If you pay close attention to the podcast you’ll know that there wasn’t an episode this week.  This decision was spurred by a few reasons. I believe the podcast needs to come out at the same time every week so people know when they can tune in.  I work hard to be very consistent with my posting.  Last week, I was feeling called to add in some information about collagen, a ‘beauty protein’ that’s having its moment on the internet.  As always, I want to present the information in the easiest way so you can take some knowledge away from the episode. I just wasn’t finished with the episode and didn’t want to put up something I wasn’t 100% happy with.

In the past I would have stayed up until all hours editing, feeling frustrated and tired.  Now I’ve come to a place where I know people won’t forget about Live Planted, they can wait another week for a quality episode. (If you notice I’ve been working to increase the quality and editing every week.) Also, I was so busy moving forward on what ‘needs to happen’ to get the episode out, that I totally almost missed the fact that this was going to be the 50th episode.  Doh! We’re now having a slight re-arrange to bring out the ’50th Episode Extravaganza’ this week.

Why am I telling you all of this behind the scenes stuff?  A. I think behind the scenes info is interesting, hearing about all the hard work and time that goes into each episode makes it more valuable and you feel like you’re more a part of the process.  Plus it’s kind of interesting to hear that I totally almost biffed on the 50th episode! And B. becasue I am so thankful for you guys, you loyal listeners and you one time listeners.  One of the reasons I felt comfortable skipping an episode is becasue I know that you guys are enjoying the episodes. You guys are listening right at 7am when I make the episodes live, you guys are writing me emails that you love the practical approach. I felt confident that we’ve developed enough of a rapport that you’ll come back next week. So thank you guys for coming back again and again to hear what I have to say each week in the podcast. It really means the world.
