The darren barney podcast is an audio show hosted by Darren Barney. The show is about my life, the things that make me happy, and the things that make me sad. I’ve been hosting the show since January of 2015, and it started out as a way to connect with a like-minded group of friends and learn more about what it’s like to go through the struggles that most of us face everyday.
When you are a podcast host, you are a storyteller. The story will come out of you in whatever format you present it to listeners. There is no “right” format. You are just the person who brings the thing to the listener. And the thing will come out of you in whatever format you present it to listeners. There is no “right” format.
So what format do you present your stories to your listeners? In the case of darren barney, that’s the first question you ask yourself.
It’s a great question. I’d like to say the answer is easy: You present your stories in whatever format you feel is most appropriate for your listeners. But as a podcast host, I’m not really that into the format that I present my podcast to listeners. I like to tell stories and I like to talk about people and I like to talk about ideas and I like to talk about the future.
So I like to format my podcasts in the way that I like to talk. I like to talk about people and I like to talk about ideas and I like to talk about the future. I like to format my podcasts in a way that I think is most effective for my listeners. In this case I have chosen to format them in the way that I think is most effective. I have chosen to tell stories, I have chosen to talk about ideas, I have chosen to talk about the future.
The first time I heard about the podcast I thought, “Okay that is my type of podcast. I like to talk about things.” It just seemed like a good format to me. I liked the fact that it was a little bit different from most podcasts. It was not an hour long, it was more a series of talks. I felt like I could get in and out of it and continue the conversation at a more leisurely pace.
Not surprisingly, my first experience with the podcast wasn’t the greatest. It was in my first episode, and I was just talking about some of my favorite things, and suddenly I’m being told to stop talking about my favorite things. I had the impression that, because I was talking about my favorite things, I was somehow violating some moral or other. But even in that first episode, I could see that there was something interesting about it.
I remember when I first heard about what I call the “darren barney” theory. It came from the article “The Darren Barney Theory” by Chris Brogan and John Michael Greer. I was just about to start a podcast with a friend of mine who is an ex-con and a self-help author. He and I had just finished a couple of podcasts on the topic.
This theory is that there has to be something deeply wrong with us to make us act in such desperate ways. It is so counterintuitive, but so true. Most people who have committed crimes or been injured or killed do not go to a doctor or psychiatrists and talk about their problems. They talk about their problems to God, to their parents or to their doctors, who then talk to the police and the courts and then they get help.
The problem with the “death-isnt-the-answer” position is that it fails to understand that life is something to live, not to die, and that our lives are not to be treated like some kind of experiment in the hands of someone who is not very smart. Even the most stupid child has a right to live.
