smilingdad is now on Spotify as a podcast

This is my first blog post intended to be heard as a podcast. On Sunday, Pi Day, I used to convert my most recent blog posts into Spotify podcasts. Every post from now on will get the same treatment. Some of us do better reading the material, others need to be immersed in audio, and some will benefit from both. My hope is by broadening how this blog is consumed, we reach a wider audience. Forgive me while we test out different podcast patterns. We are on this ride together.

If you told my high school English teachers that I would have a blog, write on two websites, have a podcast, and communicate for a living, they would be mortified, then proud how I redeemed myself. One high school teacher requested I buy a computer to help write my papers. My handwriting and English was that bad. I’ve come a long way.

The link to the podcast is:

As you can imagine, personal finance is made easier by charts, tables, and pictures. I will do my best to convert these blog images into words that make sense. I plan to go through each podcast, critically condemn myself, re-do the underlying blog, and read the post in my own voice. From time to time, my youngest will speak the posts she dictates to me. At the moment, there are 22 blogs and 2 hours of audio. That’s stunning to me, because it sure took a lot longer than 2 hours to put together.

Thanks to my WordPress readers for their initial and continuing support, and thanks to my new Spotify listeners for taking a chance on my podcast.

Sign up for when we publish our next post.

Thanks for reading!

Warmest regards,
