Episode #128 with Tyler King broke the 5M cumulative download mark for the IH podcast today, which is fitting, because Tyler's episode was one of the best I've recorded in a while!
The IH podcast has been going strong since mid-February 2017. I never imagined it would get more than a few hundred downloads a day, and now it's averaging over 10,000:
Whenever I analyze the podcast and what makes it grow, the two things that always stand out are quality and consistency. The podcast does well when I'm regularly putting out great episodes, and it stagnates when I'm inconsistent or the episodes are mediocre.
Shocking, I know.
My plan at this point is to keep the podcast going exactly the same way it has been for the past few months, where I'm spending lots of time trying to hunt down good guests and ask them solid questions, and I'm releasing an additional "quick chat" episode every Friday.
It's been super fun to invite guests on who've been posting top milestones, and I'm looking forward to the day where I can find 100% of my podcast guests from the Indie Hackers community itself. ✌️
