Our New Podcast - Throw Starfish Episode 000
A while ago Ruth, Pennie and myself happened upon the idea of doing a Podcast together; we all often find ourselves on a stage, in front of an audience, microphone or camera talking to people and thought that a conversational style podcast from our three perspectives...which each happen to be a decade apart...might be interesting enough to listen to!
As is often the way with a new project, it took us a while to research and figure out how you go about setting-up, recording and publishing a podcast, but we seemed to figure it out pretty well, which just left us with the toughest conundrum of what to call it!
