The Most Popular Writing and Self-Publishing Podcast Episodes of Season One of The Authorpreneur Podcast
In celebration of the start of season two, I’m taking a look back at the most popular podcast episodes from season one with help from the Blubrry Statistics dashboard. The episodes in this roundup style post are included purely based on the number of downloads, and complete or partial listens since the podcast was first submitted to iTunes and stitcher back in December 2017.
In this short episode, I will discuss what you can expect from season two of The Authorpreneur Podcast. And, I will also chat with you about an exciting change from this season onwards.

Part of the reason for my indecision was the first half of this year didn’t go as planned. The first six months of 2019 were filled with some distractions, getting back into writing, and the editing process not going the way I had expected.
