Sara Tasker shares the story behind her podcast, Hashtag Authentic
Sara Tasker and the power of podcasts
I got into podcasts when my daughter started school – it was a twenty minute drive over the hills to drop her off each day, and suddenly I had time to listen to things by myself. Discovering podcasts for women like me was a huge revelation – it felt like having a friend sat next to me, talking about the problems we shared. I already had a big audience on my Instagram and blog, so I immediately saw the potential for creating my own podcast. I’d met so many amazing creatives through my business already, so I knew right away who to bring onto the show. I reached out to people who inspire me in my work, and I can tell it’s a great episode when I’ve learnt a ton just recording it. The strategy shows get the most downloads, but it’s the episodes where we get vulnerable, covering self doubt or mental health, that really get people talking. I hope Hashtag Authentic is a reminder we can be messy and incomplete, but still put ourselves out there and make our creative dreams come true.
it’s the episodes where we get vunerable that get people talking
