Episode 1 – Joel starts a pod

Welcome to the first episode of The Joel vs Arthritis Podcast - Joel starts a pod! In this introduction to the podcast, I talk about why I have taken this step.

Merry Christmas – have a podcast!

I have always wanted to try podcasting but after a bad experience with YouTube earlier in the year, where frankly the learning curve was vast and editing extremely time-consuming, I wrongly bundled podcasts into the same bracket.

Thanks to some lovely people on Twitter, the inability to sleep last night and the frustrating fact that I can’t always type at times I’m free to create content – The Joel vs Arthritis Podcast was born!

The first episode is purely an introduction – to give me time to get up to speed and for me to have something to submit to Spotify, iTunes and all your other favourite podcast platforms. Over the coming weeks, there will be more formal episodes, guests and artwork, so it’s all official. But for now, enjoy Episode 1, subscribe (when it becomes available on your platform of choice) and please like, share and leave reviews. It makes a huge difference to the success of future episodes.

I’d love to hear your feedback, suggestions for future episodes and let me know if it’s not available somewhere you listen to podcasts so that I can fill in the gaps.

Thanks for all of the support!

  1. All the best for your new endeavour! I really feel like I’m missing out with podcasts. Obviously I would need transcripts but I don’t know which platform is best. Any suggestions would be appreciated 🙂

    1. Thank you Ami 🙂 Hope you and baby are well? I’m hosting it all off my own site, submitted it to platforms like Apple and Google myself. Happy to talk you through how you can do it for free after Christmas?

      1. We are getting there thanks 😊 6 weeks old aready! Yes please that would be great thanks 😊
