Podcaster Stories will be taking a hiatus for the foreseeable future. After 50 plus episodes, with some very personal stories being shared, I've come to the point where I need to take a break for my own mental wellness.

Drew Toynbee is one of the co-hosts of Sequel Pitch, a show that takes a movie that never received a sequel, and has the co-hosts pitch their own, often with a special guest to judge the efforts. Drew talks about how the idea came about, who the biggest movie fan is on the show, how a happy accident led to a new section of the show, and how the podcast community can better help support mental health of podcasters. Turning Goals into a Creative OutletWhile Drew had a spell as an actor, it didn't pan out and he found himself in a variety of mundane corporate jobs. However, his dreams of being able to work in a creative space never left, and this came to fruition while playing video games with university friends online. From there, Sequel Pitch was born. On Finding Early Fans in the SpaceWhen the show first started, while the numbers were okay the boys from Sequel Pitch wondered if the idea for the show was sound. However, while they were considering a rethink, the podcast started to get traction thanks to influential supporters in the space promoting the show. This showed the merit of the idea, and how it could grown. On Being the Biggest Movie Fan on the ShowWhen I asked Drew who the biggest movie fan is out of the four co-hosts, he was clear that it was him. Listen in to his recollection of special edition DVDs, and why trailers don't spoil movies for him. A Happy AccidentAs part of the growth of Sequel Pitch, the boys now have bonus episodes that are akin to the Director's Cut that movies receive. Drew shares how that came about by a happy accident, but how it's now an integral part of the show. How the Podcast Has Helped His Mental HealthDrew shares how he suffers from anxiety and impostor syndrome, and he talks about Sequel Pitch's positive impact on his mental health, both through the show itself and how it's forced him to reach out and talk about issues he might be going through. How the Podcast Community Can Help Remove the Stress of PodcastingWe talked about how podcasters can fall victim to anxiety, through the pressure that can come with running a podcast. Worries about numbers, how to find sponsors, are people enjoying, etc, and how the podcast industry in general can help podcasters through this.

This week, I sit down with Matt Medeiros, host of many shows including the WP Minute and the Matt Report, where he talks tech, podcasting, WordPress, and more. Matt's journey from "computer guy" to podcaster is an interesting and varied one, and in this week's episode Matt talks about that, as well as the legacy he's looking to build. A Podcaster's PodcasterMatt has a lot of shows under his belt, both personal podcasts and professional podcasts. Starting out in the WordPress world, and utilizing that with his marketing agency, Matt knew he needed something different to win clients. Enter podcasting. Since then, he's built a great reputation as both a podcaster, and someone in the podcasting space. Why Local Podcasting is So Important to HimMatt spoke about the legacy he wants to leave (even though he cringes when he hears that word!), and it's not the kind of legacy that you might originally think of when you hear the word. Like Father, Like SonWhile Matt is heavily ensconced in the tech world through his love of WordPress and podcasting, his father was the one that helped get him there. As Matt says, his dad had a beast of a product that would be the equivalent of a laptop today, and that's what stoked his interests and led him on the path he's on today. The Rise of Podcasting GurusAs podcasting continues to grow in popularity, so has the amount of podcast experts and gurus that have suddenly appeared to share their wisdom on how to get a ,illion downloads and huge sponsorship deals in the first month of your show. Matt shares how he has a love/hate relationship with these "experts". The Commodity of TrustWith his background in car sales and agency life, Matt's used to asking people for money, and how to handle rejection. One of the biggest things to avoid that rejection is to build trust - trust in you, trust in your product, and trust (from a podcaster's point of view) in your content. This can help even the smallest podcasters succeed and earn serious revenue. You have to value yourself first to believe in what you're offering your audience.Passing on What Podcasting Has Done for HimMatt's super grateful for what the podcasting industry has done for him, and as part of the legacy that he spoke about earlier in the episode, he wants to pass on that gratitude, and the lessons that have come with that, to his children. This includes the art of storytelling and confidence in who you are and what you stand for. Giving Voice to the Underrepresented Matt's incredibly passionate about bringing more voices to the podcasting space, especially underrepresented and minority voices. He shares an interesting experiment he's running on his WP Minute podcast to help make this happen. Matt and the Big Orange HeartIn an incredibly raw and emotional moment, Matt talked about his involvement with Big Orange Heart, and why he supports it. It was a sobering reminder that we all need to look out for each other's mental health, and make it normal to speak up when you're suffering. That's why I give back to that organization. It's extremely important what they're doing, and if I can help... I try. Connect with Matt: https://craftedbymatt.com/ (Crafted By Matt) https://twitter.com/mattmedeiros (Matt on Twitter) Contact me: danny@podcasterstories.com My equipment: https://amzn.to/2ZOhDbC (Electro-Voice RE320) https://amzn.to/3geVL2w (Motu M2 Audio Interface) https://amzn.to/35AgGpg (Denon DJ HP-1100 Over Ear Headphones) https://www.ocwhite.com/product/podcast-pro-microphone-boom/ (Podcast Pro Boom Arm by Accu-Lite and O.C.

