The Podfluencer Interview
Who has had the biggest influence on your podcasting career and why?
Patrice Sikora, she was the Managing Director of the WSJ Radio and Podcast network. She helped me get comfortable behind the mic, find my voice, and gave me confidence to host and launch several podcasts while I was there. Even today, she is one of my biggest supporters.
If there’s someone, past or present, that you’d love to have an opportunity to go to dinner with, who would that be and why?
George Carlin, he was one of the greatest satirists of our generation and I think he would have an incredible take on what is going on in the world and how to fix it.
What is it, about your audience, that continues to surprise you?
I am always surprised about the folks that learn something new. We attract a lot of podcast industry titans and influencers and it’s very humbling to know that we are still enlightening them.
In one word, how would your best friends describe you? Why do you think that is?
Dependable. Whenever they need me I am there, especially when they need me most.
If you had one day, completely free, away from work, no watch on, and could do whatever the hell you wanted, what would it be and why?
A vacation day that included golf, pool, dinner and a movie. Four things I enjoy doing with friends and things I wish I had more time for these days.
Any advertisers you want to give a shout out to? Or anyone you’d like to thank ?
Would love to thank Blubrry and BlogTalkRadio. They have been loyal supporters of podtopod for a long time and continue to be supportive of us not only financially but encouraging of what we do.
