Share Your Work To Make A Better Podcast [Episode 245D]
Almost by definition, podcasters have to be good at sharing. I mean, that's kind of the point. Just like I'm sharing my show with Ma'ayan Plaut. She's RadioPublic’s podcast librarian (of all crazy job titles) and she thinks you, the working podcaster, can share your podcast better. In a nutshell, or at least in the text of an in-app episode description, she wants you to do three things: commit to sharing your show smartly with the world commit to sharing elements of your process so we can better understand your work commit to sharing the load of your work with others Of course, she goes into much greater detail in the audio. And it’s in that audio where she goes into detail about  how to apply SMART goals to your podcast work (not just your show or your episodes the One Shot rule pioneered by Amanda McLoughlin why it’s so important to credit the other people who make your show possible some solid reasons why you need to write more, not just talk more the importance of building your own personal network … and why being more strategic leads to being more efficient Give it a listen. I promise you’ll learn a lot. ----- Share this with a friend: Podcast Pontifications will return in January 2020, published by Evo Terra four times a week and is aimed at the working podcaster.

Ma'ayan Plaut is the podcast librarian at RadioPublic. But she’s not like the typical master of the Dewey Decimal System you know from your local public library. And she just so happens to be the only podcast librarian on the planet. In her three years at the company, Ma’ayan’s role has evolved from being a one-woman army recommending individual podcasts to solving the larger discoverability issues with podcasting.  Sign up for Giftogram with the code: weirdwork

012: Cascading Leftovers Theory! ft. Ma'ayan Plaut
This week, my friend Ma’ayan joins me to discuss her genius meal prep method called Cascading Leftovers Theory, which is inspired by the prep fridges of restaurant kitchens. Basically, it's all about prepping individual building block ingredients early in the week and turning them into different things every day. We talk about how and why she started cooking this way, how it prevents boredom and encourages creativity, what staple ingredients she relies on, the power of sandwiches, seasonings, and immersion blenders, and how going out to brunch can help you try out this method of cooking!
