We're Moving To 5by5!

When I started podcasting, I set out to emulate those I admired. I began learning everything I could from podcasters like Leo Laporte and Dan Benjamin. I didn’t know where it would lead me, but I immediately connected with the medium. I enjoyed doing it and kept looking for ways to do more.

As time went on and my skills grew, I knew that I wanted to make a career out of creating fine audio programming. I started this podcasting network with my friend and former Bro Show co-host, Mr. Terry Lucy. Since then, I have worked tirelessly with other amazing hosts to build 70Decibels to where it is today.

As the network continues to grow, our ambitions grow with it. Our hosts put out shows that deserve a larger audience, and my dream of a career in podcasting is within reach. To get to the next level, we need help. We need a better infrastructure and even more great people to support the network we have created. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce that 70Decibels is going to be moving to the 5by5 Podcasting Network.

Our shows deserve a solid platform to continue to grow. In my mind, there is no better place for this than 5by5 and no better person than Dan Benjamin to help us continue moving forward. When he first reached out to gauge our interest in joining his network, I was floored. As I said, Dan is a hero of mine, and I was honoured to have our network considered to join 5by5. As we continued to talk, and as I spoke with the other hosts, it was clear that this was the right opportunity for us.


So What’s Next?

All of the shows that you love are moving over to 5by5 so they can have a shiny new home, and so I and the other 70Decibels hosts can focus on what we love: creating great conversations.

The move will allow me to shake off the pressures that come with running a podcast network, while freeing me up to create some of the new shows that I’ve been dreaming about.

70Decibels is nearly 18 months old. It’s amazing what has happened in that time and we all know that we owe it all to you, the listeners. Without you tuning in every week, getting involved, asking questions, promoting us and letting us know when we fall short, we wouldn’t be here. I just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for everything you’ve done to get us to this point. All of us at the network cannot wait to share what comes next. Thank you all so much.

If you have any questions or comments about the move, please Tweet or email me. I’ll be happy to help in any way that I can. Make sure you tune in to the shows and follow me on Twitter to find out more about what’s coming next.


Big week, you guys. Huge week!

You can hear me and Dan talk about this on Episode 33 of CMD+SPACE

Does this mean that you'll be able to pursue podcasting full-time?

I'm the guy who's always surprised by the twist ending in a movie.

But this one? This one I've seen coming for a long time, because it makes so much sense.

Best of luck to everyone at 70db and 5x5. Looking forward to even more greatness going forward!

I guess this means the Austin office will be contractually obligated to keep a healthy supply of Earl Grey in the company break room.
