Ian Paget Interview Transcription

Mark Des Cotes: Well, Ian, I know this is a little bit of turning the tables on you. I would like to welcome you to the Logo Geek Podcast.

Ian Paget: Thank you, Mark. This is going to be a little bit weird being interviewed for my own show, but thank you so much for originally coming up with the idea. I think it's a perfect way to celebrate 100 episodes.

Mark Des Cotes: Yeah, and what a milestone that is. Let me be the first one to congratulate you on 100 episodes. I don't know if your listeners realise this, but the majority, or I don't know if it's actually the majority, but a huge number of podcasts out there never make it past episode 10. They actually say that the average lifespan of a podcast is between seven and 13 episodes. So the fact that you've made it to 100 episodes is quite a feat in. So congratulations.

Ian Paget: Thank you. Yeah, thank you. It's been a lot of work over the years and I can totally understand why most podcasts just do a few episodes because it really is an extortion amount of work. I just got into the routine of it now and I really enjoy doing it. I get a lot from doing them. Like you, as a podcaster, it just becomes part of your weekly routine. I don't see any end in sight of doing this podcast or even other podcasts in the future. I really enjoy the platform.
