This week’s challenge: have a holiday party.
Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott joins Ray in the studio for his first live interview after being ousted
This week’s episode is longer than normal because it’s jam packed with stories and advice from the past four years of making a living online.
I share ins and outs, fears and motivations, challenges and victories. Highlights include:
Why I quit my job to write shawnblanc.net for a living.
The launch of my members-only podcast and how I thought it was so audacious to charge $3/month.
The shift I see related to advertising as a significant business model.
Building and launching Delight is in the Details versions 1 and 2 — including what I learned about how an idea needs to mature and grow, how my idealistic approach to marketing isn’t practical, and how I felt like a fraud when I wanted to charge $29 for the complete bundle.
And my latest project, The Focus Course, and the challenges and fears I’m facing with it right now.
Beginning — the post I wrote announcing that I was quitting my job

Casey Liss, of the Accidental Tech Podcast and Analog(ue), joins Scott to discuss “Shades of Gray” (TNG S2E22). Widely, and correctly, hailed as the worst episode of TNG ever this podcast covers everything from Starfleet Medical’s lax attitude towards quarantining people to the expensive nature of filming a TV show. Did I mention Shades of Gray is a clip show? In the second season of TNG? It isn’t good, people. Not at all.
Woop is a scientific strategy that people can use to find and fulfill their wishes and change their habits. It is also known as Mental Contrasting with Implementation Intentions (MCII). Its about rethinking positive thinking.
Comedian Marc Maron is tackling the most complex philosophical question of our day - WTF? He’ll get to the bottom of it with help from comedian friends, celebrity guests and the voices in his own head. You loved him on Morning Sedition. You kinda liked him on The Marc Maron Show. You tolerated him on Break Room Live. Now, embrace him on a show from which he cannot be fired - WTF with Marc Maron.
