Q & A with Civilla from Childless Not By Choice
When did you start podcasting?
I started podcasting in July 2015.
Why did you start podcasting?
I started podcasting because I needed help but could not find it. I was suffering on the inside while putting on a brave face for the world to see.
I was lonely although I had family and friends that loved me. And I felt like I could not be the only one.
What’s the name of your show and what is it about?
The name of my show is Childless not by Choice.
I speak to the childless not by choice community about how to live a life of relevance and joy though childless not by choice.
What’s your podcasting setup?
I literally use the same gear from day one.
- ATR2100 USB microphone.
- Audacity when recording monologues
- Zoom for the most part (sometimes Skype) when interviewing a guest.
- Apple earbuds
- A podcast producer
Newer additions to my software/hardware:
- Audio Technica ATH M30x headphones.
- Zoom Podtrak P4.
- Auphonic (used if I am recording something I do not necessarily need to send to my podcast producer.)
- Levelator (used if I am recording something I do not necessarily need to send to my podcast producer.)
How have you promoted your podcast?
I promote my podcast via social media channels like Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and LinkedIn. I also do Facebook Live, Instagram Stories and Reels.
Outside of social media I also promote by giving out business cards, and via word of mouth.
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
I wish I knew that it was a marathon, not a race and that as long as I continued learning I would continue to get better.
Sometimes what people see is not what one is feeling. Civila Morgan brings to light the internal struggle and pain of those who cannot have children. This emotional and educational podcast can be heard on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
