Show Notes

One December evening in 2019, Chris Stedman noticed a new message in his inbox from his friend Alex, sent at exactly 7 p.m. He and Alex hadn’t talked in a while—was Alex writing to tell him off for being a bad friend? But it wasn’t that. “listen,” the note read. “i am writing to let you know that when you receive this scheduled email, i will no longer be alive.”

Welcome to Unread, a podcast from iHeart that has landed on many best-of-2021 lists while striking a deep chord with its audience.

Inside today’s episode, Jay speaks with Chris Stedman, creator and writer of Unread, a show with a unique approach toward mental health and cultural icons. Chris breaks down the process of conceptualizing an intimately personal project with a team, and how podcasting differs from the written word.

Chris Stedman is a Minneapolis-based writer, speaker, and professor who currently teaches in the Department of Religion and Philosophy at Augsburg University. He is the author of IRL and Faitheist, and Unread is his first podcast.

Making a Living in Podcasting (ft. Kinsey Grant and Josh Kaplan of Thinking is Cool)

3 Clips is a show about the craft of podcasting, and the passion behind that craft. But how do we translate that passion into income? On this special episode, business partners Kinsey Grant and Josh Kaplan help us answer this question. Kinsey is the host of Thinking is Cool, where she takes listeners deep into the key topics affecting their work and lives, to encourage us all to stop and think more critically about the nuances inside those ideas. She covers topics like drugs and why we do them, billionaires and whether they should exist, the concept of the girl boss, and the political system in the US and how we might fix it. Kinsey is also the Chief Content Officer of the startup that she co-founded, Smooth Operations and Creator Services, aka Smooth Ops. Josh Kaplan is the co-founder of Thinking is Cool and co-founder and CEO of Smooth Ops. He runs the business back end for Thinking is Cool, and works on revenue generating projects for independent creators, many of whom are podcasters too. In this episode of 3 Clips, Josh, Kinsey and Jay talk working relationships, going indie, the role of a journalist/host in podcast advertising, and more.  EXPLORE THE SHOW Visit 3clipspodcast.com for all episodes of the show.  LEARN MORE ABOUT 3 CLIPS HOST JAY ACUNZO Subscribe to his newsletter, explore his course for podcasters, or watch and listen to all of Jay’s shows and projects at jayacunzo.com  LEARN MORE ABOUT CASTOS 3 Clips is a Castos Original Series.
