Today on Podcasting Stories, we're talking with Chris Kolkhorst.
Chris, you may remember, was a guest on the show back in episode 008 when he was thinking about starting a podcast, and at the time, we talked about his background and what he hoped to achieve from starting a show. Well, he ended up launching a podcast with our help, and now, 6 months later, we check back in to see how his podcast 'The Gritmen Show' is going.
We had a great conversation about why he launched the podcast, what he really enjoys about having a podcast, and of course, the lessons learned and what he'd do differently.
If you've ever considered having your own podcast, this is a great episode to get a perspective of somebody who had the same thought and who went on to execute that idea.

He's interested in having two different podcasts, one for his current insurance business and another for his passion project called, The Gritman Club.
We used the Podcast Scorecard to look for opportunities, and he scored 80 out of 96, a pretty high score and an indication that he's a great fit for a podcast. We drilled deeper into some of the scorecard questions and explored some different ways he can make the most of a podcast.
