The Fellowship of the Podfader
The Nine Steps Back to Podcasting was devised by listening and understanding what causes a podcaster to podfade. By taking each step one at a time, a podcaster can begin to make positive decisions about their podfading (steps 1-3), take direct action to change, improve, and return to podcasting (steps 4-6), and then continue to grow their podcasting skills over time (steps 7-9).
