200. Three Reasons The Trucking Podcast Lasted This Long

I hate to admit this, but The Trucking Podcast was almost an accident. I’d entered the wonderful world of podcasters long before this show came around. I’d also dabbled in launching a few other sites. After making the decision to either find a co-host or give up podcasting completely, my castle curator came up with an idea. She asked “why don’t you and Don do something?” Don and I ran with it.

Why The Trucking Podcast?

  1. I already owned the domain name. That’s right. I originally bought the name to help draw attention to a few of my favorite podcasts about trucking. This pretty much forced me to the daunting task of listening to all the podcasts on the subject, good or bad. Needless to say, I soon lost interest in the project.
  2. We both drive trucks for a living. I’d been trucking for years. Don had just been at it a year or two with a local beer route.
  3. There are about 3.5 million truck drivers in the USA. If we could draw just one percent, we’d rock. Okay, so I was a little naive on this one.

All I can say is we’re still here, and we’re both still trucking. As a father, I can’t begin to put into words what it means to do this with my son. Yes, we’ve talked about killing the show a few times. We even have a few ideas of what to do next. But The Trucking Podcast is still here after 200 episodes.
