How We Use Kaizen and our Improvement Software to Get Better: Podcast Episode Numbers
If you’ve been a subscriber to our KaiNexus Continuous Improvement Podcast, you might have noticed a small detail that changed (if you’re not a listener or subscriber, we hope you’ll start).

What’s that change?

Before: Our episodes had a sequential number at the beginning of the file name

After: There’s no longer an episode number for each one

Why? Let me explain.

For one, we think the change doesn’t harm you, the podcast customer, in any way. If you’re a subscriber, podcast apps display the episodes in chronological order already. If you sort by date, you don’t need the episode number. If you disagree about this change being benign for you, please leave a comment on this post and share your feedback.

In the early days of our podcast in July 2015 (yes, it’s been around long enough for there to be long-ago early days), I (Mark Graban) was the only one creating episodes. Initially, the podcasts were just the audio from our monthly webinars (and that’s an idea that came from one of our customers).

Later, I started added more content, such as audiobook versions of blog posts, read by myself and then, eventually, by others. Even with others reading their blog posts, I was the only one uploading files and managing the podcast hosting and release process.

Over time, it made sense to spread out that workload with our wonderful director of marketing, Maggie Millard. Now, with a podcast nearly every day, we had more episodes to work with.

Numbering the episodes became a burden and something that required a lot of coordination and checking back and forth. Maggie would plan blog posts and their corresponding podcast, while I’d be doing other podcast episodes and webinar recordings and such. We were constantly communicating back and forth about which episode was going to be which number.
