I got to chat with CTP, who is the former producer and co-host of the Barbell Shrugged Podcast. This was a really fun conversation for me because we talk about the craft of podcasting, storytelling, and videography. CTP has played a part in helping some really well known podcasts get off the ground like Mike Cazayoux’s and Julie Foucher’s. Some things we chat about in this episode:

  • How CTP went from being a pizza delivery guy for 5 years to producing a podcast
  • Why storytelling through videos and audio helps you learn
  • Loving the craft and embracing the suck

Show Notes:

  • (7:00) – Pizza delivery to producing a podcast
  • (14:00) – The “Hero” factor of the CrossFit Games
  • (22:15) – When preparation met opportunity and the testing began
  • (25:00) – Storytelling: Audiobooks vs Podcasts
  • (27:43) – Your brain on podcasts
  • (28:20) – What’s going through your head when you sit down to edit and tell the story?
  • (32:00) – Daydreaming and love of the craft
  • (38:41) – Cliche advice is king
  • (40:30) – “Pistol Grippers” and Three Six Mafia
  • (42:00) – Embracing the suck
  • (47:25) – Roles of being a producer
  • (50:25) – Doing research for content creation and finding out what your market wants

Today’s podcast is brought to you by audible.com. Something cool I recommend you try if you want to get the most out of reading a book is to pick something you’re obviously really curious about. Listen to it on audible. Then go ahead and listen to the author talk about it an on a podcast episode. That discussion aspect is a game changer. We touch on that a little bit in this episode. But give it a shot. You can get a free audiobook and 30 day free trial here.If you enjoyed this episode, the greatest compliment you can give is by sharing it with someone that might enjoy it or somewhere on the web. And if you’re a boss — head over to iTunes and leave a 5 star review!
