ep 56: The Hard Stand Monster, Revisited

Episode 56 Cover Art

Episode 56 Cover ArtRelive or experience for the first time that day The Digression Podcast went live as we revisit our first episode…the story of RAF Alconbury’s Hard Stand Monster. This episode kicked off with just a handful of listeners, but it’s now a top Google search result. It’s also our second most downloaded episode. Looking back, it may have started off a little slow, but it quickly picked up as we shed our self-conscious reluctance and just “shot the breeze” as we’d always done.

Leaders never forget where they came from and neither do creators. Every episode was our best effort. In three years we’ve grown as podcasters and continue to improve our craft with an ear toward our listener’s experience. We’ve made some good friends within the industry and have learned a ton from them, and we’ve spoken to some interesting people. But most of all, and this is the most humbling, we continue to gain more and more listeners who engage with the show. People from all around the world give their time to listen to The Digression Podcast and share how they feel about it. They add to the conversation with their praise, their criticism, and their insight. They support the show with their downloads, and on Patreon, and by simply sharing it with friends. We appreciate each and every listener. We may have never met, but we share a common experience, and this is enough to make us friends. Thank you!
