My wife, I think, is out of the radio game. Which leaves me with a decision to make about sticking or moving.
This is where I confront my own worst instincts, in that my “go big or go home” mentality works against me. I immediately start imagining the ideal radio show, but I don’t really also imagine the amount of work that goes into making the ideal radio show.
It’s easy to imagine having different guests on every week, figuring out music, having wonderful, convivial conversations, and actually doing something pretty special. But when the rubber hits the road (and when I start working toward my LLM), will I really do that? I’m barely managing to crack along with the Tiniest Gallery, and that’s a pretty low-effort endeavour.
“Do less, well” is a good mantra for me. I tend to do a lot, sloppily.
I guess I’m leaning toward radio show retirement!
