Listen to the podcast

My supporting friend asked her questions on our private forums. I asked her if I could do a podcast on her questions, which she granted. I hope this small offering will stir many believers to use their unique gifts to impact the culture. We also had another forum requester asking about starting a podcast. He, too, wants to step up his missional activities.
You inspire action, and I’m thankful for the position the Lord has placed you in—your discernment of the times we’re living in is encouraging. I want to build the kingdom with whatever capacity the Lord gives me, and I also want to partner with other believers. I appreciate your work with Daniel Berger—another asset to the kingdom that helps people see and discern.
I have no idea what this could look like, but I said to my husband the other night, “I wish we could invite them to come for the day to just talk with them.” You two are very like-minded, and I’m a connector. Thank you for taking the time to interact with me on this forum post. I did pretty well at the start of this thread, but brevity is not my specialty, as is shown toward the end. —Supporting Friend
At this point, as one who is mostly at the ground level, where should I invest the most time to make the most significant impact—audio, video, writing?
None of this seems feasible to me without a team. I am not a techie, nor do I have time to mess around with it during this life season. I want to be able to do what I do best and delegate a few things.
So this is the point at which my biggest hang-up comes. I’ve taken steps in the past to make cover art, choose a name, find music, etc., for a podcast, but I stop short.
How long does the production of a podcast episode take you—from thoughts to notes, to recording, to editing?
The sequence is thoughts, reflection, prayer, rough draft, a final draft, and then the podcast. There is also the formatting of an article, finding the right picture, the correct title, inserting embedded links, setting up the SEO, and embedding banners.
Do you edit it yourself?
Regarding videos, how high-tech is your process?
The main thing you need is the passion with a goal in mind. It’s the same for anything you want to do. E.g., the Mastermind students who finish our course typically have a passion (desire) and a purpose (goal) in mind. If you have passion, a sense of urgency, and a good work ethic, you’ll be fine. You need reps. Of course, you need content—something to say, which all Christians should have something to say.
Our most vital need is for financial supporters. If you can help us, will you? We are doing more, and people are asking for more. To keep up, we must hire more while developing the resources to meet the demand.
