Welcome back to Causepods everyone! Today our guest is Carolyn Kiel, who is the host of Beyond 6 Seconds and she is here to tell us all about her own journey since starting a podcast just over a year ago. Beyond 6 Seconds is focused on showcasing people’s unique stories and how they have learned from their situations. For Carolyn, the podcast is a great way to pass on information and underline the work and lessons that her circle of friends and guests can share. What started as a way to bring together her own interests, skills, and curiosity and help individuals she knew, has now become a great platform for the trading of ideas and personal narratives.
In our conversation we cover how the idea for the podcast has slowly evolved over the last year before talking about finding and securing guests. We also discuss themes and common threads that have cropped up through these interviews as well as the medium of podcasting and Carolyn’s technical tips for those considering starting their own. Carolyn shares her thoughts on promotion, goals, helpful resources, and even offers some information on her favorite social organization that she supports. For all this and more, be sure to join us!
