Why would I pay to listen to a podcast?

Short answer, you don’t!

I can get it for free on Spotify/Apple?

You are right, listening to podcasts is free for the most part. We are not charging you to listen to your favourite podcast, we are all about empowering you to measure/track and reflect on using what you hear to improve your personal and professional life. Sometimes people say ‘Knowledge is power’. That is incorrect – ‘Applied knowledge is power’. We help you apply the knowledge.

Makes sense. So how do you solve “The Dishwasher Problem”?

The SkillDing tools allow you to choose a time and a place to deliberately practise and reflect on how you are using the actionable content from a podcast episode. You also have the option to ask questions (or just show off your successes) directly to the podcaster, for guidance if you need it.

How does it work?

Sign up for a course via a voucher code and get immediate access to the tools, members forum and report dashboards.

Before an event

You choose a time and a place to deliberately practise something, set it and forget it. We will remind you 10 minutes before you are due to do it. It might be an important presentation, a sales conversation or a difficult conversation you need to have with someone.

After an event

When the meeting/session is complete we will nudge you to reflect on your effort. This is where the real learning happens – when you quietly reflect in your mind about how it went. You can then chalk it up to experience or go again. You can also share it with anyone who you think would benefit from being aware of your attempt (line manager, best friend, podcaster). Of course, you can keep it private until the end of time if you choose.

Step 2: Deliberate Practice

Select a time and place to deliberately practise something you have heard in an episode. We’ll remind you 10 minutes before your chosen practice time. It could be preparing for a crucial presentation, a sales pitch, or a challenging conversation.

Step 3: After Practicing

After your session or meeting, we’ll prompt you to reflect on your efforts. The real learning occurs when you quietly contemplate how it went. You can chalk it up as experience or try again. Share your experience with anyone who might benefit, like your manager, friend, or a podcaster. Alternatively, keep it private until the end of time!

Key Takeaways

What is “The Dishwasher Problem”?

How often have you heard something excellent on a podcast and thought “that is a great point, I should do that!” but you are listening while you are doing something else? Like walking the dog, sitting in traffic or emptying the dishwasher. Listening to a podcast is generally a secondary activity. So that excellent piece of advice you heard goes in one ear and out the other. But there is gold in the episodes you listen to. Think of SkillDing as the pickaxe.
