I Didn't Kill Myself and I Got a TV Show

I was listening to Kevin Smith's Keynote address at Podcast Movement 2016 and he shared the story about how his friend Bryan Johnson was ready to kill himself. Kevin told him to start a podcast, and even though he didn't really want to he did. It gave him purpose. That podcasttellem-dave-steve made Bryan feel great as he got feedback from his audience. This podcast later turned into the TV Show Comic Book Men. Another story Kevin related was of his friend Jason Mewes who Kevin had cut out of his life due to him being addicted to Heroin. Kevin talked Jason into doing a podcast called "Jay and Silent Bob Get Old" and the first few episodes Jason shared about his addiction and the podcast was focused on keeping him sober. So today "Because of my podcast I didn't kill myself and I got a TV show. Ready to start a podcast? go to http://www.schoolofpodcasting.com