This week, I sit down with Tony Doe, host of The Tony Doe Podcast, where he chats with radio broadcasters who answer questions fans are curious about. This audio series is about people from different backgrounds who share their radio stories, and how they feel about the medium's present and future. Art Reflecting LifeTony's background is in radio, and his show reflects that, with his guests coming from the medium and sharing why they chose radio, and what they're using it for to share their messages or art. This is also true for Tony, who has used the pandemic to share his knowledge with younger people, and help them get their break in radio and the audio medium. Does Podcasting Need More Regulation?Because of his background in radio, Tony is well-versed in what can and can't be said on public radio. This changes drastically when it comes to podcasting, and he shares some great insights on what he feels are the biggest differences, and how we can bridge them. It's a great platform for preparing people for radio; but it's also a great platform for discussing the things you can't talk about on radio.2022 - The Year of the Indie Podcaster?Tony firmly believes that 2022 is the year that the indie podcaster can shine. While mega-million dollars continue to shape who's who in the industry, this leaves a gap for the indie podcaster to be truly contextual for their listener, and deliver a more custom listening experience. The Responsibility of TrustWe spoke about the recent controversy around Joe Rogan, and what that might mean for both podcasters and platforms when it comes to what can be said on a podcast. Tony's a believer that the audience needs to make an informed choice - but the podcaster also has a big part to play. Just because I have a podcast doesn't mean I have to fool you or deceive you. I owe you, the listener, the responsibility of trust.Connect with Tony: https://www.podpage.com/thetonydoepodcast/ (The Tony Doe Podcast) https://twitter.com/tonydoevo (Tony on Twitter) Contact me: danny@podcasterstories.com My equipment: https://amzn.to/2ZOhDbC (Electro-Voice RE320) https://amzn.to/3geVL2w (Motu M2 Audio Interface) https://amzn.to/35AgGpg (Denon DJ HP-1100 Over Ear Headphones) https://www.ocwhite.com/product/podcast-pro-microphone-boom/ (Podcast Pro Boom Arm by Accu-Lite and O.C.

