At the start of the year, I wrote about making sure that 2015 would be the year that we all get out there and do That Thing. The thing that we’ve been putting off, that we keep daydreaming about and saying we’ll get around to doing. Today, I am super excited to share mine with you – a brand new creative project that officially launches RIGHT NOW…
Here’s something you may not know about me: I used to do radio. Yup! I studied radio broadcasting as part of my University degree, and for two years I even wrote, produced and presented my own show on campus radio. And the truth is, I’ve really missed it! Over the last year or two I’ve been toying with the idea of doing something fun with recording again, and I can now reveal that the result is Those Gals – a new podcast!
So, let me tell you a little more about what exactly Those Gals is and what you can expect. I’ve teamed up with my bestie, Elaine, and together we have created and recorded a show that we hope will reflect the kind of laid-back conversations that you have with your girlfriends. We’ve been hanging out for 14 years, and when we get together, we always have a blast – and talk about EVERYTHING.
On the show we’ll gab about all of the things that we find interesting, silly or feel passionate about. From fashion to pop culture, to friendship, to those what-the-eff moments and more! In our first episode, we go back in time to when we first met, what things were like back then and how it has all shaped us into the gals we are today.
It was after spending a lot of time listening to podcasts that I realised this was the kind of platform I had been looking for. Podcasting allows me to start playing around with recording again – AND it was right under my nose the whole time!
We hope that you’ll give Those Gals a try on your next commute, when you’re relaxing or whenever you normally listen to something (I listen to my favourite podcasts while cleaning the house – strange but true!). We promise that we don’t take anything too seriously and if we can make you smile, laugh or say “I so remember that!” then that’s amazing too.
Those Gals has been approved by iTunes, and you can find our first episode HERE!
It feels awesome to be doing something that I’ve been thinking about for so long – and to be creating it with my closest friend makes it even sweeter! If there’s something you’ve been meaning to do (no matter how big or small), now is the perfect time to get started, sunshine!
Sharing this new and exciting step with you guys today is pretty much the best way I could ever think of to start a new week! I feel like dancing on the ceiling – eat your heart out, Lionel Ritchie!
Oh – what a feeling…
