Have You Heard? is where the Pod Bible team meet the people behind the podcasts you may not have heard of yet. This time, we’re speaking to Atavia and Laura about their new podcast, Teaching My Friend Nutrition…
Who are you and what’s your podcast about?
Atavia: Atavia Minoudis, Nutritional Therapist (Extraordinaire, as Laura says!) Teaching My Friend Nutrition about teaching Nutrition in a way that is entertaining and engaging- I teach Laura topics she is interested in, and then I hear her thoughts on life’s deep and meaningful’s in return (like would you date a guy who owned a guinea pig_
Laura: Laura Bennett, enquiring mind and singer/songwriter. And the podcast is about Nutrition, education and random topics of my choosing!
What was the first podcast you ever listened to?
Atavia: Redhanded true crime podcast.
Laura: Mine was How Do You Cope by Elis and John with badly drawn boy about mental health.
Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?
Atavia: I’ve always wanted to find a platform to teach people nutrition in a way that is relevant and entertaining. So many people are interested in how to take control of their health but find a lot of information out there quite dry. I wanted to format it in a way people would enjoy.
Laura: For fun but we realised the world needed to hear!
Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?
Atavia: Dr Chattergee’s Feel Better Live More. But also the RedHanded podcast hosts- they’ve built a community and business from their passion, I think that’s so inspiring.
Who’s your dream listener for the podcast?
Atavia: Honestly anyone who feels empowered to make changes and improvements to their health and wellbeing after listening- Leonardo Dicaprio wouldn’t go a miss though.
Laura: Steve Coogan!
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt so far as a podcaster?
Atavia: Definitely agree with Laura’s answer! Also, that it is important to have the right balance of information and humour, it’s a fine line.
Laura: Try not to talk over each other 😂🤣
You’ve just started, tell us why you chose the topic you did for the first episode?
Atavia: Caffeine is quite a popular topic- a lot of people have opinions on it and it’s relatable to a lot of listeners, as many of us consume it on a regular basis.
Laura: We’d already done a few but had tweaked our formula and the Caffeine episode was one of our favourites.
Where can the Pod Bible readers find out more about you?
Laura: By listening to the podcast where we reference our own life experiences and @teaching_my_friend_nutrition on Instagram.
Atavia: Definitely by listening to the podcast – they can also read more about us both on my website atavianutrition.com, and by following us on our brand new Instagram page.
