Mike Murphy Unplugged went live on iTunes:
Friday September 25, 2015.
Why Did I Start?:
I created the show simply to help me figure things out for myself and to give me an outlet to teach and create content around the topics that I love to learn and share with others.
By teaching and sharing my journey and process of building an online business and brand I knew that I would eventually find my own voice and put the pieces of the puzzle together while simultaneously helping and inspiring others trying to do the same thing.
Every Friday morning at 12:15 am
Newsletter every Friday morning at 6:00 am

My favorite episodes?
Episode 1 About Mike: I worked hard on that episode and thought it was good.
Episode 56: The Adobe Audition Show: Mostly because the head of Audition, Durin Gleaves, emailed to tell me the whole Audition listened. #Bam
On the beach here in Naples
Pure fun for me pushing the limits of gear & tech and I also thought they would inspire and motivate new podcasters intimidated by recording mobile audio.
Episode 94: The Dead Show. It made me happy and I enjoyed it.
Least Favorite: Hardware heavy episodes
The Microphone Show
The Hardware Show
The most downloaded show:
Episode 83: The Personal Brand Show (Part 2). The only show to get over 1,000 downloads
What I love about podcasting?
Figuring out how to use the gear and it felt really cool to have equipment that allowed me to basically have my own internet radio show from my bedroom.
I love the act of creating a meaningful body of work. I look at my podcast as my journal or portfolio and it is one of the best perks of podcasting for me.
I also love the accountability. My podcast has been a pillar for me and I like have to show up week after week. It makes me stronger and disciplined.
Pat on the back moment:
Since episode 1, I have created and uploaded at least one piece of content every single day.
What I less than love about podcasting?
Writing the script each week is my least favorite thing by a long shot.
I know people in the podcast space are anti-scripts, but fortunately I am not easily influenced.
Do your thing, always.
So What Lessons have I learned from podcasting?
Podcasting has not made me rich with money, but rich in knowledge and skills (audio, video, tech, design, creativity and business…)
Podcasting has helped me become a better communicator, teacher and writer.
Podcasting has given me a new sense of Confidence and self-awareness and many other self-development adjectives.
Podcasting has helped me make some really good connections with people. There have been a small group of people who have been supporters since the very beginning and I thank you with all I have.
What does the future look like for Mike Murphy Unplugged?
Much of the same. Sharing my journey and processes while I make a dent in the universe. Episodes may be shorter or less dense, but still working out the kinks.
Thank you for joining me on this special episode 100.
