iOS Only, I’m free of Anchor

It’s taken a good few weeks but I’m finally free of the iOS Only Anchor feed. If you search in iTunes or Overcast I’m seeing only my Libsyn feed so all’s good.

I’m currently on a little hiatus whilst this was being planned out but planning my next 5 or so episodes out so I’ll be back up and running by the end of the month.

Reducing my podcast consumption

2019 has already started with too many inputs, technology moves so fast and having a focus on Apple even more so – keeping up is tough so I’ve kind of declared podcast bankruptcy. I follow a lot of blogs (these days more independent writers) and I’m enjoying actually reading them rather than being constantly plugged into a podcast.

I’m not naming any names but some podcast networks also only invite on the same guests, not a lot of diversity in the Apple podcasting world for me to enjoy. There’s only so much attention I can give some people – especially when I’m trying to stay focussed and calm in 2019.

So I’ve paired my podcast listening down to about 5 shows now, the ones that also have a YouTube channel I’ll watch them rather than listen. I’m hoping this will bring some calm into my life and reduce the amount of headspace I’m giving Apple content. I actually find that I enjoy listening/watching to folks talking about comic books and Star Wars a lot more these days, maybe it’s time I started writing more about these subjects…

Here’s to listening to more music, reading more independent writers and getting off the always on news cycle.

An update on iOS Only

I’ve been messing up a bit with iOS Only, the feed has been switching around and I’m inconsistent in posting. Well this year I’m going to be putting more effort into building it and spend less time with long form blog posts. To start this I’ve canned my account with Anchor so the feed will stop working soon.

I’ve created an account with a podcast hosting site and waiting on the feed to be approved by Apple.

You can grab the RSS feed of the podcast here and I’ll post when the podcast is available in iTunes.

I’m busy this weekend but I’ll be planning it and recording weekly from next week.
