Odd Dad On Fire- AKA Talking Shop w/ Emily Prokop: ODO 150
May’s guest of the month is one of my oldest podcast friends. She’s a podcaster, podcast editor, consultant, and author. From The Story Behind, Hate to Weight, and E-Podcast Productions, it’s Emily Prokop.
I really didn’t know where this “interview” was gonna go. But, Considering we are both passionate about podcasting and are podcast editors, I should have expected we would have spent so much time talking shop. What can I say? You put a couple of podcast editors together and all we can talk about is plugins and breath noises. We gripe about people who want the “podcast franchise” handed to them. Also, we discuss some of our favorite podcasters. What would happen if Apple made a podcast creation app? The difference between Apple vs Android users in podcasting, and why I can’t go to the She Podcasts Live conference. Of course there’s also Emily’s podcast recommendation, “Girl In Space.”
Emily Prokop holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism and has worked in newspapers, magazines, and publishing. She has always loved trivia, fun facts, and useless knowledge. In 2015, she and her friend James decided to use their penchant for collecting trivia by hosting the Classy Little Podcast. When that show ended a year later, the trivia started building up in her brain again, not to mention countless time spent falling down Google rabbit holes. With that, plus a lot of coaxing from Nick from the Epic Film Guys podcast, she got behind the mic again and The Story Behind was born.
Abandoned on a dying ship in the farthest reaches of known space, a young scientist fights for survival (and patience with the on-board A.I.). Who is she? No one knows. But a lot of dangerous entities really want to find out.
