Why is it, that so many people have to see profit in it, before
they'll get involved? It's not like any other podcasts are making
huge piles of money, but there are plenty of music podcasts, tech
podcasts, et multiple cetera.

The number of podcasters that are making a living at it can be counted
on a very small number of hands.

Out of curiosity, how many people here *are* making a living podcasting?

Mignon Fogerty is, I'm pretty sure. The Ninja guys. I've been making a
living from podcasting well over a year now. I'd say Evo, Eley, & van Orden,
but I believe podcasting is only one component in their separate schemes for
global domination.

My understanding of Dawn & Drew is that the bulk of their revenue comes from
merchandising. Not that merchandising from your podcast isn't making a
living from your podcast!

I'm not making a living from podcasting. I'm making some reasonable
side income from it, but the bulk of our donations goes back into
buying content.

That said, I'm convinced a quality sex podcast *can* make money, if
it's marketed well and smart about it. Maybe not "make a living"
money, but enough to make it worthwhile. Midwest Teen Sex Show has
sponsors (and produces some hilarious spots for them), and so does Sex
is Fun. I'm not sure if Dan Savage makes any money for the Savage
Lovecast, but it is an extension of his syndicated column, which is
his full-time job.

I'm fortunate enough to have a "day-job" that pays me well and leaves
me plenty of time to explore new opportunities.

Plus, I'm less interested in making additional money for me and more
for the authors I'm fortunate enough to work with on Podiobooks.com.
Not that I'll turn down cash if you want to hand it to me...

Maybe someday Steve will be willing to make the Furries happy with a
podcast version of The Architect Of Sleep?

I'm more likely to make the world happy by engineering a furry-specific
virus with a 99.99% mortality rate. Furries are the very reason the sumbitch
ain't getting finished in any medium now known or hitherto developed. I hate
them, Sam I Am.

Huh. I take it this is a newer perspective than the essay on your
site implying that you intend to return to it at some point?

(I haven't read _Architect_ yet, BTW, although the Amazon reviews
intrigue me a lot. I just Googled it find out what y'all are talking
about. Glad I did.)

I thought I took that page down. I've learned never to say never, but I have
been saying for years that I am not going to finish it. I wrote it when I
was 24. I'm proud of it. But I never have thought it was my best work; it
was basically a five-finger exercise (that's a joke) in world building
carried to a myopic extreme just to prove I could do it. I ain't that guy no
more. That guy was willing to endure furries for what he wanted to
accomplish (well, that guy had no idea they existed at the time). I have
zero tolerance for squirrelbangers, and as far as Architect is concerned,
they have peed in the pool for everyone.

And here I thought they were a harmless and moderately amusing end of
the geek/kink spectrum -- but then I've never produced any work that
would bring them swarming.

(I was going to end this post with "And there are no furry podcasts!"
as a riff on my earlier line on BDSM podcasts... But I did think to
check Google first and I was wrong. Boy howdy, are there a lot of
furry podcasts.)

Nope, they're mismatched-plaid-wearing, hygienically challenged,
dandruff-carpeted gulp-laughers who show up on your front porch unannounced
or send you demanding emails. I have to say that the difference between my
fan mail as a writer and my fan mail as a podcaster could not be more
prominent. I don't know if this makes any sense, but it makes me sad that,
in terms of audience, I enjoy being a DJ far more than I ever have being a
writer. Probably because I enjoy writing itself more than DJing, and
possibly because I'm a better writer than DJ.

I've taken to forwarding writerly fanmail to close friends, because, as the
General once said on Roger Ramjet, it "always ceases to amaze me."

Yes, it is. And entirely warranted. And before you go judging me for it,
consider that these chancre-lickers have dogged me for 25 years, which I
doubt is on a par with your experience of them.
