Over the last 30 days of my 31 day challenge to produce and publish a podcast every day, I really started thinking about the term “challenge,” and how it pertains to podcast challenges. And it’s various meanings…
1 : an objection to something as not being true, genuine, correct, or proper or to a person (as a juror) as not being correct, qualified, or approved.
2 : a call or dare for someone to compete in a contest or sport.
3 : a difficult task or problem.
What are some of your challenges with podcasting? I took a look at some podcasting Facebook groups to get a look at what their challenges are for the next 30 days…
