I’m celebrating 2 full years in podcasting today (January 21, 2022). If you’re new to the show, WELCOME! This is a great episode to start with! In this episode, I share a little bit about me, some history about this podcast (when and why I started it, who it’s for, and what I want listeners to do with the information), some of the struggles I’ve worked through in the first two years of the podcast, and what’s coming up as I begin my third year in podcasting.
Mentioned in this episode
Muscle tension dysphonia and treatment with voice therapy
NaPodPoMo = National Podcast Post Month (an annual challenge in November)
Highlights from the episode
I am a pharmacist, voice actor, podcast host, wife, mom of 2 teenaged boys, and a volunteer.
Why did I start a podcast? I started The Pharmacist’s Voice Podcast for three reasons: Dr. Erin L. Albert suggested I look into starting a podcast; the podcast works as a branding tool; and the podcast helps me network.
Who is my intended audience? Pharmacists, pharmacy students, pharmacy technicians, and voice actors in the medical space.
What do I want you to do with the information in this podcast? The number one thing I want you to do is BE INSPIRED TO USE YOUR VOICE! That means, I want you to feel inspired to use your expertise/your passion for something that you feel is worthwhile. Please note that I am not the voice of the pharmacy profession. This podcast is not about me trying to position myself as the voice of the pharmacy profession. I want to inspire people to use their voices.
The 4 main things I struggle with are carrying the conversation all by myself on solo shows (because I’m a reactor, not a generator), finding time to podcast, audio engineering, and voice issues, like muscle tension dysphonia and losing my voice after a cold.
Coming up in 2022, I will continue to publish one episode/week. There will be solo shows and interview shows. I plan to do more series, and I hope to participate in NaPodPoMo.
