Last week I was invited to sit down with Amanda and Patrick from Sociphoria and join in on their podcast. This duo has amazing chemistry and make their listeners feel like they’re part of the conversation. They tackle topics from Pokemon to happiness to dealing with people who are getting the best of you – they have their own witty spin on each topic and make it easy for the listener to think hey, I’ve been there too!
We recorded two podcasts, one about the emotional effects of social media and the other about making compromises. As we sat close together, huddled around a tiny microphone I completely forgot about what we were doing and had two of the most honest and thought-provoking conversations I’ve had in a long time.
Am I the only one who forgets what it’s like to have a conversation with someone without simultaneously scrolling through your Instagram feed? I had my phone beside me but didn’t bother looking at it. Instead I focussed on the people beside me and the thoughts bouncing around in my head. I felt free, conscious, and confident in the words that came out of my mouth. I remembered for an instant what it is like to have your voice heard, to be listened to, to have an opinion. Too often I focus on the written word and I’m glad that this podcast experience reminded me that my vocals are powerful too.
