~ ZZZCast ~
After some considerable soul searching, the curator has decided not to launch the ZZZCast podcast this fall.
The reasons are many.
The podcasting world is in flux–podcasters aren’t protected from media conglomerates, they’re not earning back money for hard work like they deserve, and audiences may be expected to pay for content in the near future.
My work-life balance is threatened by the acquisition of a new project, which will be clearly yet another “passion” project, which I can’t afford.
And many of you already know I have a chronic illness and, though I have been able to carve out a nurturing space as a paid healthcare writer, I just do not have the energy or brainspace for the kind of learning curve and multitasking that starting a new podcast requires.
Many thanks go to those who have been supportive and interested in my efforts in podcasting; I’m sure the podcast would have been fantastic, but after undertaking a personal risk-benefit analysis of the venture, it doesn’t make sense for me to go this route.
If you are looking for a sleep health podcaster and want to take on the financial risk and technical work behind the scenes, I could be the right person for that singular effort, I just can’t be the solopreneur in the podcasting space.
