We’re on our way! The first ‘From the Inside’ Podcast episode recorded.

Today I completed the first podcast recording and what a learning curve!

The day started when I woke up at 3am suddenly aware of all of the details I’d previously overlooked. Things such as having two microphones, two sets of headphones, a laptop (rather than transporting my HP Envy Desktop PC!) and downloading audacity onto said laptop!

So with a head full of stress and anxiety, I went to the gym. Then I ‘borrowed’ my son’s laptop and headed to JB HiFi where I became the proud owner of two RODE microphones and pairs of comfy earphones. Then I headed to Jada’s house as nervous as I think I have ever been.

It took me a full hour to set up, downloading audacity onto my son’s laptop and setting up the microphones….ugh…details!

We talked about goal setting, life after love AND alcohol, what it feels like to be a grown up, accepting ourselves and others. We talked for ages whilst I fiddled with equipment and my only do-over wish would be to have captured all of that too! Lesson learned. And I’m sure there will be plenty more to come.

In the final analysis, we completed the recording and I packed up and left, in time for each of us to pick up our respective children from school. What a fabulous and fun beginning to the project! Two more recordings set to take place next week and at this time, I’m looking at beginning to drop one episode a week from Spring 2022.