This week, I sit down with Becca Atkinson, host of The Unashamed Alcoholic, where she talks with sober people using their platforms to speak openly about their journey with addiction. This includes sports stars, media celebrities, and more, and who inspired Becca to openly talk about her own journey as a recovering alcoholic. The Freeing Power of OpennessBecca shares how she didn't do anything by halves when it came to opening up about her journey as an alcoholic. Indeed, it was on a national radio station that she first got the courage to speak up, and she never looked back from there. I wanted him to know he wasn't alone and he still had a fan in me.When Bobby Ryan of NHL hockey team Ottawa Senators shared his own story of addiction, Becca wrote a letter to her local newspaper stating her unequivocal support for the player, and thanking him for his bravery in talking out This, in turn, enabled her own bravery. The Expectation of DrinkingDespite more people opening up and talking about their own journeys with alcohol and addiction, it's still a very taboo subject for many. Becca feels this can come down to how we've normalized drinking - we're simply expected to start drinking at legal age - but we haven't yet normalized talking about addiction. I was never told being sober is an optionThe Conversations with FamilyWhen Becca was going through her journey, it led to conversations with her family about what she had been going through, and the lengths she'd gone at times to hide that journey. It was interesting to hear how the different parts of the journey she was on led to very different conversations with her family, especially her two young children. The Growth Process of RecoveryRecently, Becca posted a tweet about receiving an email from her ex-husband, and how she read the first line and deleted it, knowing she didn't need that negativity in her life anymore. As she says, this is a part of the recovery process, and a good indicator of how far she's come.

This week, I sit down with Kevin Steinberg, host of the Frankly Kev podcast, where he talks to everyday heroes who have experienced one or more of life's many challenges. No experts giving you a checklist of how to perfectly do things. Or spokespeople and gurus to sell you products with pitch-perfect phrases. No celebrities to gawk at or fawn over. Just real people telling you real life stories. You Know What? They're People TooWhen Kevin first started his show, he used to do a quick intro about his guest and then get straight to the "meat" of the topic they were talking about. But then he had an epiphany - you wouldn't talk like this away from podcasting, so why do it now? This led to a much different, and more valued, approach to his show. Putting Yourself in Someone Else's ShoesKevin's background is in acting, and he feels this is a key part of him being able to make guests feel comfortable when it comes to talking about very difficult topics. He tries to put himself in their shoes, to see what feels right and what shouldn't be asked, and that helps him really empathize with his guests. If this is a teachable moment, please tell me and we'll move on.My Sovereign Shield Has Been HumourDespite the topics on the show being dark, Kevin shares how he and his guests often laugh while recording, because sometimes that's the best defence - and offence - against the horrors that life can throw at us. People Who Need PeopleKevin takes his inspiration in life from other people. Whether that's people whose views he agrees with, or those who differ greatly - just taking the time to talk, listen, and learn. Because at the end of the day, we're all we've got. The Heroes Behind the ScenesWhile Kevin's podcast is about everyday heroes and what they've overcome, his goal for the second season and beyond is an interesting take on the people behind the heroes.

This week, I sit down with Suzanne Falter, host of the Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women podcast, a show about the importance of self-care and building healthy self-care habits for women everywhere. She's also the author of several books and continues the legacy of her daughter Teal, who passed in 2012 ,through helping other women be who they were meant to be. On Slowing Down and Going WithinSuzanne shares the importance of taking care of ourselves. She had never done that her whole life, and it was only when she lost her daughter that she made the time to truly focus on her and her wellness. A Certain Level of DenialAs we enter the third year of the global pandemic that is Covid, Suzanne makes an important point about the toll it's taken on us as human beings, beyond the obvious physical loss of life. We need to keep the ability to daydream to get insights to our recovery.The Lights Are ShiningSuzanne's show has a multitude of guests on a variety of topics, and she shares the example of one who talked about the rise in verbal abuse, and how we may not treat that the same as we do with physical abuse.  This then results in tragic circumstances as we see the fallout of silence and inaction. She hopes social justice movements like #MeToo will drive more conversations and awareness. On the Need to Remove Cultural ConditioningWith Suzanne's podcast and books geared towards empowering women to live the life they want and deserve, she talks about how cultural conditioning is stopping women from meeting that goal. Often they feel guilty for wanting more, and this line of thinking has been instilled almost from birth. We like to do more than the job requires.Being the Person Her Daughter Wanted Her to BeAs her daughter Teal lay in her hospital bed, Suzanne realized she knew she was going to die, and this realization made her determined to be the kind of person her daughter would have wanted her to be.  Connect with Suzanne: https://suzannefalter.com/ (Suzanne's website) https://suzannefalter.com/xbwpodcast/ (The Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women Podcast) https://www.facebook.com/groups/selfcareforextremelybusywomen/ (The Self-Care Group for Extremely Busy Women) Contact me: danny@podcasterstories.com My equipment: https://amzn.to/2ZOhDbC (Electro-Voice RE320) https://amzn.to/3geVL2w (Motu M2 Audio Interface) https://amzn.to/35AgGpg (Denon DJ HP-1100 Over Ear Headphones) https://www.ocwhite.com/product/podcast-pro-microphone-boom/ (Podcast Pro Boom Arm by Accu-Lite and O.C.

