Welcome to show 57 of the Content Champion Podcast, in this episode I’m bringing you something special and a little bit different. I recently took part in a world record breaking 36 six hour podcast hosted by Mike and Izabela Russell - founders of New Media Europe and the UK Podcasters community. I was one of 36 guest speakers over the mega two day event - and chatted with Mike about how to grow trust and authority through podcasting.

It was a huge honour to be asked to take part and I really enjoyed the whole event - which was streamed live on Blab, a great platform that I’m going to be exploring much more now I've used it. So, if you want to hear me on the other side of the mic for the first time, let’s dive in…

Story of The Show

​The event was organised to raise awareness of independent UK podcasters, and also to show businesses how podcasting can help build their online brand. The whole show was an incredible success and it was great fun to be involved - although I still don't know how Mike managed to stay awake for the full 36 hours!

I took a screenshot of me and Mike on Blab recording my segment of the show, to give you a feel for how the setup works, and how listeners can interact and ask questions throughout the audio/video presentation. Blab is a superb new platform, and opens up so many avenues for visual podcasting and live presentation that you really should check it out as an innovative way to engage with your target audience.
