Meet Robyn Wilson, the fearless and empathetic interviewer behind The One, a podcast featuring everyday people and the love stories that make them unique.
The One was “spurred out of jealousy,” Robyn says. She had been helping her husband, Phil Wilson, with his podcast (more about that below), and decided that she wanted something of her own. Hearing other people’s love stories made her happy, so she decided to go with that.
In this conversation, you’ll learn more about how Robyn approaches her interviews, what it was like to have the microphone turned on her and Phil, what it was like to make Vue Weekly’s Best of Edmonton list, and how the podcast gives her an opportunity to bring joy. Have a listen.
Robyn made the following recommendations:
- That’s So Maven, Andrea Beça and Lauren Dary’s interview show by, for and about female entrepreneurs;
- The Expats, Adam Rozenhart’s smooth-voiced show about the experience of living abroad;
- Baconhound, Phil Wilson’s celebrated food blog, and the Off Menu podcast that goes with it.
Robyn is up to her ears in homework right now as she pursues her degree in social work, so the podcast is on a wee break. But the episodes are evergreen, so dive into the back catalogue. And if you want to tell the world about your love story, Robyn would to hear from you on Twitter (@theone_podcast and @joyfulfollies) or by email.
