When Tanner Campbell, Edward Havens and other experienced podcasters tackle the question of when to give up and quit, they must confront the difficult decision of whether their goals will be achieved and if their passion is a worthy pursuit.

Tanner Campbell and Edward Havens, two experienced podcasters, discussed on Podcasting Power Hour the question of when it is time to quit a podcast. They discussed the idea of setting KPIs to measure progress and that sometimes the best decision is to pivot to something else. They shared their own experience and advice of when they have quit their own podcasts or decided to change direction. Dave Jackson shared his experience of starting and stopping his podcast three times due to COVID and his journey to play in the local podcasting space. In the end, the conclusion is that it is up to the individual to decide when the time is right to quit a podcast, but it is important to be honest with yourself and have a conversation with someone else to make sure the decision is the right one.
