Put a pause in your podcast.
You could take a moment of silence or skip a week to release a much better episode tomorrow. Your podcast will still appear in their feed the next time you publish, and the absence will only make them fonder. Your listeners chose to listen to your podcast, after all. Give them the chance to hear what you’re saying.
People today don’t asphyxiate from having too little to listen to. They hyperventilate on it. Give your audience time to breath and they will thank you.
Those who can’t wait a beat weren’t listening in the first place.
