Why Are Some Of Your Podcasts From Ages Ago?

Why Are Some Of Your Podcasts From Ages Ago?

As you will hear at the beginning of many of my upcoming podcasts - I will be explaining that these podcasts were actually recorded ages ago. Now - mean AGES ago.

Basically, my first podcasts that I ever recorded did pretty well. Averaging 12,000 listens per episode, interest in sponsorship and a potential collaboration with a major travel brand.

All sounds brilliant, right? Unfortunately, I did not necessarily appreciate this at the time. The last project that I had worked on was a relatively successful band Emily. I should probably write a blog on that at some point. Emily always received 100,000’s of listens per song and sometimes even in the millions - and were regularly in talks with labels & management companies.

So, unfortunately, I did not really appreciate what I had at the time.

I was also beginning to become much more career focussed. I was on contract work with Ireland’s biggest radio broadcaster but while working there - managed to discover a talent and passion for social media. I began working across more and more radio stations - managing their social media accounts. The dream of working in radio began to somewhat fade and an interest in marketing had risen.

I then got a job in a digital marketing agency in London, which was a dream. My skillset was always mostly organic content across social media (essentially an average copywriter) but needed to upskill and fast - across a variety of other digital marketing suites. The passion for podcasting and radio fell even further into the background as the need to survive kicked in.

After a few months of settling in and getting more comfortable both professionally and personally - a desire to do something on my own became into the frame. Following a year at the agency, I was offered a super exciting opportunity from another agency, who had links to travel. This particular digital marketing agency owned a travel publishing site that they were hoping to turn edgy and push the boundaries with content.

I was allllll over that!

But politics kicked in and in reality - it was never going to work. I was not a travel content creator - I was a marketer. It took me a while to get to grips with it and I attempted to create a podcast series to push out for the travel website but it did not transpire that way and I joined a social media agency.

Once more - podcasting fell to the background despite always being interested in it. I created more podcasts and a documentary. I was planning to fire up the website and do more stuff as you can read in my manifesto here*

Thankfully, rather than needing to put my tail in between my legs and re-emailing everyone to do more interviews, I found the stuff that I recorded. And some of them are f**king awesome so figured - why not release them?

They may be three years old but class is permanent!
