why Podcasting works

"There are a lot of production houses out there, but most have no journalistic experience or are led by a tired team that just wants to get the job done as opposed to proactively involving themselves in what is being created. There's a massive chasm between the two types of companies and it ultimately affects the output. We certainly had our fair share of misses before we met Erin and Dave."

- Ujwal Arkalgud, CEO, Motivbase
Shows: Why Meaning matters, The NEXT Normal

Dave and Erin are among the most intelligent journalists and podcasters I’m aware of. While each of their four co-hosts was an internationally recognized expert in their particular field, Dave and Erin showed an uncanny ability to pull together the disparate thoughts for the listeners. And, they provided their own ideas and insights as a complementary extension of the ideas shared by the co-hosts. This was a great characteristic of the show. Coming up with excellent questions so as to get the best out of people with diverse backgrounds is not easy, but Dave and Erin excelled in their ability to pull it off.

We won’t say the word duo, but we will say dynamic. Together, we have a combined 60+ years in radio, production, news-media, on mic and in studios. We are confident enough to say we are not your average podcasters.

We saw the writing on the wall for mainstream media decades ago. Faith in 'the way it's always been done' is waning and the pandemic only served to deepen those feelings. The data to back up the shifts towards on-demand audio is incontrovertible. Advertisers and thought leaders are moving away from traditional media towards NEW media to get their messages out to the world.

At the onset of the pandemic, more and more clients started asking about podcasts and we listened, producing more than a dozen podcast series in 2020 alone ....

 Shows: the 2030 project

"The 2030 Project was a success because thousands more know more about the systemic causes of, and social policy solutions to address poverty. That happened because Dave Trafford did his homework listening to the people affected by poverty, and experts in the field. From there, his natural curiosity resulted in impactful questions and dialogue."
