We just published Episode #8 Season 1 Finale of The Manila Podcast documenting our ECQ diaries with my friend Spanky Enriquez. The MNL Pod is a hyper-local city podcast about life in Manila which we launched during Manila’s ECQ lockdown.
Recently, a friend asked me — Is it worth it to start a podcast? As we end season 1, I would like to share with you our podcast analytics and to answer the question, was it worth it?
First Things First
Thank you to all the 467 unique listeners of the podcast and awesome thank you for the support!
You can listen to the most popular episodes first or listen to our ECQ diaries chronologically.
Most listeners listen via Spotify on mobile and via the official website.
We are evolving to live stream our podcast recording before we publish the episode to engage more people.
Is it worth starting your own podcast?
Yes, it is an autobiography in audio and a timeless historical reference of our thoughts, fears, hopes and aspirations specially during this crucial point in the post-Covid Manila.
It is another creative outlet and a great collaboration platform for your friends that you care about. We had fun creating the podcast and I learned a lot about sharing an intimate version of yourself.
Don’t do it for the money or having sponsors for the podcast because you are doing it for the wrong reasons. Do it to inspire people by sharing your own struggles and leadership in times of crisis.
Watch out for Season 2 this first week of June.
Live an Awesome Life,
Founder, Our Awesome Planet
