Everyday when I have a shower, I always listen to my podcasts. In the shower? You may be thinking…yes quite random I know. I always used to listen to music in the shower but then when I switched to podcasts, I loved it. When I’m home from work, I find it difficult to switch off so to sit and have a ‘lazy’ day isn’t for me, I enjoy being productive. Which is why listening to my podcasts in the shower was brilliant, as having a shower is boring, but listening to podcasts is fun. When there’s a particularly good episode coming up, I genuinely get excited to have a shower now.
So one day when I was listening to either Pat Flynn, Tim Ferriss or John le Dumas, I was thinking, I’d like to be on a podcast one day. 3-4 days later, an email popped up in my inbox – introducing Aleisha. Aleisha McCormack is an Australian, TV Presenter and Comedian, who has now moved to London and launched the Save the Date Wedding Podcast. She asked if she could interview me on the podcast about multicultural weddings! Before I said yes, I started listening to her podcast to check out her show, I was hooked so I immediately subscribed.
The podcast is usually around the 30 minute mark and varies from interviews with wedding planners, Q&A with Aleisha, meet the blogger episodes and more. It always makes me laugh, she is a comedian after all! As a new podcast, it is doing so well already and I am so pleased to be able to share my episode with you!
I headed over to Aleisha’s and we had a good old natter before starting the podcast. I was nervous. Sweating actually. For a few reasons. If anyone knows me, they know that I a) mumble, b) talk very fast when I get excited that you can’t understand what I’m saying and c) I laugh after everything I say. (I didn’t realise people noticed that until my friend mentioned it, cringe!) In addition to this, it was the first time I was talking about multicultural weddings and the depth of them. It’s fair enough when I go to a bloggers meet up and mention it there, but this is a new audience who may not like it! I understand that not everyone is going to agree with my views, which is fine, I don’t agree with some views out there but I don’t focus on that.
Thank you to Aleisha for having me (stalk her on twitter if you want @savethdatePC) and I hope you enjoy the episode, let me know what you think below!
