    I don’t believe I said that all podcasters are passionates, not experts. Andrea and I () don’t think of ourselves as experts and don’t present ourselves as such. We are wildly passionate about what we do — we share our passion and opinions.

    There are some people in this space that clearly are experts (at least in my opinion). There is room for everyone. Just, be sure you present yourself honestly and transparently.

    Perhaps another approach is to harness your passion and let others decide.

    Really enjoyed #pcmtl myself. Good “vibe.” A sense of community. A nurturing environment.
