Podcast | Chatting with Casey

Last updated on April 13th, 2021 at 10:42 am

Chatting with Casey. The podcast that’s all about family, food, fashion and faith. And travel. And tech. And chatting with passionate people about the things that get them going every day.

I started the podcast after realising I couldn’t tell all the stories I wanted to share with the written word alone—I needed to put more life into them. Since video was still something I hadn’t really figured out, I pursued podcasting instead.

And much like the blog, the podcast started without any particular direction in mind—I just knew that I wanted to tell stories, and breaking bread with others with a few microphones between us felt like a good way to do it.

But I underestimated how difficult it is to run a podcast. Some episodes soon felt like work instead of the joy I usually got from the blog.

So after twenty-six episodes, I called the first season a wrap, hoping to take a little time before giving it a go for several episodes more in the season ahead.

But it turns out the time I needed would be years and not months, giving me the time to grow and understand why I wanted to do it.

Apparently, I wanted to do more than help other people share their stories. I wanted compelling conversations about topics I was passionate about, too, and started work on a vastly improved approach for Chatting with Casey, season two.
