Show Notes for Episode 001:

Jennifer and Scott struggle (at times) to decide on a name for their newly thought up podcast.  Eventually, they settled on the name Making It Up As We Grow.

Could it be too long?  Yes, it could.

Is it search engine friendly?  Possibly

Did it feel like the right name at the right time?  Absolutely

But think about the name.  It’s completely appropriate, because the art of podcasting is quite new to the both of them.  Podcasts have been around for about 10 years, however, that little icon on the iPhone for podcasts went untouched for many years until October 2014.  That is when Scott received an email from his dad titled 15 podcasts you should listen to right now.

That is all it took.  One venture into the podcast app opened up a completely new world for Scott.  Like many other listeners, Scott spends a great deal of time in his car, this was a way to pass the time and learn something in the process.  A match made in heaven.

One final piece was that Scott was drawn to podcasts that tell stories.  This is why Making It Up As We Grow is told in a narrative storytelling format.
