Podcasting has become the new normal for most people. And while more people listening to podcasts is an obvious Good Thing, are you sure they’re looking for normality out of your podcast?

Abnormality is not a bad thing. It’s just not normal. Until you normalize it. Here are four different ideas here that might help you embrace a little more abnormality to your podcast.
1. Keep the standards, toss the conventions. Standards and best practices are there for a reason. Conventions, on the other hand, you can play fast and loose with. Or toss out altogether.
You don’t always have to record from your perfectly sound-conditioned studio with your fancy-pants microphone. You don’t have to follow someone else’s playbook to determining how many questions to ask of your guests or how many points you should cover in an episode.
2. Make a meaningful distinction between you and everybody else. Have you really checked every other podcast in your niche? That’s still doable today. And make sure your differentiation is a meaningful differentiation. Things like episode length or guest lists aren’t meaningful distinctions.
3. Forgive your relapses and try harder. You're going to fall back onto old habits as you try to be different. Forgive yourself when that happens. Just go back and try and do better next time.
4. Check yourself and check-in with yourself. The process of making abnormal content should feel unfamiliar to you, but it shouldn’t come with a lot of personal discomforts. But it’s the opposite for your listeners. They should feel a bit uncomfortable with the changes you’re making. But those new episodes shouldn't feel unfamiliar to them.
I know it feels weird to go against the grain. Then again, you should be quite familiar with my offering up of oddball advice like that. If you’re feeling a little uncomfortable about it, I’ve done my job. Your job, now, is to normalize the making of abnormal podcasts…again.
Looking at the calendar, I see that Evo’s long winters nap is coming up. That's what I call the months of November and December when I take a break from the daily release schedule. As a treat, I open up the show to other working podcasts just like you who have their own topics and angles they wish to pontificate about. If you have a burning topic and unique take on something related to the future of podcasting or ways to make podcasting better, please send an email to email@example.com, and we’ll talk about your idea. And I really am looking for your own ideas and opinions. Even if they run counter to my own.
