I mentioned last week that I had the opportunity to be involved in a local podcast interview. I was approach by my friend Jason at the farmer’s market in the fall about the possibility of coming on his show and my first reaction was, ‘Why me?’. I mean, I don’t really think I’m that important. I’m just a working, full time mom with a passion for fitness and my city who writes a blog that has evolved from personal musings to what it is today. I sometimes am really surprised by the number of people that actually read this thing on a regular basis aside from my parents and my best friend. Thank you everyone that reads this by the way, including my friend Sarah’s dentist. It’s crazy to me that people in the city view me as a person of influence. So to be interviewed amongst other public figures I look up to locally just seemed like a bizarre concept.
I may have been slightly bribed into the podcast with the promise of wine and fun and so I reluctantly agreed. I was nervous that I wouldn’t know what to say and clam up, which often happens when I am feeling shy. I was glad to learn I would be interviewed alongside another buddy of mine from my favourite food truck in the city. It ended up feeling more like I was having great discussion with friends over a drink, which is exactly what it was, just that it was recorded for anyone and everyone to hear. Yikes. I definitely had a few moments where I immediately regretted saying what I did (I like to think I’m too cute for radio…../facepalm). There are other points I wish I had the chance to elaborate on. I definitely was not as eloquent and intelligent as some previous guests (*coughMarycoughJoshcough*), but I had fun and enjoyed the conversation that developed, both on and off air.
Would I change some things? Maybe. Would I do it again? Absolutely.
If anyone is interested in taking a listen and laughing at the ridiculous things I say, you can check it out here or on iTunes and search the latest episode there. Beware, there is some choice language so perhaps don’t listen to this at the office or with your grandmother.
Big thanks to Jason for having me on and Richard for being my nervous sidekick. Can’t wait for the next episode.
