Podcast

The podcast has allowed me to respond to the increase in demand for tech support during the COVID-19 pandemic, as we’ve seen an increase of people at home using their computers and devices for work and other purposes.

Last year I produced about 30 hours of podcast content in 56 episodes averaging a little over 30 minutes per episode. These are audio recordings of the advice I would give for the most common questions that people regularly ask of me, and usually pay me for answering.

With the podcast audios available, when people would call asking a common question, I could point them to the audio with the answers they needed. This allowed me to help more people, and saved money for those needing help.

If I take the number of plays for each episode, and total those up, there have been about 625 hours of content that people have listened to. This is mostly tech advice that I would typically charge $100 per hour for. So, assuming it was helpful to those who listened, it’s the equivalent of giving away $62,500 in consulting.

“Waste” ~ Lyrics by Foster Mark

I’ll hold your hand
When you are feeling mad at me
When the monsters they wont go
The windows, they wont close
I’ll pretend to see what you see

How long, I say how long
Will you re-live the things that are gone?
The devil’s on your back
But I know you can shake him off

And every day that you want to waste
That you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up
That you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change
That you want to change, yeah
I’ll help you see it through
‘Cause I just really want to be with you

You know it’s funny
How freedom can make us feel contained
When the muscles in our legs
Aren’t used to all the walking
I know if you could snap both your fingers
Then you’d escape with me
But in the meantime I’ll just wait here
And listen to you when you speak, or scream

And every day that you want to waste
That you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up
That you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change
That you want to change, yeah
I’ll help you see it through
‘Cause I just really want to be with you

The truth cuts us and pulls us back up
And separates the things that look the same
Then you can fight it off, you can fight it off, you can

And every day that you want to waste
That you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up
That you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change
That you want to change, yeah
I’ll help you see it through
‘Cause I just really want to be with you

Thanks!
