Have You Heard? is where the Pod Bible team meet the people behind the podcasts you may not have heard of yet. While the Oh. My. Pod. section in the magazine gives a quick shout out to shows of that ilk, Have You Heard? aims to go deeper in an effort to spread awareness for shows that deserve more exposure! We recently spoke to Jay Ludgrove from GLProUK about hosting The Jaily Show on the GLCast.
Who are you and what’s your podcast about?
Hi, I’m Jay Ludgrove the managing director of GLProUK a podcast content creation agency and the host of The Jaily Show. Each week we sit down with business leaders and talk about marketing, leadership, mental health, marketing, social media, content creation and whatever else comes to mind.
What was the first podcast you ever listened to?
The first time I ever heard of “podcasting” was about 8 years ago when my now-business partner Tony asked me to host a podcast he had started. I quickly did some research and found that one of my favourite film directors from my childhood, Kevin Smith, had started multiple podcasts! The first show I listened to was Jay & Silent Bob Get Old, I had no idea how varied podcast subjects could possibly be back then!!
Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?
To be honest my best friend and I were working pretty full on corporate jobs and podcasting was a brilliant excuse to see each other once a week and interview the most amazing people. Off the back of that first podcast we now run an international podcast production company GLProUK and have helped hundreds of podcasts launch over the last 6 years.
Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?
Most of the podcast I listen to personally are either comedy of business based shows. I’m a huge fan of Brian G Burns The Brutal Truth About Sales and I love Joe Rogan’s long form interview style but its hard to pin down one particular podcast.
Who’s your dream guest for the podcast?
I’d have to say Bill Burr. I’d probably be a terrible host as I would be laughing so much as Bill has a direct line to my funny bone but that would be an epic guest!
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt so far as a podcaster?
Podcast has really taught me a lot, after interviewing so many people I have learned how to listen more actively and how to help a conversation continue without interrupting your guests flow. Ultimately podcasting has allowed me to have conversations with incredible people that I would have otherwise have had a reason to speak too. Its been an amazing journey and a phenomenal experience to learn from such a variety of interesting people.
Which episode would you say is the perfect introduction to your podcast?
The next one. Our show is focused on finding out about our guests and digging into their thoughts on the world around them, which means every episode really is completely different from the next.
Where can the Pod Bible readers find out more about you?
You can find me @JayLudgrove on all the major platforms, our podcast is available by searching GL Cast, or on YouTube by searching for GLProUK. We love talking to podcasters from those who have been doing this for ever to those looking to launch a new show so if you have any questions around podcast production or how to launch a podcast from scratch then please get in touch.
