In case you missed it, we launched our very own podcast network, Unedited Stories, back in September, with Purity Talks and Nothing to Declare being the first to join the family, and more recently The Black Magic Podcast. Growing the network was always part of our vision, and we’re pleased to announce that we have recently added two new podcasts to our roster – Tag Me In and Dreamer’s Disease
If you’ve been keeping up-to-date with Unedited news, you’ll know that these two podcasts have been on our radar for a while. We met Anton and Ola (Tag Me In) and Alex (Dreamer’s Disease) in August during our podcast surgery at SO Live Fest [link], and have been keeping a close eye on what the guys have been up to ever since. Here’s a little bit more about them and why we wanted to have them on board…
The tagline for this podcast is ‘hearing the stories of inspirational people’, and it’s something that Alex Manzi has managed to deliver flawlessly thus far. He gets to the heart of what makes his guests tick, revealing what has motivated them on their journey and what advice they would offer to those following in their footsteps.
We worked alongside Alex to produce episode 16 of Dreamer’s Disease, an insightful interview with Ben Anderson of Musicalize. What we admired during this process was Alex’s attention to detail across the board, whether it was feedback on the final audio edit, or episode artwork. Nothing about Dreamer’s Disease is done for the sake. Alex is passionate about inspiring people to do their best, and that’s exactly the kind of vibe we wanted to bring to our network.
Tag Me In
We’ve worked with a lot of presenter duos in our time, and very few can boast the genuine connection that Anton and Ola have. This authenticity is what makes their take on personal development all the more relatable; they are just a couple of guys talking through life’s challenges like any friends would.
Each episode explores a different topic in depth, and they’ve covered everything from why people cheat, gratitude and appreciation, to grieving, financial education and the sexualisation of black men. No matter the subject, Anton and Ola approach it without the pretence that is often associated with personal development; they are real. To get a better idea of their process, we got in the studio with them to produce an episode about managing conflict. It gave us great insight into how the guys work, and why their content is so engaging.
We’re really excited about these collaborations, so keep an eye out for what are sure to be some amazing episodes.
