Radio Show on Pause

Radio Show on PauseHowdy folks! As most of you know, since January 2011, I’ve had a weekly radio show on Ayurveda. If you didn’t know that, you must have a listen! We had great fun with live questions from our listeners as we all had a great time learning. As you also know in June I had a baby and my shows have only been live a couple times since then. Now, with going back to work a couple weeks ago and then coming home to be a mom (well, I guess I’m a mom even when I’m at work, but you know what I mean) it’s been really hard to get in a new radio show each week.

So, here’s a fun story. Last week I was emailing with the network owner, Vaishali, and I told her it might be too ambitious of me to continue on with the show. She totally understood with grace as I told her I would probably not renew my radio spot in 2012. I was thankful she was so supportive, but I still thought “Holy smokies. How am I going to finish out this year’s shows with a new job and a new baby? And still blog! And still do consultations. And keep my sanity. Aiiieeeee!”

Then. Get THIS. Yesterday Vaishali called me and said there was a billing error and that our whole network was going to be ending on Nov. 1. Um! Wow. Apparently Blog Talk Radio started the clock on our 12 month payment when we payed initially last November and not in January (such as we thought). How about that for timing, hey?! While I will really miss the show, I am also relieved to have a little pause. I always say how it’s not good to be too too busy because creativity cannot grow when there is no space for it. I feel like now, I have some space. And I can feel good about practicing what I preach.

THAT said…you can’t get rid of me that easy! Mwaahaahaaa (evil laugh). I will be putting together some podcasts instead. I’m not sure of the details yet, but I’ve got plenty of great topics and guests to invite back like Heidi the Professional Coach, Kimberly the yogi, and Elizabeth skincare expert, before the end of this year! That way you can still get your Ayurvedic radio fix, I can blah blah blah to anyone who wants to listen, and hopefully the world will start to heal. That said, if any of you know how to create a podcast and play it at a specific time so we can all chat on facebook during the show, let me know! I would love any techy advice. Anywho, it’s not an end, it’s just a shift :)

In the meantime, please listen to the archives and share with your friends! Everyone deserves the gift of good health, love and laughter. I whole-heartedly think that my radio show was filled with all of those things. I will let you know as soon as I have a podplan. xoxo!

    Glad u r finding focus. I feel like so many moms try and do too much. Aft a year of being a working mom and trying to finish my certificate for a new career, I decided to stay home and focus on the baby and the career change instead. And I am happy I did. Happy it all worked out for u.

      Thanks Babita! It’s challenging juggling everything, but I am blessed to have an abundance of great things in my life. I’m hoping that it will smooth out a little though – so busy! xo

    We have been running a podcast on iTunes for two years. We use a service called PodBean to upload and store our episodes. They have plans available where you can schedule a show in advance to run at a certain time and date.

    I hope that helps, you are welcome to contact me if this is the kind of thing you are looking for and you need to know more.

    Thank you for the creative and accessible way you share Ayurvedic wisdom.

      OH yay Ananga, I will definitely check that out. Maybe it’s a sign because I call my baby “bean.” ;) I will let you know if I have questions – I really appreciate the suggestion!! And, I thank you for reading and being open to Ayurveda! Big hug.
