They said that a humor podcast about yoga philosophy wouldn’t last.
They were right.
The idea for a Visions of Cody podcast came long before I had any concept what the podcast would actually be about. Initially I figured that I’d just read a few essays and play some cool tunes. I quickly realized that essays that were intended to be read on-screen didn’t necessarily translate into compelling audio content. Ultimately my intention was to discuss some aspect of yoga practice, philosophy or culture in a humorous and entertaining manner in 30 minutes or less.
Listening back to the 43 episodes I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out. It’ll be fun to listen to them again in 30 years or so and remember what a loser I was. Then again, in 30 years I’ll probably have no recollection of Visions of Cody and I’ll be all-consumed with trying to convince my children that I don’t really need to wear the Depends.