This week, I sit down with Andrew Davie, co-host of the Happy Hour with Heather and Guest podcast, a show that highlights local artists to perform and promote their music, live events, and more. Andrew is also a survivor of a life-changing event that happened on his 40th birthday, and he shares that story and more on today's episode. The Opposing Views That Got Him Into PodcastingWhile the podcast that he co-hosts with Heather is his current passion project, Andrew had another podcast that ran for several years, over 500+ episodes. He shares how listening to a podcast where one co-host had to convince the other host why a certain band was good helped him on his podcast journey. The Expectation in Life of How Something is Going to BeAndrew used the example of how heavy metal music fans are supposed to look a certain way and how he looks anything but that. And that's something that we need to look at in life, how our expectations are shaped by stereotypical learnings, and how that holds us back. How a Series of Unfortunate Circumstances Saved His LifeAndrew was due to fly out to visit his family, but his life was about to take a huge turn. Thankfully, as Andrew shares, there was a series of unfortunate - but, as it turned out, fortunate - circumstances that led him to where he is today. "It's the little things that get you through the difficult days."Connect with Andrew: https://andrew-davie.com/ (Andrew's website) https://anchor.fm/happyhourhg (Happy Hour with Heather and Guest) Contact me: danny@podcasterstories.com My equipment: https://amzn.to/2ZOhDbC (Electro-Voice RE320) https://amzn.to/3geVL2w (Motu M2 Audio Interface) https://amzn.to/35AgGpg (Denon DJ HP-1100 Over Ear Headphones) https://www.ocwhite.com/product/podcast-pro-microphone-boom/ (Podcast Pro Boom Arm by Accu-Lite and O.C.

This week, I sit down with Nick Nalbach, host of the Nine-Five Podcast, a show that features entrepreneurs sharing what got them to where they’re at to help you get inspired to launch your own entrepreneurial journey. From new entrepreneurs to entrepreneurial veterans, Nick dives into what made them choose this path, and how they’ve managed to find success in their given niche. I don't really know what to do with my handsNick's original idea was for a video show, but he felt uncomfortable being "on display", and wasn't really sure how to present himself that the audio-only option of a podcast was far more attractive. Content that Has an ImpactNick makes a really good point on how we can often talk ourselves out of creating something, because we feel we'll never be as good as someone who's already doing it. But all content can make an impact, and that's the thing we should be looking at. I can be presentNick shares how he spent years blogging, and he could never have imagined having the guest he has on his podcast write guest posts for the blog. However, having a podcast has given him a presence that guests seem to be more inclined to appear on, and that's helped him grow personally and professionally. Why You Should Fire Yourself From Your BusinessOne of the things that can be hard to manage is when to outsource your needs. Finances can play a part, as can being reluctant to let go of your "baby". But as Nick shares with an example from one of his guest's, hiring can make you much more efficient and thereby earn more revenue. Success is Different for EverybodyNick talks about why he was always turned off by the 9-5 job, and much of it is down to the lack of control. You're always adhering to someone else's clock and schedule, and you usually have little say in how your own work life revolves around that. Not that you can't feel successful in a 9-5 job, as everyone's goals are different.

