The Authentic NOW Podcast was born from a seedling, that grew and grew until could not be ignored any longer. It will be tended to and allowed to grow into full bloom.
A nudge from my creative soul shouted it was time to get out of my comfort zone and enter new podcasting waters.
I started True Talks with Taran in April 2019 and spoke about subjects I felt truly mattered – spirituality, money, yoga, and lifestyle. At the time I had a newborn, between naps and after bedtime, I would go to my laptop, record something, and post it out for people to listen to.
Podcasting is dear to my heart, I’ve listened to podcasts since I was 17, (I am now 30) when they weren’t known and talked about openly. I love that the opportunity is there where I can create a show people can listen to on long walks, in the shops, while driving, painting a canvas, or doing the dishes. That’s the beauty of podcasts – you can listen along anytime.
Fast forward to April 2020 and I now have a one-year-old. I happened to have a conversation with an old school friend about the podcast and a surprise conversation with a businesswoman, mother, and producer of a popular podcast. In truth, I felt stuck, I was able to talk alone, with family members though hadn’t branched out to guests due to excuses and fear.
As of writing this, the podcast has had over 400 listens and is featured on three platforms. I renamed the podcast Authentic NOW – in theme with my word of the year 2020 and a note to self, note to anyone, that being yourself in the here and now is powerful and doable.
The podcast is an ongoing project and I look forward to discovering the lives, wisdom and what works for others to live their most authentic self.
