#172: Confessions of a Podcast Host – Greg Gazin & Ryan Levesque

The Toastmasters Podcast with Bo Bennett, Ryan Levesque, and Greg Gazin
The Toastmasters Podcast is like a radio talkshow featuring interviews with Toastmasters usually featured in the Toastmaster magazine. But unlike a radio show, a podcast is on the Internet, and available, for free, to anyone in the world with an Internet connection, and a connected device capable of playing audio.

[29:12] Kicking off the new year with a lighthearted yet informative episode, Toastmasters Podcast hosts Greg Gazin and Ryan Levesque lay their cards on the table in Confessions of a Podcast Host.


Podcasting experienced significant growth in 2020, perhaps due in part to time spent at home and in quarantine. For Toastmasters, the Level 4 elective in Pathways - Create a Podcast, may have sparked interest or curiosity as well. Some Toastmasters have started their own podcasts; others might be a little hesitant. Instead of simply offering tips and tricks gathered over nearly three decades of combined podcasting experience, the hosts opted to offer a few chuckles at their expense and share examples of lessons learned from their mistakes, missteps and miscues.

You can also find the article, Is there a Podcast in your Future, in the January 2021 issue of the Toastmaster Magazine. And if you have a peek at the cover you may just see a picture of your humble co-hosts.