This week, I sit down with Tommy Serafinski, host of Tommy's Outdoors, a show that looks at the relationship between humans and wildlife, and how that affects biodiversity, conservation, rewilding, and more. Each episode, Tommy interviews guests across all spectrums of the space, often with different viewpoints from each other. It's an approach that Tommy says is super valuable when it comes to learning. I learn something in every episode.One of the things that Tommy is adamant in providing is a space for everyone to talk, even when he might vehemently disagree with his guest's point of view. For Tommy, this ensures an honest and open discussion where he, his guest, and listeners may come away with a different viewpoint.. Commonalities Bring Us TogetherApproaching a difficult topic with a tunnel vision point of view that only your take is the right one is not the way to go. Tommy likens it to trying to attack a heavily fortified army installation, where the only thing that's going to happen is conflict. It's important to focus on things we have in common.Instead, by focusing on commonalities, we can start to build bridges and shared understanding. The Depletion That Impacts Us AllTommy talks about the differences between his native Poland and his adopted home Ireland. One of the biggest things he's noticed is how little natural habitat is left in Ireland, and that the industrialization of the West has removed the learnings and growth we can take from human and wildlife interaction. Industrialization is killing the opportunity for human and wildlife interaction.Why We Need a Conversation PlatformTying in to his goal of offering a platform for everyone to share their beliefs, Tommy's goal for the show is to make it known as a conversation platform. Social media is not the medium for discussion.While social media sees ideas shot down in vitriolic attacks, Tommy feels podcasts and open-minded hosts are the way forward for actual conversation and learning.

As the great John Lennon once sang, it's another year over. Though with Covid continuing to dominate world headlines, it feels like the year has been another long one full of ups and downs. But hopefully 2021 may be the year we finally started to see light at the end of a very long tunnel, and 2022 brings happier times all round. With that in mind, I just wanted to share my end of year wishes and updates.

For regular listeners of the show, you'll have noticed it's been a bit quiet here since Season 4 launched. Instead of the usual weekly series, only the first two episodes were published, and then silence. I sincerely apologize for this, it was definitely not the intent. Here's what happened. As you'll know, the show features podcasters opening up about their personal stories. These are stories that may not have been heard before in public, and can be very raw and emotional, and I sincerely thank all of my guests so far for being so open with their stories. This can lead to emotions in me coming to the fore, when the struggles of a guest are ones I've been through myself, or loved ones around me have. Some of you may know this about me from an earlier episode where I spoke with my wife, but I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety around 4 years ago. For the majority of the time, it's something that I can manage, but now and again the shadows block out the light. This has been particularly true with Covid, and its impact on all our lives. Everything has changed, and sometimes it's hard to see where all this might end. Especially when you have two young kids that you're doing everything you can to protect them, in a world where not everyone wants to be part of that protective community. Anyhoo... as a result of the increased emotions from the stories shared by my guests, and sheer fight or flight exhaustion in trying to keep my family safe, I decided to take a mental health break where I could focus on the lighter side of life. Summer at the beach, getting out on the lake, experiencing the beautiful natural surroundings of where we live, etc. And it was exactly what I needed to refresh both my creative and personal energy. So, Podcaster Stories will return very early in the New Year. I have some amazing guests lined up, and each one has an incredibly inspiring story to share.  In the meantime, to keep the podcasting juices flowing, I've just launched a new show called Memories of 3DO, which looks at the history of a gaming console classic that was ultimately doomed to fail. This is a fun little project for me, and may lead to others in a series. The show is snackable content, with each episode less than 5 minutes long. If classic video games are your thing, you can find out more at http://3dopodcast.com/ (3dopodcast.com) Thanks so much for being part of the Podcaster Stories community, and thanks for your messages and emails asking if everything was okay, I sincerely appreciate them.  Until the next time, stay safe and take care.

