

Take a piece of the pie, why not, I’m not quittin’ / Think Ima change up my style just to fit in
