There's something called glossophobia. If you have this condition then you might experience intense anxiety at the thought of verbally communicating with any group. In extreme cases you could get physically sick, have uncontrollable shaking, and an increased heart rate before having to address a crowd. You may even want to turn around and run the other way.
This is because your lizard brain is kicking and telling you it's time for "fight or flight."
And you know what? Podcasting seems like a form of public speaking to most people.
