Have You Heard? is where the Pod Bible team meet the people behind the podcasts you may not have heard of yet. Reset Rebel has a very specific premise for interviewees, but the conversations will capture audiences interested in learning about creatives, musicians and entrepreneurs doing things a little bit differently. We caught up with host Joanna Youle…
Who are you and what’s your podcast about?
I’m Joanna Youle, I am an EX BBC 6 Music journalist and audio creative living on Ibiza. My podcast Ibiza- The Reset Rebel is about the rascals, rebels and rogues who live here and the ones how have reset the narrative of what the island is known for.
What was the first podcast you ever listened to?
I hate to say it but my own at 6 Music! I was making the BBC 6 MUSIC DAILY MUSIC NEWS DOWNLOAD and had to say that phrase every day!! ha ha!! It was a news round up podcast when podcasts began, right in the early stages of podcasts being born in the early 2000´s.
Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?
As I said, I was making podcasts for 6 Music back in the day when podcasting really started to become a thing and I could see quite quickly the power of them and the way listeners had become that little bit more discerning looking for content that was not spoon fed and I wished to tap into that and paint a picture of Ibiza as an island know for something other then parties!! There is so much more to the island, hearing peoples opinions of it when I travel is very frustrating!
Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?
The Diary of a CEO, The Awake at Night podcast, The Guilty Feminist, Ocean Matters and the Farmarama podcast.
Who’s your dream guest for the podcast?
Bahramji. I love his music and he fuses the path between the two worlds the collide in Ibiza with such amazing grace – the party one and the spiritual one.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt so far as a podcaster?
Not to give up. Even when you think no one is listening at the start, something magical happens that keeps you producing and you stay committed. You meet someone and have an amazing conversation or learn something life changing or find out about something happening you never would have or a historical fact about the island that make me love it even more.
Which episode would you say is the perfect introduction to your podcast?
The Reset Rebel celebrates 100 episodes – so No 100, as it is a taster of all the best guests and my favourite moments so far.
