mypodcast

Welcome to my 2018 podcast line up. I started podcasting way back a decade or more ago, but as I do so much blogging but not always having enough time to do Video as I’d like, audio sits nicely in the middle. I spend two hours a day in the car, so I use these two hours to reflect, talk about my projects, how I handled certain things, experiences I’ve had, then I record it and upload it so you can listen to it too!

Each episode is thirty minutes long so ideal for the morning commute or during your lunch time gym session maybe. I started these as a way of getting some quick thoughts down, I don’t always have time to blog, I wanna’ get my intent across in how I do things and I also find it all a bit cathartic. I do these from my car, utilising that time to hopefully provide some good content for other PM’s.
