Aug 1, 2017
Tuesday, August 1, marks the 1 year anniversary that The Heart of Hospice podcast has been in production. In honor of this milestone Helen and Jerry take time to reflect on the past year.
This mission we call The Heart of Hospice was created for the purpose of educating and enriching the lives of hospice patients, personal caregivers, and hospice professionals. In the past year we’ve discussed topics ranging from the history of hospice, to self care for the hospice professional.
When we began making our first podcast recordings in January, 2016, it was with some fear and trepidation that we embarked on this journey. Who are we to do something like this? Why would anyone want to listen to us? Do we have anything worth saying that people will want to listen to? Our first recordings were terrible. We laugh at ourselves now. Even then we were not satisfied with the sound quality, or the quality of the content. We kept moving forward, however, believing that with practice it would improve. Thankfully, it did. Our goal is to always be improving, growing, learning, and helping.
We published our first three episodes on August 1, 2016, and after the first year our listeners have downloaded over 11 thousand episodes. To all of you we simply, and gratefully say, thank you.
