Out with the Old, In with the New: The Evolution of the Independent Creator Podcast

The host of the Independent Creator Podcast discusses upcoming changes to the show's format and schedule. Episodes will now start promptly after a five-minute countdown, eliminating the pre-show segment. The host plans to integrate audience interaction during the live stream rather than at the end, and there will no longer be a post-show Q&A as it will be part of the main episode.

Episodes will be shorter, aiming for about an hour, and will be released bi-weekly instead of weekly. The release schedule for audio versions will be the Wednesday following the live stream. The host also mentions technical issues with new Mac OS features and reflects on the use of certain Apple functionalities like Memojis.

A significant change is the shift from weekly to bi-weekly episodes to allow for more in-depth content creation. The host wants to focus on alternative platforms and forum software, sharing his expertise in these areas. There are plans to include interviews with individuals involved in independent and alternative platform spaces, though these will be special events due to time zone challenges.

The podcast will continue to evolve, with the host emphasizing the importance of enjoying the creative process. He also shares his decision to leave X Twitter and focus on other social platforms like Mastodon and Blue Sky. Lastly, the host encourages listeners to join their community forum at thisindiecreator.com, which focuses on content creators and indie game developers.