After suffering from severe stress while going through her doctorate, Dr. Alice fell into a downward spiral of alcohol abuse. This continued until she realized her problem, and she has been sober for three years since. It's this experience that led Dr. Alice to starting the Beyond the Pink Cloud podcast, where she talks to people that have overcome their own battles with substance abuse, as well as inspired others by living their best lives. Topics up for discussion this week include: how the podcast grew from her own recovery from alcohol abuse how the Covid-19 pandemic is leading to higher stress and addiction temptation how we're adding to our stress levels while working from home how the show's direction has evolved from recovery-focused to multiple fields of expertise across various topics why she's inspired by people living their dreams some of the hurdles that are hard to overcome when dealing with abuse how the drinking culture of different countries affects addiction levels the fear of sharing her story in the first few episodes how she became a semi-professional fire dancer Settle back for an open and honest discussion about addiction, recovery, and what that means to the people afflicted, and those surrounding them.

This week is a little different. As some of you might know, I also run a couple of other podcasts - one, as a host, and the other as a co-host. Today, I want to share an episode from the podcast I co-host, Mental Health and Us. It originally started out as a solo hosted show by my wife, Jaclyn, and was called Mental Health and me. It shared self-care and wellness tips to help other mental health sufferers and their loved ones cope. Jaclyn uses her 20 year battle with both depression and anxiety to share what's worked for her, and how that could maybe help you. I personally suffer from mental health issues too, and it's an important topic, and one that I see more of in the podcasting space, both from a podcaster and a listener perspective. In this episode, Jaclyn shares how a major health scare made her fear the worst, and why it's important to understand how your physical health is important to your mental health. The Mental Health and Us podcast will be relaunching early October, and you can catch up with other episodes over at http://mentalhealthpodcast.ca/ (mentalhealthpodcast.ca) Next week we'll be back to the usual Podcaster Stories programming - thank you for letting me share this special episode with you.

This week I sit down with Joenrhuz "JR" Tabanda, host and audio producer of the Time Capsule Show, a podcast sharing the everyday stories of everyday people. Each episode asks six thoughtful questions that guests can use to define their life in the 21st century at this moment. We wanted to give people hope, especially young people that may feel alone.JR talks about what their goals were with the show, and how that's taken shape, and how the pandemic gave them the opportunity to put these goals to fruition. We Are All ConnectedJR and his podcast team and co-hosts share the belief that everyone has a story, and that's why they appear on the Time Capsule Show. We just try and put up stories that are timely, powerful, and help us understand the culture of the time we're going through.One thing they're particularly determined to do with the show is to give the guests a platform, and share their point of view, whether it fits with the hosts or not . On Taking a Different PathWith a Filipino background, it was expected that both JR and his brother would take a career in the medical profession, or a similarly professional one. But that was a very different path from the one he envisioned. While he may yet take that career path, for now he's more than satisfied and challenged by the route he's currently on. Everybody has an opinion, but it's up to you what value you place in that opinion.Heroes Don't Always Wear CapesWhile he'd never describe himself as a tennis player, or even someone that has just a passing interest in the sport from a playing point of view, his all-time hero hails from it. Rafael Nadal epitomizes everything we should aspire to be, in our personal and professional lives. People's expectations of you don't mean anything, and if you set your mind to anything you can achieve it.Connect with JR: https://www.timecapsuleshow.com/ (Time Capsule Show) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ3x9haDDMT-BllqiCYzLyg (YouTube) https://www.instagram.com/tcshow21/?fbclid=IwAR2tlXFFusl4MHVBSZy7M733fAwd1KTEfTZde24W9ZUz8EM-NtN9G2rkxOo (Instagram) Contact me: danny@podcasterstories.com My equipment: https://amzn.to/2ZOhDbC (Electro-Voice RE320) https://amzn.to/3geVL2w (Motu M2 Audio Interface) https://amzn.to/35AgGpg (Denon DJ HP-1100 Over Ear Headphones) https://www.ocwhite.com/product/podcast-pro-microphone-boom/ (Podcast Pro Boom Arm by Accu-Lite and O.C.

