Q & A with Angela from And Then Suddenly | One Moment
When did you think about starting a podcast?
I started in 2015 as a producer and editor for an environmental podcast.
Why did you start podcasting?
I was a playwright and podcasting felt a lot like theater. It was editing text, creating mood with transitions and sounds, and exploring big life topics.
What’s the name of your show and what is it about?
I’m the one woman band behind the And Then Suddenly podcast.
On my show, I talk to a diverse group of guests about one moment that turned their lives upside down. The catch is I can’t know about it until we meet.
What’s your podcast set up?
For hardware, in my at-home studio I use a Samsung Q2U microphone.
For an in person interview, I use two RODE smartLav+ connected to a Zoom H1n.
When it comes to software I use Audacity and Garageband.
How have you promoted your podcast?
I’ve also sent episodes to organizations that might be interested in the theme of specific conversations. I’ve gotten some nice boosts from that.
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
Focus on the content and not the podcast download numbers.
It takes the joy out of the experience; podcasting is hard work but being able to have big life conversations with guests is amazing.
Angela Santillo wanted to know how people react when their life changes in a heartbeat. In this wildly relatable podcast we see what people do in these improbable circumstances. These off-the-cuff conversations are heartfelt and hilarious at times. Go listen as quickly as possible on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
Sometimes a podcast is just a conversation that we want to have with different people. Or a way to learn how to deal with this complicated life we are living. Angela Santillo wanted to know how people react to unlikely situations … she hits “record” not knowing what people are going to say. Do you see yourself sharing life moments like these?
