Stories of my Life- A podcast

I finally figured out how to make a proper podcast recording and not end it up being a crappy cut version on youtube…!

I actually heard about an app used for recording and distributing podcasts- Anchor, because they sponsored one of my favourite Podcasts…And it’s pretty awesome! I am not super good with it..but so far have been able to publish my podcast and also it has some built-in ability to add background music to the podcasts…It also helped me create the small thumbnail for the podcast too… Anyways, if you are interested in making your podcast- download the Anchor App from your App Store. ๐Ÿ™‚

Or when you check out my podcast, you can easily join up as well. Please check it out here…!

Stories of my Life

I have no set schedule for uploads as of yet… I think it will be as random or even more random as the updates on this blog…

I am going to be talking about events in my life that have impacted me to become the person I am today. My vision for the podcast is that I will eventually get other people on the podcast and have conversations or interviews with them! I’ll see how I go first…

Podcast Reviews: Stories I tell on dates

So I recently binged listened (is that even a thing) to a podcast called “Stories I tell on Dates”- an interesting autobiography by Paul Shirley who was previously an NBA player.

I am not sure if it was his voice..or the stories or a combination of both…it sucked me in right from the introduction! What I loved was that he turned everyday experiences into fascinating -on-the-edge thrill type stories. He seemed to have gone through a lot of different things in his childhood and early adulthood…but haven’t we all? I have friends who have travelled the world like a nomad, are semi-professional pole dancers, have colleagues who have worked in emergency departments and been assaulted… There are so many people I encounter with so many stories…I almost feel overwhelmed just thinking about the sheer amount of stories that people hold.

I truly do not believe anyone is boring. Yes, their personality might put you off..but if language and personality wasn’t an issue, I think I would be able to befriend anyone. Not saying I have good personality skills or anything…but I think everyone has a story and there are only so many stories that are told for everyone to hear. Big props for Paul Shirley for sharing his story to the world…He let us into his deepest darkest secrets and thoughts…as a side bonus, I have also learnt a lot more about basketball, basketball injuries, and random places in America that I will now add to my bucket list to visit. If you haven’t already, I highly encourage to check out his podcast…I believe it is found on iTunes, Spotify, and on other podcast listening apps!

After finishing the whole podcast series in less than 48 hours…I feel somewhat inspired to start recording my own podcasts now…I have never thought about telling my story before…to be absolutely honest,  I hate the sound of my own voice! It makes me cringe listening to it…But, I think maybe that is a common occurrence? Because we don’t normally hear ourselves speak..I am sure our voices aren’t as bad as it seems…?

Telling a story with a voice is similar to I guess writing about it…but I guess it feels more natural…in a way, because you cannot delete (well I guess you can edit) what you say and you go more with the flow of things! I think I might take a small break from my studying and record my first podcast about a story of my life…

… edit if you want to check out my first snippet of life recording..
