I was reading an article where West Word was interviewing Dana Gould (Who I find hilarious) and they asked him he still does his podcast (the Dana Gould Hour) while now running/writing the show Stan Against Evil. Here is what Dana said, "I cite the podcast as the things that literally made everything else possible. It keeps my name out there and connects my audience. I think the reason that I’m still allowed to work in clubs is because my podcast has nurtured and cultivated my fan base to the point that people show up. Because if people don’t show up, you don’t get hired. And I think the podcast is very much responsible for that. The podcast averages about 100,000 downloads a month, and, you know, I think a lot of those people watched Stan Against Evil because I talked about it on the podcast. I think that’s why Stan started out with such good numbers. It’s like the nuclear rod that powers everything else." - Full article Dana Gould Hour on iTunes Dana Gould Hour on Stitcher Dana has been making me laugh since 1992 https://youtu.be/b7N08PX27CE

John Dennis started his podcast Smart Time Online. Little did he know that by putting his best advice into audio form, it would gain so much interest. He would get past gate keepers and end up getting contracts with BIG companies. The problem then became continuing his podcast. As John puts it, "Because of my podcast I had to quit my podcast to take care of my customers." It still brings him leads and potential customers even though he hasn't put out an episode in a while.
He is also the moderator of the Podcaster's hangout Facebook group (the largest Facebook Group Devoted to Podcasting)

This podcast was recorded partly at Podcast Movement a few years ago (2014?).
A few years ago Major League Baseball shut down a bunch of podcasts who were using logos illegally, using the name of the teams illegally, but one of them was NOT Corey Fineran. He had named his show Ivy Envy. It was a show about the Chicago cubs. Then one day he got a direct tweet from the official Chicago Cubs team. He thought the team was coming down to shut down his podcast.
So Corey called the front office, and they mentioned that hey had heard his podcast, and read his blog where he had criticized a certain contest the Cubs were running. The Cubs representative explained how it wasn't' a Cubs rule, but one from the Major League baseball. But because of Corey of the Ivy Envy podcast, the Cubs lawyers had taken Corey's points and gone to Major League Baseball, and in turn they changed the rules.
Your podcast can put you into a position of influence. You never know who is listening to your show. It just might be the head of a baseball team.
