In episode 1 of season 2 of Podcaster Stories, I sit down with Jenell Riesner and Rachel Bellotti of The True North Collective.
The True North Collective is a gathering of un-sugar-coated conversations on authenticity, created by the real-life real-life documentation of two humans discovering and hacking what it means to reconnect with our own true north.
Topics up for discussion this week include:
- how their career backgrounds made for a perfect foil for their podcast
- how Rachel’s cancer battle in her teens made her question her identity
- how their approach to life brought them together
- their plans for a more nomadic lifestyle in 2021
- how the conversations they have with guests on their podcast has affirmed the goals they have with it
- how they’ve opened up more as their show has evolved
- why being “messy” in life makes living more authentic
- why they started the Amplify mini-series, to share the untold stories of black, indigenous, and people of colour
- why we need to stop, listen, and truly learn about what others are going through
- why we need to use our platforms more to help those that don’t have one of their own
- the episodes that have stood out for them, and why
- why getting things wrong is perfectly normal
- why new podcasters should follow Nike’s slogan, and just do it when it comes to starting their show
- who their personal heroes are, and why
Settle back for an engaging episode where Jenell and Rachel talk about why we need to look at our lives to see if we’re making the most of our opportunities.
