So I’m thinking about making a podcast. It would be, unsurprisingly, about 1) getting smarter, and 2) making stuff. But what it would REALLY be about would be me talking to interesting people about whatever the heck I like.
I used to host The Cognicast when I worked at Cognitect. I did about 120 episodes before I moved on to work at Kevel. It was mostly about Clojure, a programming language, although two of my favorite episodes were about depression and about dyslexia. If I do the Get Smarter and Make Stuff podcast, it would definitely NOT be a programming podcast – that’s way too narrow to encompass the idea of this site – but programming topics would definitely come up from time to time.
I’m not totally sure I’m going to do this, since podcasts are a fair bit of work, and quite frankly I was burned out when I stopped hosting four years ago. But I think perhaps I’ve recovered enough, especially with a concept to organize the new show around that gives me so much freedom to talk to interesting people across a huge range of topics.
Anyway, what do you think? Good idea? Interesting? Would you listen? Leave a comment. I’m especially interested to hear from my Cognicast listeners. Thanks!
