I’ve been doing a podcast for a little over a year and a video to accompany the podcast for a little over a half year. Just now, I hit some pretty cool milestones.

The podcast just rolled its odometer past the 100,000 listen mark. (Although, the system recorded listens differently for a month and created another category which no longer exists. If they rolled them all into one counter, I’d be at 107K right now but you’ll just have to take my word on that.)

My videos also just rolled past the 70,000 view mark which is pretty cool, considering that was done in less than half the time as the podcast. Youtube is also cool in another way: Some videos get promoted due to their content and end up with an unusually large number of views. My #1 video (“Don’t Buy An RV!”) now has more than 20,000 views.

I’ve also gotten some fun contacts along the way. I currently do a once-a-month gig on a radio show in Australia (I kid you not) and also just started a weekly gig in Flint, Michigan. I’ll post more on that later.


Meanwhile, I am working on the ultimate podcast. I am trying to work into a single headline the following topics: Mechanics who rip people off, Craigslist scams, Salvage vehicles, Insurance denials, and auto auctions. Those are the things that get the most people pissed off at me and I figure I could cause the world to implode if I could get them all into one headline. Feel free to throw rough ideas into the comments.

And the pic at the top? Not sure, but I bet it “Ran when parked.”
