Thank You Podcast Listeners – and a Short Break

Thank you to all my listeners and guests in 2017!

I had no idea what to expect when I started this Podcast earlier this year.  It has been more work than I imagined but also more rewarding than I ever thought it would be.  Special thanks to Tom Bartel who was my first guest.  I have certainly learned a lot about interviewing, audio gear, post-processing and podcast publishing since that first episode.  (I would be happy to share any advice with anyone just starting out – just reach out to me).

I managed to publish 26 weekly episodes with amazing engineering leaders this year and the number of listeners has grown rapidly every single week.  I am super excited for the SimpleLeadership Podcast in 2018.  I am going to continue to interview amazing guests and I am also looking to expand the format in creative ways.  Stay tuned for “live” podcasts and some lightening podcasts from tech events during the year.

I will be taking a two week break from podcasting during the holiday season and will return January 8th with new episodes.

This is a great opportunity for new listeners to catch-up on some of my existing episodes.  See below for the full list:
