Change is unsettling. We grow comfortable with things the way they are. When they shift an inch, we feel the movement as if it were a mile.
Regular listeners will have noticed changes in the podcast this week. The intro, the tone, the focus.
That's a lot to take in.
If you've listened to the podcast already, we hope you understand why we've tinkered with the formula. If you haven't yet. Here's a quick overview.
While we know Paul will return, we don't know when. All we know is that it will be a while yet. When he does, you'll hear three voices host the podcast – Jane is staying on. With that in mind, it was appropriate to change the intro to include the three of us.
The second change is that we are weaning ourselves off Chris Brogan. He was our genesis, our original inspiration, and won't be forgotten, but there are other great thought leaders in business to look at as well. Besides, who can speak in detail better about what Chris Brogan is thinking – us or Chris himself? So, we're broadening our horizons. We don't stray too far in this episode, though. Podcast regular AJ Leon gets a big mention.
In this week's episode, Roger and Jane look at AJ raised big bucks using Kickstarter to publish a book. Roger tells of Peter Cox, an Irish landscape photographer, who had equal success.

Business Jazz Players
This podcast is a collaboration of people dotted around the world. Most of us have never met each other. It's quite a story and it's still evolving. If you'd like to read what's happened so far, you'll find it here: Our Story.
We have a tradition here at Business Jazz of recording a segment of audio around the main podcast, usually afterwards. This week, we skipped it. We'd already recorded four takes of the episode proper, so we were pretty much done. We'll be back next week with the after podcast.
