I did something today that I have never done in my 12 years of podcasting. I deleted source files before a podcast was published.
I was embarrassed, felt unprofessional and felt like crap afterward. My client, however, totally was cool about it and I really think the episode wasn’t what she wanted it to be, anyway. We will rerecord it and she won’t be charged for it. What made me feel the worst, though was it was her first ever podcast. At least her feet were “wet” and she had that first one out of the way.
But, I think my record of 12 years and no mistakes like this is pretty good. Still, that one time it happens, you still feel sick about it. Well, I’ve gone on long enough.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
