*Disclosure - This podcast has been up and running since September 2019. However, it was started in a bit of a hurry and without a lot of knowledge. We are now going back to learn everything we can, rebrand, and refocus our efforts into making it a success. I have changed the First Four Episode section to our potential Next Four Episodes.
Title: The Help! Podcast
Artwork Cover: Working file of the direction we're going in for the new branding. Not fully complete at this stage, but getting closer to where we want to be.
Target Audience: Our Target Audience is composed of young professional women and some men who are deeply interested in personal growth but may find it hard to find an entry point into the discussion. They range in age from 20-40 and they are heavy podcast listeners who choose to support podcasts monetarily through sponsored purchases and Patreon donations. They are interested in the human condition (specifically the comedy of it) and enjoy hearing other peoples' stories about their journeys through personal development. They appreciate humor, story-telling, and being a part of a bigger community and picture.
Description: Being a human is HARD, fam. Stevie and Brooke have a combined 57 years of experience in personal set-backs, anxiety, self-sabotaging behavior, and utilizing awkward humor to smooth it all over. Join in every Thursday as they share personal stories about everything from bad dates to failed career choices to big time personal growth wins. If you're tired of stocking up on self-help books with nothing to show for it, this podcast is for you. If you are looking for a way to get involved in the mental health conversation but don't know where to start, this podcast is for you. If you need to hear other people's struggles to confirm that you can move forward despite your own, this podcast is for you. Subscribe and follow The Help! Podcast on social media to join the community that is taking self-help, turning it over, and showing you the dirty underbelly that you don't always see. None of us are perfect but we are in this together and that, my friends, is something pretty close to perfect.
Next Four Episodes:
1. Intro to Human Design with DayLuna
(Guests: Dana Stiles and Shayna Cornelius (hosts of the DayLuna Human Design Podcast))
In this episode, my co-host (Stevie) and I would interview Dana and Shayna, asking them to give the background on friendship, what started their journey into studying Human Design, how that practice has positively affected their lives, and tips/tricks on how our listeners can find out more.
2. Patreon Episode: Human Design Readings
(Guests: Dana Stiles and Shayna Cornelius)
Part of the DayLuna business model is to give people Human Design readings. We would have Dana and Shayna conduct short readings on us and make this episode available for Patreon only - because the material would be a little more personal, and it's a good way for people to find out more about what to expect from a reading with DayLuna. In my mind, it works well as a co-branding effort.
3. Help! What Is Spirituality and Is It For Me? (this is a title structure that we've been toying with. My thought is that it puts the title in the framework of the reader's perspective, rather than just regurgitating a topic out to them. However, I'm definitely not an expert and I would love some feedback on whether or not you think it would be a good structure.)
(Not a guest episode)
In this episode, we would give a brief but detailed understanding of spirituality. Following that, each of us would do a 15 minute story-telling style report on our personal perspectives on the subjects, discuss what the self-help experts say, and share our stories on how it's manifested itself in our lives - whether positively or negatively.
4. Sex (this is basically what we've been doing so far - without the above title structure)
(Not a guest episode)
In this episode, we would give a brief and detailed understanding of sex in our culture. Following that, each of us would do a 15 minute story-telling style report on how we have grown over the last couple of years when it comes to knocking boots, a romp in the sheets, etc. In those reports, we would discuss what some self-help books/experts say, what we've recently come to realize about the topic, how we came to those realizations, and how we're bringing that new knowledge further.
