Finding My Voice How the Beach Led Me to Podcasting

Imagine you’re about to do what might be the craziest thing you’ve ever done. You’re thinking this could be crazy good or crazy stupid. Then the “what ifs” start to creep into your consciousness: “What if something goes wrong?” “What if I’m not good enough?” “What if it turns out to be nothing but a waste of time and money?” That’s how I felt three years ago, staring bleary-eyed at my computer monitor, my hand nervously resting on the mouse, guiding a bold black arrow across the screen, stopping to hover over a bright green button that says “publish.” I spent at least 100 hours working on this podcast and my brain ached. My heart was pounding. This might be the craziest thing I’ve ever done. Just a simple click of a button and I’ll be taking a deep dive into the vast ocean of podcasts. Will I sink - or swim? It’s a new year, and I’ve been thinking a lot about this podcast and how it came to be - how what seemed like a crazy thing to do at the time turned out to be something more than just recording my voice and sending it out into the ether. It’s actually helped shape how I use my voice. More than that, it’s helped me trust my voice. To trust what I have to say is something you want to hear. The beach is speaking.
