Power of the Podcast
Auditory information awesomeness.
Podcasts are available everywhere. You can be a big business pushing the latest USP and industry news, a collective offering knowledge and guidance, or a sole vigilante, venting your anger towards totalitarianism and ‘the machine’!
Everyone with a mic and mixing desk is jumping on the bandwagon to have their voices heard and why not? It’s another great way to get your message across. Not only does it offer the creator the time to stop and think about what’s important to them, but it also provides the listener with another angle and viewpoint to issues and information they’d previously not thought about – knowledge is power.
They’re inspiring, contemplative and often hilarious and we love them.
Over the coming months, we’ll be looking to start our own podcast. Too many times have discussions taken place in the studio whereupon reflection, we’d wished we’d recorded, archived and shared our ramblings – more on this soon… but for now, here’s a quick rundown of some of the podcasts we’re listening to. Get subscribing!
The Creative Boom Podcast:
If you’re an artist, designer, illustrator or photographer, whether you freelance, have a side project or work for someone else, The Creative Boom Podcast is full of fun and honest conversations with creative people from all over the world. Wonderfully hosted by Katy Cowan, founder and editor of Creative Boom, the podcast offers an often rare insight into the creative domain.
The Blindboy Podcast:
Hosted by Blindboy, of the Rubber Bandits. An eclectic podcast containing short fiction, interviews, comedy, daftness and more often than not, a great insight into mental health and social issues. He’s also just been given his own programme on BBC Three: Blindboy Undestroys the World – definitely worth a watch.
