Because Car Con Carne isn’t an “episodic” show (you can listen to episodes in any order), it never occurred to me to include episode numbers when I published the individual episodes.
I was also of the assumption that numbering podcast episodes was more of a self-congratulatory thing, done more for the host than the audience. Recent conversations with other podcasters made me second guess that opinion, so I asked my Facebook friends to give me their thoughts.
The overwhelming response was, yes, people like episode numbering for podcasts. And with that, I spent last night editing the individual files and posts to display episode numbers. And episode numbers will be included with each episode moving forward.
I realized after the fact that five episodes didn’t get numbered, including my interview with WWE HOF-er Sunny and my Riot Fest interviews from 2017 (Girls Against Boys, Pepper, Dillinger Escape Plan, Jessica Hernandez). It is what it is, as they say. If I were more OCD, it would drive me crazy. I’ll get over it.
