Ep.2 - Panoply Abandons Ship on Content Creation

Join Tim Brien and Kyle Bondo talk about the wreckage left from Panoply abandoning ship on content creation and learn how iHeartRadio plans to innovate their podcast chops through acquisition.

Episode at a Glance:

  • We talk about how the word "panoply" is impossible to say and mispronounce it about 50 times
  • We explore why Panoply -- the company -- fired all their podcast staff
  • We come up with some conspiracy theories of how and why Malcolm Gladwell is leaving Panoply
  • We give our perspectives on what we think the iHeartRadio acquisition of Stuff Media means

What did we learn?

  • Don't let something get too big that if it were to end or walk away it would destroy your entire podcast
  • Know what your weaknesses are so that you can work on getting them stronger
  • Learn from Malcome Gladwell and brand yourself as a content creator (e.g. books, podcasts, talks)
  • Diversify by not letting yourself become one-dimensional by only focusing on one thing (e.g. books, podcasts, talks)
