It seems like many people used the COVID-19 Quarantine to re-evaluate their current trajectory, and try new things. As I always say, every situation is an opportunity.
Forging Flame was born of my long-time interest in the creative process. I’ve always been infatuated with behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews where artists go deep on their creative process.
I looked for pre-existing podcasts on the subject but I couldn’t find anything completely satisfying. So I decided to “scratch my own itch”, and on July 2nd, 2020, with the help of my Co-Host Nick Hinton, Forging Flame was born. We amassed over 1,300 downloads in our first week!
I am managing 100% of the production and branding for this podcast, and I designed the value-first content marketing strategy. I created the logo, website, branding, and I record/edit/produce every single podcast.