So a funny thing happened on the way to getting Season 4 of Podcaster Stories ready - from personal and work life, to guests that weren't really right for the show. This resulted in the new season being delayed by about a month, which I apologize for. The good news is that Season 4 will be released next week, so I'm looking forward to sharing more awesome stories with you. There's also an update about the Quite the Thing podcast network that Podcaster Stories is now part of, and is very much geared towards community focus and engaging our listeners, so I'm stoked to be part of that. Thanks for your patience over the summer, and I hope you've had a safe and enjoyable one. Here;'s to Season 4.

The Season 3 Recap

2021-04-2907:44

Season 3 of Podcaster Stories has just wrapped, and in this episode I look back at the guests and the inspiring and insightful stories they shared.

On April 21st 2020, Podcaster stories was launched. Unlike my other podcasts up until that point, this wouldn't be a solo show - instead, it'd be an interview-style show. Not only that, but it would be an interview-style show with fellow podcasters, many of whom had interview shows of their own. So, to say I was a little nervous would be an understatement! But, 12 months on, I'm enjoying it as much as ever, and have some fun ideas regarding the next 12 months and beyond. Thank you so much for listening so far, and I can't wait to share the next stage of Podcaster Stories with you.

This week, I sit down with Lainey Cameron, host of The Best of Women’s Fiction podcast, a show that highlights authors that Lainey respects, as well as interviews with best-selling and women fiction authors. Each episode, Lainey and her guests share what inspired a favourite author’s book, as well as what advice they’d give to other writers. Lainey is also the author of the award-winning novel, The Exit Strategy, which was inspired by a decade of being the only woman in the corporate boardroom. It’s been called a “rallying call for women to believe in themselves and join together” and tells the story of a Silicon Valley investor who first meets her husband’s mistress across the negotiating table. If someone’s a great talent but a pain in the ass to work with, that’s going to be a problem.For her first book, Lainey hired a voiceover professional to read the audio version, and she shares here how that process works. Far from simply reading the words on a page, the artist needs to connect with the story and characters, to ensure the author’s vision remains, even when the end result can be something very different from what the author envisaged. On Creating a Brand Through an ExperimentLainey originally started podcasting as a video broadcaster using Streamyard for live interviews, and then decided to take that to an audio format. To her pleasant surprise, the audio version of the show has overtake the video version, and is really taking off, helping her to connect more authors to a wider audience. I wish I had had that kind of advice when starting out.As the podcast has grown, Lainey is determined to continue giving a voice to lesser-known authors, and connecting them with the talent that can help them grow their audience. The Importance of Vetting and QualityAs Lainey’s show has grown, so has the amount of cold pitches she’s receiving to have authors as guests on her show. While this can be a good thing when it comes to episode growth, it can also impact the amount of guests she has on, due to the extra research involved. A limited amount of time to read the books sent to her Minimal pre-release information or promo sheets A lack of peer reviews to ensure the book and author are right for her show Since Lainey is very conscientious when it comes to who and what she shares with her audience, this extra awareness can cause problems that weren’t there before. The Continuing Problem with the Tech IndustryLainey’s background is in the tech start-up world, specifically in Silicon Valley. Being the only high-flying woman executive in the room would come with its own challenges, on top of the job any executive would need to do as part of their everyday life. It is frustrating and tiring to be the only woman in the room, and to be the only senior woman on the team.It often lead to Lainey needing to be twice as good as the men in the same position, and understand that the microscope was on her even more because of her gender. How She Ended Up Hunting with Stoned Tribesmen in TanzaniaAs digital nomads, both Lainey and her husband have traveled to numerous parts of the world, leading to a mix of scary and funny adventures. One that sticks in Lainey’s mind is when they were on a safari tour in Africa, and ended up going hunting with a bunch of stoned teenage tribesmen in Tanzania. Now that’s not something we can all say we’ve done!
