Apologies for the long hiatus and lack of updates about the Ice Cream for Everyone Podcast! I took a few months off publishing for the show after one recording didn't work the way I wanted and then I've been traveling in the United States for the past few months. Now I'm settling in Chicago it's about time I update you with what's happening.
The other main point to this update is to share the elevator pitch of what the Ice Cream for Everyone Podcast is all about. A friend told me the show seemed to lack a main theme or topic, so I thought about it and this is what I came up with:
Ice cream comes in many exciting flavours, and so does creativity. When creating, we use our existing knowledge, experiences, inspiration, intuition and flair to create newly.
I find the process of what and how human beings create endlessly fascinating.
In the Ice Cream for Everyone Podcast I have candid conversations with creative professionals to talk about their lives, explore where their ideas, creations and designs come from, what inspires them and how they shape that in the variety of activities and careers they take on.
I might tweak and refine this first version though for now it encapsulates the way I see the show and the reason I publish it pretty well. Naturally the kinds of guests i've had on the show so far and will likely keep having operate and create in areas I'm interested and have on my radar, hence featuring guests in advertising, gaming and design for example.
Thank you for your patience with the show, future updates are coming and of course I'm always happy to have recommendations for guests you think I could be reaching out to and have a recorded conversation with as well.
Hi everyone! This has been silent for a little bit too long, sorry for the delay! I'm getting back on track and to finally kick off the second season of the Ice Cream for Everyone Podcast I've prepared a little summer report. I tested my Zoom H5 digital recorder while in Chicago in July and I've (badly) edited a few bits and pieces - the best of what I could salvage out of amateurish and pretty bad recordings.
I'm also summing up the upcoming episodes. One of the reasons I'm late with the podcast is that I've started a new full time role and I've been getting into the swing of the new job and meanwhile had a bit less time for the podcast unfortunately. I still recorded in September and have some exciting episodes coming up in the next few weeks.
Apologies for some of the sound quality for outdoor recordings, I'm still learning.
A few links to information mentioned:
I've prepared a demo clip of several snippets of the first season of the Ice Cream for Everyone Podcast, this is perfect if you want to get a sense of the podcast without spending too much time on it.
Edited snippets are from the following published episodes:
As I've mentioned in the past couple of weeks I'm wrapping up the first official season of the Ice Cream for Everyone Podcast! To complete the season I thought it would be great to circle back with my good friends Adam Cohen, Lauren Giblin and James d'Souza some of you may remember I recorded the very first episode with.
We talked about the progress of the show over the past of the 30 episodes I recorded without them, update what they've been up to over the past 10 months or so since the last recording, how their podcast listening habits changed and everything about the Ice Cream for Everyone podcast. We talked about the choice of intro music, my intros, comments and feedback about the way I ask questions in interviews, the kind of guests I have on the show, the direction for the future of the show and of course we finished with a few ice cream related questions.
The episode is long enough as it is so I haven't added any intro / outro bits though of course and as usual please share the episode with friends if you've enjoyed it or even better please give the show a rating and a review on iTunes (or via your iPhone podcast app)!
I mention The Podcast Movement conference during the episode and I am attending! In fact, I'm writing this post with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan in Chicago where the conference takes place next week. I'm really looking forward to it! While I take a summer break and figure out the next season I'll be publishing shorter in between season sessions with a few thoughts of what's going on so stay tuned.
