In this episode, we celebrate 2 and 1/2 years of interesting conversations via the Beyond Bossfights show. I review episodes 1-26, and we catch up with former guests using some pre-recorded snippets. Thanks for listening for the past 2 1/2 years, Bossfighters!
It took me a long time to say that on this blog. Not because I’m ashamed of the fact, nor that I’m unsure of it, but because I was worried about being perceived as something I’m not. Afraid of being improperly categorized due to someone’s preconceived notions of what that label means. And let’s not pretend that it doesn’t happen. Simply by saying the word “Christian” I’ve placed a picture in your mind of someone, or an idea of someone, based on your past experiences or education. Same as if I were to say “Cowboy” or “Blue Collar” or “Politician”. Those words carry with them pictures, attitudes, and the temptation to reach down into the toolbox, pull out the broad brush, and paint an entire landscape of individuals with the same color. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s how the human brain makes sense of the world. The problem is, even within our own specific category, we’re not all the same, are we? There are some Cowboys that even other Cowboys, true Cowboys, don’t want to be associated with. Like Roy Rogers.
In this episode, I’ve got Brian and Roger formerly of the Contains Moderate Peril and Burton and Scrooge podcasts. We touch on many podcast and content creation-centered subjects, such as relating to your audience, the importance of a good co-host dynamic, and situations that might lead someone to finally call it quits.
