Spotlight: Breaking The Fourth Wall with Jordan Gass-Poore
We’re back with an episode spot-lighting the heart of Pod People: our Community! This time we’re shining that spotlight on Jordan Gass-Poore. Much like many of you, her start in podcasts began in college radio. She went on to produce for the likes of Bloomberg, iHeartRadio, NPR, and CNN, and co-founded the women-led audio collective, Local Switchboard NYC. Jordan digs into her varied work experiences, the differences between working for an audio network vs an audio production house, how her love of horror films spawned a fun side project, and her ongoing struggle to hit a work-life balance.
This podcast is soooo helpful AND joyful!
Loving this pod. I trust all the information being provided, and I like the quality of the production, the length of the episodes (I would even listen to longer ones FYI!) the heart of the people making it, and Tyler’s humor and final tags give me life. I even like the theme music. I mean, what are you waiting for. Listen to these podcast industry pros.
Finger on the pulse!
Really appreciate the helpful advice. As a podcaster I find it really refreshing. (And funny too)
This is going to be great
This is awesome — looking forward to hearing more stories and especially the how-to’s
