For Episode 12, I had a fascinating chat with Simon Whistler, host of The Rocking Self-Publishing Podcast and author of Audiobooks for Indies. We talk about Simon's career as an audio book narrator, his experience with the podcast (which has 74 episodes at the time of recording), and publishing in general. Some takeaways: Simon suggests I perform my own memoir for audiobook, but not fiction. You can break script in an audiobook and you don't have to include everything Simon's show notes are great (which made feel inadequate as I was writing these, so I expanded them to put in this "takeaways" section.) Indy authors (and podcasters) tend to be cooperative more than competitive People who succeed work hard (sounds obvious, but worth repeating) Multiple sources of income is the way to go. Having a job is risky. Location independence is one great benefit of working independently. Podcasting is a great way to make connections. In Prague, Simon can choose between 8 different Internet Providers and has a 120Mb/s connection for $20!!! Nonfiction e-books don't have to be terribly long. If you have books out, audio books are "money on the table," another possible revenue stream for your book.

In this solocast, I talk mainly about teaching and how getting outside of my comfort zone has helped invigorate me. ]]>
This episode is a little experimental in that I read a little and ad-lib a little, but I didn't go back and edit, so you get the raw recording, with all the ums and uhs and asides. Tell me if you like it or not. I talk about the play I was in this Spring as well as some thoughts about how technology has finally caught up to us creative types and now allows us to do many things we had always wanted to do but didn't have the means.
Today I talk about whether academics should consider self-publishing, and I read another excuse from the List of Excuses: "But I'm not inspired." The List of Excuses is a series I am developing for my email list. So far there are about a dozen of them, and if you'd like in, join my email list. In this episode, I talk about a Neil Gaiman commencement speech that I like, which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikAb-NYkseI I mention that he talks about inspiration in this video, but he doesn't do so as directly as I thought. It's still a great watch, though, and I recommend it. Here's a link to a more direct quote from him about inspiration: http://www.brainpickings.org/2013/09/11/neil-gaiman-advice-to-writers/ If you’re only going to write when you’re inspired, you may be a fairly decent poet, but you will never be a novelist — because you’re going to have to make your word count today, and those words aren’t going to wait for you, whether you’re inspired or not. So you have to write when you’re not “inspired.” … And the weird thing is that six months later, or a year later, you’re going to look back and you’re not going to remember which scenes you wrote when you were inspired and which scenes you wrote because they had to be written. ———————— Subcsribe to the WET Podcast in iTunes | Main page for The WET Podcast You can follow me at @emarsh.

In this Solocast, Erik Marshall talks about side hustles, or diversification of income for academics and writers. In many cases, one income is not enough, and having only one source of income ties you to a the whims of a particular career, which can be a dangerous situation. In the case of adjuncts, if all you have is an adjunct position, then you're entire wellbeing can be decided by one person, or by the vagaries of student enrollment, politics, prejudice or any number of things that are outside of your control. I talk about my side hustles, tutoring and writing, and how I want to build writing into a stronger source of income. This diversification gives me the power to say "No" to potential obligations that I might have said "yes" to in the past.

I reflect on my attempt to build a pirate radio station in my teenage years. The drive for independence and the desire to be heard converged in a rebellion against corporate radio.
