Podcaster Stories

Podcaster Stories

We listen to our favourite podcasts, but don’t always get to know the people behind the voices of the shows we listen to. Podcaster Stories looks to change that. I’m Danny Brown, and I’ve met many people who’ve shared their stories of overcoming adversity, like abuse, cancer, life-changing accidents, and more. Their stories inspired me to start Podcaster Stories. Each episode will have a conversation with podcasters across the world, and share their story – what motivates them, why they started their show, how they grew their show, and more. We’ll also get to hear their personal stories, and how that’s shaped them to be the person they are today. Billed as “a must listen for podcast lovers”, and highly rated for its excellent research and conversational style, Podcaster Stories is the show for you if you’re looking to know more about the people behind the voice.

Not only that, but it would be an interview-style show with fellow podcasters, many of whom had interview shows of their own. So, to say I was a little nervous would be an understatement! But, 12 months on, I'm enjoying it as much as ever, and have som...
