It seems like there is a widespread attitude that all hobbies must be side hustles.

Yes! This sounds like it falls into the same category as a gym membership (or even if you just run outside, you pay for shoes). You pay for exercise because it’s good for your mind and body. You don’t refuse to exercise just because no one pays you to do it.

long as the podcast makes you $25/mo worth of happy, then I say it’s justified!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
