First, the question of the magnitude of 10,000. Compared to Charlie Rose viewers, and compared to the big NPR shows, yes, it’s probably very niche. But relative to the one-hour no-frills long-form interview podcasts put on by a 25(?) year old with no promotional resources other than himself, it’s quite sizeable, I’d say. Not unachievable – especially given the quality of what you do – but sizeable.

Also, I wonder if from hearing of audiences in the millions, or just from observing Twitter follower counts, you have a skewed perception of how large of a number 10,000 is. You couldn’t come close to naming from memory 10,000 people that exist or have existed. If you don’t believe me, try it.

I’ll add that I think the 10,000-or-bust drive is a bold and supremely interesting move, and I want to help you achieve it. But there’s also a part of me that wants to see what you’d do next, even if it means moving to a fortified compound in Wyoming and cranking out webisodes about jeggings.

good mult...love it fror childhood )))
