The Benefits of having an audio podcast

Recently, I received an email from a listener saying “Hi Jay, I started listening to your podcast a couple of weeks ago; I like it a lot! I am curious as to know how, or why you started podcasting. All of the other podcasters I listen to just say “I want to get my message out, and leave it at that”, but I was wondering if you could go a little more in-depth answer to that question either by just replying or using it as a topic on The Jay Doherty Podcast. This is all out of pure interest and curiosity so please let me know. Best, *******”
