Rob Moore started the Disruptors Podcast back in 2016 and soon grew it to the UK largest business podcast. Since then, Rob has become a prolific podcaster, and is also the creator and host of the Money podcast. But we wanted to learn more about where it all started…
Who are you and what’s your podcast about?
I’m Rob Moore – Entrepreneur, Investor, Author, Podcaster and two-time Public Speaking World Record Holder. My show is a mix of disruptive content and unedited interviews with the likes of Russell Kane, Caitlyn Jenner, Peter Schiff and Jordan Belfort.
What’s the first podcast you ever listened to?
Joe Rogan’s interview with James Hetfield of Metallica. I love rock music, & loved the hybrid, voyeuristic nature of education, information, biography and entertainment.
Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?
When I started, not many people were podcasting. As a broadcaster I’m always looking for new ways to reach people to fulfil my mission of getting better financial education out to the world. As the author or ‘Life Leverage’ I’m always looking for life hacks, so while everyone else was listening to music in the gym & I had podcasts on, on 2x speed. And podcasting is the perfect cathartic outlet for all the lack of attention I received as a child and FAR cheaper than therapy.
Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?
Masters of Scale by Reid Hoffman. Joe Rogan’s interviews with rock and metal frontmen and women. Any long form interviews with ‘Disruptors’.
Who’s your dream guest for the podcast?
Arnold Schwarzenegger or Ricky Gervais. As I can’t decide we can record a 3 way conversation at my house together.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt so far as a podcaster?
I’ll give you two:
1. Do NOT talk. The less you say, the better the interview. The interviews are NOT about the interviewer, far too many interviewers want to be the guest.
2. Do NOT build rapport. Everyone tells you to do that, but you want to get straight in and have an edge to the interview. An unknown element; feeling each other out. Drama.
Which episode would you say is the perfect introduction to your podcast?
Probably my interview with Caitlyn Jenner. It has a bit of everything in it, & she’s quite shocked in places too. Plus she flirts with me a bit and I don’t know what to do about that.
Where can the Pod Bible readers find out more about you?
