The joys and challenges of producing your first podcast


How I went from PR initiate to expert and made a podcast mini-episode along the way

 

After a mere four days of getting to grips with the PR do’s and don’ts, the Meantime team very casually announce they are bestowing me with the responsibility of interviewing several trainees from the Taylor Bennett Foundation(TBF) (yikes) which I will proceed to make into a podcast for the official website (double yikes).

Despite my lack of podcasting expertise, my creative side (which I have kept locked away over the period of my degree studying the intricacies of English Grammar) quickly emerged; ready to make something innovative.

Upon meeting the TBF students, I was full of energy and excitement to begin the project; however, this did result in hours of editing-out my aggressive outbursts of laughter throughout the interview audio…

As the interview progressed and everyone got over the amusement that I was using my iPhone as if it were a BBC 1 microphone, lots of interesting content began to emerge.

From “talking to models” to global communication, we discussed why working in public relations was a mutual career goal.

The trainees also elaborated on their day at Meantime Communications and the insights they had gained about the realities of working for a B2B PR consultancy.

Now that I’ve intrigued you, listen to the podcast mini-episode to find out more!

Even though I had to undertake the horrifying task of having to listen to my own voice on audio, I can conclude that I thoroughly enjoyed the creative journey of producing my first podcast, and I cannot wait for the next challenge Meantime presents me with!
