In the second part of my interview with Drekken Pownz, we look at why there may be more gay people than the stats say, what it’s like living life having to hide who you are, and why X-Men is the perfect analogy for society’s view on homosexuality. Check it out!
“Be kind to yourself,
Be true to yourself,
And always move forward.”
— Drekken Pownz, Chatting with Casey, Episode Seven: “SEE Each Other.”
When my friend Marie Nicola heard I was doing my podcast, she congratulated me on putting something together with such high production value but thought me nuts to do it without the help of a producer.
And she was right. She’d know—having run The Nat & Marie Show with Nat Atubanos for years—that podcasting’s quite the fickle friend.
You need to be in the groove—people can spot uninspired drivel a mile away, and if your heart’s not in it, it’s probably not worth posting. You need the time and space to record because no one wants to listen to a podcast with an unnecessary background soundtrack. The mechanics of podcasting aren’t hard in themselves—anyone can hit record on a mic and post the audio online—but to make a podcast worth listening to is another matter entirely.
