The Worst Way To Start Your Episodes


I found a show name Speak Up Story Telling by Matthew Dicks. I love it.

Do you know what I did? I downloaded all of his episodes (64 at the moment) and consumed them all.

However, some of these are from a long time ago. In case he started off with a mild (I exaggerate apologies in this episode) apology.

I had just listened to his episode, and the next one starts and here is Matthew apologizing for not putting out a show last week.

That doesn't apply to me. I just heard your episode two minutes ago. There is no need for an apology.

But You Feel Bad About it

I know, I know you feel bad. That's really a good thing. You want to care about your audience.

However, if you think about it your TRUE fans will listen to the end of the show. For me, THAT is the best place (the end of the show) for an apology.

It's not a good first impression for anyone listening in the future.
