At the first of the year, I’m launching a limited-run podcast called Lost in the Mail. The title will make more sense after you listen to the first episode.

For a long time, I’ve struggled with what sort of podcast I wanted to make, mostly because I was concerned about what would attract an audience. I finally decided to make something that might attract no audience at all. I’m making what I’d like to listen to — and what I’d like to say.

The 30-second theme below will appear early in each episode.

The appeal of this will be fairly narrow — it’s part psychology, part confessional, part storytelling — but I’m fine with that. I’ve been writing and recording the first couple of episodes and I hope to have it ready to go live on January 1. I expect each episode to be about 10 to 15 minutes long.
