  5. I don't have the time
  6. I'm shy
  7. I don't have anything to say
  8. The stuff I know about is realy niche and noone will be interested
  9. What if I get negative comments
  10. Who would listen to my show anyway
  11. I've never done this before

Uploaded an episode that ticks all the boxes.

I should do an episode nominating myself for an award...

...because based on this episode, I probably have the most ridiculously lame excuses (plural!) for not getting the three that I've got in progress finished and uploaded yet. The excuses presented here sound perfectly rational by comparison.
