He shares how he structures things so that the duo can keep producing new shows every week while keeping topics fresh and interesting. The different buckets he cycles through becoming important to fulfilling his content needs as the show progresses (don’t worry, he explains what that means). We cover the different elements that go into each part of the show and how he seamlessly integrates promotional jabs into his content to make sure the listener is aware that they have more content out there without sounding like a slimy salesman. We talk about perseverance, and why you can’t expect to be an overnight success. Brad champions the call to action and embracing imperfection. Incremental improvements are covered and he shares why he thinks working to get better is key to success. Consistency and why it’s important for your listeners got thrown in there as well. Finally, Brad adds a splash of flair by sharing some of his favorite episodes of his show. He teases a few anecdotes from his life that he loves to share, and explains the importance of getting your five-year-olds to do their own laundry.
