'Twas The Night Before Podcasting



'Twas the night before podcasting, when all through the net,

Not a speaker was silent, no microphone set.


The headphones were hung by the mixer with care,

In hopes that good listeners soon would be there.


The creators were nestled all snug in their chairs, While visions of interviews danced on the airs.


And hosts with their scripts, and I with my cast, Had just settled in for a long editing task.


When out on the web there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter.


Away to the browser, I flew like a flash, Opened the app, and prepared for a splash.


The moon on the breast of the new-fallen show Gave the luster of midday to objects below, When, what to my wondering ears should appear, But a trending podcast, gaining listeners near.


With a charismatic host, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment, this show was the pick.


More rapid than sponsors, the episodes came, And the host spoke with fervor, calling them by name!


"Now, Audacity! now, GarageBand! now, Zoom and Skype! On, Patreon! On, Anchor! On, Spotify and alike!


To the top of the charts! To the top of them all! Now produce away, produce away, produce away all!"


As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.


So up to the charts, the episodes they flew, With a show full of wisdom, and the host too.


And then, in a twinkling, I heard on my pod, The prancing and playing of each witty bod.


As I drew in my earbuds and was turning around, Down the download charts, the episodes bound.


The host was dressed in expertise, from head to foot, And the guests brought insights, oh, they were a hoot! A bundle of knowledge they had flung on their backs, And they shared it with listeners, breaking all tracks.


Their eyes—how they twinkled! Their voices, how merry! Their banter was gold, like a podcasting cherry!


The mics were all set, the levels just right, The sound quality crisp, bringing joy to the night.


The guests spoke of passions, of triumphs and trials, Of laughter and learning, traversing many miles.


The host, with a purpose, led the conversation, Guided with questions, a skilled navigation.


The show was a hit, a sensation so grand, Resonating with people all over the land.


And I heard them exclaim as the episode ceased, Happy podcasting to all, and to all a good feast!


🎄Merry Podcasting To all!
