WOWpod was born of the idea that, as people move through their life, they develop wisdom, defined by the online Oxford Learner's Dictionary as being "the ability to make sensible decisions and give good advice because of the experience and knowledge that you have".


Those in prominent positions - politicians, media personalities, etc - usually have a channel through which they can impart their wisdom to the masses. But what about the real people - the grandparents, the parents, the business people, the people who live quiet lives in your community? Surely, there is a massive untapped source of what we might describe as "the people's wisdom".


So that's why we established WOWpod - to find and share the people's wisdom.WOWpod is a podcast - in fact, the name is the shortened version of The Words Of Wisdom Podcast. The podcast will be a collection of conversations with a range of people - some well-known, others not so much. Each conversation will go for around 15-20 minutes and will follow a similar format:


* A few minutes introducing our guest - where they were born, what they do for a living, etc


* A discussion based on three to five statements of wisdom introduced by our guest.


* Some fast facts which we'll ask each of our guests - favourite holiday destination, favourite eatery, etc.


We don't think that we'll change the world by presenting these words of wisdom in each episode but you just don't know what you might learn ...

Mull'n It Over ,

Average Jane and Plain are far more interesting!

I think this is a brilliant concept, giving a voice to the “every day” person’s wisdom rather than hearing from the ubiquitous management gurus and business rockstars.

I wallow in it’s authenticity and revel in the human stories of triumph. In some small way we are all management gurus et al without the big PR budget. Neil gives his interviewees around 45 minutes of fame, triple what Andy Warhol predicted. Worth a listen every now and then to keep us grounded.

A wonderful podcast

Well produced but more importantly really interesting content. Love hearing what everyday people have to say about life. Well done Neil and team!

WOW! What a great find!

I’m always a believer that everyone has something meaningful to share and/or are interesting once you scratch the surface. Sadly in life sometimes we forget to take the time to do so, which is why I love this podcast - it’s been an awesome find. A simple premise but always inspiring!
