General Podcast Discussion  - 
 
I'm currently developing an audio series on business design and design thinking. The series will be educational with a set number of episodes, meaning once I hit the last one (say #15) it's done. I'm making it as a learning resource to help business people get up to speed on the topic.

My question is, should I treat this like a podcast and publish and distribute it the same way? Should I submit it to iTunes, etc? Or, is there a different, more appropriate approach to getting it out there?

Of course, I want to get the best visibility possible for the content, but I don't want to set an expectation for my audience that this is an ongoing podcast when in reality it's not. What would you do with audio continent like what I'm describing?

+Brad Farris, thanks for referencing New Rainmaker. That's a great point. I listened to that series when Brian was producing it and was aware from the beginning that it was going to end. Big help--thanks!

Thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a new rider with a 2014 Bonneville T100. I just got the bike on Monday and have about 450 miles on it. I live in western NY and can't wait to do some autumn riding!

I'm glad to find this group and look forward to getting to know you.

Very sad, indeed. Tito was a champion, a kind leader and a gentleman. I am grateful for his example and for what he gave the fans.

Sometimes business success is about ignoring lots of opportunities and focusing on the one right in front of you.

Carpenters know you need a hammer to drive nails. But carpentry, unlike marketing, has had a few thousand years to sort out the best tool for the job at hand.

Old School ASCII. No. I'm talking really old school.

Yahoo! may be struggling to run a decent business, but at least we now know they're good at the bevel filter in Photoshop. It's important to be good at something.

"Kids need adults."

For sure, Brandt.
The problem, this time, is that our society feels like it knows her, knows her backstory, knows she's someone's daughter, and isn't able to forget it. Other women, like the ones on stage with Miley, the ones no one is complaining about? Well, we can sexualize them, reduce them to toys lacking a story, but this girl? We know her dad!
