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.
