I'm getting a little down with podcasting. I listen to podcasts, I like podcasts, I've been approached to host a podcast. I think podcasts are an awesome idea. I just don't know how to approach the genre.

I was looking at the top list of podcasts as categorized by Apple and I noticed a trend. The vast majority of the most popular podcasts are about making stuff, making stuff efficiently, and then coping with the emotional drain of making stuff.

If I were to host a podcast it wouldn't be about making stuff. It definitely wouldn't be about coping with life. It certainly wouldn't be about religion as an emotional snuggy. But this seems to be what people like to listen to today.

This problem isn't an easy one to solve.
